This is a two part review… part one was with the Web Princess (WP) from Melbourne… Yes she is my friend and yes I know she is famous 🙂 and part two was with the Top Ten Team… So you know it was good because I went twice in a time span of only two weeks!
WP was on the Gold Coast for a Pro Blogger conference and so it was so nice to be able to catch up and talk and talk and talk about what is going on in our lives. You know when you have those people in your life that you really like and you keep in contact by Facebook and the occasionally email and then when you get to catch up in person it is fantastic and just like a day hasn’t gone by since you last had a conversation. Well, WP and I are like that… I think we talked for over 3 hours!!!
You will find this coffee gem at shop 10 Palm Beach Ave, Palm Beach, Gold Coast, Queensland. They are open for breakfast, lunch and a little bit of in-between 7 days a week! There website is www.barefootbarista.com.au so check them out.
The coffee part one was a espresso because I wanted to try the single origin blend and part two was a piccolo so I could try the blended coffee made for milk.
Both coffees were smooth, delicious and satisfying.
WP enjoyed her latte as did Tan and Simone (as usual) had a skinny hot chocolate which she said was very nice!
Now the food is good! It tasted better than the pics… ummm that is mostly to do with the fact that the top ten team started eating before photos were taken… 🙁 but we where hungry and sometimes life isn’t always about the blog! 🙂
WP and I had plenty to talk about, because we hadn’t seen each other (in person) for about 3 years, but a few people (ummm men) have asked me what we talk about every week!
Well… honestly I’m not really sure. We always find something to talk about…! For me it is usually the latest thing I am cooking, the Thermomix business or something to do with health and sustainable living…(but I do talk about other things).
Our latest meeting was a variety of conversation selections. We talked about the latest happenings of Tan and Sim’s gorgeous kids. We talked about what needs to be fixed around the various houses.
We talked about and organised a BBQ at Sim’s, booked in a date for Tan’s Birthday gathering, and organised a Pop up restaurant in January on Tan’s property. I am going to be cooking. So I am looking forward to that… it could be fun!
So there you have it… wonderful food, fantastic coffee, great company…twice! I have to say it just lacked a little atmosphere… but it is a bit hard to compare since the amazing find of VIVRE A VIE ORGANIC BAKERY AND CAFE from the last review.
A lemon curd and coconut cake… It was the perfect end to a wonderful catch up with a special friend.
Just make sure you appreciate your friends, because they are the family you choose!
I grabbed a photo of this because they write funny things on their board at the front of the cafe. This signage greeted us as we entered… (it was a perfect Queensland sun shining, birds chirping kind of day)
So if you are in the area, pop by and say hi to the hip, barefoot barrister staff and grab one of the best coffees on the Coast.
