Affectionately known as The LC (AKA, Lovechild Market Place), this 1,000-square metre, two-level venue, with a prominent position on the northern bound lane of the Gold Coast Highway between Miami and Nobby Beach, is certain to become a vibrant new hangout for every Gold Coaster.
Downstairs, leading plant-based businesses are open seven days for breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. With wooden decked seating at the front under an area named THE PATIO, picture a feature breeze block wall and greenery-filled garden area dubbed the BREEZE GARDEN (for those who choose to dine from more casual eateries such as Flour of Life Bakery). And, what we’re seriously frothing over, the grand wooden deck spanning the 200-square metre rear area, with a licensed bar and alfresco dining zone, and more good vibes than you’ll possibly know what to do with.
Casual, high end-style restaurants to form THE DINES include Flour of Life Bakery, Gigi's pizzeria (all the way from Sydney!), Flora By Greenhouse, I Like Ramen and the world's first plant-based kebabs by BVK (Burgers vs Kebabs). Get excited, Gold Coast!
