It’s been a minute since we’ve sung the praises of coffee and if you know us, you’ll be aware just how much we adore the delicious, life-changing liquid (a little too much perhaps).
The point is coffee is the greatest and particularly coffee that is perfectly brewed in a sweet, new coffee spot in the heart of Surfers Paradise.
And even more particularly when that coffee is made of Social Espresso Coffee Roasters beans.
Which as you may have guessed is exactly the situation at Olive Coffee on Surfers Paradise Blvd.
The newbie was opened in late December by brother and sister team Nicola and Ryan Touliatos who decided the intimate space was the perfect place for a specialty coffee shop.
We couldn’t agree more and especially because Olive Coffee is cute as a button with a light green coffee bench and matching back wall, plants draped from the ceiling and yes, a couple of beautiful olive trees throughout.
Along one wall you’ll find shelves packed with delights like Mr Consistent’s pre-mixed cocktails, jars of edible flowers and take-home bags of Social Espresso coffee beans. All epic local things you need in your life.
Along with one of Olive Coffee’s perfectly brewed sips of course.
To eat, there are sweet treats like cupcakes, caramel slice and cookies to name a few and savoury-wise ham and cheese croissants, plain croissants (deserving of a better name really) and some bigger bites too.
The Breaky Burger has bacon and eggs with cheese and tomato relish and there’s a vego version with halloumi.
You can also tuck into a Reuben Sandwich with pastrami, sauerkraut, pickles, cheese and Dijon mustard, a range of toasties, an acai bowl and Avo Smash.
It’s all fresh and lovely and filling.
If you’re all coffee-d out you can also sip Frappes in flavours like Oreo, Nutella and Chai to name a few or Naked Berry Smoothies in Coco Mango, Coco Strawberry and Choc Banana.
All in all, it’s a stunning place with plenty of delicious goodies to sample and you should absolutely stop in next time you’re in Surfers Paradise.
