In the words of the honourable Ron Swanson: Why would anyone eat anything but breakfast food? And after you see Surfers Paradise in the AM, why would you eat arguably the best meal of the day anywhere else?
At Metropolist, we have faith in our beloved Surfers when it comes to breakfast, so read up on our pick of Surfers Paradise's best breakfasts to see what you've been missing out on!
Paradox Coffee Roasters, Surfers Paradise
Paradox serves up some of the freshest, richest coffee on the entire Gold Coast, sourced ethically and from some of the most exotic locations in the world, in addition to serving up hearty, seasonal brekkies made with locally sourced ingredients. Still relatively new in Surfers and located inside the unique 4217 building, you will feel calm, peaceful, and cultured inside Paradox. Have a coffee and a bagel and see if you can help us figure out the Paradox.
Bazaar QT, Surfers Paradise
Tackling the buffet breakfast with a sophisticated and unique twist, spectacular is the only word that does Bazaar's buffet any justice. Spectacular range, from Fruit Loops to fresh tomato juice to an antipasto selection to your favourite eggs cooked to order. Spectacularly presented and laid out with homely yet refined design touches. Spectacular service with staff welcoming guests and offering any help they possibly can. And last and arguably most important, spectacular taste. Despite the huge range, flavour and quality is definitely not sacrificed. Be warned though, a Bazaar buffet will ruin every other buffet for life.
Elston, Surfers Paradise
With a stunningly fashionable, rustic interior facing direct beachfront, Elston allows you to enjoy traditional bacon and eggs executed to perfection, along with an assortment of new-world Gold Coast menu items containing words such as 'smashed avo', 'bircher museli', and 'nutella pancakes'. And we know if we didn't have you at bacon we had you at bircher!
Surfers Sandbar, Surfers Paradise
If you want a classic, no nonsense breakfast buffet where you can load up your plate with all your brekkie faves, sit down, demolish said plate, and then get up for five or six more plates - get down to Surfers Sandbar. With those stunning views of the sun hitting the sand and the joggers you can live vicariously through, you'
Bumbles Cafe, Surfers Paradise
You know from the name this place is going to be straight-up adorable, and it totally is. The charming house-turned-cafe is honestly so gorgeous you will audibly gasp when you first walk in, the same way you would if you saw Beyonce in real life. Despite its obvious beauty, Bumbles is homely and warm, serving up a menu that makes the simplest thing unbelievably tasty. If you're feeling daring, you can have what we at Metropolist call a backwards day, where you eat dessert for breakfast and work your way back until you're having breakfast for dessert. In this case, chocolate cheesecake for brekkie is a safe bet.
