There’s not much in life better than a breakfast fritter.
One—it’s fried. And anything that’s fried is good. No debate. Two—it’s pretty versatile. Chuck on a poached egg, some spicy relish, a few slices of smoked salmon if you’re feeling decadent. Three—it’s packed with enough veggies to power you through to lunch.
So in honour of this cafe staple, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite breakfast fritters on the Sunshine Coast for you to check out.
Cock And Hen
Tucked away in Twin Waters, Cock And Hen dishes up smoky corn fritters with black bean and haloumi. If you’re not of the veggie persuasion add a couple of rashers of bacon. But it’s only on the brunch menu until 11.30am, so get moving!
Sirocco, overlooking the river at Noosaville, has given the classic Aussie corn fritter a Mediterranean twist. They serve it with morcilla sausage (don’t ask us what morcilla is, just eat it) and tomato chilli jam for a spicy kick to your morning.
Milk Bar Coffee Co
For a bit of a different twist on an oldie but a goodie , Milk Bar Coffee Co has whipped up a cabbage fritter with miso glazed baby carrots, pickled fennel, fried egg and chilli mayo. This is NOT business as usual.
Thomas Corner Eatery
Thomas Corner’s luxe fritters come with locally-smoked salmon, dill and caper labne, and are just screaming out for a glass of champagne to accompany them. Who are we to disagree with the fritters? #bringonthechampers
It’s hard to pick just one breakfast spot in Buderim, but Backstreet Cafe is one of our trusty go-to eateries. We love the sweetcorn fritters with Persian feta, poached egg and dukkah.
Canteen Kitchen & Bar
If you love jalapenos as much as we do, head to Canteen for their corn, cheese and jalapeno fritters with lime and avo. Just make sure you save some space for the cakes!
Hands down one of the best breakfast spots on the Sunshine Coast, Harvest has a stack of paleo and pastry-based options. If you kind of want to straddle the gap between healthy and excessive, the green pea, feta and mint fritters are fab. They come with Harvest’s own chilli jam (which you can take home with you!) and the view is just perfect.
Next time you’re in Eumundi, head to Bohemian Bungalow. Because what millennial worth their Himalayan pink salt needs to EVER buy property when you can fill up on smashed avo and corn fritters this amazing?!
