    Sorry Nikki,

    I was up there recently and it appeared to be a bit of a coffee wasteland (from my limited stay - tried a couple of cafes which I would definitely NOT recommend).

    Im sure there are some locals who would know the scoop (hopefully :-/).

    But if you have a bit of time, a little trip up into the hills to the Mount Tambourine Coffee Plantation would be well worth it. See this thread:

    try you own plunger - would be better than any so called espresso I have had on the GC - but then again a local might have a decent haunt.

    Cheers

    Thanks for your help so far but probably would rather do without or drink tea than organise myself enough for a plunger. Burleigh a bit far out of the way. We are up in Southport. Any gold coast CSers out there???

    Just to let you all know (and for comments from any GC CSs) Finally found a reasonably good coffee at Bumbles in Surfers Paradise. Nice little spot on the Nerang river too. didnt have time to eat there but I believe their brekkies are quite good

    I invested in a stovetop and brought my own roast with me when I was in this neck of the woods...
