Plant Based eating on the Gold Coast!

It has never been easier to choose an exclusively plant-based lifestyle on the Gold Coast. Only four short years ago, you could count the number of dining vendors and retailers on a single hand, yet today, there are more than 20 and growing!

So when you feel like a healthy and tasty (not to mention pretty!) meal then here are some of our favourite places in no particular order – you should try them ALL while you’re here!

Elixaba,  Robina Town Centre – Shopping can sometimes leave you a little in need of some quiet time so the Elixaba experience is just what the ashram ordered! Natural shaped timber furnishings, green hanging plants and soft music enhances the enjoyment of their plant-based delights. Order one of their ‘Garden of Eden’ cocktails complete with edible flowers to truly relax.

The LC, Miami – Australia’s first multi-vendor foodie marketplace dedicated exclusively to plant-based eating is now a reality! It’s a plant-based eater’s dreamland, where you can wander through the doors knowing nothing on the menu is off limits. Across FIVE kitchens, take your pick from the world’s first vegan kebabs to Australia’s only exclusively vegan ramen bar, 100% gluten-free pizza, or perhaps meat-less pies and sausage rolls that would convert even your most devout carnivorous friends.

Mandala & Co, Mermaid Beach – it’s the secret garden tucked off the Gold Coast Highway with a plant based menu boasting some of the best pizzas on the planet! Fully licensed, showcasing local musical talent on the weekend and with a comfortable “home like” setting!

Feed the Earthlings, Burleigh Heads – THE BEST BURGERS ON THE GOLD COAST! Seriously! The burgers from here have been voted the best burgers on the whole of the Gold Coast for 2 years running! Burgers, hot dogs, pizza’s, dim sims – if you’re craving some good old fashioned takeaway food then Earthlings is your go to!

Greenhouse Canteen, Miami and Coolangatta – this is our pic if you want to eat vegan AND drink cocktails! The Greenhouse is a haven to modern vegan dining with beautiful interiors and a menu that is sure to impress. Our pic of their dishes is their famous deconstructed beetroot burger closely followed by the chilli con carne nachos. Portion sizes are exceptional as is the wine selection including tipples produced by the Sea Shepherd.

Enjoy feasting!
