An abundance of seating space, tasty yet customisable grain bowls, and good specialty coffee — these three qualities are what make Senate Coffee such a hit in the CBD. Located within the spacious FIVE Square, it is the brainchild of the folks behind The Populus Coffee & Food Co and Two Degrees North Coffee Co. Choose from six curated bowls, the most popular being the Pulled Pork Senate Bowl ($15) that comes with three healthy grains (quinoa, pearl barley and bulgur wheat), mixed mushrooms, carrot and herb salad, baby spinach and eight-hour braised pulled pork. You can also try your hand at crafting your own grain bowl (from $15.50 for one base, one protein and five add ons). Noteworthy items include the teriyaki roasted cod (add $4.50), braised beef cheek and furikake charred baby corn. Don't forget to complete your meal with a Coffee ($2.50) for every grain bowl ordered — the beans are roasted by Two Degrees North Coffee Co so you know your java is in good hands!
