Espresso Train Café in Nundah is Australia’s first social enterprise café and is a place where everyone’s welcome.
We not only serve delicious, seasonal food in our sunny courtyard setting, but by doing so, we can provide meaningful work for people facing barriers to employment.
Espresso Train is no ordinary café!
- part of an award-winning social enterprise – we were thrilled to win Australia’s Best Small Social Enterprise Award in 2015 and we’ve been a finalist in the Awards every other year
- not owned by anyone – our staff are members of the Nundah Community Enterprises Cooperative (NCEC or Co-op)
- a not-for-profit registered charity
- inclusive – some staff sit on our Board along with expert advisors to make important decisions about how we run the business.
Delicious food first
We know that to keep you coming back for more, the quality of our food must be outstanding – and it is! As we don’t receive any permanent funding, we rely upon our great food and quality service to survive and thrive. In fact, Espresso Train Café is consistently one of the highest-rated cafes on Brisbane’s northside. Our tasty food is all made from scratch on the premises – find out more about the café and our catering services.
