Caffeine Chronicles: Gramercy

  • Food & Booze
Gramercy, an Old English term (and also a famed park in New York), means “to express surprise or gratitude”, and that is precisely what Gramercy Espresso & Eats does. Tucked away in the laneway entrance of the Wintergarden, this small café focuses on delivering high quality coffee and house made food. Brewing beans sourced from Reuben Hills Roastery in Sydney, Gramercy has certainly created a buzz since owner Mitch Suchowacki opened the doors in January this year. Whether it’s Monday morning syndrome, hump day dilemmas, or you’re just feeling the caffeine pangs – Brisbanites are rousing and returning to life with a mix of Gramercy’s sweet blends. Perhaps a double shot flat white will get them moving?  The Reuben Hills house espresso is a thick blend that provides a glossy golden crema – delicious! Paired with the Gramercy avocado smash (avo on toasted sourdough with a parsley labne, lemon, S+P) and Kimbra’s “Settle Down”, life instantly becames far more bearable.
