Breakfast dates and caffeinated liquid goods all delivered with relaxed yet attentive service in a beachy, sun-drenched setting, Refinery Coffee has your all-day weekend brunching nosh covered. This Currumbin industrial estate-based cafe recently received a beautiful white and bright revamp—including the addition of a full-service kitchen and alcohol license—so if you’ve visited before, you basically won’t recognise it.
Expect to find healthy green bowls loaded with quinoa, avo, hummus, sauerkraut, poached egg and more, or roasted field mushrooms and avo on sourdough. For lunch, the chipotle chicken burger with ginger lime aioli is an early favourite. The best news? They’re licensed from 10am, so no one will bat an eye if you order a glass of vino or local beer with your baked chai apple buckwheat waffles, because it’s 5pm somewhere, right?
