Sitting pretty on a sun-soaked ridge, hip Side Piece Coffee sits on a raised patio within Varsity’s newer four-tower urban precinct, offering sweeping views toward Tamborine Mountain and Lamington National Park in the distance. The patio welcome pooches and has ample shaded seating, whilst the large contemporary indoor seating area embraces an olive-toned industrial feel with polished concrete, copper pipes and floor to ceiling windows so you can’t miss the view.

The three brains behind bites and brews are Dylan JamsaLee King and Miles Gaebel, former Manager of Tarte Bakery, who all had long relationships with hospitality (think No Name Lane and Moo Moo) before starting their new fling with Side Piece.

These three know their way around coffee and food, serving a strikingly simple and delicious menu along with the signature blend from Brisbane-based roasters The Black Lab Coffee Co. Their preferred Platinum Blend is a medium roast, rich in nuttiness, with mild fruit and toffee aromas, from three bean origins perfect for an amazing espresso.

The menu is similarly inspired thanks to the trio’s “small, simple and delicious” philosophy, and includes such delights as the B’N’E Toastie (below bottom), with bacon, free-range eggs, Swiss and Red Cheddar with pickles and house BBQ sauce on toasted sourdough. The Kimcheese Toastie is another locals’ favourite featuring Eddy and Wolf Kimchi, three cheeses, chilli jam and spring onions on toasted sourdough.

Other impressive menu offerings include the pork or stay tofu SP Ban Mi with chilli mayo, fresh herbs, spring onions, pickled carrots and soy dressing, and it’s hard to go passed the stacked “Sandos”—the Chicken Sando (below) with avocado, Zuni pickles, toasted almonds, cos and dill mayo with optional chilli oil, will satisfy any hunger.
