One of many coffee shops in the Chermside shopping centre but unique as it sells bread products and croissants as well as a great range of delicious cakes and slices. Coffee is very good and I found the service to be friendly and efficient. Prices are a little high but food is of good quality. There is outside seating, set... More

The café has amazing coffee & food, however their coffee maker... omg, cranky old woman! Every single time I or my friends go there she is so rude! A real shocker - a total turn-off for customers. French Twist Chermside, do yourself a favour & fire the cranky old dark-haired woman making your coffees! & another thing... don't charge for... More

The middle aged woman who served us was unfriendly, she should not be in hospitality, all of the younger staff were lovely

gorgeous coffee, desserts so yummy but a tad on the expensive side so hence its a treat to go there for coffee and cake as you will normally spend over $20 easily

Thank michelle p
