There’s really only one way to do Coorparoo, and that’s to eat and drink your way through the south side suburb.

There’s cafes upon cafes and restaurants upon restaurants – making for healthy competition and an unique array of offerings.

One of those offerings is the Tiny Tree Cafe – an antique store, art gallery, cafe and bonsai tree nursery all in one.

Not far from the old Cooparoo Myer Centre site, lies Factory 51 – a heritage brick building that’s been transformed into a funky bar and bistro.

If you really want to treat your taste buds, Coorparoo is home to Bamiyan Afghan Restaurant.

This little gem is a local favourite and if you’ve never tried Afghan food before, you’re in for an authentic delight.

If you’re more of a cook yourself type operator, you can take some fresh Coorparoo produce back to your kitchen to play with.

The suburb is home to the Olympus Cheese Factory.

But before you leave Coorparoo make sure you grab desert too.

For that, La Macelleria is a delicious option – a gelato corner store with raving reviews.
