About The Yard Cafe

With shabby chic furniture, hanging lamps and exposed concrete, the Gold Coast’s The Yard Café is a trendy Mermaid Beach hotspot, providing diners with a ‘from paddock & patch to plate & bowl’ dining experience. Go Middle Eastern with the Baghdad eggs with potato flatbread, hummus, dukkah, olives and preserved lemon for breakfast, sink your teeth into the 100% monster wagyu burger topped with cheese, bacon, slaw, tomato sauce and pickle, or share a platter like the seafood board, a selection of smoked and cured fish, cuca tinned seafood, seafood rillettes, fresh crustaceans and sauces. A haven for foodies with a penchant for clean eating, The Yard Café on Lavarack Road can get busy. To avoid missing out booking your table in advance is recommended!

Great service and delicious food. Fantastic atmosphere. So glad we booked as this is obviously a popular spot as it was near full by the time we had finished.

Great service. Amazing food and a perfect little, sheltered outdoor area and slide for the kids. We will most definitely be back and bring our family!
