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.
