Sips & Bites: Summer 2022
What’s brewing, cooking and happening…
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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!
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
