It’s official friends, spring has arrived on the Gold Coast and with it comes sunshiny good vibes, even-more-magic-than-usual sunsets and people getting about with a little bit extra pep in their step (a poem, you’re welcome).
There’s more outside time, more socialising, more eating, drinking, beaching, all the very best things. We’re big fans.
You know what else we’re big fans of? Spring revamps. And in particular, spring the revamps of local venues we adore and can now spend more time frequenting.
We’re talking about Highline in Palm Beach, bringers of their very own variety of sunshiny good vibes, one of our favourite fitouts on the Coast, EPIC eats and as of just recently, a brand spanking new outdoor space that we’re considering moving into for summer.
Tim, Candice and the crew have knocked out the back wall to transform what was once an intimate, cosy little space into an intimate, cosy little space with a sweet new undercover outdoor area that you’re going to absolutely love.
It’s all textured white walls with hanging greenery, succulents and cactuses (cacti whatever) dotted throughout and a Fiddle Leaf Fig that is far more alive than any we’ve ever owned. Must be all the good vibes. A peach feature wall marks the outside entrance and there are plenty of tables for all your friends.
It’s a little old school beach shack and a little bit all of your design dreams come true and perfect for those balmy spring slash summer days we all migrated here for.
Not only that excitement though, the team at Highline are still serving up some of the best brunch eats around with a menu based around locally sourced, fresh produce of the highest quality.
For example the Wild Mushrooms are indeed wild and the best mushroom dish we’ve ever tasted with mushrooms (obvs), goats curd, Jerusalem artichoke and sage on toast. Don’t miss it.
We also devoured the Baked Eggs with tomato sugo beans, eggs, sausage, silverbeet and Pecorino on toast. Perfection.
Order at least three dishes with a side of perfectly brewed Marvell St coffee and you’ve got yourself a time.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, if we didn’t already live in Palmy, we’d move there just for Highline’s above and beyond goodness.
Go see for yourself.
