Coffee, Cinemas & Kindness!

GC Word on the Street #111

We hate to break it to you, but Christmas is officially one week away! If you're anything like us and you haven't started your Christmas shopping yet, take a deep breath, ready your wallet and head out to the shops for some serious retail therapy. This week is sure to be pretty crazy, but if you have finished your Christmas shopping (and you've got a little change left over), why not head out to dinner at Burleigh's hottest new foodie space or grab the kids and relax with an evening of movies under the stars in Surfers Paradise? There's also a brand new coffee space opening in Marina Mirage soon - So don't worry, we've got your caffeine fix covered too! Let's go!

Be Kind Always Vegan Restaurant | Burleigh Heads

Veganism is quickly gaining traction on the Gold Coast, with new Vegan-friendly restaurants and menu options popping up everywhere we look, with Be Kind Always the latest restaurant to join the Vegan flock down at Burleigh Heads! Officially opening this Friday the 21st (get excited!), Be Kind Always is dedicated to serving up delicious plant-based meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner Wednesday - Sunday, dishing up everything from French Toast to Nasi Goreng with a delightful plant-based twist. Rounding off their menu with several desserts as well as crafted beer, wine and cocktails, we can easily see ourselves spending a Saturday evening here - Can you?

Cinema Under The Stars | December 20th @ Circle On Cavill

It's not Christmas without watching copious numbers of Christmas movies with the family, so Circle on Cavill is helping to make that just a little bit easier, hosting one star-filled evening of Christmas movies with their Christmas Cinema Under The Stars! Pick a patch of grass and settle down with your picnic chairs and blankets for an evening of movies, with a screening of Home Alone kicking off at 5:30pm followed by The Holiday at 7pm. Serving up free popcorn, snow cones and fairy floss before the shows start, you'll want to get down there a little early to make the most of all of the food options in the area - In fact, you might as well just take the family down to Surfers Paradise for the whole day!

New Fresh Brews | Jacks Coffee Roasters @ Marina Mirage

Did someone say coffee? Whether we like to admit it or not, we all need to start our day with a steaming cup of caffeinated goodness in order to function like normal adults - So we're pleased to announce that Marina Mirage is welcoming a brand new coffee space to help us all out! Welcoming Jacks Coffee Roasters to the bottom floor of Marina Mirage (right near Sunset Bar & Grill), the satisfying smell of fresh beans will be floating through the store all day every day, with fresh coffee offered up from 7am to 9pm to cure your caffeine needs at any hour of the day! If you're dropping in for a pre-work coffee or your 3pm caffeine hit, Jacks also has fresh sausage rolls, pies, croissants and plenty of French Pastries, so you can get your afternoon snack sorted as well!

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.
