Discover your new favourite hang out
The Southern Gold Coast is home to many things: glorious white sand beaches, pro surfers and friendly townsfolk. But a cool place to grab a coffee?

Enter, the recently established Drift Espresso — the answer to your cool-coffee-hang-out prayers.

Sitting quietly at the back of Rainbow Bay, Drift Espresso is a little more Melbourne than Gold Coast, and a welcome addition for locals craving an authentic slice of coffee culture.

With a rustic, urban edge, and large windows opening to the street, Drift Espresso serves coffee, drinks and light snacks from breakfast right through to your early afternoon caffeine hit.
While the menu is succinct, it's also very accessible. You can grab a bacon and egg roll for breakfast, a wrap for lunch, something sweet for afterwards… all washed down by some of the best coffee around.

Their talented and friendly team of baristas serve Campos Coffee, with a small (with 1 shot) costing $3.50, a medium (with 2 shots) at $4, and a large (with 3 shots) just $5. There's also an extensive range of bottled drinks, milkshakes and a fantastic fresh juice menu.

Drift Espresso has enough attitude to attract a diverse crowd —and what it lacks in coastal views, it makes up for in atmosphere. Guests enjoy their time here; whether they're tapping away on their laptops, spending time with friends, or relaxing after a day at the beach.

With the owner's attention to detail — like the kitsch antique teaspoons and the wall of gig posters — Drift Espresso is absolutely brimming with personality.

If you love living on the Gold Coast but desperately miss the "big city" lifestyle, then discover Drift Espresso and find your new favourite place for coffee.
