A culinary renaissance is underway on the Sunshine Coast. It's what happens when you mix young creatives, enterprising self-starters, talented makers, and small-scale farmers and growers. Against a backdrop of coastal scenery and rich, fertile land, they convene to bring you warm and bright bistros, unpretentious cafes, and roving food trucks.
Here diners will find hyper-local restaurants that wow in both ambience and taste; fusion spots that put their own spin on things; and eateries that borrow influence from rich culinary legacies around the world, including Mexico, Korea, Thailand, and Turkey.
Start the day off right at cozy restaurant where you can linger over a cup of coffee and eggs. In pursuit of outdoor adventure? Grab-and-go options let you hit the trails fast, well-fed and well-fuelled. More often than not, tap- and tasting rooms host hungry diners, still clad in outdoor gear after a day hiking, biking or kayaking, where they can be found washing down a burger with locally-produced beer or cider. Many Sunshine Coast restaurants offer exceptional cocktails and carefully curated beer and wine menus, and have just the thing to complement your unforgettable feast of locally caught spot prawns, Dungeness crab, and freshly shucked oysters, or to make a celebratory night extra special. And patios with a view are plentiful and perfect for ending your day with a west coast sunset while you dine.
With dining options in each community across the Coast, you're always close to a good meal.
