When it comes to innovative foodstuffs, we’re all ears. Sampling at all the delicious — and finger on the pulse — cafes, eateries, restaurants on the Gold Coast is, of course, a rite of passage. However, when it comes to pushing the boundaries and trying culinary delights a little left of centre, this is where things truly get exciting.

D Point Ten are certainly no strangers to the masses who adore their doughnuts. These guys have successfully opened a slew of outlets across the Coast slinging their tasty treats and indeed show no sign of slowing their operations. So when the dessert-trusty team has an ‘outside of the box’ foodie idea, we the (lucky) public listen! Enter their newly opened coffee and pastry space in Southport — Croffee.

For those with a keen eye, you’ll notice the name is either a typo or, in fact, the amalgamation of the words croissant and coffee. Ok, so pay attention here folks, what makes Croffee so special? This is where things get a little freaky. The concept is simple: Croffee is taking a delightfully fresh and baked in-house croissant and then, with the help of a waffle iron, transforming it into a waffle — and voila, what you then have, is the first of its kind — a Croffle!

Are you a lover of croissants but also worship waffles? Then this is your chance to experience the best of both worlds. The flaky and salty sweetness of the former blended with the crunchy square texture you know and admire of the latter.

The defining aspect of these tasty little creations is the variety of toppings one can choose from.

If you’re a classic type of eater, then the Plain Croffle or Cinnamon Sugar-Coated Croffle paired with an Iced Latte should do the trick.

If you prefer things a little more indulgent, then the Fresh Cream and Strawberries Croffle or Burnt Butter Glaze and Pistachio Croffle are sure-fire ways to answer your sweet cravings.

The list goes on of both sweet and savoury varieties, and as time goes by, new toppings and special editions will be coming on the scene — even more reason for you to keep on coming back!
