Goya Cafe

If you simply cannot contemplate your day until you’ve detoured via your regular caffeine dealer and consider brunch the most important (and delicious) meal of the day, then you’ll appreciate Broadbeach newcomer Goya Cafe. The former Sens Coffee at the base of the Meriton has been transformed into a beautifully minimalist Japanese-inspired cafe with epic eats and some serious hip-hop vibes. The all-day brunch menu is inspired by street-side eateries in Osaka and Tokyo with a dash of Melbourne’s celebrated coffee culture. You won’t find bacon and egg burgers here, instead, Goya’s menu features okonomiyaki and Omurice curries loaded with 12-hour slow-cooked beef, miso red-wine gravy and Japanese chilli. For serious starvations, the decadent sandos made with chunky slabs of homemade Shokupan (Japanese milk bread) are guaranteed to fill the void and are available in four mouth-watering combinations including  Tonkatsu pork and Angus beef tenderloin. Campos coffee flows through the machines alongside some Japanese sips including Hojicha lattes, iced matcha jelly and an iced mocha that’s humbly referred to as the best you ever had, and they’re not wrong. If you fancy something a little boozier, there’s a selection of Precinct Brewing Co’s craft beers on tap (available from 10:00 am) alongside house-made Umeshu (Japanese liqueur made by steeping ume plums), Japanese whisky, gin and sake.
