It comes in the form of Jeffersons, a fun little space underneath the Palm Beach Surf Club on, you guessed it, Jeffersons Lane and right beside the beach for the sole purpose of encouraging you to live your very best Gold Coast life. With bulk coffee.
It’s all whites and natural wood with greenery throughout and a sign reading “your day starts here” across the back wall and it does now Jeffersons, you are right good sir.
It is indeed the work of the Palmy Surf Club but don’t be thinking all those “surf club coffees suck” thoughts you’re about to entertain. No friends, that is not the case here.
The gang at Jeffersons are using the beans of local legends Social Espresso and, as you no doubt know, those make up a smooth, tasty blend and some of the very best cuppas around.
Not to mention the yummy baked goods you should also stock up on should you find yourself beachside and starving on a sweet Sunday morning. Which we all certainly do one way or another.
There are custard and Nutella filled donut balls plus muffins fresh from Fuel Bakehouse in Currumbin, not to mention banana bread (love you) with a housemade cinnamon butter that you will return for time and time again.
There are toasties of the ham, cheese and tomato variety and bliss balls for a bit of protein after an early morning surf or some such thing.
You may also indulge in cold pressed juices and Kombucha to accompany your coffee if having more than one delicious beverage on the go is your idea of a fun time (YEP).
All of the takeaway packaging within Jeffersons is recyclable including, yes, the coffee cups BUT if you bring your keep cup along, you’ll nab yourself a 50 cent discount on your coffee (that’s a lot y’all).
There are rugs in a basket by the counter so we suggest grabbing one of those, plus a few select goodies and setting up a little picnic-style situation overlooking the pretty Palmy ocean.
