We just enjoyed a little lunchtime visit to Three Figs which is located in The EcoVillage out Currumbin Valley. Not far out, just past the Duck Pond. I had no idea this little spot existed, there’s not much signage on Currumbin Creek Road to inform a passerby. I heard about it via Good Food Gold Coast and thought we’d give it a try.
It was definitely worth getting away from the hustle and bustle to sit by a fish pond, take in the fresh air and enjoy the scenery. There was a basic range of food, a nice array of homemade sweet treats and an amazing range of loose leaf teas served by the pot.
After coffee and lunch, we went back for sweets and spotted a friend enjoying a pot of tea and reading a gardening magazine from the varied range of books & magazines for your perusal. She was trying the Arctic Fire tea, a blend of black tea with cornflowers and an amazing fruit and cool mint flavour. We chose to join her for tea and even though the decision was difficult I picked Apple & Cinnamon and we were all surprised by its sweet subtlety.
We talked about raising bees, the Indian principle that a house should be built out of nothing a woman can not carry and my next goldtoast event until the pot was empty.
