St Helens Owner Jess
Jess creates dishes which are inspired by locally sourced ingredients in close relationships with suppliers.
She, along with her husband Brendan created St. Helens Coolangatta Bar and Grill after seeing the location directly across from the famous Kirra Beach. They immediately embarked on setting up a new local beachside venue. Serving a high quality of food and drinks whilst keeping affordability in mind.
Jess is from Seattle where, as a chef, service and food quality dictate success. She has created a rare intersection between upscale American bar food and Australian beachside culture. A venue where guests can sit back and lap up the glorious scenery. Enjoying themselves with an ice-cold drink or cocktail and sitting just across the road from the beautiful Roughton Park.
