Bites, brews and neighbourhood vibes – Palm Beach welcomes newcomer Sisterhood Coffee
The bustling seaside hub of Palm Beach has scored a new brew-slinging brunch spot in the form of Sisterhood Coffee. Local hospitality identity Christie Graae and chef Sam Dunne partnered up to take over the site formerly occupied by Mr Bengel along the Gold Coast Highway, transforming the space into the southern end’s newest neighbourhood hang.
The doors to Sisterhood Coffee quietly opened last Friday (May 31), after a fortnight of keeping passers-by and rubberneckers intrigued as the new venue took shape on the high-traffic Palm Beach site. Christie and Sam have set out to strip things back to basics, delivering a menu that’s intentionally simple, yet comforting, combining it with great coffee (by Melbourne roaster Genovese) and a genuine neighbourhood vibe. The all-day menu covers all of your breakfast and brunch classics, from eggs on toast to a hearty breakfast burger, and zucchini and fetta fritters. There’s also a nourish bowl finished with spiced capsicum and labneh, soul-warming baked eggs with Boston beans and sausage, and for the sweet tooths – housemade waffles with a berry-infused cream-cheese frosting, fresh fruit, lemon curd and a mini pitcher of maple syrup.
The ethos at Sisterhood is simple – it’s all about the people. For instance, Christie and Sam know a fair chunk of us are drinking milk alternatives nowadays and they also know that some of us don’t vibe with gluten – so they don’t charge extra for ‘normal’ things like almond milk (or any non-milk) or gluten-free bread. There are also plans down the track to work closely with the local community, including introducing a line of tote bags to raise money for women’s refuges, as well as after-hours cooking classes with local community groups, youth centres and disability organisations.
