Positioned along Wickham St, Johnny Brown’s beatnik espresso den, and soon to be bar, provides Valley-goers with a special DiBella blend.
A hipster’s dream can be found within Johnny Brown’s red curtain, where guests can perch on a leather lounge and listen to blues music on the record player while enjoying their morning grind.
Owner John Castanho alongside barista Eduardo Cordeiro approached DiBella roastery to craft a specific blend for Johnny Brown’s upon their recent opening, dubbed Poets.
Homemade Portuguese tarts, toasted peri peri chicken ciabattas, Mediterranean cheeses, vegetarian treats and pan-fried chourico (blood sausage) are amongst the dishes accompanying their drinks menu.
While Johnny Brown’s café has been serving espresso in the front-of-house, they’’ve been developing a tapas and wine bar in the rear, expected to open in one-two months.
The bar will feature tapas from across the globe, Middle Eastern and Central American cuisines, as well as boutique wines, single malt scotches and a house pale ale developed in an East Brisbane brewery.
From Friday through Sunday nights, guests will be able to dine while enjoying cabaret, flamenco and classical guitar performances.
When the Anywhere Theatre Festival takes off, local performers are also anticipated to grace Johnny Brown’s stage.
From the menu through to the décor and performers, Johnny Brown’s café focus remains on promoting local talent.
Until the bar opens, the venue is only open Monday to Friday.
