Want to have a delicious treat that is worth the gym time?
Manolas Bros. is a beautiful delicatessen, café and restaurant located on Isle of Capri at the sunny Gold Coast. I come here with my partner on days when we need to get out of the house and be around noise, bustling activity and the delicious aroma of wholesome food and mouth watering coffee.
Owned and operated by two brothers, Manolas Bros have a vast array of delectable treats not just in their deli but on their menu. Mainly Mediterranean inspired, you can easily have a light and healthy snack but I always seem to get pulled in by their sinful dessert window.
My partner, on the other hand, loves their croquettes and arancini balls which constantly vary in flavour. Even better (or worse depending on your diet), if you don't have time to sit down in their beautiful dining area, they have an excellent selection of take home pastas and soups, not to mention anything else that takes your eye. If you're not a big coffee buff, you will love the selection of smoothies and juices on their menu, not to mention their gluten free and vegetarian selection of yummy dishes.
The service is excellent and the staff always greet you with a big smile, make suggestions on the menu and make sure you are well watered along with being well fed. Manolas Bros is a great place to come for a family event (Mum absolutely loved it on Mothers Day), a client meeting or even if you just want to get out of the house and have something delicious in a place that makes you feel like you're at home.
I can't rave enough about this place. Each time I come here, the food is fresh, the coffee hot and the staff are warm and helpful. Nothing beats fresh, Mediterranean-inspired food made daily in a busy and lively atmosphere with great company. If you haven't already, I would definitely suggest visiting this place soon or coming by again if it has been a while. Make sure you try their daily pasta and Mars Bar cheesecake (if I haven't gotten to it first!).
