Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee

Eight Mile Plains

Charles Baker Donuts & Coffee at Eight Mile Plains is a unique drive-by donut bakery and coffee hut that has its roots in 153 year history of The Glen Hotel.

First built in 1863 by publican Charles Baker, The Glen Hotel (then The Baker Hotel) was first licensed and opened for trade in 1865. Since 1875 it has been a landmark stopover for weary, thirsty and hungry travellers on the Cobb and Co route and now, once again patrons can make a refuel stop for sweet treats and a pick-me-up coffee.
