FIND­ING THE PER­FECT CUP OF COF­FEE OR TEA - OR WHAT­EVER YOUR POI­SON - IS LIKE FIND­ING TREA­SURE AND WILL HAVE YOU GEN­ER­ALLY DRIV­ING THAT EX­TRA MILE OR MAK­ING THAT IL­LE­GAL U-TURN (WE DO NOT CON­DONE THIS AC­TIV­ITY!) WITH THE PROM­ISE OF A WARM, COM­FORT­ING CAF­FEINE HUG. We asked some Gold Coast lo­cals where their fave place is to stop, re­lax for 20 min­utes and en­joy a morn­ing cuppa? And, of course, we need to know what treat is on the plate be­side that bevvie. Here are their lo­cal se­crets - en­joy!

I love my cof­fee and Main Beach has a num­ber of very good cafes. Hard Cof­fee for ba­con/egg English muf­fin fol­lowed by a cap­puc­cino and le­mon myr­tle bis­cuit or Black Smiths for an omelette with cof­fee and the Gold Coast Bul­letin. Richard Fowler, An­nouncer, 94.1FM

Bare­foot Barista is one of our favourites. They were one of the orig­i­nal pioneers in Palmy and they are still do­ing great cof­fee and food. My or­der is a long black with their ba­con and egg sand­wich and, if I’m feel­ing naughty, one of their de­li­cious home baked muffins.

I love walk­ing the Burleigh Es­planade path with my twins in their pram, stop­ping at Nook or Nec­tar along the way for a cof­fee and muf­fin. There’s about five play­grounds along the way which means happy kids - and mum! So­phie Guidolin, Au­thor and fit­ness model

I usu­ally mix it up at dif­fer­ent venues at Soul Board­walk. Noth­ing beats the peace and calm of look­ing at Surfers Par­adise’s beau­ti­ful beach of a morn­ing. I don’t drink hot drinks so it would be ei­ther a Coca-cola (yes, bad I know, but let it go LOL!) and maybe a bagel with cream cheese or eggs bene­dict. Missy Robin­son, The Rebel Col­lec­tive
