The original Merlo Coffee cafe, our Queen Street store opened in 1992 and has been serving up our signature fresh espresso for Brisbane’s CBD workers, shoppers and travellers ever since.

Centrally located on Queen Street, this cafe is the perfect pit stop on the way to work and a great place to escape the office.

Stop by and be welcomed by our friendly and energetic team and truly escape the daily grind, even if it’s just for ten minutes. Inside is a fresh, modern cafe with wooden accents and clean, white styling, as well as a great selection of modern artworks.


If you pop in from 2pm to 3pm, you can play flip for free with our baristas! Flip a playing card over and if you’ve chosen the right colour, the coffee is on the house!
