  • Café Caribou 0

    443 Golden Four Dr, Tugun, Queensland 4224

    Owning a café is everyone’s dream, or so it seems. It’s easy to be a critic, to go into a new place for breakfast and say that your eggs should have been cooked a different way, that service wasn’t fast enough, or that you don’t like the way the waitress was dressed… But what we […]

  • Ragdoll Bar & Dining Lounge 0

    49 James St, Burleigh Heads, Queensland 4220

    James Street Burleigh is hotly contested space, the T-section of a dining hub that provides a range of casual dining choices. But choice also means competition, closures and change of ownership, the case with Finders Keepers. In a quick turnaround, new owners Kieran Jensen (former manager of The Fish House) and Emerson Brown have transformed […]

  • N3 Tapas Bar 0

    Shop 33, Marine Mirage, 74 Seaworld Drive, Main Beach, Queensland 4217

    There are many ways to choose where you want to dine: food, vibe, service, friends, location. For us, location is the most negotiable, and food the least so. If the food is ordinary (or worse), nothing else can make up. Smash the food, service and atmosphere off the charts and you’re on a winner. N3 […]

  • Tasting Plate Tours 0

    Kingscliff, NSW, 2487

    There’s no better way to find out about a region than through its food. Food is a universal experience. Moreover, it’s a highly enjoyable way to gain insights into culture, to gain knowledge, and to make new friends with similar interests.

  • Caffe Republic, Bundall 0

    Shop 1, Bronberg Plaza, 138 – 162 Slatyer Ave., Bundall, Queensland 4215

    Peter Dufty is one person who has taken up the challenge of integrating specific cuisines into the mainstream menu of Caffe Republic. A classically trained ‘master chef’ who has jumped the culinary fence from haute cuisine (Cha Cha Char and Restaurant Bespoke in Brisbane, Peppers Spicers Peak Lodge and Palazzo Versace) to healthy eating, Pete’s […]

  • Lobster Shack hits Broadbeach 0

    20 Queensland Ave., Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    Nothing breathes luxury quite like lobster and champagne. Well, maybe Monaco in spring, but we’re talking right here, right now! After sell-out pop-ups in Sydney and Melbourne, it’s the Gold Coast’s turn to welcome the Lobster Shack to the Gold Coast for three weeks only in January 2018. The popup is the brilliant idea of […]

  • Currumbin Creek Food Trail 0

    Currumbin Creek Rd., Currumbin Valley, Queensland 4223

    Settled by Europeans in the 1840s, Currumbin Valley, with its rich, fertile soil has long been associated with food production. Its original use for logging and grazing was soon joined by the establishment of banana plantations, sugar crops and dairy farms. When the Nerang to Tweed railway line was opened in 1903 with a station […]

  • Ramen Danbo 0

    Mercato on Ferry, 59 – 73 Meron St., Southport 4215

    If you thought that ramen was just a version of two-minute noodles, how wrong you are! There’s instant ramen (or two-minute-noodles) and then there’s ramen, a revered cultural dish. Hard to fathom, we know, so as we face the cultural divide, it’s best to talk to an expert. We catch up with Andrew Hosaka-Zaniewski, to […]

    4/9 Station Street, Currumbin Waters, Queensland 4223

    Local cafés are the gems of the dining scene. They are places where staff know you by name and make your coffee the way you like it, places where you can regularly catch up for a chat over coffee or a light meal, or pick up a weekend treat. Neighbourhood Coffee in Station Street could […]

  • 5B2F Bakehouse 0

    55 Brooke Ave., Southport, Queensland 4215

    We may not see it when we walk in the door, but some Gold Coast business owners come from rather surprising backgrounds, facing tough cultural challenges along the way. That’s the case for Moonsun Yoo, owner of 5B2F Bakehouse. From South Korea, Moonsun grew up in a family of bakers. He was always cooking in […]

  • Old Tom Restaurant and Bar 0

    Victoria Square, 15 Victoria Ave., Broadbeach, Queensland 4218

    NOTE: Chef Dayan Hartill-Law is no longer at Old Tom. There are three Old Toms I know. Australian Children’s Laureate Leigh Hobbs’ character, Old Tom, is a naughty, subversive cat who breaks lots of rules, his character much adored by Australian children. The older ‘Old Tom’ was just as sneaky and just as adored by […]

    Shop 1007, The Promenade, Robina Town Centre, Robina Town Centre Drive, Robina

    If you thought that poke bowls were a fad of 2017 that’s been and gone, then think again. Bowl food is here to stay, with lots of room for diversity yet to be found. Suki is a prime example; a restaurant bringing poke and sushi to us in a new way. The brainchild of Eddie […]

  • Helena’s Espresso 0

    2 New Street, Nerang, Queensland 4211

    A couple of years ago, there was a little tranquil haven overlooking the lake at Royal Pines, a cute bakery and espresso bar named after its owner, Helena Jaffar. But times change. Despite its merit, Helena’s Espresso was subsumed by redevelopment. Now, eighteen months later, Helena has found a new site for her café in […]
