Tiny coffee hub Seadog slings specialty brews in the heart of Burleigh
Last week James Street in Burleigh Heads welcomed a new coffee dispensary called Seadog. It may be small (well, it’s tiny – it took over the space formerly occupied by an ATM) but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in personality, passion and caffeine. Consider yourself a coffee purist? This is one pint-sized hub you’ll be glad you stumbled across.
Seadog is the brainchild of local barista Brodie Green, who wanted to create his own coffee-centric hub without the pressure, outlay and running costs that come with opening a traditional cafe. The space is just four square metres, but when you’re all about quality coffee, what more do you need? From its tiny digs, Seadog pumps out on-the-go specialty brews from 6:00 am daily, or if you’re lucky you can nab one of the three bar stools and sit and watch Brodie work his magic from behind the olive-green La Marzocco machine.
The nook offers two bean varieties – there’s an organic house bean by ORG Coffee available on the daily for milk-coffee drinkers, while the espresso and long-black sippers will be slung a new bean each week, showcasing a range of boutique roasters and various origins from across the globe. You’ll also be pleased to know Seadog’s cows milk and milky alternatives like almond and coconut are all organic, while in the cabinet you’ll find a tasty selection of raw slices, Hrvst St cold-pressed juices and ice-cold kombucha stubbies.
