If there’s two things that’ll make us get out of bed on any given morning, it’s coffee and doughnuts.
So, we almost fell off our chairs when we found out that Australia’s first coffee IN a doughnut (!!!) is launching this weekend just up the highway on the Sunshine Coast. Can you believe it?! It’s got to be one of the best combos ever invented and now we’re never going to eat anything else for breakfast. #goodbyebikinibody
Coming to you from the clever folks at Kenilworth Bakery and their new award-winning, ex-Melbourne barista Fernando, this new menu addition features a cinnamon doughnut with a hollow middle, that is lined with gooey Nutella and then filled with a single origin coffee, made specially for this epic sweet dish. We’ve got to warn you though, there’s only a small space for the coffee—so you’ll be looking at a macchiato rather than a large, milky flat white—but, when you taste it, you’ll see these guys got the proportions absolutely spot on. So, no complainin’ here!
With the 1kg doughnut already adding this Sunshine Coast bakery to the Food Trend Hall of Fame, these guys have blown our minds yet again and we couldn’t be more stoked.
Available from 6am tomorrow (Saturday), and then hopefully forever, there are only a limited number of ‘coffee in a doughnut’ being made each day, so it’s a first in, first fed situation. And, just quietly, if you hopped in the car now, and camped out front, waiting for the doors to open in the morning, we totally wouldn’t think you’re weird. Just smart.
Coinciding with the launch of this smashing way to drink coffee, is the first birthday for the Kenilworth Bakery owners, since they took over this historic space a year ago. So, you can expect live tunes and a whole lotta celebratory vibes being served with your cinnamon-coated cup of joe this weekend.
We could go on and on and on, but we’ll leave it with our latest revelation…the best things in life aren’t free—they come for $8 and are the most perfect balance of sugar and caffeine.
Oh, and don’t forget your phones, peeps. Because this is going to go down in history and if you didn’t ‘gram it, were you even a part of it?
What: Australia's first ever coffee in a doughnut
When: Launches Saturday 2 December from 6am, then available seven days from 6am to 3pm.

For massive doughnut lovers, do not leave Kenilworth without undertaking the 1kg doughnut challenge. Go on, we dare you!
