Best car wash cafes in Brisbane

If your idea of a pleasant weekend doesn’t include expending energy to wash your car, then why not take it to one of these excellent car wash cafes?

You can let someone else do the hard yards, while you kick back and relax over a coffee and the weekend papers.

Gabba Car Spa Cafe

Gabba Car Spa in Kangaroo Point is a relaxing way to spend a Saturday morning. Get your car gleaming with one of 9 car hand wash treatments available. Choose from options such as the least costly Wash Only Spa, featuring a simple exterior clean, or a mid-range Supreme Spa for a thorough exterior and interior spruce up. At the top of the wash list is the Ultimate Car Spa which, as the name suggests, is a thorough pampering for your car.

While your car is being given the once over by a team of professional staff you can wait in the air conditioned cafe and enjoy a snack and organic coffee and use the free WiFi. This car spa even has a dog wash so you can kill two weekend chores with one stone.

New Era Hand Car Wash Cafe

Touting themselves as No.1 in Australia is the New Era Hand Car Wash Cafe. Located just south of the CBD, they offer less choice of car wash packages but a number of further extras you can add to each depending on the condition of your vehicle. These include a roof clean or pet hair removal.

The four packages are Out & Out (exterior clean), In & Out (exterior and interior clean), Super Era (In & Out plus extra details like leather conditioning) and Presidential (Super Era plus further detailing such as hand wax and polish). They only use quality car cleaning products.

Eco Blue Car Wash Cafe

North of the river in Kedron is the Eco Blue Car Wash Cafe which is an environmentally conscientious car wash outfit. They use recycled water, hand wash cars with wool mitts and use quality ph neutral products to protect Brisbane’s waterways. This doesn’t mean you’re paying more for a car wash either; there are six packages to choose from which are all good value for money. With the Eco Premium, you pay more, but you get a free coffee and with the Eco Executive you get free coffee and cake. Extra services include things like carpet & seat shampooing and anti-bacterial air conditioning treatment.

Hoppy’s Hand Wash Cafe

Since it’s accessed from several locations around Brisbane, including Bowen Hills, Toowong and Norman Park, Hoppy’s Hand Wash Cafe is a convenient go-to car wash cafe. There are five main wash options: Exterior, Wash ‘N Vac, Super, Special and Deluxe. Each option, apart from the basic Exterior, comes with a combo upgrade which involves an interior plastic trim clean and sanitisation. There is also a range of extras such as anti-rust treatment, leather conditioning and steam cleaning carpets.
