Sometimes there’s nothing better to see than an iconic and revered Gold Coast venue go from strength to strength. Mind you, we’re all for change and moving things forward in our vibrant city, yet for the last 31 years, Madison Café & Patisserie at The Oasis Shopping Centre in Broadbeach has had locals and tourists flocking for their so-pretty-you-can’t-walk-past-them cakes.
Shall we also remind you of their famous super-sized Club Sandwich, fresh salads, Thai Chicken Curry (special shout out for this one), and their traditional Italian pizzas? There is something for everyone.
After having the same menu now for over two decades, the devoted team announce with much excitement and zest they have decided to launch a rousing Friday and Saturday ‘After Dark’ menu with the addition of share platters!
If you aren’t familiar, Madison’s Café & Patisserie is the perfect place to pick your perch and relax, whether it be inside The Oasis, the main dining area or alfresco, so you can people watch to your heart’s delight down the Broadbeacl Mall. Plus, the team very generously open every day from 5am to 9pm except for Christmas Day – now that’s dedication.
The new evening menu, which starts from 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays, will feature an array of Share Platters, including a Warm Hummus Dip, Buffalo Wings, Soy-Sesame Squid, Arancini Balls and Pulled Pork Nachos. All of your usual tasty suspects – and we are here for it.
Ok enough holding out on you, here is the part we feel you’ve been really waiting for. Lovers of all things sweet are going to revel in the desserts section on the new ‘After Dark’ menu and, in particular, their assortment (yes that’s right) of Brownie Sundaes. You’re spoilt with a choice of Hokey Pokey Crunch, Raspberry Delight, The Nutty One, Choc Mint Delight and Banana Choc Fudge. Ummm we don’t think we can prepare ourselves more for this.
Fancy a S’mores Pizza with lashings of Nutella and Marshmallows? Madison’s Café & Patisserie now have one and you’re welcome!
There’s also a Loaded Cheesecake and Mud Cake Sensation featuring in the new menu.
Indulgence Platters feature a pot of rich chocolate ganache with an assortment of strawberries, pretzels, marshmallows, cheesecake chunks, waffles and caramel mud cake chunks. Sign. Us. Up. — We think this is dessert decadence!
You’ll earn brownie points (or just eat some) for sure!
