WE RECOMMEND
Laneways and Café Tour, from $79* per person.
Brisbane laneways and streets are full of cafes and restaurants, over 1,500 at last count, but go to any city and the best coffee is never on the main street. Stop at selected laneway cafes, chat to passionate baristas, learn about the brewing process and of course, enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack. On this relaxed tour you’ll also pick up some great tips on eating and drinking from Brisbanites who know every cool bar and café in town, see a little street art and finish the day with a relaxing stop off at a laneway cafe/bar.
