Similar to when I found out about That's What She Said Cafe & Espresso Bar, when I first drove past gSPOT Espresso, I knew that I, a mature twenty-something year old, had to pull over and try them out! gSPOT Espresso is a brightly coloured coffee container cafe located in Thornlands, a residential suburb approximately 28km from the CBD.

Looks like Eddy needs a caffeine fix!


gSPOT Espresso is open brighter and earlier than most cafes at 4am during the work week, obviously to service those poor souls who have to start work earlier than the majority of us. Because there aren't many coffee places that open this early in the morning, gSPOT Espresso is a rare gem that you should take full advantage of if you live or go to work in the area. With such a cute container, gSPOT Espresso is hard to miss, with guaranteed customer satisfaction.

The coffees were just what we needed to wake us up bright and early on a Wednesday morning, otherwise known as hump day. Service was fast, and the friendly worker who served us made engaging small talk with us while we waited. I have to admit though, it was a bit hard hearing her because of how loud it was from the passing cars - gSPOT Espresso is located on a relatively busy road.

Although gSPOT Espresso, being a takeaway coffee container cafe, does not have its own kitchen, they do serve yummy treats from Gisler's Roadside Pie Cafe. Fun fact: Gisler's, a roadside cafe, operating since 1976, is the only roadside pie cafe in Brisbane that operates 7 days a week, from 5am to 5pm. They can be found on Mount Gravatt Capalaba Rd in Burbank, just a little over a 10 minute drive from gSPOT Espresso.


gSPOT Espresso is now also open on Saturdays 5am - 11am, and they now offer toasties for $4.50 on its own or $7.50 with a regular coffee.

Being a fan of street art and graffiti, I was so impressed by the artwork on the doors of gSPOT Espresso's container, with Casper the Friendly Ghost on one door and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters on the other.

It was hard finding a cafe that opens this early in the morning, but once people find it, gSPOT Espresso will become their new favourite place. I mean, where else are you going to get your caffeine fix at 4am in the morning? Thanks for the coffees, we'll be back to try out the pastries next time round!

The owner must be hard working to make his cafe ready at 4 am. Amazing.
