Coffee makes the world go round, fact. Without it we would all just stay asleep and never worry about another responsibility again. Sounds kinda nice really but it’s absolutely not feasible and so, we are very thankful for coffee and in turn, coffee shops.
Excitingly there’s a new one of those up Helensvale way and it sounds like a pretty good time. It’s called Funnybone Coffee and it can be found within the local community’s multi-million dollar The Surrounds Leisure Centre serving up beloved Blackboard Coffee and a menu filled with taste sensations.
The newbie is the latest venture of Gold Coast coffee connoisseur Damian Swan who opened Tugun fave Good Day Coffee four years ago.
The idea behind Funnybone was to create a community meeting spot where everyone feels welcome, serving up everything from breakfast on-the-go to lunch with friends or a quick coffee on the way to work.
Kitted out with handcrafted timber communal dining tables, cosy nooks and overlooking the grassy expanses of one of the best playgrounds in the area, Buckler Park, Funnybone is perfect for the whole family.
To eat you’ll find all your favourite staples made using good quality, locally sourced produce including sourdough from Pixel Bakery in Molendinar and delicious sweets from Bes Kitchen.
There’s a delicious range of toasties, breakfast burritos and fresh pastries plus homemade cookies in changing flavours.
If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of visiting Helensvale’s impressive The Surrounds Leisure Centre, be warned that you’re in for a good time. There you’ll find a suite of premium amenities including a lap pool, private multi-purpose room, a fully equipped gymnasium, and change facilities plus plenty of stunning open green spaces.
Head up to check it out and grab yourself some goodies from Funnybone Coffee while you’re at it.
Guaranteed good times await.
