Too late for brekky, but too early for lunch?

Do you like to sleep in a little bit? Perhaps you don't have time for your morning coffee until after you drop the kids off at school? It's no secret that the Gold Coast is a beautiful place whatever the time of day, so there's no rush when it comes to getting your morning feed. Brunch is a great time to head to your local cafe and indulge in a nutritious meal and pick-me-up coffee. Forget about waiting in those morning coffee lines at the crack of dawn and beat that lunchtime meal rush. Aren't usually one for brunch? These four Gold Coast cafes will change your mind.
