Cheap cafés & treats on the Gold Coast: things to know before you go

If you fancy treating someone to high tea, it's essential you know the best cafés and Gold Coast restaurants to visit. We've pulled together some of the best café deals to make it easier.

What's the best place for afternoon tea on the Gold Coast?

Competition is fierce when searching for afternoon tea on the Gold Coast – there are lots of great places along the glorious coastline vying for your attention. As a useful starting point, some suggestions for the best spots for high tea include QT Gold Coast and the glitzy Palazzo Versace. QT Gold Coast can be found at Surfer's Paradise, which is teeming with excellent cafés.

Do your research and look around for high tea deals on the Gold Coast to find somewhere that appeals to you and your budget. Clifford's Grill and Lounge is located close to the beach and serves high tea with a touch of fizz. Enjoy sparkling wine with elegant macarons and sumptuous scones. Additionally, Marriott Resort and Spa serves up high tea at its Chapter and Verse lounge and bar, which overlooks Surfers Paradise.

5* hotel Palazzo Versace offers an incredible high tea experience along Main Beach in its restaurant Le Jardin. Be whisked away to France with afternoon tea with a difference, featuring bright colours and unusual textures.

What's the difference between tea and high tea?

Tea and high tea are different – tea usually describes a lighter meal taken in the middle of the afternoon (not just the hot drink), which is why it's also often referred to as afternoon tea. Typically, this is a pot of tea accompanied by light bites such as cakes, scones and dainty sandwiches.

High tea is a more substantial meal taken later in the day, with a larger selection of dishes. Expect bread, cheese, meats and even pies to be served at high tea.

Many high tea deals will present tiered platefuls of scones laden with cream and jam, along with sandwiches. Perhaps not ‘high tea' in the traditional sense but definitely hearty enough.

Why is it called high tea?

It's thought that the term ‘high tea' was born in the UK due to the participants originally using high-backed chairs. In contrast, tea was more commonly taken with people sitting in lower, lounge-style chairs to relax and sip their drink. You can enjoy a cup of tea anywhere, but high tea more formal.

What are the best coffee and cake combinations on the Gold Coast?

Coffee and cake are a gorgeous combination, so if you fancy spoiling yourself, you'll find lots of café deals on the Gold Coast serving up delicious sweet treats and excellent coffee and tea. Try the muffins at Paperbark Burleigh or the tasty cupcakes at Frosted Kitchen.

If you need more coffee-cake inspiration, here's some perfect pairings to get you started:

  • Chocolate cake and a latte: For those wanting to indulge their sweet tooth, a slab of rich chocolate cake goes down a treat washed down with a creamy latte
  • Victoria sponge and a cappuccino: Not too rich or too bland, these two are soulmates of the coffee and cake world - trust us.
  • Walnut cake and an americano: The nutty taste of walnuts perfectly complements the earthy aromas of this classic coffee bean.
