The weather may have been unpredictable the last 24 hours, but Saturday was incredible! Toasty warm sunshine, bright blue skies and hair-tousling breezes – perfect beach weather. So, of course, we made it a point to pay Burleigh Heads a visit. My dear readers, let me give you a photographic tour of this wonderful coastal suburb that every visitor to the Gold Coast should experience at least once.
For refreshments, we dropped by Quest Coffee Roasters, which is this magical little rustic-looking coffeehouse along James Street. Their mocha frappé ($6) is seriously to die for. It comes in this really tall glass reminiscent of one of those retro milk bottles. I also quite like that they have a diverse selection of baked goodies on display. As a local micro-roaster, Quest also offers some very high quality fresh roasts and homemade blends. Because James is starting to get into brewing his own coffee lately, he purchased a bag of organic Costa Rican Colibri Tarrazu whole beans and a bag of freshly ground Sumatran Mandheling Kuda Mas coffee while we were there.
