If there is one thing we know, it is that coffee is a magical, life-saving elixir and without it, who knows where we’d all be while navigating this new world we now live in. On that note, we are very happy to bring you the news that a brand new coffee house opened recently in Palm Beach and it’s one you’re going to want to pop into at the soonest available opportunity.
It’s called Watson Bloom and it can be found within the Sable Palm Beach building on the Gold Coast Highway. Owned by two locals who know a thing or two about specialty brews, the newbie is intimate and inviting and quite a delight honestly.
Inside you’ll find a bench that runs the length of the space upon which the magic happens, greenery drips from every corner and on one wall is an array of take home goodies like Raw treats, Prana Chai and Naked bars. It’s all whites and greys and the epitome of cool, but not too cool (their slogan, quite appropriately).
Coffee-wise Alex Begley and Stephen Harris use a variety of blends depending on your preference and whether you’re into milk coffee, cold brew or a filter brew, they’ve got you covered.
You can also opt for a sticky Prana Chai tea, Craave Chai latte, Hot Chocolate or a fresh, delicious smoothie and you won’t be paying extra for alternative milks. Of which there is any kind you need – Coco Quench, Almond, Oat, Soy, Nut Mylk and the dairy version is organic and really very delicious.
To eat, there’s an array of plant-based treats including raw goodies and banana bread made in-house plus pastries consisting of the yummiest fillings including broccoli and sweet potato and pear and custard. YUM. All of those can be taken away but when the time comes, there will be seating inside and in the little patio area at the front.
Almost forgot the most important thing, there are DOUGHNUTS too.
The idea behind Watson Bloom is to keep it simple and focus on the community and we are absolutely all about that.
Pop in to show them some love next time you’re in need of an exceptional brew and fill up your cup in more ways than one.
