Former Siam Orchid site in Burleigh will soon be home to Californian-style daytime haven Palm Springs
Burleigh locals, cafe hoppers and those that love a midday marg’ (we’ve pretty much covered all of you now), here’s some big news. The two-storey Gold Coast Highway-fronting site formerly home to longstanding Thai restaurant Siam Orchid has been taken over by a Gold Coast-based group set to transform the iconic Burleigh Heads venue into a LA-inspired cafe and lunch spot named Palm Springs.
Works have already begun on the well-known premises, which we’re told will be completely transformed into a dreamy, breezy, Palm Springs-esque cafe, complete with a mid-century-modern aesthetic shaped by a luminous white interior and natural timbers. Around 80–100 seats will sprawl inside and downstairs in a desert-style garden, where you’ll be able to enjoy coffee, brunch and lunch in the sunshine.
Details of the menu are being kept under wraps for now, though the owners have revealed it’ll be a Southern Californian-inspired breakfast offering (think proper breakfast burritos) that will lead effortlessly into long lunches paired with margaritas, mimosas and bloody Marys. Palm Springs is on track for a mid-November opening – as always, we’ll have more details for you and an inside look very soon! In the meantime, stay across its progress on Instagram.
