We are people who are quite passionate about several things in life but at the very top of that list is good coffee, mouthwatering eats and life-changing homewares (probably in that order honestly).
Which is why it brings us great pleasure to report on the latest Gold Coast happening, this weeks’ opening of Next Door Espresso slash St Barts homewares and interior design showroom in Burleigh Heads.
If there is a dream-come-true combination on the Coast, it is this one friends because you can both peruse the absolutely mind-blowing art, furniture and general homewares goodness the team at St Barts are famous for curating, then sit yourself down for one of the best coffees around while also sampling fresh, delicious eats and congratulating yourself on a day well spent.
Found on Junction Rd in Burleigh, the new space opened on Monday September 16th and if you’ve ever visited Next Door Espresso’s Tweed Heads venue, you’ll know you’re in for a treat.
The eatery section of the space is surrounded by white, Bessel block walls and decked out with timber tables, rattan lounge chairs, a beautiful concrete coffee bar and dotted with greenery, making it the perfect post-shopping relaxation zone.
On the menu you’ll find brunch goodies along the lines of Spiced Bircher, the prettiest of Acai bowls, Avo Toast, a Field of Greens bowl filled with yes, greens but also quinoa, avocado, lemon, seeds and feta (so yummy) and toasties (love you).
The coffee is organic by Federal brewers Moonshine who are really very good at what they do. One of the best cuppas around.
There’s also a seven-spice Chai you should definitely taste, cold-pressed juices and organic Mayde Tea (local too).
Now let’s talk homewares because St Barts have created something very special that you’ve no doubt experienced at their flagship store at The Brickworks. The new Burleigh space is a double storey masterpiece filled with luxury homewares, furniture, fashion and artworks. All of which will have you wandering around in wide-eyed awe.
Upstairs, St Barts sister brand FINEPRINT co are showcasing limited edition prints alongside art by local creatives and we would like one of everything for our homes please.
It’s the perfect place to go should you need to fill your home with stunning pieces that last a lifetime (which you obviously do) or pick out the prettiest of gifts for a friend.
Speaking of perfect, how good is this collaboration between Next Door Espresso and St Barts, we see lots of both in our futures friends.
Pop in and show them some love, prepare to stay awhile.
