There’s something ever so wholesome about getting goods delivered straight to your front door. Maybe it’s the thought of skipping traffic on the Gold Coast Highway, or maybe it’s just because you’re stuck in lockdown. Whatever it is, we love a good home delivery.
And to add to the ever-growing list of epic things you can get delivered straight to your front door, we bring you all the dessert spots worth throwing your cash at only to have them miraculously turn up at your doorstep. Here are 10 of the best spots to get a dessert delivery or takeaway from on the Gold Coast.
Did you know you can order Paddock’s 1KG cookie online for pick up? Well, you can, along with their gooey cookies, Nutella bots and a bunch of other mouthwatering delicacies you can check out here. Obviously you need to give them plenty of notice in advance (24 hours), but rest assured that it’ll be totally worth it when you dig into any of these bad boys.
The Milkman’s Cookies
The Milkman’s Cookies is a sweet-as-can-be small business that first started out as two Gold Coast locals with a desire to join the market community and quickly turned into a mission to create the best cookies in town. Each of the indulgent creations is lovingly baked fresh daily, then shipped express to your doorstep. With a huge range including specialities like the OG milkman, salted caramel, Nutella choc and banana coco choc, how can you say no, really?
Tarte Bakery & Cafe
They’ve barely been around for a year but Tarte Bakery is already an iconic staple in Burleigh and you’ll be pleased to know that they take online orders, available for pick up only. So whether you’re after a rhubarb and custard tart, a luscious cruller or a cookie cup (why not all three?), you can order them all ahead of time right here.
Three Jacks Baking
Hit up Three Jacks Baking for all your brownie, gourmet filled cookie, and cupcake needs. Plus one look at their Nutella-filled chocolate cookie and you’ll fall right in dessert love. Best of all, they offer free delivery on all their orders, so make sure to DM them ASAP.
Bam Bam Bakehouse
It would be criminal to write a Gold Coast dessert round-up and not include the stunningly talented crew at Bam Bam Bakehouse. One browse through their online order menu and you’ll find yourself wiping drool off your keyboard. You can order any of their pastries for in-store pickup, and any of their cakes as well (provided you give them 48 hours’ notice)—we’ll take one of everything, thanks.
Sugar Gathered specialises in all things doughnut, which is pretty much the best thing to specialise in. Think adorable themed boxes like the bloke box with beers and doughnuts (name a better combo?), doughnut bouquets and even doughnut cakes that are almost too pretty to eat. No matter how bad you’ve been, no one can stay mad at you for long if they receive a Sugar Gathered delivery.
Custard Canteen champions the iconic Portuguese custard tart, and we can hear you salivating from here. You can order any of their flaky, buttery treats filled with ooey gooey goodness online for pick up. Besides their tarts, the legends at Custard also sling goodies like lemon puff tarts, salted caramel cookies and almond croissant tarts that’ll send your taste buds in a frenzy.
So…many…cookies! Life’s too short for those White Wings do it yourself baking boxes. This is where Dough House comes to the rescue with the most amazing range of cookies/actual works of art! Flavours include Nuts about Nutella, MacaDAMMia, Creamy Caramel, Oh Oh Oreo and so many more delivered right to your house or even better, workplace! There’s vegan and gluten free options too, so no one misses out.
Oh My Waffle
If you thought that waffle heaven was simply a distant mirage on your dessert delivery horizon, think again. Offering OTT milkshakes and deliciously decorated hot choccies, put aside a good 10 minutes to peruse the menu at Oh My Waffle. While they don’t offer delivery directly on their site, you can find them on Doordash or UberEats. Delicious waffles delivered straight to our doorstep, here we come.
Burleigh Gelato Co.
If you needed some good news today, here it is: yes, you can order from Burleigh Gelato Co. Churning out your all-time favourites, hit up their online menu where you can order gelato cakes, take-home gelato tubs (uh, yes please?!), and add-ons like chocolate-dipped waffle cones, because why the hell not?
