Ketogenic cafe and health-food haven Brio Emporium expands with a new hub in Southport
Gold Coast-born health-food hub Brio Emporium, known for its gut-friendly bone broths and eye-popping Fay Boy Sundaes, is going from strength to strength. Buoyed by demand from health-conscious foodies and ketogenic eaters, the owners of the popular low-carb and full-fat cafe have recently opened its third venue – this time venturing a little further north to give Southport locals a taste of its goodness.
The anticipated opening of the Southport location also marks the end of an era for Brio Emporium, with founders Mark and Atlanta Fowler opting not to renew the lease on Brio’s original digs on the Gold Coast Highway in Broadbeach, with its flagship location closing just a few weeks ago. Though, lovers of its gluten-free, refined-sugar free and anti-inflammatory cuisine can still curb their cravings at its smaller Broadbeach location nestled in The Oasis, its Burleigh Waters outpost, and, of course, at its newest venue at Southport Park Shopping Centre.
The latest addition adopts a similar offering to its Burleigh Waters sibling, with Brio’s full menu of breakfast-style bowls and protein bowls on offer, which come brimming with the likes of grass-fed beef brisket and free-range pork belly in katsu sauce. There’s also an extensive menu of raw bowls and smoothies on offer, as well as cups of Brio’s signature piping-hot anti-inflammatory bone broth. The Insta-famous Fat Boy Sundaes (whoa mama), which are smothered with cookies, chocolate bars, paleo kibble and chocolate sauce, will also be on offer at Southport, as well as the full breadth of coffee, tonics and coffee alternatives, from butter-laden bulletproof coffees to ‘functional’ turmeric lattes.
