Surfers Paradise resembles that of an oversized fun park; a backdrop of commercialism and bright lights is often what sparks the attention. However, amongst the numerous chain stores, fast food burger joints and seedy nightclubs lies a little slice of heaven; Black Coffee Lyrics.
One of the many features enhancing the chic vintage appeal.
Whether it's a coffee on the run with a nibble of cake on the side, breakfast amongst mates for a Sunday morning recovery or a lunch or casual dinner accompanied with a bottle of your choice of red, Black Coffee Lyrics exceeds the expectations for a new-fangled café which has all the bells and whistles. From great music, to classic books and old school board games, this café exudes charismatic style and good times.
The taste buds will tingle with a wide variety of food and beverages to tempt the fussiest eater, from vegetarian lasagna to seafood carbonara to burgers, with most mains sided with a choice of salad or potato and pumpkin fries. Crack a bottle-of-whatever, because it's BYO with any main meal purchase and hang out with a great bunch of people who create an atmosphere of fun, creativity, comfort and somewhere you might just end up calling home. The décor invites you in to a realm of chic vintage, something like a trendy grandma's place.
My only grumble would be the accessibility of finding it. The rabbit hole that is Surfers Paradise may leave you wandering around in circles if you're not a local. This quaint little dwelling can be found at Shop 40/41, 3131 Surfers Paradise Blvd, Surfers Paradise Australia (across from Waxy's Irish Pub).
The prices are reasonable and the coffee is a blend made from organic and fair trade beans, so there is no guilt with such pleasure. With prices suiting the most penny-pinching diner, Black Coffee Lyrics is a café that you can easily waste a day away in.
