Tucked a way on a corner in Broadbeach is the Cardamom Pod Vegetarian Restaurant.

As you enter you can feel yourself relax and a sense of peace and calm, as if you stepped back to somewhere that real soul food is served.

The front of the cafe is decorated much like a Balinese or Thai gazebo with a fresh juice bar, reminiscent of a tropical resort. As you enter, to one side is a vertical wall filled with flowering plants and shrubs.

If all that beach-going leave you having really worked up an appetite, you are in the right place.

You can select the platters of food, where you get to choose from a wide array of hot and cold dishes with fantastic salads.

You can also add a huge home-made samosa with delicious home-style relish.

But the real reason many people come here is for the healthy and delicious deserts.

We tried the home style cheese cake with blue berry home-made ice cream and it was absolutely delicious. In fact we were staying nearby for three days and we came here three times over for the deserts.

I ordered tea and it was served in these beautiful old metal teapots that were so heavy you could barely lift them. It really made for quite a lovely tea drinking experience.

The home-made fruit juices and smoothies were fresh, organic and delicious.
