Welcome from Uptown Apartments. When you decide to stay with us in Kangaroo Point you will want to know a few places where you can enjoy great coffee, good food and maybe a wine or two. So we have put this post together for you as a bit of a shortcut to enjoyment.
Black Sheep Coffee is regarded as possibly the best coffee in Brisbane. This cafe is about a 5-minute drive from our Kangaroo Point apartments, and as I mentioned many people say it’s the best coffee in Brisbane. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think. It is located at 109 Norman Street in Woolloongabba. Black Sheep was born from two creatives with a love of coffee and a passion for detail who enjoy creating an experience and bringing customers, family and friends along on the journey. Black Sheep is about thinking, seeing, and experiencing differently. The style is very tactile. Whether it’s running your fingers through a sack of green beans, feeling a well crafted mug in your hands or appreciating the design of a hand built espresso machine – it’s all about touch.
We really love Summer House ion Kangaroo Point for lunch and dinner through the week and they also open for weekend breakfast. Summer House Restaurant Bar & Café is Kangaroo Point’s premier dining spot. Serving an array of unique dishes from across the globe they have also put focus on pouring from some of their favourite boutique wine makers. They have created cocktails designed to send you on a journey through a tropical oasis. The leafy courtyard surrounded by towering palms, lit up by lanterns & fire torches matched up with live music from their unique local singer-songwriters is second to none. Uptown Apartments invite you all to enjoy this beautiful slice of paradise.
If you want to enjoy a few bevvies either before or after dinner Sixes and Sevens is a uniquely Queensland style Public House, reflecting upon a forgotten era, much like the way that the demolition on site revealed a number of postcards and photos found behind the hearth of the fireplace. The relaxed casual atmosphere has made Sixes and Sevens an everyday local for the New Farm residents and the broader community over the bridge.
Housed in a gabled 1878 cottage, Sixes and Sevens embodies a low-key antiquarian charm with a contemporary twist. As part of its transformation from heritage wallflower to handsome public house, the venue’s classic white facade now takes pride of place on the street scape. Inside, a variety of intimate lounge spaces and long tables of reclaimed timber create a welcoming haunt for solo locals, cosy couples and celebratory groups.
At Sixes and Sevens the food and beverage style is simple, clever, and affordable, designed to complement an everyday experience. Ciders, beer on tap, wine served from the barrel in carafes, and fresh cocktails served in pitchers to share are amongst the unique offerings at Sixes and Sevens.
So, enjoy your stay with us in Kangaroo Point and enjoy the wonderful food, coffee and wines of Brisbane from David and Nicki Lee.
