Silky Oak Espresso

Northsiders, prepare for a silky and smooth start to your mornings.

The proprietors of the newest Northside cafe to brighten the early hours of Brisbanite's days are obviously morning people, and they want you to be as well. Silky Oak Espresso only operates from 6am until noon, but it is as smooth by name as it is by nature — and so are its caffeinated brews.

Those piping hot cuppas come courtesy of Toby's Estate coffee, with chai, mocha and hot chocolate also on offer. If that's not enough to perk you up, then perhaps the house twist on the affogato — complete with rich vanilla bean gelato — is, particularly when the weather's warm (aka most of the year — this is Queensland after all).

Whether you're greeting the morning with a takeaway dose of perkiness on the way to work or stopping and savouring your daily boost in the cafe's small outdoor area, you'll need a bite to eat as well — and of course Silky Oak Espresso delivers in that domain too. Baked goods, ranging from biscuits to cakes to pastries, have your stomach covered. If you're after something healthier, don't despair, as they'll soon be added to the menu.
