Campos Coffee, Fortitude Valley

Campos Coffee, Fortitude Valley. One of the first few cafés I visited since my arrival in Brisbane and one of the cafés in Brisbane that I patronised more than once.
Tucked in an alley of the better part of Brisbane's red light district, this café is constantly filled with chatter of their loyal customers. Why? Because their food is that good.
The road leading to the café. We actually had to queue up along the walls because the line was so long and we came in as a big group.
First up, the menu. Yes, the menu was extensive and on top of that, they change their menu every month. We were definitely spoiled for choice. And if you're not too pleased with the menu selection for the month, just come back next month. But don't worry, every menu item is well thought out and it will definitely send your tastebuds asking for more. If you want to visualise their menu, just head on to the Campos Coffee QLD Facebook page, where they will upload photos of their monthly menu. And don't worry if you won't be able to see your favourite menu item the following month. Campos has a set list of menu items that won't be changing anytime soon.
Iced mocha. You can ask for no whipped cream.
Iced latté. Very very bitter.
Iced mocha.
Campos fry up.
Hot smoked salmon.
Pork belly.
Eggs benedict.
Perfectly cooked eggs benedict, with that rich velvety hollandaise sauce.
Chocolate ricotta pancakes.
Roast chicken.
I was definitely impressed with the food. Though, the price did stop me from returning to the café for the next 8 months (Yes, I backdated the blog post to reflect the timeframe when I went there).
Would I return?
Yes, but only if I skip café hunts for the next half a year.
Food: 5/5
Ambience: 5/5
Service: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4.5/5
