One of the many things we’re incredibly proud of here on the Sunshine Coast is our drool-worthy food scene bursting with award-winning eateries and local gems. But with COVID-19 seeing more and more people self-isolating, the hospitality industry has been hit with empty tables and cancelled bookings. And while we want everyone to stay safe, we also want our foodie friends to know we’re here to support them as best we can.
So, how can you do that? Many of our favourite restaurants are thinking outside of the box, offering takeaway and delivery options so you can enjoy their delicious eats from the comfort of your couch—that’s a silver lining, if you ask us.
We’ll keep rotating this list, so keep checking back often to see how you can throw your support behind these Sunshine Coast businesses. And, if we’re missing your fave, let us know!
Here are 10 restaurants to grab epic takeaway on the Sunshine Coast right now.
Offering takeaway and delivery, Spice Bar is without a doubt one of the Sunshine Coast’s best restaurants and is currently open on Friday and Saturday nights only.

You can view everything that’s on offer, here.
Noosa and Maroochydore
If you’re looking to smash one of the best burgers on the Sunshine Coast, Betty’s Burgers has you sorted with both their Noosa and Sunshine Plaza stores still open.

The team at Harry’s On Buderim are cooking up a range of very special dishes, each week from Thursday to Saturday from 5pm to 7pm. What can you expect? Well, you’ll be choosing between confit duck leg with a plum relish, braised red cabbage, spiced roast pumpkin and duck jus, marinated lamb rump with soft polenta, macadamia nut pesto and ratatouille, or a melt-in-your-mouth sirloin steak with roasted carrots and bourguignon sauce.

Whilst we still believe there’s nothing like dining at a restaurant in person, we get the need to hibernate right now. So we’re loving that Rock Salt are offering pick-up on their dine-in menu. You might want to get out of your trackies for this meal though, because even if it is devoured on your lounge room floor, these dishes are next-level good.
Taking a few tables out of their restaurant means that if you want to dine at Pitchfork, you can now practice physical-distancing whilst you devour incredible dishes. But, if you still like the idea of dinner at home, the team here are now doing their entire menu takeaway. Just check out their menu here and call up to order.

Caloundra favourite Three Restaurant Bar and Grill are still open but have taken their menu online for anyone who wants to order takeaway or delivery. Whilst they’re not currently charging for delivery, there is a minimum spend of $30, and we totally suggest tipping the driver to say ‘thank you’ if you can afford it. Find their menu here.
