If you’re an early riser or in a hurry, Boost on Cavill Mall opens at 6.30am each day. Pick up your favourite smoothie or juice (ours is the classic Mango Magic) and take yours down to the sand to watch the sun rise over the ocean. There’s a second Boost located closer to Surfers Paradise Boulevard that opens at 9am.
Went a little too hard on the glitter strip last night? There’s a big breakfast with your name on it. Charlie’s Cafe & Bar opens at 7am serving waffles, pancakes, big breakfasts and all the classics. Kitty O’Shea’s does an Irish take on a big breakfast, complete with black pudding.
If your morning doesn’t start until you’ve had your coffee, make a B-line for Starbucks. Open from 6.30am the coffeehouse serves up everything from strong espresso to sweet iced frappes. Krispy Kreme is also open from 9am serving its original glazed doughnut alongside barista-made espresso coffee and shakes.
Rise and shine for a breakfast burger with proper bacon, eggs and more. Hungry Jack’s offers brekky burgers, hash browns, BLATs, wraps and breakfast muffins until 11am each day.
Whether you like your morning meal sweet or savoury, Crepe Addict flips French-style crepes with both toppings, plus pancakes, waffles and omelettes. Ooh la la!
Get your mitts around a breakfast burrito, breakfast quesadilla or guacamole on toast at Guzman y Gomez. If you’re not an early riser this is a great place to meet your crew for brunch as the Mexican diner only opens at 8am.
