Located under the Endeavour College of Natural Medicine, Bar Merlo, Fortitude Valley has stripped back industrial style feel and offers Merlo Private Blend coffee, a range of salad and sandwiches. The Merlo brand of coffee has wound its way into many of Queensland's tertiary institutions so I must admit I have a soft spot for their hot chocolates and paninis. The Paninis come in a range of flavours including:
Pictured above is their Breakfast Panini, served in all its glory on a paper plate. The other nice thing about Bar Merlo is it ofters a number of snack size tubs that you can fill with trail mix, chocolate sultanas or my favourite chocolate almonds. Oh and they have happy hour, so keep an eye out on the chalk board for details.
