Hula Girl Espresso puts coffee, guitars and vintage wears under one roof in Burleigh Heads

Coffee, pre-1970s guitars, vintage clothing and 60s music. What a glorious combination, right? Well, that's exactly what you'll find when you step inside the Gold Coast's coolest new hang – Hula Girl Espresso, which has just opened off the beaten track in the residential pocket of Koala Park in Burleigh Heads.


Blink and you’ll miss it, but this eclectic new space created by talented local lady Fernanda Borgo is worth keeping your eye out for. Now, it’s effectively in a residential area, so this is certainly not your stereotypical location for a takeaway-coffee nook. Though, Hula Girl Espresso is much more than just a coffee hang – it’s a collaborative space that also features a retail component for Surf City Vintage Instruments, which showcases and sells high-end vintage guitars, as well as a vintage clothing collection by local business Kashmir Vintage.

Fernanda, the owner and barista, is a familiar face on the local cafe scene, having worked across a number of the coast’s most popular coffee spots. Armed with beans from boutique Byron Bay roaster Marvell Street and organic teas from Mayde Tea, Hula Girl Espresso churns out the good stuff from 7:00 am (closed Wednesdays), with small bites like chocolate brownies and to-die-for caramel slices, which can be enjoyed as you wander through the colourful vintage-inspired space. If you’re looking for a morning coffee stop, a takeaway latte on your way to Tallebudgera Creek, or you just want a quiet coffee nook away from the hustle and bustle, then go and find Hula Girl Espresso. Just look for the rad vintage bike out the front.
