Cool coffee spots of Springfield

Raw Energy

The Raw Energy way is fresh and vibrant food, all made in-house.  They have award winning coffee and fresh juices, all day breakfast and lunch bowls.  The décor is fresh and funky – think bold splashes of colour, and wooden finishes. The Raw Energy philosophy is going back to basics using fresh produce.  Their menu doesn’t have fried or processed foods, but they do have burgers and Australian sulfur free bacon.  The family-owned business sources local in season fruit and veg.  The family friendly cafe overlooks the Orion Lagoon and has made the decision to go plastic free.

Raw Energy Springfield,  6 Yoga Way, Springfield Central.

Bookface Orion

Bookshops with coffee are one of life’s fabulous pleasures and here at Bookface Orion, the combination plays out beautifully – you can literally sip away in the presence of ten thousand tales  – and cool bookish types bent over their laptops and newspapers and tomes. There’s a simple menu of sweet and savoury things, properly good coffee and plenty of cool drinks on offer too. Open 9am-5.30pm Mon, Tues, Wed and Fri; 9am-9pm on Thurs, 9am-5pm on Sat and 10am-4pm on Sun.

Bookface Orion, town centre, Orion Springfield.



Lotus Cafe

This family-owned café serves Black Sheep coffee roasted in Brisbane and has quite a following for their Acai bowls – and an all-day menu of wholesome crowd-pleaser breakfasts and lunches, and good things baked on-site. If a green cold-pressed juice is your go-to kickstarter for the day, this is the café for you. Open 7am-3pm weekdays and 7am to noon Saturday and Sunday.

Lotus Cafe 145 Sinnathamby Bvd, Springfield Central.





If you can drag your eyes away from the impressive cakes counter here at Moselles, there are lovely lake views to take in from tables on the deck. This is a breezy spot for lingering brunches and lunches, smoothies and coffee.  You’ll find delightful Vietnamese offerings woven into the menu of classics too. Open daily – yes, including weekends (7am-9pm Saturday and 7am-4pm Sunday).

Moselles Restaurant, 18 Springfield Lakes Bouolevard, Springfield Lakes.



La Mocha

Fancy a cooling cold drip coffee on a hot day? This is the place you’ll need to go – the La Mocha team is even doing a nifty ‘pocket rocket’ size in a little bottle perfect for pre-gym session kick. In addition to their specialty coffee, La Mocha also offers up a menu of healthy options, from fruity acai bowls to fresh-made Turkish pide with labna and falafel.

La Mocha, 15/31 Springfield Lakes Blvd, Springfield Lakes.
