Gold Coast Itinery Day 2

It was another bright sunny day in Gold Coast and we started our morning with some breakfast at Coffee Club, a chain of cafe famous for its all day breakfast. This was one of their very first branch I think and we decided to start our day here:

The Coffee Club
2, Cavill Avenue, Surfers Paradise

We were not disappointed. I ordered the Honeycomb-Coffee I think...Looks special right? Hahaha but maybe a little early for this because it was pretty sweet and after the first few sips, I would prefer my usual latte. However, it was good, don't get me wrong. Maybe just not the first thing in the morning ;)

Ham & Egg Benedict
Some sort of chicken and mushroom wrap
Bacon & Egg
We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast even though I think we couldn't finish some of them. As it was our first few days, the enormous servings of bacon and ham were very much welcomed. Can't say the same on the last few days. LOL

Once our stomachs were filled, we started off to Sea World. The nearest bus stops were both about 450m away so we followed the route that my sister had already prepared beforehand. The bus was timely and we reached just a little before 930am, in time to join the crowd waiting for the gates to open. Heh. I will continue more about our Sea World trip in another post HERE.

By 4pm, when we were done with Sea World, we caught the bus back and made our way to our next highlight, SkyPoint Observatory which I have detailed HERE. We spent some time there before having our early dinner at a bistro we passed along the way.

The food was good and portions are generous. We ordered all these to share and sadly we couldn't finish everything even though there's three of us. :S This will be the first Italian cafe we went to in Gold Coast. On subsequent posts, I will share a few more Italian shops we tried (Yes, we are fans of Italian food). The service in this joint was also far better than another shop we went to on the next day.

Minestrone Soup
Stuffed Mushrooms
Prawns and pepperoni pizza
Muhsroom risotto

Alfresco on Elston
Shop 2 & 3, 3018 Surfers Paradise Blvd | Corner Hamilton Ave & Surfers Paradise Blvd, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast, Queensland 4217, Australia
Tel: 07 5538 9333

We were there early so the tables were pretty much empty. However as we were finishing our meals, large groups (all with booking) started to arrive. I think they are pretty busy during normal dinner hours so booking a table would be wise :)

We had a leisurely stroll along the beach before heading back to the hotel. It was a pretty amazing day with delicious meals throughout. :)
