For all your matcha dreams to come true, head down to Matcha Honpo. It’s nestled inside of the lobby of Student One Wharf Street so you don’t have to go far. Enjoy its matcha frappes, matcha lattes and matcha sundaes.
Poke bowls galore
Poke bowls are one of the latest #foodtrends to hit Brisbane, and now you can enjoy it every day at My Poke. Don’t know what poke is? It’s kind of like a deconstructed bowl of sushi, where you get to pick all the ingredients. Choose between a poke or curry bowl and customise your base, protein, salad and sauce. It’s tasty, fresh and healthy, and My Poke has seats both inside and out to enjoy it.
Healthy choices on-the-go
When you’re rushing out the door and need something that’s quick, but still healthy, drop by cute little Pocket Micro Cafe. Serving coffee and juice, takeaway toasties and delicious salad jars, this is the perfect stop on your way to class. Our favourite? The ‘classic’ toastie with smoked ham and gooey cheese. We are drolling already.
Your hip local bar (and restaurant)
Every student needs student-friendly drinks and affordable eats nearby, day and night. Say hello to Hellcat Maggie. This atmospheric restaurant and bar dishes up breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus coffee and alcoholic beverages. Tuck in to burgers, salads, wings and loaded fries, or home-style favourites like lasagne and meatballs. The best part? Most eats are under $15. It also has its own beer on tap designed just for students (ie. it’s cheap). This is the perfect spot to hang out with friends, in style.
A quick coffee and snack fix
The trendy Humanity Coffee Co is literally just metres away from Student One’s Adelaide Street building entrance. Get your coffee and juice fix from this repurposed shipping container or grab a takeaway snack from the hot box. Think: bacon and egg rolls, sausage rolls and more, plus plenty of baked goodies on the counter like gluten free bars, florentines and cookies. There’s plenty of outdoor seating for those who want to linger and its tips jar is always full of all kinds of international currencies.

Top it off with one of its signature shakes.
