I have always had this silly ambition to be able to walk into a cafe and say, “I’ll have the usual thanks,” walk to my usual seat and read a book or draw something or be profoud. Just the usual. And when I started at QUT I found a cafe in which I could see myself being a regular. I ordered the same coffee every time, regular mocha. It was a busy little cafe on the campus grounds so I couldnt exactly have a regular table but I was half way there. But something disastrous happened.
I came to Garden’s Point this year… and it was gone. My faithful cafe with its familiar smell and sound was absent. Obviously I was crushed.
But, despair not! The cafe has reopened, completely refurbished and even more fancy and lovable than before. It is called The Pantry and is situated in the old sandstone building next to the kidney lawn. So, if you’re looking for a quiet, homey, and slightly european-feeling get-away have a wander in.
P.S. try the waffles – holy cow.
