Honey Espresso is the latest pop-up food cart servicing the Brisbane city area, serving guilt free snacks and coffee.
The two busy bees behind Honey Espresso are Renee, a freelance photojournalist and one of the five sisters of South Brisbane cafe Five Sisters, and Stephanie – ‘avid traveller, sometimes writer’ with a background in psychology. The thing the friends have in common is a passion for good, nutritious food. Born out of the love of ‘procrasti-cooking’, something I can definitely identify with, Honey Espresso has turned itself into a growing business selling ‘wholesome, nutritious, refined sugar-free, gluten free and vegan treats’… And all of a sudden I’m feeling guilty about the Golden Gaytime I ate on the weekend.
The range includes flourless chocolate and avocado brownies; apple, banana and date logs; orange and date bliss bites; bircher muesli and orange and almond baby cakes, all packaged and ready to ‘grab-n-go’. Along with a freshly made espresso coffee, one of these tasty morsels is the perfect guilt-free snack to keep you full of energy through the day. With the use of the Five Sisters commercial kitchen just down the road, you can guarantee that everything is fresh from the kitchen and made locally.
So where can you buy these nutritious treats, along with an espresso, for the ultimate pick-me-up? Thanks to a Brisbane City Council initiative, a space has been made available out the front of GOMA, near the Kurilpa Bridge (aka the Tank St footbridge, running between Brisbane CBD and South Bank) for the girls to set up shop. They are operating out of a pop-up cart in this location for the next six months, at which point the space is up for grabs via application to the council.
Further to the pop-up cart, Honey Espresso will also deliver made-to-order baked goods to your door, and will cater for events. If that’s not enough, they even provide a professional photography service for your special occasions. All of this is available to book through the website: www.honeyespresso.com.au.
