New beginnings – popular Burleigh cafe Stones Throw announces a new southern location

We've got good news and bad news. Do you want the bad news first? Okay. Popular Burleigh Heads caffeine dispensary and cafe Stones Throw will be closing its doors at the end of September, with a proposed development and looming light-rail works forcing it out of the space. We'll counter that with the good – the owners have announced an exciting new location a little further south and will soon be opening the doors to Stones Throw 2.0.


Stones Throw has been fuelling local’s bellies with delicious breakfasts, grab-and-go eats and Fonzie Abbott coffee since it opened in May 2016. While its closure is well beyond their control, Stones Throw’s owners – brother-and-sister team Cameron Chartres and Melanie Windsor – are embracing the forced change and are well underway with Stones Throw 2.0 in … wait for it … Currumbin! The former home of Neighbourhood Espresso on Station Street (just near the RSL) is currently undergoing a major overhaul and will reopen as Stones Throw in just a few weeks time.

We’re told to expect a similar vibe and offering experienced at the personality-packed Burleigh Heads cafe, though there will be a few tweaks and changes. While coffee (yes, Fonzie Abbott will still be pouring) and an always-evolving breakfast menu will be the main drivers, there will also be a stronger focus on lunches and early-afternoon trade, and there are plans to eventually launch into nights. The new Stones Throw Currumbin site, which incorporates a leafy alfresco-dining area (ideal for brunching in the sun) is set to open to the public on August 13. After that, the Burleigh site will continue to operate with coffee and takeaway food only until the doors officially close in September.

Stay tuned – we’ll give you a peek inside the all new Stones Throw 2.0 in a few weeks!
