You’ll be livin’ in the 70s with a visit to the Burleigh Pavilion’s latest offering, The Van – a bakery operating from a repurposed Viscount caravan.
Although the Burleigh Heads location is far from the heaving crowds it once boasted, locals can line up (at an acceptable safe distance) at this iconic beachside venue for a variety of delicious baked goods, Açai bowls, smoothies, and for lunch, fish and chips, burgers and milkshakes.
The new beachside treat pitstop features a daily arrangement of sweets and savoury goods ready to go, all made on site by Burleigh Pavilion’s head chef Guillaume Zika and his team. By morning, you can find loaves of hot-from-the-oven sourdough bread (baked daily using sustainable, unbleached flour), savoury focaccia, banana bread, plain and chocolate croissants and handmade cinnamon, custard, and jam doughnuts.
For the lunch time crowd, The Van serve up a menu of traditional beach eats – beer-battered or grilled fish and chips, crispy potato scallops, burgers, calamari, and thick-cut fries. Fresh juices and milkshakes add to the 70s nostalgic vibe.
The Van is parked at the front of The Burleigh Pavilion from 6am daily, and will be a permanent fixture at the beachfront hang, not just a coronavirus ring in!
