    Helena’s Espresso 0

    Royal Pines Marina, Ross Street, Benowa, Queensland 4217

    Once upon a time, you could only get there by crossing the bridge over Ross Street. It was the side of Royal Pines that could easily be overlooked; a quiet development housing a ‘social club’ that no one knew about…that is until the access road was amended and the little tranquil haven was opened to […]

    The Lott Espresso Bar Mermaid 0

    2395 Gold Coast Highway, Cnr. Seabeach Avenue, Mermaid Beach, Queensland 4218

    If you love the generosity of food and service in The Lott, Robina, you’ll be pleased to know that Jarrad Moore has opened The Lott Espresso Bar at Mermaid Beach with his brother Denny. In far smaller premises than their Robina café, by necessity there’s also a smaller menu. Fortunately, the kitchen extends back behind […]

    Rossini 0

    1/2705 Gold Coast Highway, Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    Eating Italian food without an accompanying glass of fine wine would be a travesty indeed! It’s food which welcomes us with love, celebrating the generosity of those who made it and the joy of life itself! We’d love to eat Italian food every week, but add in the cost of a licensed venue and the […]

    79 Main Western Road, North Tamborine, Queensland 4272

    Established in 2004 by Jon and Kim Heslop, Witches Falls has been rated a ‘5-Star winery’ by James Halliday – reason enough to visit! When we talk about wineries on Mount Tamborine, it’s best to clear one thing up at the start. Without exception, this is not where the grapes are grown, but where they […]

    2007 Gold Coast Highway, Miami, Queensland 4220

    It was the meal we didn’t expect! Dining in a party of six, we were visiting Miami Rice, a restaurant underneath the Outrigger Resort on the Gold Coast Highway.

    Sparrow Eating House 0

    2/32 Lavarack Road, Nobby Beach, Queensland 4218

    “Where should we dine on the Gold Coast?” Restaurant names given in answer to that question often fall into two camps: chefs and restaurateurs (and sometimes the two in combination)! Young, dynamic and visionary, there’s a clutch of restaurateurs who are defining what could be termed ‘Gold Coast style’: often single-concept eateries which are ideally […]

  • Cavalier 5

    Cavalier Bar & Supper 0

    1710 Gold Coast Highway, Burleigh Heads, Queensland 4220

    There’s nothing that peels away the mystique and romance of an experience quite like exposing its inner workings. Sometimes when I’ve spent the day cooking for an extended family dinner or event, I sit down to eat, only to find that I’m not hungry at all. It’s as though my senses are already saturated with […]

  • Espresso Moto 6

    Espresso Moto 0

    1389 Gold Coast Highway, Palm Beach, Queensland 4221

    Zany, quirky, different! It’s the coast’s first motorbike café: an espresso bar eatery and motorcycle repair shop combined. ‘Moto’. Choose your meaning: ‘motorbike’, ‘motorcycle’, ‘motivated’, or ‘in motion’. In a way, the café is all of these. Espresso Moto is the brainchild of business partners Jordan Stubbs and Shannon Baier-Dry who, with their partners Nikki […]

    Riviera Plaza, 4/7 Campbell Street (Cnr Panitz St.), Bundall, Queensland 4217

    Adrian Grazioli always had a dream of opening his own patisserie.

Hidden away in a tiny suburban shopping centre in Sorrento, […]

    Not Tonight 0

    50B Nerang Street, Southport, Queensland 4215

    “Not Tonight.” There’s a seductive challenge in those words. An enigma. It’s a saying that’s steeped in history; a famous dismissal that leaves plenty of room for alternatives. Let’s get creative! If not tonight, when? “Then how about today?” I throw out the alternative, and we meet for lunch instead. Location, location, location! It’s often […]

    “This town is steeped in a rich tapestry of colourful history.” A former holiday ground for the Kombumerri people, since the 1860s the Gold Coast has been a place of big personalities.
