Taste is a popular kitchenware and home wares emporium that was located on James Street for several years before relocating to Red Hill in July 2016. When a charming 140 year old grocer’s building complete with a caretakers residence became available for sale, new Taste was born. Taste is housed in one of Brisbane’s most iconic small old buildings retaining much of the character and then some of the original building.
Today, Taste has a corner shop offering of yesteryear with boutique groceries and quality homewares and gifts that reflect the era of the building but the modernity of taste of the modern consumer. Each morning the iconic coffee machine is turned on allowing locals and those further afield a premium cup of Toby’s Estate boutique coffee. Bread crafted by local bakers, and croissants made with French butter are piled into paper bags for the early risers.
Those that like to linger can sup on coffee and choose from cakes and savoury bakes from the best bakers and patissiers in Brisbane, Jocelyn’s, Crust & Co and Dannys.
