What’s brewing, cooking and happening…

BOTTARGA

From the magic of Periwinkle Peregian Beach, expect Italian excellence when Bottarga opens next to Giddy Geisha in the CBD.

FLO SURE 

Flo’s Crêperie’s second restaurant at The Wharf Mooloolaba brings the taste of France inside every sweet and savoury crêpe, coffees and cocktails! 

WHERE THE OCEAN ENDS

Ocean Ended is back at Platinum with locally sourced coastal cuisine, warm service and views of the Maroochy River. Platinum Café has also opened, brewing coffee and serving breakfast and lunch in a fresh atmosphere. 

SUMMER SALADS 

With eight stores across Sydney, Ben and Nat Thomas launched Queensland’s first Banana Blossom restaurant at Alexandra Headlands! Their fresh fast-food alternative sources premium local ingredients for authentic Asian spices for salads, rice bowls and rice paper rolls. 

BUT FIRST…

Buderim’s local favourite John Kyle Espresso is coming to Maroochydore with a slick new coffeehouse opening soon! 

Surrounded by parklands in the Caloundra West Mountain Bike Trails, family-owned Declan’s Coffee offers exceptional coffee, croissants, muffins and more in honour of the family’s late grandfather. 

GET THAT DOUGH

After the success of her café and donut bar in Buderim, Vanessa O’Neill has brought Dough Ho to Mooloolaba Esplanade! Indulge with ice cream donuts, loaded cookies, milkshakes and more! 

ELEVATED FLAVOUR

With a new chef in the kitchen, Spanish bar Tapas 10 is back with a fresh focus on breakfast, lunch and sensational tapas nights from their hinterland balcony with coastal views. 

TIME FOR THAI

Authentic homecooked meals inspire the menu at Baan Mai, the new Thai restaurant cooking traditional curries, wok-tossed meals and salads in Mudjimba. 

ON THE OPEN FLAME

Joining Sippy Social on Central Drive, Sippy Downs, Flames Charcoal Grill infuses sizzling lamb, beef and chicken with pure, intense flavour on odourless Japanese Binchōtan coals. 

Woodfired Montville just opened in a blaze of flavour and passion, combining steakhouse, burger bar and pizzeria for a hearty night in the hinterland. 

RAISING THE FLAG

Blackflag Brewing’s new headquarters at Coolum Beach boasts a beer garden, indoor seating and bar overlooking the brewhouse and tasting room.

SMALL BATCH

Sunshine & Sons are renowned for their limited-edition fresh gin with less than 50 bottles of each flavour made depending on what’s in season as it’s sourced fresh from the local farmer! It’s only available from the distillery door so if you missed out on the Electric Red Gin, make sure you pop in to Woombye to get your hands on the new flavour of the week!

WHIRLWIND OF WHITE’S 

Opening late 2022, the new White’s IGA Forest Glen is living and supporting local with locally grown and sourced products. It was the White’s contributions to the community which earned their award for Retail (Large Business) at the Sunshine Coast Business Awards 2022! Congratulations Roz and Michael!

STAYING ON

Riceboi’s Head Chef Nick Blake turned heads when he announced he was leaving but never fear – he is taking time out to prepare for the opening of Tony Kelly Restaurant Group’s next project! 

DON’T MISS!

Our Hello Sunshine Magazine wine lunch at Peregian Beach’s Pitchfork Restaurant will celebrate autumn with a three-course feast with matching wines! 

Date: Friday 10 March, 12-2.30pm
Cost: $95 per person.
