Barchino gets rave reviews, and their breakfast is a locals’ favourite. Or try Canvas, a community art space and espresso bar, for a more artisan vibe – you can even SMS your coffee order to go. The Yard is open from breakfast through to dinner, with everything in between and a sweet little play spot out the back if you have kids in tow.
For a complete change of scene, grab your granny trolley and head to the Gold Coast Organic Farmer’s Market just next door at Miami State High School each Sunday from 6am. Stock up on farm-fresh goodies to start the week right.
