Nestled in the heart of Budds Beach (only a 5 minute walk from the heart of Surfers Paradise) bumbles cafe is many things to many people. For residents of the Gold Coast, bumbles is the café where they religiously come each morning: grab the morning paper, nod to the barista signaling “the usual”, and plant themselves in their favorite seat amongst other regulars. Bumbles has become an extension of their own homes and kitchens. For other locals, it is where they come every weekend to meet a group of friends and have a catch-up while they tuck into their salmon benedict, side of hash browns & freshly squeezed juice. Others arrive by jetski on the beach and grab a take-away lunch to enjoy later.
During the week you will find the ‘blueroom’ filled with lawyers in their pinstriped suits holding meetings, book-club ladies lunching, and mid week celebrations of all shapes and sizes unfolding.
Bumbles cafe is many things to many people.
The cafe itself continues to evolve and capture peoples taste buds and imagination. Indeed, there is nowhere else like bumbles. In the beginning it consisted of 4 tables outside and the bench seat inside! Today it boasts indoor air conditioned seating for 60 guests and alfresco river-view tables for 40 more! The pavement has been extended to capitalize on the beautiful river view; the ‘picture room’ was put in during 2005; the ‘blue room’ and ‘the alley’ in 2006 and the lounge and dining rooms upgraded in 2007.
As bumbles continues to tempt all lovers of food and great coffee, an intimate dinner is now served on Thursday evenings. Bookings are essential and we would love for you and your friends to come join us!
