Get your morning fix at one of these Ipswich cafes

For those who like to take it easy in the morning with a freshly brewed coffee and a sweet or savoury treat to banish the hunger pangs, you can’t go past one of these delicious Ipswich cafes. 

Urban Pantry

Urban Pantry

Urban Pantry has quickly become a mecca for coffee lovers, with Byron Bay coffee brand BUN coffee, boasting organic, Fair Trade, shade-grown rainforest or Australian grown beans with a flavour to savour. Be tempted by the delicious breakfast menu and if you've come with a partner, indulge in the Urban brekkie board for two with spinach and feta omelette, bacon, mushrooms, haloumi, grilled tomato, chipotle sausage, house made beans and sourdough – what a mouthful. 

Seed Coffee

Seed Coffee is a humble little cafe that serves up tasty cakes, fresh and healthy food and excellent coffee. What started as a cupcake business for the two owners and friends, Elisha and Hayley, blossomed into this cosy cafe located on Limestone St

Cactus Espresso Bar

Cactus Espresso Bar

Housed in an old cake shop that was popular with locals for decades, the cafe has retained some of the nostalgic feel, with the scrumptious sweets cabinet keeping locals coming back. While the breakfast menu is short and sweet, each meal is made with love and certainly delivers on taste. 

Ellen and Rod

After developing their own trademark coffee grinds, Ellen and Rod are using True Grit coffee to take over the Ipswich caffeine scene. The perfect morning pick-me-up can be found in a single origin coffee and fresh pastry or dine in on the lambs fry pie with bacon in a thick gravy – because mornings are made better with bacon. 



Serving up everything from light lunches and snacks to hearty main meals and desserts, Fourthchild will have grumbling tummies quickly satisfied. Using locally sourced ingredients from the Lockyer Valley and Campos Coffee ready to brew, the team behind Fourthchild prepare everything fresh on site, and do so with a smile. 

116 Laneway

Coffee connoisseurs flock to this espresso nook, where upturned crates against brick walls give a very Melbourne feel ... but with typical Ipswich-style laid-back friendliness. Pop in for a quick caffeine hit and muffin or lounge around for cafe eats and a decadent milkshake. 

Beans & Greens Organic Café

Beans and Greens Organic Cafe

Beans & Greens has sprouted up in Ipswich and locals couldn’t be happier. With a variety of vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free options available, the cafe focuses on delicious, wholesome and nutritious food options, while sourcing local produce where possible. 

Strictly Coffee

Not one, not two, but three coffee blends are on offer to coffee fanatics. Choose from the house blend, guest blend or single origin for your caffeine hit and pair with freshly baked treats from The Cake Lady – there's no food fluff at this joint.  

Rafter and Rose

Rafter and Rose

Taking over picturesque Laneway 17 and a small historic shop, Rafter and Rose is the definition of a quaint and cosy cafe. With exposed brick walls and a country feel, the must-try menu reflects the outlay with freshly made croissants and brownies, eggs with bacon jam and french toast brioche.
