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 9 restaurants to grab epic takeaway on the Sunshine Coast right now.
Don’t feel like cooking tonight? The Dock has you covered with their Heat & Eat meals that’ll blow your taste buds away (in a good way, of course). House-smoked meats served with creamy slaw, baked potato, buttered corn and southern sauces? Um, yes please.
Vista At Headland
Mill St. Kitchen And Pantry
If you haven’t been to Mill St. Kitchen & Pantry yet, you’re missing out. Besides fresh produce and a killer dine-in menu, they also have chef prepared meals delivered directly to your door. How good is that?
Renowned among foodie circles across the state (hell, even the country), Embassy XO needs no introduction, but their takeaway menu might. Grab a date night pack for a date night in or splurge for a family pack if you’re a bit over cooking (we know we are.)
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 open. With outdoor picnics now permitted, we couldn’t think of anything more fitting than a takeaway spread of moreish burgers and fries laid out on a rug somewhere with a view. Check out their menu here.
Get down and dirty this weekend, with fall-apart brisket, philly cheese steak sangas, corn bread, waffle fries and so much more from Dirty Moes epic takeaway menu. If you’re eating-in on a budget, try their Ultimate Box for $40—packed with two burgers, chilli cheese fries and spicy by salty dry rub wings, it’s enough to feed two on a not-so-dainty date night. Check out their menu here.
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.
Three Restaurant Bar And Grill
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.
Looking for some of the best takeaway in Noosa? Italian restaurant Bombetta is now open for takeaway; cooking up pastas, pizza and the most delicious dessserts—hello, nutella pizza! These guys are also throwing in free delivery between Noosaville and Sunrise Beach for orders over $50. View their menu here.
Feast and then cosy up on the couch and hit the best movies on Netflix right now.
