Best cafe First Fruits Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

Coffee is on POINT! These guys know what they're doing. Have experienced all that they have to offer, filter, espresso and food. Which has all been exceptional. I'll be looking forward to my next Tweed HEads visit

Unexpected location which we normally wouldn't choose but they've made a fairly comfortable space. Coffee was great and staff were very accommodating bringing water for the dog.

Best cafe Raw Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

Sooo good, if in Southport or surrounding burb its a must. Cold drip, pour over, magic, fresh menu n healthy juice bar, 5-6 different acai bowls. True gem 👍🏽

Best cafe Percy's Corner in gold-coast for 2016

Great find! Recommend seeking this little gem out if you’re this end of the coast and stuck for a good drop. Winner winner!

Single O coffee - best brew of my holiday. Would say it’s probably going to be the best in the area.

Best cafe Papercup Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

Dog friendly coffee shop, fast friendly service, excellent coffee and convenient on the go food.

Friendly service Large size latte could have been stronger Coffee was good temperature

Amazing coffee, super nice people, a little weird of a location. But very nice on the inside :)

Coffee was bland and had a funny aftertaste to it. Definitely not what I expected out of a highly rated coffee shop.

Best cafe All-Time Coffee Co. in gold-coast for 2016

Absolutely unreal coffee! I get a small double cap and it did not disappoint. Came out super quick, perfect temp and the consistency of the milk was so creamy. The coffee beans appear to be their own brand and is a nice smooth blend making it a nice flavour I could keep drinking all day. I also got a vegan donut (I’m not vegan) and it was so tasty, the dough was fluffy and I couldn’t even tell it was vegan, well done guys thank you!


Blackboard Coffee

Varsity Lakes

Best cafe Blackboard Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

These people understand coffee!!...enough said.

It is extremely rare that I would rate a coffee so highly, however it is well deserved the flavour of the coffee in the single origin doppio ristretto was perfect. Extremely smooth and no after taste. Service was fast and friendly, making the experience great. Keep up the good work!

Finally get a great coffee from BB. Been here about six times and had nice coffee here every time, but I finally get one that is worth singing about. Not sure if I am a fan of the refurb. Needs plants, and better acoustics and if they then keep selling coffee like I got today, then they would be in the top two coffee shops on the gc. This was as good as the coffee I get every time at good day coffee in tugan, which I see as the best coffee shop, hands down, because of the consistently great coffee you get there. Well done BB. Loved this coffee to the last sip.

Surfers Paradise

Best cafe Lot 1 in gold-coast for 2016

8 - Coffee is really nice 7 - Atmosphere outside was a little loud with trucks going in and out of Woolworths but the interior is great and has real personality 10 - service was fantastic and I would come back happily.

Great cafe. Nice costal atmosphere. Nice selection of food.

Really nice coffee. Once I tried I came back every day until I went home. Food is really good too, loved the French Toast

Best cafe Daark Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

This is coffee at a level rarely found. My flat white was smooth homogeneous and delicious. Service is professional and friendly. This place is worth going out of your way for.

Fantastic coffee, my number go to place for take away and sit down coffee for long black, best long black coffee I have had on the coast by far. Totally recommend it. Food is out of this world! Try the crispy hash Benedict. Fast friendly service , the staff are amazing.

One of my favourite coffee shops in the world. I go here everyday and they have never let me down. Friendliest staff, best coffee, best food and such a nice atmosphere! Couldn’t recommend this place more!


Elk Espresso


Best cafe Elk Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

At the new location. Staff were fantastic and knowledgeable. Very busy, but still managed to have a relaxed atmosphere. The food was delicious. Had a piccolo latte on Kenyan and Pork Belly Eggs Benedict.

Warning - this place has moved to the oasis shopping centre. Gorgeous beach front location. Coffee brewed to perfection. Will be back

Best cafe The Black Sheep Espresso Baa in gold-coast for 2016

This has got to be the best coffee in Coolangatta! Up here for a family holiday, and dragged my family on a 20 minute walk from North Kirra, just to try this cafe. It did not disappoint. When I placed my order, double riz and short long black, the Batista asked if I'd like to try the single or house blend or both. Both were spectacular. Food was also freaking amazing and the service was great. Well worth the 9.0 rating!

Coffee has been consistent every day and just perfect strength & temperature. Awesome view from the tables.

Best cafe Base Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

Scorching hot coffee - nothing worse when it’s served at tongue burning temp.

Visited a couple of times and each time ordered two flat whites and a double espresso. They were busy, service was friendly and coffees were a little above average

Best cafe Paradox Coffee Roasters in gold-coast for 2016

I’ve had the cold drip and a latte here and the coffee is great. Breakfast was delicious. Service is very good. The staff are very knowledgeable about their beans (which are roasted in the same building, just outside the cafe). I’ll definitely come back.

This place is a gem on the Gold Coast, best coffee by far. The Mexican on Black was delicious their house blend is really yummy and their batch is quite delicious. Service was impeccable as well


Canteen Coffee

Burleigh Heads

Best cafe Canteen Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

A very cool coffee shop. Theatre seats outside a nice touch. Ordered a double cap and it was delicious. Dark and "oily", very Aussie and very Italian. Service was friendly and efficient.

My favourite coffee shop... Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Great coffee. Every time!

Great coffee from a hipster bunch of friendly staff. Nice relaxed atmosphere


No Name Lane


Best cafe No Name Lane in gold-coast for 2016

Visited here a few times. Can be very busy but all people working here don't get too wound up. Quite relaxed and happy to deal with our complaints. There might be a wait for a coffee due to its popularity. If you are in a hurry, this is not a place. Also it can be noisy indoor too, but coffee was always good whenever I visited.

Loved it. Fast service, friendly staff, fresh and delicious breakfast and great coffee. We’ll be back!!

Visited a couple of times. Coffees were a little weak - particularly the flat whites. Also have had espressi, which were flat/bland. Service was ok on both occasions, but very robotic.
