Barefoot Barista, Palm Beach

UPDATE April 2013: With the expansion of Barefoot Barista to double its size, there’s a new kitchen and the proud boast that all food is made in house. The restaurant is funky and fabulous, always packed because of its rustic fare and great coffee. There’s lots of room to dine overlooking the street or in the quieter courtyard out the back. Definitely a place to see and be seen!


BarefootBarista1Barefoot Barista, one of Palm Beach’s favourite coffee spots, is just off the main drag, but with plenty of parking around. You get the feeling that despite its laid back appearance and its cool beachy feel there’s a whole lot of serious business going on here. In reality, the fitout, which achieves this understated look, is serious craft work – gunmetal brown wrought iron stools and handcrafted rough-hewn wood furniture topped with iron. The barista, ‘DJ’, may be wearing thongs, but the standout ultra modern coffee machine makes the statement that I’m about to be served serious coffee. It’s Campos coffee, smooth, rich, creamy and delicious, served in one of Dean Hyland’s award-winning cafés, the other being Borough of Burleigh Heads.

Due to limited kitchen size, the well-priced food is wholesome, using fresh ingredients but premade. The glass cabinet is packed full of choices: baked goodies, a choice of cooked items, fresh fruit salad, bircher muesli, sourdough sandwiches, breakfast wraps or a choice from the blackboard menu. Cakes, slices and muffins are all home baked.

BarefootBarista3There’s a choice of seating – out the front at converted wine barrel tables, on high stools at high island benches in the restaurant itself, or walk through the back to comfortable seating in the enclosed courtyard. Locals come for takeaways or sit chatting over cake and coffee, the aroma of freshly ground coffee drifting over them. They’re greeted by name by the barista and chat comfortably. Even for those on lunchtime break, it’s all very casual and relaxed…Serious coffee in a very chilled out space.

    Have experienced the sour faced, pretentious staff of Barefoot Barista for the last time. Patronage is made to feel like an intrusion. I asked if they did scrambled eggs, I received rolled eyes and told it was too much hassle. Once you could have possibly overlooked this for the coffee (that they supposedly excel at), though this and the food now leave little to be desired. If you are prepared to wait over 20 minutes or an average coffee, with an experience matching the boxing day sales, this is your place.
