Bam Bam Bakehouse, Gold Coast

Bam Bam Bakehouse


Firstly with a name like Bam Bam Bakehouse we knew it would be unique. And unique it is as it offers something a little different to most cafes on the Gold Coast.

Not only a great café, but with the added flair of a artisan style bakery with all baked goods and treats hand crafted and there is certainly no stone un turned here.

Bam Bam has grown dramatically since its 2015 opening, With local duo Ben and Ursula Watts who were the original founders of Paddock Bakery, which they sold in 2017. They have since grown the business and have added its sister venues Custard Canteen at Tallebudgera Creek and Cubby Bakehouse in the northern NSW town of Chinderah. At each venue, you’ll find epic handcrafted pastries, great coffee by Byron Bay’s Marvell Street and a menu of simple food, done well.

The Food

Bam bam are known for there croissants which are all homemade. It happened to be a savory one that took our eye, pairing one of these with karage chicken, slaw and kewpie mayo it was a stroke of genius. The croissant are that good that even the eggs benedict comes on one.

Sweetcorn fritters with chipotle and coriander crema or Indonesian egg nasi goreng are 2 that catch the eye as something different and definitely worth trying something new.

An organic Acai bowl with strawberry, blueberry, banana and house made granola for the healthy conscious.

And then there’s the bakery cookie dough slices, nutella cruffin, salted caramel éclair and not forgetting the croissants plain, almond or pain au chocolat. And many more to choose from.
