Plant Based Cafe
Located on Grice Avenue in Paradise Point (next door to Cross + Feather), Plant Based Cafe aims to bring creative, eye-catching and, most importantly, delicious plant-based food options to the northern end of the Gold Coast. The breakfast menu covers all bases with colourful granola bowls (featuring saffron-poached pear and creamy almond-soaked chia), a chickpea and spring-pea omelette with caramelised onion and pesto mayo, and a towering stack of fluffy ‘Nutella’ pancakes finished with organic coconut ice-cream, blueberry compote and fresh seasonal fruit. The lunch menu kicks into gear from 11:30 am with hearty eats like the Chi-kin Burger, featuring a housemade ‘chicken’ patty made from an artichoke base with creamy slaw, plant-based cheese and pickled gherkin, plus piping-hot baskets of spiced cauliflower wings with sauces and aged pickles, and other hand-held options like BBQ Pulled Pawk Tacos. There’s also organic brews by Byron Bay Coffee Company pouring, and a hunger-busting series of smoothies.
