The Pastry Lab
If the name wasn’t enough of a giveaway, The Pastry Lab has the best variety of pastries on the S.C. From custard-filled croissants and savoury tarts, to fun desserts like a cinnamon cruffin (a croissant-muffin mashup), the artisanal patisserie and espresso bar has it all. After one bite of their delicious, sweet or savoury treat, you’ll be counting down the days until you’re back. Beautiful views, delish bites, and good coffee – what more could you want from your morning?
One Block Back
Did someone say all day brunch? One Block Back in Moffat Beach has an impressive seasonally-inspired menu of delectable eats like scrambled eggs, buttermilk pancakes, and brekky wraps. They also have a variety of tasty lunch options such as nasi goreng, bao buns, and burgers. One Block Back is also fully licensed so you can enjoy a cheeky cocktail, wine, or beer at your next brunch date, too.
The Milk Bar Coffee Co.
Situated near the esplanade in Maroochydore is where you’ll find The Milk Bar Coffee Co. Enjoy menu items like smashed avocado on organic sourdough, pistachio and honey granola, and brekky rolls. However, if you’re after something a bit more substantial, we’d recommend tucking into one of their famous toasties. Choose from classic smoked ham and vintage cheddar, black truffle, and roast mushroom, and pulled pork and cheddar. The icing on the cake? The cute fit out and friendly service.
Noosaville, Noosa Junction
It wouldn’t be a trip to Noosa without a visit to VanillaFood, the coastal town’s number one organic café. Enjoy a variety of delicious, wholesome eats like breakfast gnocchi, tofu scrambled eggs, breakfast bruschetta, and buckwheat waffles. There’s also a variety of housemade cakes and salads available at the counter, as well as refreshing and rejuvenating smoothies and bowls (the Reishi Espresso smoothie sounds divine!). The VanillaFood team uses organic and locally-sourced produce, so you can only expect the best of the best.
Larder and Baked
If menu items like voodoo bacon with onion marmalade and cheddar, or an omelette in a crusty baguette excites you, a visit to Larder and Baked will not disappoint. This little gem located in the heart of trendy Noosa Junction prides itself on offering nutritious, healthy food and exceptional coffee, in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Craving something sweet? Larder and Baked also sell an assortment of delicious, homemade pastries and cakes, which are baked fresh in-house every morning.
Jungle & Co
Whether you’re vegan, paleo, ketogenic, or just enjoy eating healthy food, you’ll be sure to find something you love at Jungle & Co, Australia’s first gut health bar. From collagen boosting smoothies and cold pressed juices, to toast pairings that look too pretty to eat, there’s a variety of tasty menu items to choose from. Prefer a salty breakfast? We’d recommend ordering their signature avo toast, which is made up of grilled halloumi, smashed avo, vegan basil pesto, cherry tomatoes, and chia seeds on gut-healthy bread.
There’s a good chance you’ve devoured a delish dinner at Bistro C, but have you tried their brunch menu? Opening at 11am, enjoy a late brekky at one of the most picturesque restaurants on the Sunny Coast. Overlooking Noosa’s Main Beach, dig into an enviable menu of tasty eats like cauliflower fritters, caprese salad, and ciabatta. Finish off with a chocolate mint espresso, salted caramel colada, or a Toblerone cocktail – it’s brunch after all!
Love a fresh and light acai bowl, but also don’t mind biting into a greasy brekky burrito every now and then? Say hello to your new favourite breakfast spot, Decisions Café. The café splits its menu between ‘superfood’ and ‘superjunk’ options. Choose between healthy eats like smashed avo and superfood bowls or tuck into a chorizo burger or big brekky muffin. Not sure what you’re feeling? Why not go for a salad paired with one of their delicious shakes. it’s all about balance, right?
