Wrap up Burleigh’s carefree bohemian surf culture in a cafe nutshell and it likely looks like Burleigh Social. Not only are they making some of the best breakfasts on the Gold Coast, such as their signature eggs benny on a croissant (seriously, why hadn’t someone thought of this earlier?), but their coffee and friendly service is always on the mark. Grab a smoothie, or a hot or cold brew depending on your mood, and find some shade under the brollies and picnic tables; this spot is about as quintessential Gold Coast as you’ll find anywhere.
