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.
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.

Open 9am-5.30pm Mon, Tues, Wed and Fri; 9am-9pm on Thurs, 9am-5pm on Sat and 10am-4pm on Sun.
