Our fave Gold Coast brekki spots!

For us Gold Coasters, a love of cafes seems to be in our DNA.

We LOVE to do breakfast, brunch and all things involving some combination of coffee and smashed avo. Thankfully, our many and diverse breakfasting needs are more than catered for by Gold Coast’s best cafes.

Here are a few of our fave’s for brekki!

Cafe D’Bar, 275 Boundary Street, Coolangatta (pictured above)

Our go-to when cruising around down south is super chill Cafe DBar, on the headland at Point Danger. This sweet cafe-slash-restaurant earns bonus points for having one of the most spectacular locations on the entire length of the Gold Coast.

Perched above the legendary waves of Duranbah and Snapper—it oozes surfy charm and the first-level dining room is the perfect posi to treat your visiting granny or aunt to brunch.

Milkman’s Daughter – 1/43 Alfred St, Mermaid Beach (pictured above)

The Milkman’s Daughter is a vegetarian cafe and eatery, serving coffee, takeaway salads and treats, as well as an all-day breakfast and lunch menu.

You can keep it sweet with dishes like lemon ricotta pancakes with custard cream, candied walnuts and peach, or you can add tofu scramble to a breakfast salad for a vibrant and protein-packed morning munch!

Niche & CoShop 4/449 Golden Four Drive, Tugun (pictured above)

It just keeps on getting better, with a fresh update to the walls with a splash of pink paint and pretty palms as well as a new seasonal menu on offer. This cute cafe has all the superfoods sprinkled throughout every single dish.

You will find beetroot smash on sourdough, poke bowls, haloumi burgers and vegan burritos, to name a few. The salted caramel acai bowl should not be a special, but added to the menu FOREVER, it’s that good.

If you’re looking for one of the best cafes on the Gold Coast, well, you’ve found it!

Mervyn Roy’s, 169 Goldern Four Drive, Bilinga (pictured above)

Occupying a vintage shopfront with a rich history and named after the owner’s father, Mervyn Roy’s cafe is family-owned and operated. Now, if the friendly team doesn’t win you over (and they will!), then the impressive assortment of edible goodness will.

Glorious slices, toasties, classic hot brekkies, burgers or, their specialty, flaky homemade scones topped with jam and cream, are all within a towel throw of the beach down in the sleepy suburb of Bilinga.
