Review of Paradox Coffee Roasters – Surfers Paradise

Located in the trendy 4217 precinct, Paradox Coffee Roasters is the reason I’ve been venturing into Surfers Paradise lately. Boasting a mouthwatering selection of sweet treats, amazing coffee, beautiful meals and a kids play area. What more could you ask for? Free parking perhaps? Tick, they’ve thrown in 2 hours free parking for all customers.

This vibrant bustling cafe serves classic breakfast and lunch dishes with a “posh” twist. Pictured above is the fluffy three egg omelette with field mushrooms, tomato, spinach and a hint of chilli.


Another classic dish that’s worth trying is the bacon and egg bagel pictured below. It’s served with free range Byron Bay bacon, topped with a fried egg, rocket and homemade tomato relish.

If it’s coffee you’re after, then Paradox will undoubtedly satisfy. My coffee was silky smooth with perfectly balanced flavours.

Prices are a bit higher than normal but they make it up for it with friendly hipster staff and of course, you save on parking! The decor is modern and chic, with a charming sunny patio perfect for weekend brunching and people watching.
