While us Aussies already know that we have the best coffee right here in Oz, it’s always nice to hear when the rest of the world acknowledges it.
While Blake Lively was here last year filming The Shallows, she spent time on the Gold Coast, and speaking to Smallzy’s Surgery in an interview which will air tonight on Nova, she revealed her favourite hang outs – and where she had the best coffee of her life.
"Most of my down time was spent at this amazing restaurant called Social [Eating House] which is like a fancy, treat yourself, night out restaurant, that was amazing, that’s right on Broadbeach," she said.
When asked if she enjoyed our coffee while she was here, the answer was a resounding, 'Yes!'.
"I found that coffee at No Name Lane to be the best coffee I’ve ever had in my life, I have to say it, on record," she declared.
And what's the Gossip Girl star's brew of choice you ask?
"The cappuccinos were amazing but the cold brew oh my gosh! I would ask them for vats of it and they would like drip it for 8 hours over night and then they have a special milk called 'capital milk' it’s made just for cappuccinos. We don’t have that in the states."
And for sweet treats, Blake found a place called Skull and Bones who do a mean cronut sundae.
"They make a croissant donut, a cronut, but like an ice cream sandwich cronut… an ice cream with a coffee, come on."
