For the owners of Rockleigh Cafe in Coolangatta, simple, farmhouse dining has always been a way of life, and they've finally decided to share with the rest of us. Named after the family farm, Rockleigh brings the best of good, home cooking to the coast, with a new spring menu that's sure to have you driving down to try it. They've got the usual favourite Avo on Sourdough, but the real fan fave is their Mixed Confit Mushrooms with Cucumber, Cherry Tomatoes and Goats Cheese - Yes please!


Dedicated to providing the freshest, healthiest and most wholesome food on the Coast, Blendlove's new menu is a must-try for anyone leaning towards living a healthier lifestyle. The latest breakfast favourites are their new Summer Pancakes and French Toast (which looks too good to eat!), but if you're after something savory you can always sink your teeth into Smashed Avo with Feta or their ultimate Blendlove Big Brekky. But don't worry, if you wake up too late for breakfast there's always lunch options too - And it's all Gluten, Dairy-Free and Vegan!

Famous for their lovingly brewed beans (this season it's Colombian, Brazilian and Ethiopian flavours!), Blackboard Coffee in Varsity Lakes is all about making sure you start the day the right way - With a good meal and an incredible coffee!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
