Nothing can stand between Brisbanites and their favourite orbs of tasty dough, as the ridiculous number of doughnut joints that just keep popping up around town shows. But sometimes you just need to grab one of those sweet treats on the go — which is exactly what's inspired the city's newest doughnut joint.
When you have a hankering for freshly baked deliciousness of the cinnamon, Nutella-filled or homemade strawberry jam-oozing kind, you can roll into Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee. Located next to the The Glen Hotel in Eight Mile Plains, it's designed for hungry doughnut lovers to roll into one of the four allocated parking bays, zip in for a coffee and/or doughnut and zip back out again.
Given just how mouthwatering their gooey Nutella-flavoured offerings are (see above), it's not just a gimmicky idea — it's a smart one. If you want to streamline your snack-and-caffeine pitstop even further, you can also text ahead to place your order.
As well as giving everyone yet another reason to eat more doughnuts, Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee also offers up a slice of the city's history thanks to its ties to its namesake. Charles Baker bought the land the cafe and adjacent hotel now stand on back in 1863, which has since seen a pub open there in 1865, and Cobb & Co. coaches stopping by on their way between Brisbane and Southport from 1875. We're guessing they didn't feast on doughnuts, though.
Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee is now open at 24 Gaskell Street, Eight Mile Plains. Check out their Facebook page for more information.
