Surfers Paradise Beach Café (and The Beach Bar)

Surfers Paradise

Surfers Paradise Beach Café and The Beach Bar are adjoining venues sharing the Soul Boardwalk with neighbouring Elston, on the bustling Esplanade strip looking out onto Surfers Paradise beach. 

The café and bar share the same vibrant yellow and white striped décor and are quite complementary.  While the Beach Cafe is a modern eatery, pizzeria and bar, the Beach Bar offers a wide range of wine, beers, spirits and cocktails.

Like neighbour Elston, the Beach café is blessed with a large, covered courtyard dining space, with timber and white-washed seating, lovely ocean views and a delightful breakfast menu, which includes their renowned Mediterranean eggs Benedict, Belgian waffles, fresh tropical fruits, and infamous big brekkie.  Freshly baked scones and a large variety of cakes and homemade muffins are available from mid-morning onwards throughout the day.

Homemade pastas, stone-baked pizzas, grilled Barramundi and chargrilled steaks are just a few of the many lunch and dinner suggestions.

The Beach Café is fully licensed to serve a wide selection of wine and beer, but there’s really nothing better than watching the waves while sipping a fresh fruit cocktail.

The adjoining Beach Bar is decked out with surfboards adorning the walls and pendant lights hanging from long thick rope – it’s all very summery and nautical.  The bar comes alive later in the day serving a selection of beers on tap, selected wines and sensational cocktails.  Listen out for live music daily from 3-6pm and keep an eye out out for the bar’s 3-5pm happy hour to score Tommy’s $10 Margaritas.

The Beach Bar also provides bar bites and snacks – under their ‘finger food’ menu you’ll find Buffalo wings, dips and Turkish bread, spring rolls, calamari and a share plate.  Pizzas are on late night menu which offers hungry revellers classics like the Supreme, Hawaiian, Meat Lovers and Mediterranean.
