Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee


If you’re a Brisbane south-­‐sider you might have an inkling as to who Charles Baker is, but now he lends his name to a delicious new business at Eight Mile Plains. In 1863 Charles Baker bought the land on which the renowned Glen Hotel at Eight Mile Plains stands today. He was granted a publican's license on 12 December 1865, and Bakers Hotel, now the Glen Hotel, was officially opened for trade.


In 1875 when Cobb & Co. Coaches established a change-­‐station on their daily route from Brisbane to Southport, the hotel took on a new life, providing hot meals, cold ale, and sweet delicious treats for the long road that lay in wait.


Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee is now open offering daily travellers and locals fresh cinnamon donuts baked on site daily served alongside barista brewed espresso coffee. Spoil yourself with a freshly baked cinnamon, Nutella-­filled or homemade strawberry jam-filled donut today (or three, or six…).

Plus, Brisbane’s first donut parking means you can now roll in to pick up your morning fix in no time at all! Text ahead your order to 0484 243 489.

Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee, located at 24 Gaskell Street just off Logan Road at Eight Mile Plains, is open Monday - Saturday from 6.00am-12.00pm (closed public holidays).
