Dark Fluid Espresso
Located in Robina’s Easy T Centre, Dark Fluid Espresso is a haven for specialty coffee and daytime eats. The all-day breakfast menu leads into a succinct lunch offering – and while the cafe classics are there (avo toast, panna cotta granola and vanilla pancakes) you’ll also find dishes with a touch of European influence. Keep it simple with a Seven Miles coffee and a serve of German rye and marmalade, or fill the gap with the spicy chorizo omelette with roasted-pepper ajvar, or the indulgent croque madame, which is lovingly layered with ham off the bone, housemade bechamel and gruyere cheese before being topped with a fried egg. The lunch menu is kept simple with milk-bun burgers, salads and crispy skin salmon with pesto verde and capers, while rotating daily specials like handmade gnocchi and lasagnes will appear. Those keen for a grab-and-go bite will find sourdough sandwiches, wraps, salads and quiches in the cabinet – and well as sneaky homemade treats like almond cookies and French madeleines.
