Exploring Albion

Located in the inner north-eastern suburb of Albion, Crosby Road has developed from an industrial area to a trendy little hub where you’ll find something for just about everyone.

And like the area, coffee roaster Fonzie Abbott is also developing, branching out from coffee to beer, and now distilling too. The vibe here is relaxed and friendly so it makes for the perfect office – you’ll often see people working away on their laptops here.  Owner Dan Pappas aims to be a book end location for locals, starting their day here with coffee, and ending it with a few drinks in the evening.

Wallrocks Antiques has been in Albion since 2009, after making the move from its original Woolloongabba location where it thrived for over 30 years. They import eighteenth and nineteenth century French and English antiques, travelling overseas regularly to hand source their stock helping to ensure authenticity.

When it comes to lunch and dinner, there’s no going past Ruggers Restaurant and Bar, set in the historic grounds of Brothers Rugby Club, one Queensland’s oldest rugby clubs. The restaurant focuses on fresh produce and ingredients offering budget friendly quality family food. Owner Matt Moses has a focus on gluten free offerings, with everything made from scratch. In his own words, nothing is out of a bottle, nothing is out of a jar.

So with all that and more, why not head over to the Crosby Park vicinity for yourself and check out what else you can uncover here.
