Espresso Moto

If there could be an Espresso Moto in every suburb that would suit us just fine thank you very much. For now though, we’ll settle for the two that make our lives infinitely better (and more caffeinated). The OG in Palmy and now, a fresh little newbie in Coolangatta.

Yes it’s true; the much-loved venue has opened a second venue on Dutton Street where That Blue House once lived. It’s a huge gain for the Cooly locals because a. All Press Coffee is life and b. the EM crew are some of the best folks around.

The team swung open their second set of doors a couple of weeks ago and the space they’ve occupied is the perfect blend of cool for their vibe. Which is of course, all of the motorbike memorabilia. If you’ve visited the Palmy site you’ll know the space boasts a bike workshop in the back dedicated to restoring classics.

Down south you’ll find shelves stacked with helmets, oil cans and various other bike-related things Dad won’t be happy I don’t know the name of.

The menu and feel of the newbie is the same but both venues are getting a menu revamp in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, head down there and try these goodies before they leave our lives forever.

Healthy ones first and this is a D E L I C I O U S dish while also helping with that shredding for summer thing people do. Hooray? It’s called Fresh Avocado Salsa and it’s house-made corn, basil and almond pesto tossed through spinach leaves and topped with pepitas on, get this, house-baked activated charcoal ciabatta toast. It’s a mouthful in every sense of the word.

The Eggs Benedict are some of the best around with fresh house made hollandaise (love you), house-baked ciabatta and definitely go the smoked salmon.

Last but absolutely not least is BANOFFEE FRENCH TOAST and be still our hearts. It’s a tower of sweet, sweet goodness served with all of the fresh caramel sauce and if you licked the plate we would never judge.

As mentioned, Espresso Moto serve All Press Espresso out of New Zealand (because they’re good at everything) and it’s definitely a fave.

So there you have it, if you know what’s good for you, you’ll make a date with Cooly this weekend.

LOCATION: 5 Dutton Street, Coolangatta
HOURS: 6am to 1.30pm

Daymaker Espresso

If we had to fabricate a fact about the Gold Coast, it would be that Miami is the smallest suburb in our seaside city. Where does it begin and end? Nobody knows. Something you do know though, is that size does not maketh the suburb and little Miami is definitely growing in one very important way – the opening of cool coffee joints way.

Lengthy introductions aside, we do speak the truth, Daymaker Espresso opened very recently and it will indeed make your day.

The sleek new space can be found on Pacific Ave next to the Pacific Ave Fruit and Meat Market and what a space it is.

Dark, moody (same) and minimalistic (not same), it’s all wooden furniture, benches and panels with black metal seating, a polished concrete floor, overhanging greenery and a concrete feature wall with even more greenery. So pretty much all our favourite things rolled into one.

An impressive coffee bar is also made with polished concrete and apparently it’s one huge piece just built right in there. People and their cleverness hey.

The coffee is the goods, brought to you all the way from Hawthorne in Melbourne, where all the coffee-obsessed kids can be found.

Owners Dylan and Andrew, who you will have seen in your PREVIOUS favourite coffee shops, are quite obviously coffee connoisseurs so they chose their absolute fave, which nobody else on the Coast is serving. Praise the coffee Gods.

At the moment you can grab yourself some small food goodies like croissants and various other baked thangs from Burleigh Baker and soon enough there’ll be a full breakfast and lunch menu.

Which will, food lovers, fully cater to everyone from the vegans to the meat lovers and be a small, seasonal menu that we are very excited about.

Happy days Miami folk. And the rest of you to be honest, well worth a little trip to taste that delicious, delicious coffee.

LOCATION: 44 Pacific Ave, Miami
HOURS: From 5.30am to 12pm daily (until the food arrives)

Espresso 151

Better known for pies and deep fried everything, the scores of office workers in the vicinity now have healthy, wholefood options to beat that pesky 3pm slump.

The rustic, open, warehouse-style fitout features splashes of copper, exposed timber and rawhide rugs and almost everything within the space is made with recycled goods.

Serving Campos coffee, healthy breakfast and lunch options including wraps, acai bowls, savoury muffins and raw treats, Espresso 151 can be found next door to Burleigh’s newest workout hotspot, Elevation (hence the health foods).

Not only for gym goers though, there’s plenty of takeaway options for this warehouse district including chia bowls, yoghurt with fresh fruit and raw slices for dessert!

For those who need an extra energy hit, the Green Smoothie Bowl is packed full of protein.

If you don’t feel like jumping on the healthy eating bandwagon just yet (or if it’s cheat day) there’s a naughty corner filled with baked pastries – think croissants and crusty sweet treats.

Passionate about a holistic, healthy lifestyle owners Ali and Callum Davidson previously ran Project Sparta Fitness next door and when they decided to expand the space, the addition of a café was a no-brainer.

Stop by for a coffee and healthy breakfast or a tasty, wholesome snack on the go. There’s plenty of parking too, quite the bonus these days.

HOURS: 6am to 2.30pm seven days a week

LOCATION: 151 West Burleigh Rd, West Burleigh
