22 September 2021

Caffeine lovers- whether you keep your coffee intake to one a day or you’re bordering on consumption via IV drip, National Coffee Day is approaching and Sanctuary Cove has 500 reasons to celebrate. On October 1st, Pier B will be slinging 500 complimentary coffees from 9am!

Since their inception at Sanctuary Cove in 2017, Pier B has quickly become a wholefood hot spot. Whilst known for their vegan, gluten free and keto eats, their coffee has also gained strong popularity at Sanctuary Cove, so you can expect a perfect cup of Joe on October 1st. The team at Pier B use Allpress Espresso beans, who adopt an exclusive Hot Air Roasting Method, allowing the unique character of every bean to shine through. This particular roasting method dissipates the smoky, burnt taste that you may find in other brands or roasts of coffee (aka every coffee drinker’s worst nightmare!). It would be remiss of us not to mention the other equally delicious coffee spots at Sanctuary Cove that you can visit on National Coffee Day, and every other day of the year for a latte or two. Here are a few of our favourites.

Anchor Buoy

Pop into Anchor Buoy for a spot of waterfront dining and a cup of Elixir coffee, roasted right here in Queensland. Elixir is Australia’s most awarded coffee roaster, with 46 awards under their belt since 2010. If this hasn’t piqued your interest, visit the Anchor Buoy team and taste the coffee for yourself, whilst sitting back in the serenity of Sanctuary Cove Marina.

Quay Street

If we had to describe Quay Street in one word… it would be SWEET! Their cabinet is always stocked full with house-made cakes, tarts and assorted treats; but if you’re on a health kick there’s still plenty for you to enjoy like fresh juices, acai bowls and of course- coffee. In true Quay Street fashion, the team have deliciously indulgent coffee flavours available, their best seller being a salted caramel iced latte.

Bistro 19

Bistro 19 is known as “the best coffee in the cove”… enough said! Their brunch menu has a little bit of everything from a classic eggs benedict to their signature Golden Corn Fritters which, in addition to their coffee, have gained quite the reputation within the Sanctuary Cove community.

Café Bravo

If you’re in a rush and need a coffee on-the-go, Café Bravo will be your go-to. Known for their traditional, family style brunches, Café Bravo is a great spot to stop in for a big breakfast and a flat white. Or, grab your coffee and breakfast takeaway from 7am everyday.



Window shopping for homewares is best spent with a coffee in-hand, and Destino certainly has both sorted. With sustainably sourced and locally roasted Campos beans in the grinder, know that when you’re sipping on a coffee from Destino, you’re supporting coffee growers and their communities. Campos invests in every community that they operate in, with an overarching goal to transform and empower generations to come.

Rosé Gelateria

If a vanilla bean affogato or nutella infused latte (aka a nutellatte- yes you read that right!) tickles your fancy, head straight to Rosé Gelateria. A number of their housemade artisan gelato flavours pair so well with coffee, so it was a no brainer to create decadently flavoured lattes!

Rosé Gelateria has a strong focus on supporting small business and local makers, so it’s no surprise they partner with Supreme Roasters to create their delicious brews. Founded and operated on the Gold Coast, Supreme Roasters have built their business over the last decade, providing nothing but the highest quality specialty coffee.

Lee’s IGA

Make strolling through the supermarket aisles more enjoyable with a barista made Merlo Coffee from Lee’s IGA’s Takeaways. Or perhaps you don’t even need to leave the house to get your favourite cup of coffee… If you, your partner (or your Nespresso machine- we don’t judge) make it just how you like it, get everything you need from Lee’s IGA. Stocked with a wide range of beans, pods and various milks, Lee’s IGA is your one stop shop to make your morning coffee in the comfort of your own home.
