Nestled under the Duhig Building at the St Lucia campus, Merlo Coffee at University of Queensland offers students, university staff and visitors a quick grab and go style, perfect for that much-needed coffee hit between classes.

With covered indoor and outdoor seating, the cafe is also a fantastic place to sit, study and enjoy your fresh espresso with a bite to eat.

For those wanting something a bit more substantial, we also offer a great range of delicious items on our menu (see more below). So, whether you need a quick caffeine fix or some lunch, the Merlo cafe at UQ has got you covered.

Flip for Free!

If you pop in from 2pm to 3pm, you can flip a coin with one of our baristas and choose a side. If you guess heads or tails correctly, your coffee is on the house!
