Sunshine Coast restaurants and cafes 

Pristine beaches and lush hinterland aren’t the only things the Sunshine Coast serves up. Try out their true main meal of top-notch bars, restaurants and eateries on offer. Foodies mix million-dollar views with iconic surf clubs, revamped rooftops and local espresso haunts. Once the sun goes down, cosy speakeasy bars and relaxed micro-breweries add flavor to the scene. Whatever makes your mouth water, you’ll find it on the Sunshine Coast.

Noosa restaurants and cafes

Dubbed one of Australia’s most fashionable resort towns, Noosa’s epic foodie hotspots have an answer for every kind of craving. Take a stroll down the boutique-lined Hastings Street and you’ll find everything from tummy satisfying burgers to organic goodness. For something more underground, head to Bourke Street for authentic Italian or Sunshine Beach Road for a sushi fix. Away from the hustle and bustle of Noosa Heads, Noosaville offers waterfront views and everything from internationally-inspired to local seafood delights. Oh, and coffee connoisseurs, don’t fret. Cafes are pretty much guaranteed in every Noosa nook.
