The year has kicked off in a good way Gold Coasters. We’ve already been gifted a few sweet new venues and from what we’re hearing, there’s plenty more on the way.

And one that’s already here that you don’t need us to tell you is an absolute must-visit is Espresso Moto Mermaid and see, what a time to be alive.

The team who started their run in Palm Beach quite a few years ago, have opened a similarly epic space on a corner block in Markeri Street with plenty of good vibes and even better brews and eats on offer.

The space wraps around the street facing block with open windows all around, both outdoor and indoor seating, plants suspended from the ceiling and dotted throughout and of course, a neon sign in the back reading ‘Moto Nights’. Which we all know are the best kind.

Recycled timber from Burleigh Second Hand has been used to craft the windows and a vintage surfboard shapers bench has been repurposed too. It all comes together perfectly.

Now if you’ve had the pleasure of visiting the OG in Palmy, you’ll know the eats are as good as it gets. Luckily, some things don’t change and we can confirm the same for the newbie.

The Bacon & Egg Roll has (and always will be) a firm favourite, absolutely stacked with streaky Canadian bacon plus aioli and housemate tomato relish on a twisted ciabatta slipper. The goods.

There’s also the You all know me A.E.P that we LOVED. It’s got all of the avocado, edamame, and pea smash with pumpkin hummus, spinach, bullseye beets and wasabi peas on toasted sourdough. Defs taste that one.

Plus Eggs Benedict with house made hollandaise on ciabatta with a choice of bacon, smoked salmon or roasted mushrooms AND an epic Breaky Bao with streaky bacon or mushrooms with poached eggs, spinach, chilli jam and miso aioli. Both taste sensations obviously.

To sip, All Press coffee – a big, fat chocolately blend in fact and one we like very much. There’s also an array of fresh juices, smoothies (the banana is heaven), house made Chai teas and soft drinks too.

Keep an eye out for Espresso Moto Mermaids’ Seafood night featuring all your faves; fish and chips, salt and pepper calamari, school prawns and fish tacos to name a few plus of course beer on tap and a selection of wines.

Trust us, their night eats are easily as delicious as their daytime ones.

That’s a lot of good stuff from the crew.

Get down there and show them (and your belly) some love.
