Just footsteps from the sands of Surfers Paradise beach sits one of Soul Boardwalk’s shining stars of all thing’s espresso, ESPL Coffee. Using Blackboard Coffee Roasters blend combined with Aussie barista curated MILKLAB milk has earned ESPL a cracking reputation amongst locals and tourists alike. They ranked second on Tourism Queensland’s 2020 best coffee in all of Surfers Paradise list and a 5-star rating across sites like BeanHunter and Zomato. Aside from their extensive espresso menu, the team also stocks a heap of other tasty options like HRVST ST cold pressed juices and an impressive range of kombucha. Whilst the name of ESPL’s game is certainly coffee they also offer a range of delectable café breakfast-y eats designed to go hand in hand with your morning pick-me-up.

Cast your eye to the glass cabinet and you’ll see a range of locally made treats like the made muffins and twice baked almond croissants that are made fresh daily in the neighboring suburb of Isle of Capri and sourced from Bisou Bakery. Both are known to fly off the shelves and sell out before lunch so if you’re keen on trying ESPL’s baked goods (which you definitely should be) you should swing by early. Baked daily are their range of sourdough breads which you can purchase for $10 and score a free coffee! ESPL is open from 6am to 4pm every day of the week (including weekends!) to satisfy your caffeination needs right here at Soul Boardwalk.
