Heart of The Local
An Assortment of Flavour
Nestled behind a Poinciana tree in the Burleigh Heads village, at the top of James Street sits the Burleigh Baker Cafe. With a passion for crafting artisan sourdough breads and brewing excellent Handsome
Brand Coffee, the cafe menu is based around the bread, with dishes that are freshly made and sourced from the best ingredients.
Our customers may be in swimmers, finishing a long bike ride, carrying their surfboard to the beach, heading to work, school or arriving from across the country. Regardless of where they're from, they come to buy a fresh loaf, roll, pastry or cake; drink good coffee, have breakfast and lunch or chat in the Burleigh village.
In our modern world, it is impossible not to be impacted by nutritional considerations around food. The baker uses the words 'food integrity' to convey what he feels is the single most important issue facing our health and well-being. It is the opposite of 'Global' or 'Fast', rather 'Local and Slow’; ‘whole food ‘not ‘processed or refined’. Use high quality natural ingredients. Do not use commercial yeast, bread improvers, preservatives, margarine or industrial fats. Eat “fermented carbohydrates” especially fermented grains. This becomes the mantra for those who value great tasting, nutritious food and who understand the importance of digestibility and a healthy GUT. We don’t push just organic, rather we practice ‘Food Integrity’ in the ingredients we buy, in what we make and what we sell. The ‘Face of the Baker ‘ is our symbol for knowing who makes the bread that your family eats every day.
Stop by our Cafes where you can select from our range of fresh sourdough bread, as well as try our delicious meals, coffee and cake range. The warm and friendly staff will assist you with their personal and knowledgeable service.
