10 Cafes Open For Your Morning Fix This Anzac Day

By Caity Stone - 24 Apr 2018


So you’ve been up before the sun, paid tribute to those who’ve fought and continue to serve for the country, and now… well now, you’re dying with dry mouth for a cup of joe.

But no ordinary coffee is going to brush away the cobwebs that come with a 4.30am wakeup call, neither is a mediocre breakfast, so we’ve rounded up ten of the best caffeine pushin’, food-lovin’ cafes that are open this Anzac Day on the Sunshine Coast. 


Winne is a little wonderland tucked away in the tiny suburb of Woombye. Now, if you haven't been here yet, you've probably committed a crime against the coffee gods. In all seriousness, this gem is a place that not only has the best vibes, loveliest people but did we mention that smooth coffee and those delicious noms? They are open untill 11:30, peeps! 


Fit For A King

Let us just say, Fit For a King Coffee, lives up to its name baby, and then some. This brand spanking new gourmet coffee bar is like no other in Caloundra. Proudly serving up its caffeinated goodness from St Ali beans in good ol' Melbourne town. These guys really know how to make a decent drop of Joe. These guys have your coffee needs sorted!  

Mr.Z & Co.

These coffee and pastrie geniuses will be open from 7am and lucky us! Once you try one of the epic pastry creations from Mr.Z & Co. you'll be hooked. They construct the most stunning sweet treats that taste as good as they look, and once you’ve been here you’ll understand exactly what we're talking about. 

Rue Bourbon

The outlook from Rue Bourbon is like no other and is the perfect spot to experience an amazing brew with a view. Did we mention it's inside a SHIPPING CONTAINER?! We're loving this uber-cool concept and everything about this place. These guys are open as normal, yasss! 

Costa Noosa Espresso

Sunshine Beach institution, Costa Noosa Espresso, has the backs of the Northerners covered with their early morning start time and coffee-makin’ prowess. Don’t let the line turn you away, a smooth brew from here is worth the wait. Add a flaky croissant to your order, and you’ll be floatin’ way past cloud nine.



Decisions is opening from 6am for all your caffeinated needs, and who could forget the #superfood and #superjunk. Sit out front under the nautical awning, and get your smoothie bowl on. Or screw the diet and feast on a real eggs benny. Mmmm!

Urban Garden

Urban Garden knows that you don’t wanna be waiting until 7am for your first hit of caffeine. So, for Anzac Day, these guys will start serving coffee from 5am to 11am at both Urban Garden locations in Maroochydore and Nambour. Now that’s what we call a move for the people.

Little Boat Espresso 

Little Boat Espresso is open from 7am-12pm servin' up brekkie and coffee, yass! Little Boat Espresso’s menus are heaven on a plate—but can you imagine how much better it is when paired with a Vintage Black Co. coffee? Two words: so good! 


Project Espresso 

On the hunt for the best coffee in Maroochydore? We hear ya! There’s a few spots to choose from but one of our faves has gotta be Project Espresso. Open from 6am-11am with their full kitchen, coffee and juice bar! 

Rick's Artisan Pies & Sourdough

Open from 5am till 3pm, Rick's Artisan Pies & Sourdough is a delightful bakery serving up coffee and all our faves with a very special twist. Fancy a gourmet pie or specially baked sourdough? If you love treats like this, Ricks is most certainly the place for you.
