New: Espresso Bonsai

From bonsais to beans, the Coast’s newest coffee nook has taken over the space where Chevron Island’s much-loved bonsai plant nursery used to be.

The cute little cottage style café pays homage to its former glory, in name and appearance, with abundant greenery offsetting the fresh natural styling.

Coffee is the name of the game at Espresso Bonsai with owner Christian extremely passionate about offering the best possible blends.

The Baristas are equally as enthusiastic about the quality of their creations offering alternative options such as V60 pour overs – a filtered style of coffee preferred by seasoned coffee drinkers offering a smoother, sweeter taste than a long black.

Beans are supplied by the Gold Coast’s own Blackboard Coffee who source their beans from plantations around the world, ethically and sustainably.

Espresso Bonsai also use Urban Finca beans, roasters who are passionate about telling the farmers story.

Acai bowls, smoothies, takeaway sandwiches, salads and toasties will soon be available for both dining in and to take away.

If exceptional coffee and people who care about what they do is high on your love list, make the drive to the tree lined streets of Chevron Island to check out Espresso Bonsai.

HOURS: 5.30AM to 2PM

LOCATION: 66 Thomas Drive, Chevron Island.
