Coffee-lovers guide to the Gold Coast
If you’re a coffee connoisseur on the seemingly never-ending hunt for the perfect cup of coffee goodness, then prepare to be blown away with these 4 Gold Coast cafes.
If a coffee shop is always busy, it’s a pretty good indication they’re doing something right. From the moment this cafe opens at 7am, the team at No Name Lane are pushing out coffee after coffee to satisfied customers, quickly without compromising on quality. Located in the Oracle building in Broadbeach, come down to this rustic cafe full of funky vibes and indulge in their versatile brekky menu. If you can’t decide, the macadamia muesli with naturally sweetened yoghurt and berry compote goes perfect with their Black Sheep Coffee blends.
Where: 3 Oracle Blvd Broadbeach Gold Coast QLD
Situated on the Gold Coast Highway, Skull and Bones Espresso Boutique has got Mermaid Beach locals hooked on their great coffee, bagels and bronuts. With a prime beachside location you can grab a takeaway cup and head to the beach, or dine in and tuck into a delicious gourmet bagel with their unique wooden cutlery. With an arty emphasis put into everything created at this cafe, they have quite a loyal following on social media, with one-of-a-kind dishes that taste as good as they look.

Another Gold Coast Highway gem, the talented baristas at Push Espresso don’t know how to pour a bad coffee. Whether you’re after a cappucino, latte, long black or espresso, the Proud Mary coffee blends (based out of Melbourne, so you know it’s good) used will guarantee a great tasting caffeine hit, regardless of how you prefer it. Want something sweet to go with your coffee? The Nutella cheesecake is the perfect little treat to complement any cup. There’s also a range of more wholesome options if you want to spend the morning at Push Espresso catching up with friends over breakfast.

If you’re a bit further inland, you don’t have to travel all the way to the beach in order to get a delicious pick-me-up. Located in Benowa Gardens Shopping Centre, Base Espresso is a little hidden cafe, home to coffee that’ll have you hooked. If you’re coming in for breakfast, have one of the self-proclaimed coffee nerds pour your a cappuccino, while you browse the menu full of organic selections and raw treats. If you’re after something light, the chef at Base Espresso knows how to make a tasty acai bowl; otherwise, if you’re still a bit rusty from one too many wines last night, the Craveman Plate with free range eggs, bacon, tomato, chipolatas, mushrooms and hash browns will be the perfect cure.
Where: Benowa Gardens Shopping Centre 38/203 Ashmore Road Benowa Gold Coast QLD
