My friend and I ate lunch and had coffee on Saturday. It was busy and parking not so convenient. However, the lunch we had was great. The corn fritters with rocket salad was beautiful. The toasted chicken Tuscan was also good. Highly recommend for a light lunch, very fresh and tasty!

The coffee is a drawcard, though the breakfast burrito used to be the bomb with a sweet relish, almost chutney-like side dish. However, the relish as a side is now gone & apparently replaced with a sub-optimal relish which is contained within. There is no recognition of this apparent relish within & when asking for more relish as a side... More

Elixir does the best coffee consistently, parking can be tricky during the week and I've found the food isn't consistent, sometimes delicious and sometimes very average. The cakes and biscuits have been very nice.

Went here with friends had a 2 hr wait for food. Kids were hungry. Will not visit again. More customer service training required for staff.

We go regularly to Elixir - we love the coffee. If we have time, we'll sit down for a breakfast as well, but the parking is really a problem. Of course it's only a problem because its so popular - which is testament to the taste and quality, but having said that, we've actually been put off by the parking... More

Great coffee and service - very friendly despite being busy. Don't let the industrial location fool you - it's worth the trip. Quality & quantity of food is excellent, and consistent. Been three times and always good. Plenty GF options. There was a confusion over my order (roast vege salad) which was rectified at no charge, quickly, and with the... More

I'm yet to try a better cup of coffee than what is produced at Elixir Coffee. Their cappuccino is nothing short of perfection. I was pleasantly surprised to find they have expanded their operations to seat more people. Not wanting to miss an opportunity, my wife and I stayed for breakfast and we're not disappointed. Eggs Benedict and Breakfast Burrito... More

Went to this coffee shop after hearing about the great coffee. Interesting concept with the shop in the roasting house. However, what I found was awful bitter coffee and the food ordinary. Table Staff were pleasant, friendly and efficient. The coffee shop was crowded, the outlook was in an industrial area - yuk, parking was difficult. This was a most... More

Having visited quite a few times, I am always pleased with the friendly staff. Queueing up for take away coffee (although I'm mostly there for beans) can be a pain, as there isn't a very open waiting area in front of their LM, but it's worth it. Especially for a Vellouto blend cup, certainly one of the best espresso-based coffees... More

This was once my very favourite location for coffee in Brisbane but have had several dissappointing experiences lately. I have never been attracted to the food - standard coffee shop fave but even the coffee has been sub par of late. The speed of service is always great and the pricing reasonable but I sadly admit to looking for a... More
