Southport has a long history, evidenced by the historical buildings on the Southport Heritage Walk.
Beside the Town Hall and former Ambulance Station in Nerang Street, the former Post Office building, rejuvenated by Ben Howe and partners, is shared between Study Gold Coast and Mr PP’s Deli & Rooftop. The venue is named after Mr Philip Palmer Agnew (AKA Mr PP), Southport’s first postmaster from 1883 to 1886.
Today Mr PP’s is a welcome retreat for Southport locals who relish an escape to the sunshine of this upstairs bar and eatery. Serving Italian-style casual fare, Chef Julie Rodgers gives us her version of the classic Italian dish Conchiglioni, shell-shaped pasta shells, stuffed with a cheesy ricotta and spinach mixture, served with a romesco sauce. This dish makes a perfect winter meal.
Mr PP’s, 43 Nerang St, Southport QLD 4215 Ph: 07 5634 9587
