About Unico Espresso

Thorneside locals need not stray far from home for an aromatic coffee and a sneaky sweet treat with Unico Espresso café sitting on Mooroondu Road, just a block back from Queens Esplanade. This popular locale is filled with a welcoming vibe and bright natural light, fitted out in trendy adornments, from funky patterned cushions to drop globes encased in wire caging and buzzing with cheery energy from early in the morning. Make a quick drive by to pick up a takeaway coffee, or reserve time to linger over a tasty meal, such as Aguate – whole avocado on sourdough with Danish feta, micro herbs and lemon; or delve into the likes of sweet vanilla waffles with honeycomb semifreddo. Don’t forget to check out the daily specials board for extra taste tempters like chocolate muffins.

Something fresh
There is always something fresh, new and exciting happening with this little community driven cafe on the bay. Great coffee by Toby's Estate and friendly staff have a chat.


Don't believe the facebook page. No pancakes. No waffles. Went elsewhere



Unico has a clear understanding of how coffee should be served.....consistently amazing! The food, venue, location and service are top notch. A must try!


Love Unico so much! Awesome cold press coffee and food. Got to love a place that remembers your name. Friendly, happy smiling faces that obviously love keeping their customers well caffeinated and well fed! Well done to Soph and Joel for all their hard work.

Wee Grandma

DELIGHTFUL... We come over from Scotland every year to visit our family & this is our favourite wee home from home coffee experience in Queensland. The service, the food the coffee... Impeccable!


Always Enticing
Ever since Unico opened its doors we have watched them grow and expand, constantly refining what they do, and how they do it. The coffee is wonderful, the eats are always interesting and tasty and the service is always friendly. We have a small B&B just a stroll down the road and we never hesitate recommending Unico to our guests. It's a little gem in Thorneside!
