Best cafe First Fruits Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

Nice coffee, but for me a great coffee is one where you enjoy every sip to the last drop. The first three sips... Great... But after that, it is just nice coffee. Always get super friendly service here and the coffee is good, but there are better on the coast.

Best cafe Raw Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

Nice coffee, extracted well & not burnt! Live muso. Arcade setting. A little breezy today but would be ideal on a nicer day.

Coffee was awesome, Avo fetta crush was on point, loved that I could have my dog here and they have a menu for them also. This cafe is well worth a visit.

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

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

Had a flat white here the other day and have to say it wasn't that great. Yes, it was good, but since my first visit, every subsequent visit to Percy's Corner has been less and less spectacular. It is one of a very few coffee shops that I rely on to get a great coffee, and lately, I've only experienced nice coffees...not great.

Visited here because of the reviews and the wasn’t disappointed. Beautifully smooth Latte and the Blueberry Bagel with Cream Cheese was delicious. Great atmosphere and excellent service. If I’m in the area again this will be my go to!

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 nice coffee with good flavour and milk consistency. Food service was a bit slow and over priced ( we had the Loaded Avo) but tasty.

I think a young girl was still learning about coffee at shop. My latte was very flat and not tasty at all, so I left my latte almost 3/4 full. I was so disappointed. But I liked chicken turkish bread. It was very tasty.

Always good coffee!! Pick yourself up some flowers while you're getting your morning brew :)

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

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.

The coffee is always well made. This time was no exception. Small double shot flat white. I had some banana bread which hit the spot. Then I followed with short black. The table water is sparkling which is nice. The only down side of the experience was the volume of the back ground music. It was very in your face. That aside the coffee is of the best to be had on the Gold Coast


Lot 1

Surfers Paradise

Best cafe Lot 1 in gold-coast for 2016

Beans are Forza blend from Veniziano. Coffee was well made.

Dropped in to this little cafe during our exploring this morning and were pleasantly satisfied with the coffee and bite to eat. A bit cramped though with the number of people there and the rushing, stressed staff. Good for a take away in future.

Good coffee and service. Veneziano beans always good.

Best cafe Daark Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

Amazing coffee. One of the best I have had on the coast with great service to back it up.

Excellent service Passionate staff Their single origin is great


Elk Espresso


Best cafe Elk Espresso in gold-coast for 2016

Nice long black with cream, but the large could be a little larger :)

Wow!! What a wonderful experience. The staff- cheerful, friendly and welcoming. The venue, bright and sunny but with softly shady spots for those less inclined to the morning sunshine and warmth. The service was prompt and professional. The coffee was full of flavour- dark, sweet caramelised natural sugars with hints of hazelnut and citrus from a group of friendly, cheerful baristas.

Fantastic food. Awesome service and great tasting coffee.

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

Great coffee, great food, great service & great atmosphere.

Smooth blend, great location, friendly, professional staff.

Best cafe Paradox Coffee Roasters in gold-coast for 2016

Great coffee and food. Definitely one of the best in Surfers.

Amazing coffee which is roasted on premises. Super friendly and helpful staff who pointed us in the direction of the children’s play area so our toddler could amuse himself. Highly recommend visiting for both an amazing coffee and somewhere the kids can play without annoying everyone.


Canteen Coffee

Burleigh Heads

Best cafe Canteen Coffee in gold-coast for 2016

Great food options. All day breaky and lunch. Gluten free choices. Great coffee nice flavour and well made.

Cool little place-lots of retro fit out. Coffee is different flavour but still good


No Name Lane


Best cafe No Name Lane in gold-coast for 2016

Great coffee as always, service has gone backwards since the expansion unfortunetly

The coffee was great, the wait staff not so much. Learn to read your customers please, interrupting conversation to ask them to pay when the cafe is only half full is a little rude...
