Blackboard Specialty Coffee (Varsity Lake, QLD)
On a lovely weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting a friend on the Gold Coast with several others, and we stopped by Blackboard Specialty Coffee. This spacious rustic cafe located near the Bond University campus serves predominantly their specialty coffee, with just a few food items on the side.
We made a special visit to try their bottled iced coffee made with maple syrup, which gives the coffee just a light hint of fragrance and sweetness. The coffee was decent, as they work with Cup Coffee in West End (big coffee roasters in Brissy), but I think it was really the novelty of the maple syrup that had us sold. The ambience was quiet and relaxing and a great place for catching up with friends. Next door is their grocer, which carries international foods, organic goods, and of course, their bottled coffee!
