Savour every sip at Paradox Coffee Roasters
If you’re passionate about your coffee, you’ll meet your caffeine-loving counterpart at Paradox Coffee Roasters at The 4217 in Surfers Paradise. A far cry from churn-and-burn style coffee shops, Paradox is a place to sit and savour the experience.
As its name suggests, the newly opened cafe at The 4217 in Surfers Paradise is a shrine of sorts for people to come together and enjoy the ritual that is the morning coffee. The establishment’s signature offering is roasted fresh in-house by their very own master roaster and served within a week to ensure the output is consistently fresh. The Paradox house blend consists of specialty grade Nicaraguan and Ethiopian Sidamo coffees and there is drip and filter coffee available to remedy your caffeine craving.
Alongside coffee, Paradox Coffee Roasters offers an extensive food menu that was personally created by head chef Dennis Duncanson, who spent 10-years working at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant in the United Kingdom. Jamie’s philosophy when it comes to preparing food has rubbed off on Dennis as the fare here is rustic and true to taste. There is no foam or squiggles but rather good quality produce that is prepared simply to allow the true flavour of the ingredients to shine through. The breakfast menu offers all of your traditional morning favourites with a slight English-twist, the Old Skool Bubble & Squeek, for example, alongside some interesting culinary creations including the Croque Madam which is pan flashed spinach, mustard bechamel, gruyere and fried egg. The new lunch menu, that is hot-off-the-press today, is designed to encourage a shared dining experience and offers colourful seasonal salads as well as tasty morsels of braised pork meat balls with crushed tomato, fresh basil and shaved parmesan, Kinkawooka mussels with chilli, garlic, white wine and parsley and crispy three cheese croquettes topped with angry sauce, shaved pink lady apple and pea shoots.
