There are few dishes which 99.9% of the population agree are always worthy of ordering Every.Single.Time we go out for breakfast / brunch / lunch (heck, we’d order it at dinner if we could) but a Smashed Avo definitely tops the list. Its taste and abundance of nutrients make it a long-standing fave with people of all ages (not just Millenials – shock horror)… And guess what?! Its hero ingredient even has its own day of acknowledgment; World Avocado Day!

In honour of World Avocado Day which just happens to be Sunday 31st July, here is a list of places on the GC where you’re guaranteed a mouthwateringly yum smashed avo fix. ‘Hass’ Queen!!!

Daark Espresso
If you live in the central or northern ‘burbs, it’s safe to say you’ve dined here. A lot. You’ve also no doubt ordered the Smashed Avocado and Persian Fetta on seeded sourdough with poached eggs, toasted almonds, mint, sesame seeds, pepitas with lemon-infused olive oil. An institution among professional brunches, it’s worth the line-up. Oh and the coffee…we dare you to try and find better.

Where: 20 Hibiscus Haven, Burleigh Heads

Substance Espresso
If we’re north-side at brekky or brunch o-clock, you betcha bottom dollar you’ll find us smashing a Smashed Avo on sourdough with poached eggs, semi dried tomatoes, whipped feta, macadamia dukkha and sticky balsamic at the almighty Substance Espresso. The food, coffee, vibe and cracking service here is eternally faultless, and why not grab a sneaky carafe of mimosa to wash it down #DontMindIfIDo!
