When we shared the news that this new Maroochydore restaurant and bar was open for business, you lot nearly broke the site. There was a whole lot of love flying from every direction, and rightly so—this place is incredible. If you haven’t had the chance to drop in for dinner or even just an after-work cocktail, make a visit to Orléans a priority this weekend. And to save yourself flailing in a pool of tears, book a seat, stat.
Where: 1/24 Duporth Avenue, Maroochydore
After months of grit, the folk steering the handlebars of Moto, Kristy Weller and Dave Cruces, have unveiled one of the most innovative spaces we’ve seen on the Sunshine Coast in a long time. This motorcycle showroom slash café slash bar only threw open its doors last week, but already has garnered quite the following. And with its epic offerings, including more-ish jaffles and smooth but strong Clandestino coffee, it’s not hard to see why. Is it too early to say we’re rating Moto as one of our fave five openings of 2016?
Where: 66 Noosa Drive, Noosa Junction
Before you Coolum folk throw your hands in the air and cry “this joint ain’t so new anymore”, this shout out is for the benefit of Metropolist’s southern readers. If you don’t venture up to Coolum Beach on the reg, you may not know about Canteen Kitchen & Bar, a stellar recent addition to the town’s restaurant line-up. With its breezy outlook over the beach, a sleek interior, and sunny terraced seating, come for the cocktails and stay for the fresh seafood, slow and low lamb shank, epic house nachos, and fanciful desserts. Date night, anyone?
Where: 1748 David Low Way, Coolum Beach
