Do you like to the finer things in life? Come on down to Flavors @ Ferry for a gourmet cafe-style feed to kickstart the day. Located just off Scarborough Street, Flavors @ Ferry makes for the perfect place to have brekky before work or to meet with co-workers over brunch. Had a couple too many wines last night? Flavors Full Breakfast is the perfect cure with double-smoked bacon, baked beans, eggs (free range), Spanish chorizo sausage and roasted tomato on toasted sourdough. Otherwise, the bircher muesli with banana, walnut, Greek yoghurt and honey would be the wiser choice for those looking after their waistlines.

If a great tasting coffee is your prerequisite for choosing which cafe to start your day, look no further than Raw Espresso. Whether you like cappuccinos, lattes, short blacks or piccolos, the talented baristas at this friendly cafe will pour your coffee to perfection. Hungry? The brekky bagels are a hit at Raw Espresso, but you really can’t go past the avocado smash with fetta and cherry tomatoes on toasted Turkish with poached eggs, topped with apple cider and macadamia dukkah (mmmm). Having recently extended trading hours to 5pm on weekdays, don’t hesitate to stop off at Raw Espresso for a little post-work snack either.

Another Scarborough Street special, Verdict Expresso is a real favourite among the early-rising Southport locals looking for a good wholesome meal before work. If you’re in a hurry, grab a quick yet tasty takeaway coffee from one of the hospitable staff and go on your way; however, we suggest you sit and treat yourself to their versatile breakfast menu. Can’t decide whether you want something sweet or savoury? Why don’t you have both? The savoury bacon and sweet banana pancakes with maple syrup is the perfect combination for you. If that doesn’t sound up your alley, don’t sweat, there’s a range of more traditional bacon and egg options cooked with the famous Verdict Expresso flair.
