Creek View or Farm View We encourage all that wander through to take a break from it all with a tea and cake by the farm or listen to the gentle trickle of Currumbin Creek-side. Below is a list of our friends and suppliers that have crafted beautiful pastries, cakes and ice-creams made with quality ingredients for all foragers to enjoy.
If you are a Currumbin local, you would know that Nobee's Viennoiserie Lab (in Currumbin Waters) is synonymous with true artisan pastries. Even the toughest of almond croissant critiques have given his work a loving tick of approval. Tom and Hana and their daughter Emmy are the beautiful family behind Gold Coast's famous MRKT cakes. Their smiles in this picture are a pretty accurate depiction of who they are in the flesh. MRKT's dairy and gluten free treats are made with the highest quality ingredients and a hefty amount of OCD mean that you get a perfectly shaped and consistently beautiful treat. Frozen Sunshine is a beautiful family-run business originating on the Sunshine Coast. We first had the pleasure of tasting a Frozen Sunshine's chocolate ice-cream at the Eumundi markets in 2014 and have never forgotten it. You will be delighted with these perfectly crafted dairy free and seasonal ice blocks. Jeremy and his Flat Earth Kombucha is a well-known farmer's market staple around these parts and when you taste the crisp refreshing flavour combinations you will understand why. But most of all, we just really like Jeremy. He is one of the most lovely, authentic people we have come to deal with and it's this authenticity and care that is also reflected in his product range. Simon and Rachelle, Rachelle and Simon; are a bit of a household name in Currumbin. With a long history in the nutrition, herbs, fermentation and healing space, any product they produce is plain and simply remarkable. Spectrum is a boutique honey based (juno), ginger flavoured kombucha that is oh-so refreshing. The fermentation balance they are able to achieve is next to perfect with little-to-no vinegar aftertaste and a beautiful bodied flavour. We have been trying to learn their secret recipe for a long time with very little success. Sometimes we are all just better off leaving certain things to the artisans.
Want an outsanding barrister coffee? Head out of the the Valley to these epic locals! When trying to deconstruct reasons why some coffees are great and some aren't; it really comes down to patience and a lot of OCD. That's why we think Jerry at Portside Coffee makes some of the best coffee in town. While Jerry gives off a relaxed and carefree demeanour, when you watch him with his craft; his approach is anything but. His process is as systematic and regimented as Novak Djokovic's tennis serve. Tip - he is right next door to Nobee's Viennoiserie Lab in Currumbin Waters. Picture the morning sun peaking through repurposed farm doors into a wide open space; the smell of coffee with a slight white sage infusion and the vibration of a good tune - this is Dust Temple to us. Creatives, John and Isla have boldly shaped a coffee and art space that is so totally unimaginable. What was once a run-down shed is now revived into an architecturally-designed open-space, adorned with works from local artists. This is a watering hole that allows for full immersion into a world of great coffee, music, and freedom of exploration. A lot of sweat has gone into creating this space and we can't help but thank John and Isla for sharing their work for a simple trade of the price of a cup of coffee. Tip - Dust Temple also serve Nobee's Viennoiserie Lab pastries. Pasture & Co's open plan space and food displays oozes wellness. Dani and her team have been able to create a welcoming, on-trend space that serves some of the most amazingly flavoured meals you will taste on this end of the Coast. It is because of the cleverly balanced flavours and freshness that you are able to walk away from your meal feeling satiated and nourished; rather than needing a glass of water and a nap! Iron & Resin Garage is the empitome of cafe-racer-cool. With a hearty range of breakfast and lunch options as well as a good cup of coffee, a scheduled stop-off will be rewarded. Top
