2 Tournament Drive‚ Brookwater

If you’re looking for coffee after a round at nearby Brookwater Golf and Country Club, or after a morning’s shopping at Orion Springfield Central down the road, this is a great spot to land.

Coffee Guru is one of only three Queensland franchise outlets under the well-known brand which has cafes dotted across ACT and NSW.

Owner Greg Slack, a chef who previously had a catering company, wrote the menus and bakes everything in the loaded cabinet. Only the croissants and novelty iced cookies are brought in. Greg runs the café with his wife Vickey and together they have created a welcoming vibe.

Texan Pulled Pork Pies have been a lunchtime hit, as well as a breakfast bruschetta with poached eggs and bacon. There are plenty of gluten-free options – even the French Toast can be ordered gluten-free, with caramelised banana and bacon.

There’s a list of burger options – including a vegan version made with Mexican black beans and teamed with avo, jalapeno, vegan cheese and spicy salsa and served with chips.

Or go for a Guru Bowl, perhaps the Roast Pumpkin and Halloumi Arancini with baby leaves, pear, walnuts, aioli and balsamic.

“As the title says, it’s your place… we want people to come and take a break and just relax.”
