Sips & Bites: Spring 2023
What’s brewing, cooking and happening…
BLI BLI BRILLIANCE!
Bli Bli Hotel is rising from the old canefields to open in late spring! Expect a refined menu beyond traditional pub fare on three levels of dining, from a tropical garden-style events space to a light-filled bistro to a bespoke rooftop bar.
The Wonky Loaf is getting a wonky refresh and we can’t wait to experience the renovated spaces, rebranding, a locally stocked retail store and new offerings including a surprising sourdough cake!
Unwind after a sun-soaked day on the sand at Pizzeria Sisily, transporting you from Golden Beach to Italy with authentic woodfired pizza, delectable dishes, craft brews and curated cocktails!
Pop into The Walkway for gourmet cheese, cured meats and dry goods! Caloundra’s newest side-street deli and café offers coffee, breakfast, lunch, fresh sandwiches and grazing platters – perfect for a beach picnic!
After two years in the making, Wild Barrel will open as the first and only brewery based on a farm in the Sunshine Coast hinterland! Produced from locally-caught yeast, organic ingredients and aged in barrels, indulge in unique vintages and limited releases!
PERFECTION IN A SCOOP
Artigiano has perfected the art of gelato! Visit their new store in Maroochydore for artisanal creations, in traditional pozzetti tubs!
COFFEE ON THE CORNER
There’s a new kid on the corner in Nambour! Taste Ari Coffee Co’s vintage black coffee blend with a cheeky pastry or doughnut as the owners plan to expand their offering!
POP INTO POPPY’S
After serving Japanese, Korean and Asian fusion cuisine to loyal locals, Poppy’s Delights will also open a café for brunch in the same complex as their Sippy Downs sushi shop!
Four Sunshine Coast stalwarts have earned first places at the 2023 Restaurant & Catering Awards for Excellence!
