20 Apr, 2023, 3:10 pm



We’ve all woken up after one of those long nights where we barely remember what happened. It happens to the best of us. If you’ve experienced this, then you’ve probably also experienced the inevitable hangover that comes along with it. The room is spinning, your mouth is dry, and you’re desperately trying to piece together what happened the night before. It’s all a blur, and the one thing you’re probably craving to rid you of your hangover is caffeine, caffeine, and more caffeine.

Coffee is, after all, quite possibly one of the best hangover cures out there. But it can’t just be any coffee. It’s got to be some fresh, delicious, and steaming coffee that packs a punch of caffeine and hits you the moment you taste it. Most people swear by a good cup of coffee to cure a hangover. It gives you that energy boost you need to wake up and feel less sluggish, and, ultimately, get you on your feet as you kiss the hangover jitters goodbye. The Gold Coast has some of the best coffee in Queensland. Here are 5 of them.
