Nourishing By Sally
Sally supplies stores with raw desserts, slices and cakes Australia wide. We have watched Sally grow her small home business into now a commercial business that supplies many local and interstate businesses with the most delicious and incredible raw cakes.  She is such an inspiration as not only a woman but as a mother and a business woman, we love her.

Heven-Yah Gelato
This is a Gelato Shop recently opened on the coast by two young coast girls, Amy and Holly. They went from serving their delicious gelato from a cart at local markets to now owning a store.  Their gelato is mouthwatering and they continue to produce unique flavour combinations that so many locals love.

Nude Sisters Whole Food Kitchen
Another recently opened venture by another two young local Gold Coast girls, Bec and Georgia, is Nude Sisters Whole Food Kitchen.  They started off making gluten free, dairy free, vegan and refined sugar free desserts that has now turned into a cafe where they serve vegetarian and nutritious foods as well as their popular desserts.

Two Little Bakers
Two Little Bakers is run by mother-daughter team, Kris and Ashley Gleeson and they produce the most amazing cakes. They make the yummiest cakes and cupcakes on the coast, along with slices and cookies and so much more.  We love their work and they are both incredible business women.  Their business is growing stronger day after day, amazing to watch their progress.

Delicious by Sara
If you take one look at Sara’s cakes you will see why we love her work so much. Absolutely stunning work.  Her cakes are well sort after.  She runs a small dessert shop on Saturdays from her cake studio in Southport where you can pick up smaller creations of her masterpieces.  From wedding cakes to birthday cakes and more, a Delicious by Sara cake will make a huge impression on anyone at any event or occasion.

Coffee Sisters
A little hidden from the main stretch of the Gold Coast Highway in Broadbeach Waters, you will find this busy little café run by Kylie Jennings is making some of the best coffee and food on the coast.  The locals absolutely love Coffee Sisters, their juices are phenomenal as too are their housemate muffins.  A great spot to discover for breakfast, brunch or lunch.

Golosi Food Emporium
This is our go-to-spot when we want gourmet foods.  They have the best range of meats, cheeses, sauces, dressings, fresh pastas, cakes, flowers and more in this cute little store on James Street in Burleigh. Run by owner Selena, this store has everything for foodies like ourselves.  When we are wanting something a little different and a little extravagant for dinner, we head there to indulge.  Their custom made picnic hampers are incredible, highly recommended.

These fantastic women, Riki-Lee & Sharlene, were the original creators of the raw cakes trend on the Gold Coast. They then took the huge success of their cakes sold at market stalls into a cafe/shopfront and have never looked back.  They serve the freshest whole and nutritious treats that are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free and dairy free.  A huge hit on Instagram, these girls are doing so much good for the healthy eating scene on the Gold Coast.

Frigg Cafe
Crazy name but this little cafe in Southport has a heart of gold and that is mostly because of the amazing women who run it, led by Toula.  The food that comes out of the Frigg Kitchen is fresh, inviting and heartwarming homely food.  A family business that runs 7 days a week from 6am each morning, these ladies work hard and it shows because a lot of locals love them and so do we.
