SINCE 1989, THE OA­SIS HAS DE­LIV­ERED FASH­ION, HOME­WARES, EN­TER­TAIN­MENT AND SO MUCH MORE TO BROAD­BEACH LO­CALS AND TOURISTS ALIKE. BUT IT’S THEIR IM­PRES­SIVE COL­LEC­TION OF RESTAU­RANTS AND CAFES THAT HAVE HEADS TURN­ING, PRO­VID­ING MORN­ING COF­FEE RIGHT THROUGH TO FRI­DAY NIGHT DRINKS.

ELK Es­presso

For the past 6.5 years, the in­dus­trial-chic lo­cal favourite ELK had oc­cu­pied the same spot over­look­ing the Broad­beach Park soc­cer fields so, nat­u­rally, fans were a lit­tle taken aback when they heard that their beloved es­presso pit-stop would be pack­ing up and mov­ing on. But they needn’t de­spair, be­cause ELK only moved a few blocks away, set­ting up shop at Oa­sis’s lively food hub and con­tin­u­ing to serve up their raved-about Sin­gle O cof­fee and sea­son­ally-in­spired brekky and lunch com­bos (but­ter­milk fried chicken and waf­fles, any­one?). The lo­ca­tion of your next cof­fee with friends, mid-morn­ing pick-me-up or im­por­tant lunch meet­ing, sorted. And for the cus­tomer with kid­dies in tow, don’t dis­tress – ELK’S perched right on the beach­front. You can en­joy the slides, swings and climb­ing frames of Prat­ten Park be­fore or af­ter your ELK fix. Plus, the out­door din­ing area is dog friendly and a great space to sip on some lat­tes while soak­ing in the sun. Win, win… win!

Main Street Burger Bar

Born in By­ron Bay, Main Street Burger Bar has made the trek up to Broad­beach in re­cent years to keep spread­ing the good word about their ‘be­wil­der­ing burg­ers and bou­tique brews’. There’s a lot to be said for a restau­rant that finds their niche and sticks to it, so it’s no sur­prise that Main Street have be­come pretty good at the art of burger mak­ing. Slow-roasted bar­be­cue pork shoul­der, pick­led jalapenos, chipo­tle mayo and house slaw. Crispy chicken ten­ders, let­tuce, tomato and gar­lic aioli. ‘Ra­men’ glazed tofu, gar­lic mayo, bean sprouts and let­tuce and tomato. Mac­a­roni. And. Cheese. Cro­quettes… need we say more?

The Loose Moose

Af­ter a bit of grub with a side-serv­ing of soul? The Loose Moose Tap & Grill House is your go-to. It’s not of­ten that you find a spot that of­fers break­fast, lunch, din­ner, dessert, bar­be­cue and even ta­pas - and it’s even rarer to find a place that does it all per­fectly. Promis­ing dirty food made clean (and cer­tainly de­liv­er­ing) The Loose Moose’s Cana­dian-in­spired menu could have you eat­ing a quinoa and oat por­ridge for breakky, a ‘Hot Stuff’ burger or ‘Piggy Mac’ for lunch and a smor­gas­bord of jalapeno pop­pers, drunken prawns and lamb ribs for din­ner – all washed down with one of their fa­mous four-glass beer pad­dles or a Salted Pop Caramel Freak­shake. Or, you can ac­com­pany their win­ter warm­ers with one of their 160 whiskeys col­lected from all over the world. And if you’re feel­ing ex­tra naughty, opt for a Snick­ers Mess from the late-night menu – trust us. The Loose Moose is also home to a must see Sun­day Ses­sion, with live mu­sic, from 2-7pm.
