SOCIAL BREW

Talk about jungle fever! I fell in love with this cafe the second I laid eyes on it. It somewhat resembles that of a greenhouse with its multiple hanging plants – but you can never have to many plants, right?! The use of this small space has been very creatively designed with the ordering station on one side of a stone brick wall and the dining on the other. This minimises the work noise for optimum catch up gossip time with your pals! Everything about this cafe screams organic. There is a wide range of raw treats in the cold cabinet to choose from along with gluten-free lunch options also. Hot drinks and brekky bowls are all served in amazing hand made terracotta bowls and mugs.. which almost makes want to immediately hit a pottery class and make a set for your own home!

The menu has a large variety of dishes and are all relatively guilt free (phew)! With gluten free, vegetarian and raw options this menu caters for everyone. I was told to try one of their ‘bowls’ so I opted for the Acai Bowl. It certainly did not disappoint! Bursting with flavour and being the perfect consistency my acai in all its fruity glory was fresh and delicious! Whats brunch without a coffee?! It was a typical summers day on the Gold Coast so I decided to have an iced coffee. To my surprise it came out like nothing I’ve ever seen before! Heard of deconstructed coffee? This was something that I was new too, so as you can imagine I was super excited to put together my coffee creation! There was a large beaker filled with steamed frothy milk and two smaller bottles – one with liquid sweetener and the other filled with extra espresso. In the main drinking glass it had two frozen espresso ice-cubes, made in house. Add your hot milk and watch the magic happen!

This certainly is one cafe that I continuously come back to – the food, the atmosphere, the coffee…They’ve got it all going on! Make sure you give the deconstructed iced coffee a go!
