Clancy’s Espresso is a cute coffee nook housed in an old weatherboard-clad cottage in Norman Park, on the corner of Wynnum Road and Balmoral Street.
Owned by Clancy Sonter-Kelso, barista extraordinaire, and Oliver Burscough, (Director of Woodster’s Furniture & Carpentry), the fit-out is minimalist with white subway tiles, marble and timber counter and bench seating lined along one wall.
Try Rueben Me The Wrong with sliced pastrami, sauerkraut, dill pickle and swiss cheese, Sweet Dreams Are Made of Cheese with grilled haloumi, beetroot spread, roasted pumpkin and creamy garlic aioli, and Nut A Pear in the World with Neufchâtel cream cheese, caramelised pear, sweet honey reduction and walnuts.
Besides coffee, Clancy’s stocks West End Tea Co’s loose leaf organic tea and HRVST ST juices.
