UPDATE April 2013: Commune has achieved cult status on GFGC, with a huge band of loyal followers won over by its rustic organic food and generous servings. It’s also highly affordable, with the most expensive dish priced at $15. Whether you want blueberry pancakes, Mushrooms and asparagus piled on toast with Persian fetta, the trad. Eggs Bene or just a hand squeezed fresh juice or smoothie, the crew will happily oblige. There’s no apathy here, just ‘can do’ attitude to burn!
The Campos coffee is full-bodied and luscious, expertly brewed. Sit inside facing out to the street and the music blasts away to rev you up for the day. If you want a quieter spot you can take your favourite mag outside to the seating which stretches out around the side of the restaurant and across the next shopfront. Commune’s hit the spot with the locals by providing great food and service at the right price without the frills.
Commune, in Burleigh Heads, definitely has the funky alternative vibe to match its name. There’s a really cool guy with tats serving behind the counter, lots of people hanging out reading, chatting over coffee, an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, recycled hessian pouffés, recycled timber furnishings…Ah, that word ‘recycled’…
Yes, Commune is the epitome of an eco-friendly, environmentally aware café, serving wholesome healthy food, great coffee and freshly made juices.
From the tiny kitchen come bacon and egg rolls for breakfast, and brekkie wraps and tortillas on the weekend. On display is a range of freshly made salads for $8, sandwiches, natural and bircher muesli, banana bread, walnut loaf, and other sweets and cakes. The Campos coffee is smooth and delicious and the freshly made juices delight customers walking in from a day at the beach. Commune participates in ‘Meat free Mondays’ and lots of vegetarian food options are sold.
Owners Mitch and Nerissa have sought to combine their background in the hospitality industry with their passion for the environment in this venture. The service is openly friendly, even making the time for a chat. There are even some eco friendly products for sale. Nestled down on the Lower Gold Coast Highway, this slightly left of centre café feels right at home on the southern end of Gold Coast – an impressively friendly, laid back alternative.
