As a part of my job, I was sent down to the Gold Coast for the day to take some video and photos for use online. It was a long, hot day, and I really do not like sand. However, I did find something that I liked. There is an Illy caffe on the Gold Coast.
I found it on Surfers Paradise Boulevard situated amongst the fashion shops. It has been a while since I was able to visit the Illy caffe on Eagle Street in the CBD in Brisbane, so I was very eager to take a break and grab a long black.
And why this matters
Illy does a very nice coffee blend, and their branded cafes are very good at demonstrating this. Their look and feel are also very polished, and while their menu is also very limited, there is a real emphasis on good quality ingredients. So, an Illy cafe is usually a very safe choice if you are after a good coffee.
