Our Story

At Strauss, you’ll always be welcomed with a smile by Brad and Strauss team. We’re a family-owned and operated café dedicated to offering exceptional coffee and food, combined with a chat and a catch-up. Strauss is a secluded haven from the busyness of the day-to-day, where you can take time to gather your thoughts or recharge with friends.


A haven for coffee lovers down a laneway off Elizabeth Street in the Brisbane CBD, we brew delicious flat whites and lattes using our very own Strauss House Blend and long blacks and espressos from single origin beans, rotated weekly for variety. Our coffee is complemented by a full-drinks menu. We are also licensed.


Watch at Strauss’ open kitchen as the Strass team prepares the mouth-watering meals and delicious food from our seasonally-inspired menu. Dine in or takeaway for breakfast and lunch or a bite in between.

With everything ‘home-made’ including the roast meats, condiments and granola, every meal or morsel is harvest fresh and wholesome.
