Café Commune – Burleigh Heads

Situated in a mundane and rather unassuming location right next to the Gold Coast Highway sits this funky little gem. With its vintage and beach-style interior, focus on organic food, roasted coffee beans by Campos (which we already know and love from Brisbane) and its friendly service, it’s the perfect hang-out to kick back and unwind. Oh, yes, and the coffee was as smooth and full-bodied as it gets.

Quest Coffee Roasters – Burleigh Heads

Great little coffee shop and roaster on James Street in Burleigh Heads. They use organic beans and create beautifully balanced coffees. Their quest for a real good coffee made from high-quality beans has certainly paid off.  When I called in, it looked like this place was popular amongst tourists and locals alike. They also sell coffee-making accessories and scrumptious pastries. Good place to hang out at for a little break.

OSLO Coffee Roasters

We were spending a few days in New York and stayed at a place on the Upper East Side. The USA aren’t especially renowned for good coffee, however this place was a real find. Tucked away in a quiet side street (at 422 E 75th St to be precise), this place quickly became our regular morning stop before we started our discovery tours of the city. It was a lucky coincidence that our friendly barista was a young lady from Brisbane who exactly understood what we were after when we ordered a flat white. Beautiful coffee and a real recommendation!
