  • Sparrow Eating House has been on my radar for awhile, but it has been hard to visit with it being down the Gold Coast. We took advantage of the summer sunshine by hitting the beach several times last month, and I finally got to check them out.

  • 'Pretty' and 'idyllic' were my first impressions of Lakeview Espresso. Nestled comfortably in the midst of neat homes and quiet streets, Lakeview Espresso has a soothing view of the lake and small kids' playground across the street.

  • The SO had been to Hurricane's Grill on a business trip to Sydney some time ago and wasn’t adverse to the suggestion we should try their Gold Coast location for lunch. Obviously the Sydney outlet had made a decent impression and I had high hopes that a meaty lunch at Hurricane's Grill would satisfy my protein needs.
