Best cafe First Fruits Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

Great service and the coffee was very nice. Couldn't fault them on the food or service. Only a small cafe, and a little hard to find but a hidden gem! Well worth going to.

The coffee is always great and the staff friendly and efficient. So good to have a great coffee spot in Ashmore

Wow! Great coffee and service from the team members, I’ll becoming back again next time I’m travelling this way. The Bagel was great as well

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

Couldn’t fault anything. Has my top three boxes checked for a good coffee experience: 1. Black and milky coffees done well ✔️ 2. Nice set up and aesthetics ✔️ 3. Friendly banter ✔️ No wonder it’s consistently rated as one of the best on the coast. Had a one-one: espresso on Ethiopia- delicious fruity aroma as expected, rum and raisin and caramel notes. Lower acidity than I expected which was a pleasant surprise. Amazing espresso that warrants sipping slowly like a good whiskey. Flat white up next: 6oz cup a perfect choice as it still packed a kick after an espresso. Delicious texture and lovely sweetness. Definitely more of a modern style of coffee blend, I dig it. This place is a must-visit if you’re on the coast.

Great coffee on the Gold Coast. Small hole in the whole style. Decent food too!

Best cafe Papercup Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

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

Very fast service, friendly staff, good coffee, great atmosphere, dog friendly

Don’t let the location fool you, busy little shop with easy food options and excellent fast service. The coffee is consistently good and did I mention, fast.

Very doubtful shopfront and location, would never have tried it if not for beanhunter. HOWEVER, once I walked through the door I was instantly filled with confidence. Great vibe inside. Coffee was good. Very smooth, however green and lightly roasted beans are not my pick. My espresso was fruity and soft, well made, a 7.5 overall. Service was good.

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

Coffee wasn’t great - I drink a small double shot latte and this cup was a bit weak, didn’t like their shot & wide 8oz cup. Cool decor, open early and confinement location. But don’t think the coffee deserves rating it has received.

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

Best cafe Daark Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

Best place to visit with the best coffee on the Gold Coast!! Staff are highly trained always serve the perfect coffee, service and food is also top notch Couldn’t recommend a better place to visit for a coffee and breakfast.


Elk Espresso


Best cafe Elk Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

Flat white was strong and smooth. A bloody good coffee!

Our daily cafe of choice during our time at Broadbeach. Great coffee and great service. Often you have to wait for a table, but it's 100% worth the wait

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.

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

Thank the lord we who venture to the lost land of Coolangatta can get decent specialty coffee. Previously this was a Toby’s estate account. Now with Open house roasters. Equipment looks great, Mythos grinders, cafe racer 3group. Coffee was balanced as an espresso. House blend a little milky and washed out. Will return

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!

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

Beautiful house blend, great food and service as well! Will be back.

My go-to coffee spot in Surfers. Roasted on site, what more could you ask? Always interesting blends and single O coffees to try.

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.


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

Best coffee in Broadbeach, and always the right temperature for greatest flavour. Coffee is not meant to be HOT.

Great coffee! Doppio ristretto great aroma and citrus forward palate with a pleasant smooth after taste. Perfect temperature for immediate drinking when served.

Long Black made with care. Consistent flavour for the entire cup. Very enjoyable
