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!

Nice food and awesome undercover outdoor area so you can sit outside even when it is raining. Staff is very friendly and fast. The coffee was great and the food portions perfect.

I found the metal chairs inside not overly comfortable, otherwise the general dining experience and the coffee was great and I would definitely return. Like the quirkiness

Food was nice coffee also but first cup was only warm and I had asked for extra hot. We sat outside roomy, tables not too close together

The venue is great and the staff are lovely. But the meals were super over priced, and although the food was good quality it was badly put together and the meal sizes were tiny.
