The brunch scene on the Coast has been due for a change, for a while now. Yes, everyone loves a good smashed avo on sourdough or an aesthetically pleasing acai bowl, but sometimes you just want something a little, well, different.
Enter La Finca, a brand spanking new joint that has come to answer all of our brunch related prayers.
Tucked away like a hidden gem in Mooloolaba’s new The Wharf precinct, La Finca brings a whole lot more than just delicious food to the table. La Finca, which in Spanish means ‘The Farm’, is the latest passion project of Daniel Mejia, the genius behind the Columbian Coffee Co. on Brisbane Rd in Mooloolaba. Using only the best quality fair trade coffee sourced from Columbian farms, La Finca ensures that all the money from their coffees goes straight to the farmers and their families.
The best part about La Finca’s all day breakfast, brunch and lunch menu is that it varies to accommodate seasonal changes and local produce growers, so you can expect new and exciting menu additions with every visit. Oh, and be sure to check out the specials board, because you might just pick up a one-off breakfast option that will blow your mind (chai pancakes with banana and maple syrup, anyone?).
Although it’s only brand spanking new, La Finca is already receiving rave reviews from impressed locals. We know one thing for sure, Columbian coffee and cuisine has just moved to the very top of our must devour list and it’s all thanks to the folks over at La Finca.
