You are welcome to enjoy their decadent Duchess High Tea in their lovely cafe. Passiontree Velvet is passionate about tea and serves only the finest quality full-leaf teas and craft blends by Harney & Sons.

Have you ever had high tea? You will have a wonderful time at Fixx Lounge & Cafe. Their interior is a bright and lively retro design, with one wall completely covered in lolly-coloured buttons for starters. Fixx Lounge & Cafe serves an organic menu of seasonal salads and hearty sandwiches, as well as coffee, magazines, and pool views.

In addition to these, the lounge and cafe serve High Tea. You'll love their stylish three-tiered stand full of delectable treats with a hint of their signature QT quirk, oozing with elegance.

Executive Chef Greg Benney and his team are responsible for savoury delicacies such as Beetroot and Whipped Goats Cheese Macarons, Mini Brioche Poppers, and Pea and Mint Arancini. Ferrero Rocher Tartlettes, Lemon Lime Mignon, QT Hand-Crafted Chocolate Treats, and other treats to choose from.

San Churro Surfers Paradise

Have you ever tried churros? Then visit San Churro, located at the Circle on Cavill South Tower in Surfers Paradise.

San Churro is a firm believer in the Spanish proverb "Mi casa su casa." It means that my house is now your house. This vibrant chain cafe is a gathering place for friends to share a sweet moment over churros, decadent desserts and Fairtrade coffee and tea.

Let's get back to churros. These are traditionally-handcrafted Spanish doughnuts served with cinnamon sugar and chocolate. San Churro makes churros from scratch every day, using a traditional dough recipe that is vegan-friendly and served with only the best chocolate.

San Churro's chocolate comes from only the best chocolatiers and is a real couverture. Couverture chocolate, as opposed to confectionary chocolate, is made with a high percentage of cocoa solids and 100 per cent pure cocoa butter. It's the 'REAL' chocolate, and true chocolate connoisseurs should not settle for anything less.

Max Brenner Chocolate Bar

In 2000, Max Brenner Chocolate Bar opened its doors to the Australian market. The 100% Australian owned, family-run business currently operates 26 Chocolate bars nationally, with the 27th store opening soon.

Max Brenner Chocolate Bar gives its customers a premium chocolate experience through their special chocolate recipe and unique dessert creations, which continuously evolves. The chocolate bar’s menu is divided into Sweet Icons like crepes and chocolate souffle. They also have for sharing like their Ultimate Chocolate Fondue and Sharing Platter, Sundae like their Banana Split Waffle Sundae, Decadent Pizza like their Bad Boy Brownie, Baked Max like their Mango Passion Dome and their Max 'N Go products.

Max Brenner’s chocolate bars are reminiscent of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory. It's a sensory experience that transports you to a fantasy world. So please don't pass up the opportunity to visit them.


Let's begin with gelato! This famous Italian frozen dessert is a crowd-pleaser. Gelatissimo's artisan gelato is made fresh in-store every day, using only the best ingredients and no artificial colours or flavours.
