Hello friends, we’ve ventured to the northern Gold Coast to bring you news of a sweet little newbie we absolutely think you should visit at the earliest available opportunity.
It’s called Café Sofi and it can be found in Helensvale within brand new ($4 million) leisure centre, The Surrounds.
Café Sofi is now the official meeting space within the stunning new precinct, set within lush gardens and with views across the grassy surrounds.
Owners and husband and wife duo Tony and Sophie Whitely have created a lovely little family-friendly environment bringing a welcoming vibe you may have come across at View Café Hinze Dam, the venue they’ve owned and operated for the past five years.
The newbie will offer all of your breakfast and lunch favourites with a few unique flavours thrown in for good measure.
For breakfast we’re quite partial to the Purple Bagel (obviously) with roasted beetroot hommus, a poached free range egg, fried haloumi, field mushrooms, pistachio dukkah and rocket on a lightly toasted bagel. YUM.
At lunchtime we would like to sample the Chicken and Bacon Burger and maybe the Homemade thin crust pizza please.
The menu also includes staples like fresh organic sourdough toast, free-range eggs, homemade hollandaise sauce, and tangy tomato relish and features everything from egg and bacon rolls to a post-workout protein hit.
A fully stocked cabinet display is filled with fresh salad concoctions, wholesome breakfast cups, and colourful wraps provide a healthy, delicious meal on the go.
The kiddies will be happy too with an extensive menu just for them including scoop ice cream and lollies to be inhaled while playing at the adjacent park.
Obviously having the park close by means you can kick back and relax (read: consume copious amounts of coffee) for a little while longer while the little ones are entertained.
Sounds like heaven to us and we don’t even have kids.
Pop in and try it for yourself.
LOCATION: 6 Emerald Drive, Helensvale
