It may seem like it popped up out of nowhere but Seadog in the park has actually been more than two years in the making. The pint-sized venue is accessed via Memorial Park and is focussed on liquid happiness, and by that we mean coffee, obviously. Grab and go or, for those who like to linger a little longer, there are a handful of picnic benches shaded by blue and white umbrellas. In a hurry? Order ahead here and your brew will be ready when you arrive so you can continue on your merry way with a little extra pep in your step. In true Seadog style, what the venue lacks in size it more than makes up for in personality, passion and excellent coffee. Seadog in the park brews its own blend that is lovingly referred to as No Bad Days and brings together beans from three different parts of Colombia to create one delightfully smooth sip. Coffee purists and espresso enthusiasts can enjoy a weekly rotation of single origin from Marvell Street Coffee Roasters whilst iced-latte lovers can keep their cool with their beverage of choice arriving at their table in a custom-made ceramic cup adorned with a cute paper cocktail umbrella.
For now, Seadog in the park is focussing exclusively on coffee however Brodie has some big plans for the small space that will hopefully (fingers crossed) involve light food in the not-too-distant future. The caffeine hub is part of the Burleigh Heads Bowls Club’s grand plan to make the most of the venue’s prime position, increase patronage and appeal to a broader demographic – so if you like the sound of yoga on the lawn and wellness events, keep your peepers peeled on the Club’s Facebook here. The coffee will be brewing seven days a week.
