The Surfers Paradise Beach Cafe

Cafe, Seafood

Right at the very heart of Surfers Paradise lies the aptly named Surfers Paradise Beach Cafe, offering stunning views of the ocean and a wide choice of cuisine through breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their breakfast menu starts bright and early at 6.30am each day, featuring illustrious items like the bestselling eggs benedict.

Surfers Sandbar

Restaurant, Bar, Cafe, Australian

Surfers Sandbar‘s claim to fame is its prime location, directly overlooking Surfers Paradise Beach from its massive alfresco seating area. Situated in the throng of Queensland’s tourism hub, it’s especially refreshing that this restaurant/bar/cafe combo still offers very reasonably priced meals from the bistro style kitchen and tasty cocktails from the bar.

ESPL. Coffee Brewers

ESPL. Coffee Brewers

Along the beach-lined esplanade of Surfers Paradise you’ll find ESPL. Coffee Brewers, a micro-café fixing up cups of Blackboard Coffee with a modest line of pastries, sandwiches and cakes. The micro size of the venue makes for an amiable and relaxed atmosphere, perfect for watching the waves roll in. Though it’s surrounded by brash and often trashy oceanfront bars and cafés, ESPL. offers a welcome contrast by working with a minimalist aesthetic and a no-nonsense approach to quality produce.

Bumbles Café

Cafe, Australian, Vegetarian

In the heart of Budds Beach, a quick five minutes’ walk from the main Surfers Paradise strip, is Bumbles Café, a café and caterer with an unbeatable menu of comforting breakfast food. Bumbles occupies many roles for Surfers Paradise locals; for some it’s practically an extension of their own homes, for others a weekend hangout spot, or an easygoing venue for catching up with friends over brunch. All breakfasts are served with delicious panya sourdough breads, Australian butter, grange jams from Benowa, and Bumbles’ own honey.

Cafe Alfons

Cafe, Australian, Vegetarian

Open for breakfast and lunch seven days a week from 7am, Cafe Alfons is a high-profile al fresco café situated on the Eastern corner of the Chevron Island Village strip, just across the bridge from Surfers Paradise. Alfons is fully licensed and boasts a comprehensive menu, balancing traditional breakfast and lunch favorites with a selection of signature dishes.

Cafe 50

Cafe, Australian

Cafe 50 on Cavill Avenue is a one stop shop for morning rushers and office lunchers. The no-frills seating and blackboard listing make the coffees the only things needed at this functional and humble café. Among the goodies available to brunchers and early risers are the Portuguese egg custard tarts; smashed pea, labneh and crispy bacon on rustic Italian bread; the granola breakfast sundae; and the greens and super seed salad with poached eggs.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
