If you're in the Gold Coast, Queensland then you need to get yourself up the superb (as in bend after bend) road to Lower Beechmont.
Close to Nerang (or Canungra if coming from that direction), you'll get to see fantastic scenery including views of Surfer's Paradise and the ocean or the Hinze Dam just below the mountain.
Back to the point of the title! Laurel Cottage is in the middle of Lower Beechmont and serves up fantastic food, coffee etc. and all at great prices. It must be reasonable because I eat there every weekend!
Check out www.laurelcottage.com.au and try it for yourself. Great grub, great roads and great weekends!
