There are lots of cool things about Brew Box Coffee, starting with an address beginning ‘The Tardis, Wilson St …’. From this old police box in the Merchant City, owner Laura Cameron offers lunchtime workers and passers-by a hot option (always vegan) and a choice of two sandwiches (one always veggie). Everything feels healthy, from a chickpea and wholewheat noodle soup with Persian herbs, to a growling laksa ‘pot noodle’ packed with beansprouts, coriander and black sesame seeds. It’s simple, lovely stuff. The menu changes every three days and comes full circle every four weeks. Brew Box make a real effort to keep packaging and waste to a minimum, and to engage their regulars, too, with a ‘loyalty app’ that updates with the new menu, and snazzily accrues rewards.
