Must try: aja coffeehouse, Elizabeth Arcade, Brisbane

Looking for a new place to eat in Brisbane City?

aja coffeehouse, Charlotte St, Brisbane

Opened 8 weeks ago, aja coffeehouse offers a fresh and well-priced menu of Asian-fusion dishes, Aussie burgers and continental breakfasts or simply a place for coffee and a dessert.

Service is quick and professional and the premises are spotless. You could go there for a work-lunch (as I have done, several times), girls’ catch-up, brekky or casual date and feel welcome.

Stylish, spotless and relaxed. What's not to love?

I’ve taken some of my fussiest friends there, and aja hasn’t missed a beat. The salt ‘n pepper calamari is unbelievably good and the presentation, lovely. Take my advice: Say YES to the fries (crispy, salty, sweet and spicy!). Your low-carb day can wait.

Salt 'n pepper calamari to die for

aja is located at the Charlotte St entrance to Elizabeth Arcade and is open Monday to Thursday 7am-6pm, Friday 7am-9pm and Saturday 9am-9pm (closed Sunday). Catering is available with 48 hours notice ph. (07) 3161 2691.

Opening a business in this economy is gutsy. Aja is a young, family outfit and they’re really very good. Give them some love, Brisbane.

    I will look for it when I return to Brisbane. My favorite coffee spot in all the world is Giacosa in Florence, but it is a bit far to go when I am at home.

    Hi Theresa,
    I don’t go into the city much, but I will definitely give this place a go next time I’m in there, looks nice and sounds like it might be right up my alley so to speak. Thank You for the info.

      You’re welcome! I like the Asian-fusion, without the confusion (how many times I’ve been told in other places that there are no prawns and yet, I find myself reacting…) Here, you can say what you want and be sure to get it (without surprises). I also like that it’s not noisy (eating in the adjoing arcade is something else).
