Nundah is becoming a hive of great cafés and this one claims to be the best. I'm not sure if that's true, but it's certainly the most feel-good café in the area. The outdoor seating gets plenty of sunshine on cold winter mornings, making it the perfect spot for a hot cappuccino and freshly made cake. (It's also largely enclosed, which is great for mums with fast-moving toddlers.)
Not just for treats, they also prepare delicious lunches and take-away meals, made with free-range eggs, herbs from their garden and fresh local produce. You won't find deep fried or overly processed foods on the menu, just great-tasting, wholesome meals and snacks that remind you of home. Check out the Wagyu shepherd's pie, flat white and chocolate caramel slice that I devoured earlier this week:
If that's not enough to make you feel good, this will: Espresso Train are part of the Nundah Community Enterprise Co-operative, a not-for-profit social enterprise that provides training and job opportunities for people with mental health illnesses or intellectual disabilities.
Located directly opposite Nundah station, Espresso Train is open from 6.30am Monday to Friday and they've recently extended their hours so you can pick up dinners until 6.00pm. Catering orders can be placed by phone or online through their new catering site.
