Sit down with a bowl of muesli, a burger and chips or chia pudding at Darwin’s – UQ’s most loved café.

Whether you’re meeting with colleagues or friends on the plush indoor couches, or you’re catching up over cappuccinos under the leafy palms outside, Darwin’s is the perfect spot to get together.    

Grab a takeaway option, or pull up a chair for a long lunch. With our head chef adding new items each month, there's always a reason to pay the team at Darwin's a visit.

Darwin’s baristas are proud to brew Vittoria Coffee. Not only does Vittoria Coffee have a delicious and smooth taste, it is 100% Arabica, Australian Certified Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified. 

How does Rainforest Alliance Certification make a difference?

  • It helps farmers better manage their land, control costs, improve crop quality and, often, increase yields.
  • It ensures farm workers have decent working conditions and wages, as well as access to education, healthcare and respectable housing for their families.
  • It protects forestlands, conserves wildlife habitat, requires reforestation and provides climate benefits.

In addition, Vittoria is proud to support OzHarvest – a food-rescue program that delivers otherwise thrown-out food to over 800 charities.
