Among the many excellent things we offer here on the Gold Coast, smooth coffee and epic little eateries are absolutely at the top of the bragging list.
It does mean we’re often spoilt for choice but thankfully we’re here to seek out the best spots, so you can start your day right. Enter, Sisterhood Coffee, Palm Beach’s newest addition to the café scene—and we guarantee you’re going to love her.
Located along Gold Coast Highway, Sisterhood has taken over the space formerly occupied by Mr Bengal, meaning it’s the ideal spot for brekky followed by a beach stroll. The eatery is the brainchild of mates Christie Graae (formerly of Tucker Casuarina) and Sam Dunne (formerly of Little Mali), who after years in the hospitality industry decided they wanted to create a café that welcomed everyone, from hipsters to your gran.
“We’re all about creating community vibes,” says Graae. “We want Sisterhood to be a home away from home, where people can come and relax and sit for hours.”
The space, which has been completely redecorated, is pure coastal cool. Think concrete floors, crisp white walls, splashes of mint green, clusters of hanging greenery and warm pendant lights. There’s even a kid’s corner to occupy little ones and a basket of rugs to keep you warm on those crisp morning coffee runs.
Speaking of coffee, Sisterhood is serving up some delicious brews. Using Genovese Coffee from Brisbane, expect a smooth but strong bodied cuppa with notes of caramel. And to prove they’re just all-around good humans, Graae and Dunne have decided not to charge extra for alternative milks or gluten-free bread.
“We go through more almond milk than any others,” adds Dunne. “We want to strip away the ego of cafes, serve great coffee and bring the food back to basics serving simple, homely and affordable dishes.”
The menu is full of delicious all-day breakfast options, with many of the ingredients sourced locally like the bacon and sausages which come from Palm Beach butcher Kingswood Park, a mere 500 metres down the road.
While the menu will change seasonally, right now you can gorge on mixed mushrooms sautéed in garlic herb butter, served on crusty bread topped with wilted spinach and fetta. There’s also the Nourish Bowl with two poached eggs, bacon, greens, spiced capsicum, seeds and labneh. Or, if you’re after something to warm you up, try the baked eggs with Boston beans, free-range egg and sausage. Sweet tooths will love the waffles with berry cream cheese frosting, seasonal fruit, house-made lemon curd and maple syrup.
See what we mean when we say it’s going to become your new favourite?
Sisterhood Coffee is open every weekday from 5.30am, and 6am on weekends.
