CAFE SURF­ING

GLUTEN, DAIRY AND RE­FINED SUGAR MAY BE OFF THIS MENU, BUT FLAVOUR IS A FIX­TURE

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Gold Coast Eye - - EYE EAT - WORDS: DENISE RAWARD

There’s not a trace of gluten or re­fined cane sugar to be found at this healthy hotspot, which makes nearly every­thing from scratch us­ing as much lo­cal and or­ganic pro­duce as it can get its hands on. A break­fast favourite is the buck­wheat pan­cakes with caramelised maple banana, raw chan­tilly cashew cream, raw blue­berry chia jam and pure maple syrup with an op­tional side of ve­gan nut­meg and vanilla-bean ice cream. If savoury is more your thing, try the house­made sorghum wrap filled with free-range eggs, ni­trate-free smoky ba­con, charred pump­kin, grilled onion, av­o­cado, or­ganic spinach and home­made farm­house chutney. The cafe’s new menu is also com­pletely dairyfree (al­though there is or­ganic cow’s milk for cof­fee/tea choices).

The house blend comes from Ground Con­trol Tweed Heads. It brews rich and smooth with a choice of milks in­clud­ing the house­made hemp or al­mond milks.

The free-range dippy eggs is $13 while the deluxe break­fast wrap is $22. A stan­dard cof­fee is $5.

In­side of­fers a cosy, rus­tic vibe but on a sunny day, ven­ture to the hid­den back­yard to ad­mire the gar­den that thrives on the cafe’s com­posted or­ganic mat­ter.
