Cool coffee spots of Springfield

Journeys Kitchen & Bar

Stupendous waffles loaded with bacon and maple, icecream, berries and edibles flowers are just one of the standouts on the menu at Journeys Kitchen & Bar. The décor is chic and sparky – think pendant lighting and white bentwood chairs and liberal splashes of blond timber. Gluten-free options abound on the menu and burger lovers have their prayers answered too – they’re served here with waffle fries. For your sipping pleasure, the Toby’s Estate coffee is on song and the loaded shakes are Insta-worthy. Open 6am to 5pm daily and until 9pm on Friday nights.

Journeys Kitchen & Bar,  51 Barry Alexander Drive, 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.

Moselles

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).

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.
