it starts with a thought
It was a dream of Stones Throw owner, Adam Dartnall, to one day own and operate a cafe. Whilst sitting at his desk at home completing his thesis at uni, he would get sidetracked with ideas of how his dream cafe would look and feel. After graduating however, Adam pursued a completely different industry to owning a cafe as he felt pressured to get a "real job". What did that mean exactly?
What Adam soon discovered was his passion for owning a cafe would consume him.
In 2012, Adam was in the right place at the right time and through serendipitous connections built a close relationship with Sydney based Belaroma Coffee Roasters. Belaroma had a fresh new headquarters in Stones Corner, Brisbane. At the back was an office and coffee training centre and at the front was a small coffee shop. Belaroma invited Adam to build the coffee shop under the name Belaroma and a long, fruitful relationship grew. More excitingly, so did the customer following thanks to the excellent coffee being produced.
Now in 2017, Belaroma Coffee Roasters have expanded and moved to a larger location in Newstead and Adam has renamed and grown the once small coffee shop into a beautiful Melbourne-esk cafe that offers an amazing food menu designed by Chef Regan Prince and the same quality Belaroma Coffee that everyone has come to love.
