Gathering for a good cause is one of the most delightful things you can do. Being surrounded by like-minded people, learning about new ways of doing things, new businesses or listening to stories is the perfect bonding experience and one we’ve vowed to take part in more often now that we’re allowed to spend time together again.
All of those things are made even better, if they take place in a pretty space and of course, with a cup of coffee in hand. Which is the exact situation at Burleigh’s new Koast Café, a new coffee spot and event space that you can pop into as of right now.
Technically Koast Café is part of Burleigh Studio, a double-storey venue on Fremantle Street that is decked out in crisp whites and plenty of greenery.
Upstairs you’ll find a meeting-style area that can be hired for mini expos, product launches, women’s group catch ups, birthday parties, you name it. A four hour event will set you back $400 and includes one staff member to assist. You can take food in or have your event catered, so that’s a good time.
The space is also perfect for photoshoots, art exhibitions and workshops.
Downstairs, there are comfy couches, a dining table and a couple of sun-filled corners, perfect for sipping a toasty cuppa.
Which of course is a thing you can also do, as the downstairs area is home to Koast Café where you can pop in for a quick takeaway or stay to sip in peace.
Owner Sandra is also quite the clever maker, so you can take home one of her seagrass planters, a pretty new cushion or a stunning dream catcher if you’re in the market.
All the good things in the one pretty spot.
Pop in for a coffee and to check out Koast Café for your next event.
