Brisbane Cafe Review: The Little Prince, Woollongabba

We were looking for somewhere new yesterday, and decided to check out the Little Prince, which is a nice little coffee bar tucked into the Princess Theatre in Woolloongabba. They’re serving up Cup Coffee’s sensational Five Star Day blend, pouring shots from a La Marzocco (I was a little disappointed that the Mistral I’d seen on Beanhunter wasn’t in play yesterday), and serving them up with some pretty nice latte art.

The double-walled (not Bodum) glasses for the piccolos were also pretty nice.

Sadly, we were also eating breakfast – and my taste bud objectivity when it came to the coffee was a little clouded by the honey, yoghurt, and tasty muesli that I was eating at the same time that I was drinking my coffee. But it was a nice mix.

The staff were incredibly friendly (it helps that we’ve got a pretty cute baby girl who wins just about anybody over). It’s very family friendly – with a basket of toys. Like this one. To play with.

I’d say they’ve succeeded in creating a little place with atmosphere, good coffee, and a light selection of meals, that I’d be happy to sit in for a while.

It’s also especially handy to the Mater Hospital. Parking is a bit of a pain – don’t park in the free shopping centre car park next door – despite the shared name, the two Princess facilities have nothing to do with each other, and we came back to the car to get a stern talking to that involved the words “towing” and “lucky”…
