Bumbles Cafe: A Must Try on the Gold Coast

LOOKING for a great spot to grab a bite while visiting the Gold Coast?

Look no further than Bumbles Cafe, located a mere 5-minute walk from the heart of Surfers Paradise.

Last week I paid a visit with relatives and we were certainly not disappointed!

We took advantage of their delicious breakfast menu, which was full of traditional favourites like bacon and eggs, as well as some more contemporary options like Halloumi Hula.

The latter dish was my choice—it included halloumi cheese topped with grilled zucchini, pea pesto, poached eggs, and roasted field mushrooms.

It was so delicious that I would definitely order it again on my next visit.

We were all pleased with our meals. The ingredients were fresh and the portions generous—the perfect way to start the day.

The service was also impeccable; the staff was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu items, and quick to clear away plates when we had finished eating.

Besides the amazing food and service, the cafe is full of character. The decor is modern chic with vintage flair, which just added to its charm.

Not only is Bumbles Cafe a brilliant spot for breakfast, it’s also perfect for lunch.

Their lunch menu offers everything from prawn pies to focaccias or fish and chips, through to the Queen Bee Burger or Fragrant Asian Chicken Salad, and more—definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for a delicious meal after exploring all that Surfers Paradise offers.

Community hub

Bumbles Cafe owner Kate Madison has never been short of ambition.

From running Cafe Mocha, Madisons at the Oasis, and 3 Beans Espresso Bar—Kate had big dreams for all her projects.

After selling Madisons and 3 Beans, Kate took a break from Gold Coast, but there was no place like home and a year later, she returned, excited about what the future held.

When the former convenience store on the Bumbles site closed down, she couldn’t resist taking a chance on it with ideas bubbling away in her head ready to create something spectacular again.

Customers have often asked her how this quirky cafe got its name—all it took were some doodles of hers, an internet search or two, oh, and maybe a glass (or few) of white wine!

Bumbles Cafe is now an iconic café on Queensland’s iconic Gold Coast.

On weekday mornings, you’ll find lawyers in pinstripe suits holding business meetings over coffee and cake, or book club ladies catching up for a chat—but come the weekend, it’s all about friends and families tucking into some delicious breakfast or lunch dishes.

No matter what your occasion or time of day Bumbles has become part of everyday life on the Gold Coast.
