Love Hate Espresso (Brisbane CBD, QLD)
Located near Roma Station in the city is Love Hate Espresso, a sidewalk cafe on Herschel Street near the new Meriton Apartment. This functional little joint offers a variety of food choices, from burgers to pasta and smoothies to coffees. I don't quite know how everything is at this place, but their coffee is decent (happy hour from 1:30-2:30pm!). There isn't much of a place to sit, except outside on the sidewalk, which can feel a bit dusty because of the construction, so it's not quite the ideal place to dine.
For lunch, I ordered the burger combo, with BBQ sauce in my burger. Being the burger fiend I am, I'd have to say it wasn't the best thing that I've had, but the patty was much better than a lot of places around Brissy. The bread was a bit difficult to eat, but overall, the burger was satisfying. The fries are that specially flavored one that I could never figure out. They do them at UQ's cafeterias, but for some reason, I do enjoy them. The best part, though, was that they offered Dr. Pepper as a soda choice. I'm not big on soft drinks, but Dr. Pepper is the best, hands down!
