There’s nothing quite like that perfectly proportioned package that fits snuggly in your hand.
Yep, we’re talking breakfast rolls and we’ve sourced some of the Gold Coast’s tastiest to kick start your day.
Ground Lamb Sandwich | Espresso Moto
Perched on the Gold Coast Highway in Palm Beach, Espresso Moto’s super chilled vibe is contagious. Part cafe, part motorbike workshop, the menu is loaded with flavour. Like the Ground Lamb Sanga smothered with red wine and rosemary onion jam, cheese, and aioli. You’re welcome.
Bacon And Egg Roll | Barefoot Barista
It’s easy to see why locals prefer to start their day with a Barefoot Barista coffee. Slap one of their infamous bacon and egg rolls in the other hand and your morning is set. Chomp your chops into crispy bacon, two fried eggs, spinach with “kaioli”, and Barefoot’s wife-made chutney, all on a toasted milk bun—hands down one of the best breakfasts on the Gold Coast.
The Club | NYC Bagel Deli
Perfect for brekkie on the run, NYC Bagel Deli at The Kitchens is a hole-y treat! With bagels hand-rolled, boiled and baked fresh in store every day, The Club has fast become a local’s fave. Prepare yourself for mouthfuls of smoked chicken breast, crispy bacon, Swiss cheese, fresh tomato, rocket, and aioli, sitting pretty between two beautiful buns.
Bacon And Egg Roll | Bam Bam Bakehouse
Tucked beneath the trees in a Mermaid Beach park, Bam Bam’s bakery-style menu is, well, explosive, and the bacon and egg roll is no exception. Hickory smoked eye bacon, two eggs, aged cheddar, rocket, and house brown sauce on a wood-fired semi-sourdough roll. Feeling adventurous? Try the new karaage chicken on a croissant. Mind = blown.
Brekkie Bao | Double Barrel Kitchen
Mermaid Waters’ Double Barrel Kitchen is an urban oasis created by locals for locals and boy have they got peeps bowing down for Brekkie Baos. Three steamed, soft Chinese bao buns each come loaded with free-range bacon, a tiny quail egg, and relish—a burst of flavour in every bite.
Double Bacon Egg Roll | Blackboard Coffee
Boasting a killer new fit-out, high ceilings and serving what’s arguably the Coast’s best tasting coffee, Blackboard in Varsity is a must for die-hard brekkie fans. Just one bite and you’ll fall in love with their double bacon roll with a fried egg and brown sauce. Happy days!
Alfred’s Signature Burrito | Alfred’s Diner
Grab a posi at one of Alfred Diner’s outdoor benches and strap yourself in for a taste sensation. Alfred’s signature burrito comes choc-a-bloc with egg, bacon, diced tomatoes, spinach, cheese, tomato relish, and aioli. Teamed with Alfred’s cold brew and you’ve got yourself the perfect hangover cure.
B + E Roll | Daark Espresso
Chirn Park’s finest, Daark Espresso is being hailed as the place to find some of the best breakfasts on the Gold Coast. Sink your teeth into their tasty B + E Roll with shortcut bacon, fried egg, cheddar, and a to-die-for tomato relish, all on a toasted milk bun. We hear the baristas are pretty easy on the eye, too.
The Breakky Wrap | 52 Espresso
Early-birds rejoice! 52 Espresso is open from the crack of dawn, so head on down to Nobby Beach and wrap your laughing gear around The Breakky Wrap. Grilled bacon, cheesy scrambled eggs, rocket, ginger tomato relish, and avo wrapped in a soft tortilla. We can almost taste it now.
Smokey Pink bagel | Randy Wallhole
Coffee, bagels, and good times—that’s Randy Wallhole. Another local favourite, this retro Southport cafe serves simple and delicious breakfast eats including the Smokey Pink Bagel. Think: smoked salmon, double cream cheese, capers, Spanish onion, dill, and a lemon wedge. Come for the food, stay for a game of Connect Four.
Still hangry? Here’s 30 epic cafes serving up some of the best breakfasts on the Gold Coast.
