For a guy who is serious about his coffee, the dbl espresso was very smooth. Also very accommodating to my daughters with their think shakes.

Great coffee and food. Something that can be rare in surfers paradise. Use Bonsoy plus other brands. Toasted food good value Iced drinks just as good as their latte.

A great rest stop for coffee lovers like me to pick up coffee on the go. The coffee menu is small but sufficient (offers non dairy options as well). Staff friendly too.

This store was so cute. The definition of a hidden gem. Great overall service and such friendly staff. Although I haven't personally tried their food I can tell you that their coffee was outstanding and was served within a few minutes of ordering. Who knew...a basic latte could be so good?More

Always love finding a great coffee early in the morning + delicious food for the teens when they woke up. Great friendly service and always a fan of a hole in the wall.

Really cute coffee shop under the stairs in one of the malls. Food and coffee made us feel like we were home in Melbourne. Staff are super friendly. Very reasonably priced. Take away or sit down at a few tables.

A little hole-in-the-wall cafe with the best coffee we tasted during our trip. Staff were super friendly, service was really quick.

Every time I visit Surfers Paradise and I need my coffee boost I go there. Best coffee, treats and customer service. The owner has beautiful energy, he uplifts your day with a coffee, smile and meaningful chats. Keep supporting local!

We found this little cafe on the second day we stayed in Surfers Paradise. Despite only having a 4 day holiday booked, we went back to Stairwell for a total of 3 times because it was so god damn good. Not only is the coffee...excellent (and we are coffee snobs from Brisbane), but the jaffles are tasty, freshly made, warm, comforting and to die for. Each sandwich is served with a side of potato crisps and a pickle, which is just an wonderful little touch to the dish. Each jaffle is accompanied with a specially chosen sauce on the side to enhance the flavour, and the balance of meat to bread and filling ratio is spot on. Secret menu tip - ask for the “Brother James”. It will blow you away.More

Just a little shop tucked away behind the stairs and down a little. We were recommended to go here from another coffee shop, after I asked them for almond milk Haha. Stairwell Coffee has every milk you can think of and normal cows milk. The...almond cappuccino was smooth and easy to drink; even without sugar! I will be seeking out this coffee shop daily! Thank you for lovely coffees!!More

Bonsoy and milk lab milk non dairy alternatives available. Coffee was great - good body and strength, not bitter, served nice and hot. Small well thought out selection of food - jaffles, bagels, crossaints, banana bread, danishes. We had some banana bread - crisped on...the outside, moist on the inside. Hit the spot! Located in a shopping alley way just past the Hilton, under the stairwell. Well worth seeking out!More
