Choc Mint Slice & Velvety Cappuccino - One of the best on Gold Coast

Menu is limited but very well designed

I have been buying my fruits and vegetables at Yuens at Mermaid Waters for years. The early years were great produce at very attractive prices, especially Asian vegetables which were very hard to find on the coast. A couple of years ago, after extensive renovations, Yuens II was born. More up market but thankfully the quality remained. To my surprise a couple of weeks ago, Yuens Coffee & Cafe sprang to life at the front of the shop. I had to try their coffee and pastries for today's 'snapshot'. Coffees were near perfect, nice variety of sweet things and pastries and to my surprise, one of my all time fav food, Vietnamese Pork Rolls are made fresh, another first for the coast (verdict coming soon). The quick verdict - 'MUST VISIT'. Jenny Yuen, from the family's second generation has added style to the 'fruit & veg' shop and now the cafe as well.

Macaroons galore at Yuens

Banana, Chocolate & Raspberry

Coffee on the Gold Coast has been average to very bad, expensive espresso machines from Italy done't make great coffee alone. Luckily in recent years, people who are passionate about coffee have emerged and Jenny and barista Rafael at Yuens is the latest. Jenny Yuen, from the family's second generation has added style to the 'fruit & veg' shop and I am sure is the creator of the cafe. More on Jenny and Yuens when we post a full Footoblog soon. If you are in the central Gold Coast area, you must get to Yuens Cafe - actually if you are on the coast, get yourself there for one of the coast's best coffee cafe at very reasonable prices....

Owner & operator Jenny Yuen is the 'passion' behind this cafe

The Yuen's family have been operating the Fruit & Veg store for many years.

Nice variety of pasties, cakes & snacks.

Please try Jenny's Vietnamese Pork Roll - made to order

Decor is 'rustic, relaxed & cosy'.

Great cooked breakfast is provided by Rosso's Deli next door.

The team is young & vibrant & makes one of the best coffee in town.

But could be a little more friendly.

Barista Raphael is one of the best on the Gold Coast

A 'Must Visit' for Yuen's cafe for their great coffees.
