About
Welcome to Custard Canteen! You’ll find us at the front of the Recreation Centre at the magical Tallebudgera Creek on the Gold Coast. Pastel de nata - aka Portuguese custard tarts – is what we’re all about. Our magnificent pastry team laminates fresh puff pastry on-site daily for these little delights – buttery, flaky cocoons with a warm belly full of sweet yolk custard! We batch them every 30 minutes across the day so you can enjoy them at their best! We also serve Marvell Street coffee and dish up delicious eats from our all-day brunch menu, alongside hot cookies, muffins and mouth-watering pastries.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The staff at Custard Canteen provided us with next level service when I wanted to order the bake at home cookies for a birthday gift. They didn't have the flavour we wanted so organised to have them delivered from Cubby, over the border (which is currently closed for Covid) to ensure we were able to get the ones we wanted. Would highly recommend Custard Canteen to anyone seeking delicious food and amazing service!

Quick service, lovely trees and comfortable chairs, we had 2 ham cheese croissants, canola fruit, black tea and latte, $41, we had our dog and they look care with water. The food was nice, probably one croissant was enough, they were large and very crispy and fresh. What makes this place very nice is the shade from the trees and plentiful seating. We rode the bikes and bike racks are available.it’s a busy car parking area. #miike2000

Went to try the famous Portuguese Tarts however they had none. Raspberry and lemon curd muffin was still slightly warm and so yummy. Coffee took a long time ( they did warn a 20 minute wait) and was Ok. Lovely setting.

Hey mate, I'm so sorry to hear that you missed out on our delicious Portuguese tarts - they are the best!! Please always ask our friendly staff if there will be more coming out as we batch these every 20 minutes all day so usually they are only a few minutes away! How good are the muffins, stoked to hear you got to try and enjoy one of those! Thanks again for taking the time to leave us your review, we appreciate it. See you by the creek soon for a Portuguese tart :) Cheers the custard team

This cafe came highly recommended from friends and the staff were certainly helpful and courteous. The poor rating is because the garden seating is visited by lots of seagulls and pigeons and it was impossible to find table and seats without bird poop over them. We had to put serviettes down to give the impression of a clean table. not our idea of an environment conducive to a nice lunch. I had the bolognaise sausage roll which I found greasy. The coffee was good. I wish i had better things to say.

$7.50 for a brownie really is a big rich and to then pass on your bank fees to the customer for paying with credit card as well really takes the sweetness out of your food. C’mon guys, get real, you’re not paying rent on the main strip of Paris or Sydney CBD. You’d prices are rude and you’re getting ahead of yourselves and this only puts customers off from returning

Been here a few times, they have the freshest croissants you can get them plain or with ham and cheese. I got both because I am a guts and had an iced latte, Mum had a coffee and one croissant, we bought our dog and he had a bit of everything. Weekend breakfasts are packed so get there early.

What a perfect spot on the Gold Coast 🌞 for fresh and delicious custard tarts (pumped out of the oven every 30 min). And I wouldn’t suggest that the Goldie is known for coffee exactly but the coffee here? Seriously good. The outside seating at Custard Canteen is really nice and roomy - not close to other patrons, or you can do what we did and take our treats and coffees to go the sit at one of the picnic tables by Tallebudgera Creek - the 2 yo could throw himself at the sand and the water’s edge while we happily sipped and snacked. One of the highlights of our January week on the Gold Coast!

With CoVid it’s not been possible to return to Portugal to enjoy the beautiful custard tarts but Custards offerings are nearly as good as those at Belem. Great way to dream enjoying a warm tart with coffee sitting at a shady table. Coffee is good and served at perfect temperature. Service is invariably friendly and efficient.

Very pleasantly surprised. Great spot, sitting under the trees. The service was very efficient and super friendly. The sausage roll was the best i thinki have ever had! The other food we ordered was excellent- fresh, tasty and delivered to our table very promptly. We will definitely be heading back again.

I made my purchase & sat at the seats provided however as soon as I sat down the timber seat fell apart as the timber had rotted & I went flying backwards with my legs in the air. I approached staff to advise them however the response I received was very non caring & that it was an inconvenience. The female staff I spoke to said “We try & check them each morning....” (I have tried uploading a picture however it was big)

Portuguese tarts area n absolute must have! I come all the time for them.great location next to the creek to have some delicious treats. Coffee is gross though. Everytime I get an iced latte it’s over priced and bitter. Go for a fresh Oj.

This was a perfect spot for lunch before a swim. The food was so fresh, fish and chips was perfectly cooked. The servings were large and great value for money! The customer service here was great, adding to a friendly, welcoming vibe. Lots of room and available spots even on a busy weekend.

Booked table for 6 to be seated in a shaded area, the table they chose was perfect. Weekends get busy so booking essential. Dog friendly. Excellent service and can get take away as well. Muffins excellent coffee good. Parking available if your lucky to get a spot, as this has become a very popular venue. Will be back.

We visited this little bakery because it appeared on my Instagram feed. I'm so glad that we went out of our way to visit. We had already eaten lunch and so we just ordered the tarts and coffee. The tarts are amongst the best we've tasted outside Portugal and the coffee is terrific!!
