Gemelli Italian

2/2685 Gold Coast Hwy, Broadbeach, 4218 QLD
Happy children mean happy parents, and what child doesn’t love pizza? Even better, what child doesn’t love GIANT PIZZA. All pizza’s at Gemelli’s are available to order in metre sizes, the kids will have a blast cutting off their own slice! There’s also several options for Mum and Dad including grilled quail, handmade pasta and enormous field mushrooms. Did we mention the park next door to run all those carbs off?

Cardamom Pod

2685-2689 Gold Coast Highway Broadbeach, 4218 QLD
Your kids don’t have to be vegetarian or even like vegetables all that much to enjoy the food here. In fact one of the all time favourites is the cheesy lasagne, shepherds pie, moussaka, and cauliflower and cheese bake. Of course there are plenty of healthy options including a wide range of salads as well as curry, stir fry and more. Plus they have a smoothie and ice cream bar, as well as alfresco dining on the park, so the kids can run around while you enjoy your after lunch coffee or dessert.

Oasis Shopping Centre’s Outdoor Foodie Precinct

Broadbeach Mall, 4218 QLD
This will potentially blow out your families ‘eat out meals’ while on holidays, but you are already in the Gold Coast’s foodie precinct, so we blame you!

Main Street Burger, Mario’s, Harajuku Gyoza, and Elk Espresso are among some of our favourite, and if you’re looking for an after lunch coffee be sure to drop by Hand Espresso between McDonalds and Envy for the best espresso in Broadbeach!
