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.

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.
If you have an afternoon where you're not too busy, you can sit, relax, and while away the afternoon at the Cardamom Pod Vegetarian Restaurant, just a short walk from the beach in Broadbeach.
