Say Hello to the Casagrande family, owners of possibly the most badass surname and the most tasteful cafe in Palm Beach. Tim and Candice quite swiftly opened Highline Palm Beach in December 2018 but the dream of their own spot had been meandering in their minds long before. Tim previously worked with Marvell Street Coffee for several years on the Gold Coast and has a long history in specialty coffee whilst Candice has a background in marketing.. it reall is the perfect duo! Highline is a well designed welcoming space to enjoy Marvell Street's finest brews and if you're hungry high quality food made with clean, local produce.
Highline serves The Daily Grind espresso blend on a sexy Slayer steam, you'll always find a big fat pot of fresh filter coffee on the bar and healthily stocked retail shelf for you to take some home.
