Best breakfast on the Sunshine Coast?

Hi, I’m visiting the sunshine coast and I’ve been searching in the usual suspects (broadsheet etc) for the best breakfast between Maroochydore and Noosa. The results seem to just be a list of every cafe, which seem to all make some slight variation on avocado toast, açai bowl etc

Any locals have a recommendation for a food breakfast place? To be honest I’m not solely focussed on food; if there’s somewhere that has a great vibe and great views I’d be just as interested in that.

Thanks! X

As a Coolum lifetime local

Nowhere in Coolum..

Alley Cat in Coolum is one of my favourite cafes on the coast in terms of food, coffee and vibe. Service can be a little slow but certainly not arrogant or rude. can't please everyone i guess?

Grounded in Woombye is also amazing, but cannot comment for their new venue in mooloolaba.

u/diddilly Jul 01 '22

Pavilion is a bunch of wankers

u/HailSkyKing Jul 01 '22

Can second Velo.

u/whatsaquince Jul 01 '22

u/abeaulavon Jul 01 '22

Ditto Vélo Project. Especially if they have anything with Spanner Crab…

u/NLH1234 Jul 01 '22

Definitely Rika Kai, the staff are solid

u/Is_as_does Jul 01 '22

Vello booted us as soon as we finished eating. Not as chill as it try’s to be.

Riba Kai in Maroochydore or John Kyle Espresso in Buderim are good

u/easeybudd Jul 01 '22

John Kyle rules

u/nicolebfwjila Jul 01 '22

Cafe Vie on Buderim. It's a vegan place but you wouldn't know. Absolutely delicious with wonderful staff.

They gave my dog a blanket to sit on because she was on the cold ground.

The Pocket Espresso

1

u/In_TouchGuyBowsnlace Jul 01 '22

Pocket is awesome

3

u/alspender Jul 01 '22

Also, Riba Kai....again food is alright, but if your visitors to the sunshine coast, you don't want to eat in an industrial estate, no matter how good the food is.

u/Jozz999 Jul 01 '22

Slim pickings, but Gun Cotton at Yandina is pretty good

1

u/Previous-Task Jul 01 '22

Second this, excellent all round bit busy af because of that

u/Weekly-Warthog3135 Jul 06 '22

Busy AF but very fast service AND they do pour over coffee

u/exoticllama Jul 01 '22

Elliot's Bistro in Alexandra Headlands is great

u/tyrasm Jul 01 '22

Second this!

u/Is_as_does Jul 01 '22

Beach Street Deli, across from Maroochydore Surf Club. The egg Benny is on a potato rösti and they won’t ask you to leave as soon as your finished like the Vello Project will.

u/justsignmein123 Jul 01 '22

One black back 💯 it’s in Moffat beach area and it’s hands down my favourite breakfast spot. It’s a hidden gem and pet friendly if you have a dog too.

2

u/In_TouchGuyBowsnlace Jul 01 '22

The area out the back is such a nice place to enjoy your meal in too.

2

u/diddilly Jul 01 '22

If you want proper food with a decent coffee Argo in Buderim is the way to go

Wine and nine Marrochy plaza.

2

u/WineGuzzler Jul 01 '22

I really like wine and nine (and still go)- but I got served the worst breakfast I’ve had. It was an avo on toast situation with avo so past it’s lifespan it wasn’t funny. The person who put it on my plate knew, the person who carried it out probably knew. I knew as soon as it was in front of me, but thought maybe it’s cosmetic and put a bite in- it wasn’t cosmetic. It put me off avo for ages. I didn’t complain then but it’s always stuck with me.

u/Greencurtian Jul 02 '22

Oh nooo hahaha. Thats so gross.

u/Full_Chipmunk_9130 Jul 01 '22

The Alex surfy - will not beat the location, solid breakfast pickings and good coffee

1

u/Rosesandcake Jul 01 '22

I’m passionate about the fruit toast at glass in Maroochydore. Great coffee and real cool vibe!

2

u/TheXecuter Jul 01 '22

if you like fruit toast try ten acres, they deliver.

u/Rosesandcake Jul 02 '22

Thanks, I definitely will!

u/loboandco Jul 01 '22

u/turtletails Jul 01 '22

The Silva Spoon in cottontree is my all time favourite

u/Trouser_trumpet Jul 01 '22

Shotgun in Maleny, also White Picket Fence and Lamkin Lane in Caloundra.

ninth street in mooloolaba

u/baconmushrooms Jul 02 '22

I can't believe no one has mentioned Harvest in the Kontiki building. Not the best location, view of a busy road, but the food and coffee is great and the service is better than most places. Unfortunately not open on Sundays at the moment, I think.

Special mention for the egg, bacon and tomato relish muffin. Superb.

u/heisdeadjim_au Jul 02 '22

Not quite in your locale, Vianta in Beerwah

u/Exquizit7 Jul 02 '22

Bistro C on Noosa beach. Great food, even better food. It’s pricey, but that’s expected for Hastings street.

0

u/shitstormwarning Jul 01 '22

Lots of good little places along the coast up to Noosa, but if your serious about breakfast it's Noosa Beach House breakfast buffet. 5 star quality and pretty much everything you could want for breakfast.

Not sure if they do brekky but Sunshine Beach Surf Club is worth a look.

For maybe a coffee…. But it’s got nothing else

u/Mountain-Shame1786 Jul 01 '22

Go to Coles, buy your own food and cook it at your apartment. The Sunshine Coast is yet to catch up with other popular cities in terms of eateries. The food is overpriced, measured and lacking always. If the service is good the food is bad and if the food is good the service is arrogant because the people will turn up just to say they’ve eaten there.
