AN­DREW WHIT­ING Elk Espresso owner

Scout Magazine - - Local Loves... -

Which sub­urb do you call home? Hard one. I per­son­ally live in Robina but I feel like Elk is my home too so Broad­beach as well.

What makes that sub­urb the best on the GC? Robina I love as there is heaps of na­ture tracks that I run with my pram. Great com­mu­nity area to raise kids! I love Broad­beach as it has great beaches plus its easy to grab an take­away elk fix while tak­ing the kids to the park with the gi­ant kids play­ground.

Fave place to stop, re­lax for 20 mins and en­joy a morn­ing cuppa? And what treat is on the plate be­side your hot bevvie? I try and sneak “my time” at home with Fil­ter cof­fee and a read be­fore the kids wake up!

You’re plan­ning a fun, lo­cal night out with your mates? Which three lo­ca­tions top your list and why? Iku in Burleigh - took me ages to get there and it was great! Great cock­tails and I loved the va­ri­ety of food. Aloha Bar - soooo much fun times to have there – Cre­ative Tiki cock­tails and the vibe is the best. Lupo - Nat­u­ral wines and food that you can taste the love in it.

Best lo­cal spot for fam­ily hangs and why? We love Robina Com­mon. Its got large open fields for the kids to play, epic play­grounds and great path­ways through na­ture to rid and scooter on.

Fave Gold Coast shop­ping des­ti­na­tion? I go weekly at the crackof dawn with the kids to the Farm­ers Mar­kets at HOTA . Its a great ex­pe­ri­ence for the kids and the pro­duce is amaz­ing!

Com­plete this sen­tence: Only a Gold Coast lo­cal knows... how spoilt we are with the beaches and hos­pi­tal­ity es­tab­lish­ments!
