Caffeine Fix: where to get a coffee (or baby chino) on the Gold Coast
When it comes to coffee, the Gold Coast has your back – and every other season! It doesn’t matter whether you’re an early bird or a night owl – everyone needs their caffeine fix, and Paradise Resort is blessed with plenty of places to get yours both nearby and on site.
Bumbles, Surfers Paradise
This buzz-worthy café offers a bumper food menu, but it’s their selection of both hot and cold, alcoholic and zero-alcohol drinks that will have you winging it to River Drive. The iced chai tea and bambinocino are just a few standouts among their expansive offerings.
Order: Their Vienna coffee
No Name Lane, Broadbeach
It’s tucked away down a little lane (hence the name – or, rather, lack thereof) but No Name Lane is probably already on your radar as a must visit for your next coffee catch-up. The hype around their coffee is that it’s some of the best on the Gold Coast, and their food offerings delicious to match.
Order: Their ‘kids’ steamer’
Common Coffee, Surfers and Broadbeach
With locations in both Surfers Paradise and Pacific Fair, you’re never too far from a Common Coffee fix. Lovers of quality beans will relish Common Coffee’s offering of both single origin and blends, particularly their House Blend – it combines the best of Peruvian and Colombian beans for an unforgettable flavour.
Order: Their white hot chocolate
Buoy Oh Buoy, Paradise Point
One of Paradise Point’s best kept secrets, Buoy Oh Buoy is dripping with nautical nostalgia and quality drips to match. We love their reasonably priced coffee and their hot chocolate, but they also do a turmeric latte if you’re feeling a spicy kick.
Order: Their kid-friendly flavoured milks
Sandbar, Surfers Paradise
Taking prime position on the Surfers Paradise esplanade, Sandbar is an old favourite that underwent an impressive transformation in 2020. Why get your coffee to go when you can sit back and relax in their chic, beachy fit out? They also offer alcoholic beverages and a great lunch menu, if you’d like to extend your visit.
Order: Their affogato (it’s alcohol free)
BONUS: Stay close to home at our Poolside Café and Bar
Why venture beyond Paradise Resort when you can enjoy a delicious cup of joe right here?! Overlooking the water park, it’s open daily from the early morning until the late evening and offers a great selection of grab and go snacks or delicious meals.
Order: Absolutely everything
