We just love how all the little villages of the Gold Coast have their own distinct personalities. So we thought we’d check in with you folks and find out just where you love to stop and shop when you’re pottering around your local precinct.
For this month’s edition we asked you about your fave places in the quaint and stunning surrounds of Mudgeeraba:
The Whisky Lounge
When it comes to whisky, these folks know what they’re about. The Whisky Lounge offers a wide range of whisky experiences that will lead you into the wide world of whisky, including masterclasses, private tastings and whisky flights. Visit @whiskyloungemudgeeraba and get on your way to becoming a connoisseur.
The Hunted Café
The Hunted Cafe offers amazing locally sourced coffee, tasty food, takeaway beautiful gifts and even corner store products, making it a bit of a one stop shop. All amongst stunning valley surrounds, too. Check out @thehuntedcafe.
Mudjira Village Eatery
Mudjira is the Indigenous name for Mudgeeraba, and means ‘a place of many stories’. The team takes great pride in their delicious seasonal food and house-made accompaniments, with a focus on local flavours, fresh ingredients and a range of dietary-requirement-friendly fare. @mudjiravillageaeatery.
The Oak Café
A real local’s local, The Oak Café does a range of unique dishes including Eggs (not) Benny, Chicken Gyros and Loaded CPS (Crunchy Potato Squares). Drool. The service and coffee are reportedly outstanding, too. Visit @the_oakgc.
According to our locals in the know, Millers Espresso is a strong rival to The Oak Café for coffee and friendly service. But hey, given there is no shortage of folks wanting top shelf coffee served with a smile, we guess it just means that Mudgeeraba is one lucky village! @millersespresso. Try the bagels.
Anekawa is relatively new to the scene but is already making waves. An intimate Japanese dining experience that focuses on bio-diverse, Australian ingredients from ethical resources and traditional Japanese cooking methods, @anekawagc is a must-do for all foodies.
The Wallaby Hotel
I mean, who doesn’t love the Wallaby? One of the best and most long standing live original music venues on the coast, The Wallaby Hotel has seen its share of fun nights out. It’s not just for partygoers though, especially with its recent reno, huge back deck, enclosed kid’s area and really, really, tasty new menu. They don’t have an Insta, so fb.com/thewallabyhotel is your go to.
The Barbers on Swan Lane
Hugely popular with locals, the Barbers on Swan Lane are renowned for their cheerful, flexible, welcoming atmosphere, while still being very good at what they do. Lots of loyal long-term customers tell the story. A big fave. Fb.com/thebarbersonswanlane.
Gumnut Café Bakery
Tasty pies, sandwiches and sausage rolls are the go here. Oh, and definitely get the cream doughnuts. Or any doughnuts. Or how about anything off the menu? That’d be great, thanks. Nice location in Mudgeeraba Market Shopping Centre and great coffee, too. They’re not online. Old school!
Mudgee Bah Espresso
So what is it with Mudgeeraba and awesome cafes? Is there an abundance of highly discerning café patrons living in the village? We’ll just have to assume so, because Mudgee Bah Espresso also got a big shout out from locals. Great hollandaise and a lemon meringue pie that’s better than your nan’s apparently. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. @mudgee_bah.
Le Vintage Boutique Café
Okay, okay, so it’s in Worongary. But those Mudgeerabarbarians (?) can’t keep everything for themselves! Not just a great place to stop in for all the usual toasties, sweets, coffee and breakfast, it’s a pet-friendly café as well, so you can bring your beloved pooch along for some treats. @Le_Vintage_Cafe.
Keep an eye on our socials, because for next month we’ll be asking you where to go in Paradise Point!
