Another Friday, another two days off are just around the corner.
And we couldn’t be more pumped! Because on Saturdays and Sundays, we base our existence solely around where we’re going to eat or drink.
We know, it’s a tough life. So just in case you’re the same, we’ve rounded up five awesome Sunshine Coast cafes and restaurants that are worthy of your time, cash and food comas this weekend. Let the good times roll!
These guys have only just thrown open their doors, but if you’ve been hanging for a good Mexican feed for what feels like forever, make a beeline to Paradise Arcade stat. Serving up delish tacos—we’re in a deep kind of love with the spicy pork option—tostadas, moreish popcorn chicken and finger-lickin’ loaded fries, the best bit is that you can wash it down with a few too many frosty margaritas on tap. Hola!
CK Coffee Bar & Wholefoods
Breakfast bosses will no doubt be familiar with CK, but when was the last time you visited? Serving up some of the best breakfasts in Mooloolaba, you’ll feel healthy just reading the menu at this wholefood cafe. We’ve said it before but we’ll say it again, the CK Vege Stack is all kinds of amazing. A tower of roasted pumpkin, sautéed mushies, halloumi, rocket, housemade dukkah, guacamole and a balsamic glaze, it gets even better when you add in a couple of poachies too.
Coco Loco Club
If you lurk around Moffat Beach, you’ll know Coco Loco Club. But what you might not know is that these guys recently renovated their digs to give you more space to stick around and dine-in. They’ve also upped the ante with gorgeous wooden bowls for their ridic acai creations, plus they now serve that golden brown liquid we know as coffee from one of our fave local roasters, Vintage Black Co. Praise the caffeine gods.
Peregian Beach Hotel
Two words: garlic pizza. It’s pretty much all we can think about when Peregian Beach Hotel comes up. Their menu is super accommodating with something for everyone, but it’s their sourdough pizza bases that we get stuck on—every.single.time. Round up your mates for an afternoon beer (you’ll find some local faves, like Your Mates on tap), perch under the pandanus palms, watch the world go by…then order a pizza. Oh, and you won’t want to share.
If the only thing turning you off street food is a gutter stoop or having to stand while you’re gobbling, Jimmy Fox offers street food, sitting down. Ummm…can we get hell yeah? Open for brekky and lunch, it’s cheap, cheerful and damn tasty, plus it’s a stone’s throw from Noosa River which doesn’t hurt either.
