Let’s face it, more often than not we choose where to brunch based on how Insta-worthy a space is, how beautifully the food is plated and whether or not we can get THE shot.
We’ve rounded up some of the best places to brunch on the Gold Coast based on the most beautiful decor and the drool-worthiness of dishes because #foodporn is our favourite thing.
Social Brew Burleigh
You’re bound to feel like you’re in Jumanji when you come for brunch here. Hidden away in the heart of Burleigh, this oasis is dripping pot plants from the ceiling, with more leafy wallpapers than your local plant nursery and complimented by white honeycomb tiled tables – begging for you to take a picture with it all. Order the Super Green Quinoa Bowl.
