With the coffee scene on the Gold Coast burgeoning in the past couple of years it should come as no surprise that our little city is now home to a new, more caffeinated concept in High Tea: the High Coffee at the InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort.
Guests to The Fireplace on the ground floor of The Great House are invited to indulge in the art of coffee and conversation, whilst being treated to what seems like never ending savoury and sweet delights. The coffee at the centre of all this goodness is Vittoria Coffee Single Origin blends that are slow brewed in a Chemex system making for a great cup of filtered coffee.
With so many treats to choose from, some of the favourites on our visit were the Applewood smoked chicken finger sandwich, the smoked pumpkin scones and all the coffee infused sweets with Chef Harry’s Fireplace signature éclair with coffee custard making for a serious indulgence for the eyes and the tastebuds.
Perhaps our most favourite part of the High Coffee experience is the optional espresso martini (additional $10) that is well worth indulging in, but you may have trouble stopping at just one!
High Coffee ($35) is served Friday to Sunday from 12:30pm with bookings being essential to guarantee a decadent afternoon that you will not soon forget.
