The Gold Coast's Best Boozy Brunches
Morning tipples and tasty treats? Yes please.
Somewhere in between breakfast and lunch falls the opportunity to indulge in drool-worthy eats and sometimes even allows you to dabble in some mid-morning booze. It’s a pretty sweet deal. But where exactly on the Gold Coast can one find the best boozy brunches? That’s where we come in. From bottomless mimosas to luxurious buffets, there’s something to suit everyone, even if cash is on the tighter side.
BAZAAR | SURFERS PARADISE
Merging two of the best meals of the day, Bazaar at QT is offering potentially the most delectable brunch on the coast. Upon arrival, you’ll be met with a complimentary Chandon Rosé, which will set the vibe for the hours to come. Think DIY breakfast bowls, a custom juice bar, a crepe station and what could arguably be the best feature of this brunch, a giant chocolate fountain. Pair your plates of food (plural) with their Belvedere espresso martinis or their famous QT bloody mary and you’ve got brunch at its finest. You can grab this deal every Sunday from 11:30 for just $59 a head. Happy brunching.
THE ISLAND | SURFERS PARADISE
There’s no better way to make the most of the Gold Coast’s famously good weather than heading on up to The Island’s rooftop for their Grazy Days all inclusive brunch. For just $69 per person you’ll be served a cheese grazing platter, salt and pepper squid and lamb cutlets, and, of course, unlimited booze. You can choose from their house wines, their very own range of Rooftop Spritz and soft drinks and juices. The Island offers this deal every Saturday and Sunday and kids eat free! Sounds pretty damn good to me.
ELK ESPRESSO | BROADBEACH
These guys haven taken brunch to the next level and are bringing you the ultimate deal. Every day from 10am you can snag a meal and bottomless mimosas for just $39 per person – bargain! To make it even more irresistible, Elk Espresso offer three different mimosa flavours – the trusty classic, grapefruit or strawberry and lime *drool*. So gather the gang and head to Elk, you wont regret it.
THE STAR | BROADBEACH
The Star Casino is no stranger to a good time, so why not let the good times roll into their Champagne Weekend? From $89 per person you can guzzle champas and indulge in a carefully selected shared menu. Starting with Sydney rock oysters and finishing with their strawberry shortcake, The Star has you sorted from starters all the way through to dessert. Feeling boujee? You can splash out and opt for the 2006 Dom Pérignon paired with you meal for $369 a head, the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion.
LITTLE MERMAID | MERMAID BEACH
Offering an extensive brunch AND cocktail list, Little Mermaid is a must visit if you’re after a boozy brunch with limitless options. Little Mermaid boasts a relaxed atmosphere with a menu to match, think grazing boards, white chocolate loaded banana bread and even truffled corn and feta fritters. Pair these insta-worthy meals with their bottomless mimosa option and a good time is guaranteed.
THE TROPIC | BURLEIGH HEADS
Burleigh Pavilion’s The Tropic offers bottomless brunch every Saturday, and with one of the most iconic views on the coast, what’s not to like? Spoil yourself with fresh oysters, their truffle and Italian sausage toasties and unlimited Chandon, sounds pretty amazing, right? If Burleigh Pav wasn’t already one of your favourite venues, I’m sure it will be now.
You are truly spoilt for choice when it comes to boozy brunches on the coast, there are so many goodies to choose from. This list will help narrow down the search when you’re wanting to fill the brunch-shaped hole in your heart.
About the Author
I love all things fashion, food and travel. A holiday filled with drool-worthy food and Carrie Bradshaw-inspired fashion and I’m weak at the knees. Born in Brisbane and raised on the NSW far north coast, my passions and personal flair are influenced by a term I like to call “coastal-chic”. I’m a sucker for a rom-com (I don’t even want to think about how many times I’ve watched The Devil Wears Prada), but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
