Canvas Espresso – located a few metres down Lavarack Road toward Nobby beach – is a wonderful fusion of superior freshly ground coffee and a treasure trove of community artworks, just as its name suggests.
Owner and artist Stephanie Lawson’s vision has created a unique and inspiring space to grab a special blend, along with a wholesome snack, whilst surrounded by exquisite arts, crafts and homewares.
With easy parking, a communal window bar and cushioned curb-side seating, Canvas is small and simple spot to pick up a great brew and breaky or lunch and largesse. Canvas’ coffee blend of choice comes from Paradox Roasters on the Gold Coast. Their sparkling and bright ‘Picasso Baby’ keeps caffeine-lovers coming back for its juicy silky body and blackberry, cola and dark chocolate profile. You can also pick up a Simple Superfood Juice, Raw Earth Kombucha, Simple Organics low-sugar beverage or CocoCoast natural coconut water.
While Canvas doesn’t have an onsite kitchen, the abundant cabinet is filled daily with fresh savory and sweet treats. Complement your roast with savory delights such as pumpkin feta spinach quiche, sweet potato and broccoli frittata, haloumi and avocado on rye, salmon cream cheese bagels, bacon and egg brioche buns and the delicious salami swiss cheese on pumpkin, pictured.
If a sweet treat is your fancy, you can’t go wrong with the delectable selection, including artisan Loco Love chocolates, salted caramel apple slice, bliss balls, lemon meringue tarts, ginger and nut slices, pistachio, Nutella and peanut butter sandwich cookies. There are gluten free options like the ‘Heaven in Health’ slice, the sticky date pudding, chia seed brownies and the mango passionfruit cheesecake. You can also pick up specially selected local produce like Chilli Bay’s Chilli Oil and Wild Fire’s Special Reserve chilli sauce.
Every inch of Canvas is adorned with beautiful art, crafts, homewares and gifts, sourced specifically for being ethically produced and environmentally conscious. Displaying canvases from featured artists, such as the rich tones of Karina Jambrak, the natural hues of Pottery for the Planet, aromatic candles and bath soaks from Tyndal, Crawford & Co soaps, HelloLola Studio ceramics, candles and diffusers by Drift Trading Co, beautiful basketry and MoeMoe designed jewellery. You’ll also find spray of florals and foliage and a beautiful baby range on offer.
