Between Buderim and Sippy Downs, in the Sunshine Coast University precinct, local Sunny Coasters are noticing a lot of development going on. It's almost like a 'who dunnit' or rather a 'what's new, mate?', there's so much going on. Every week there's a new store opening and another vacant block being turned inside out and upside down with excavators. Not that we are complaining, the increased activities and retail developments mean we don't have to join the scores of holidaymakers in the malls and can rather enjoy being left to our own devices in our 'secret' little shopping areas.
As you might notice, the secret of this little gem is not quite out yet
First, we had Coles in Sippy Downs, which was absolutely wonderful - yes, really! Nobody really knew about it initially, except us and the uni students and they're not around half the year anyway.
And, now we have Banjo's Bakery Cafe. I wasn't really too familiar with Banjo's, but have a girlfriend who 'swears' by their little mini sausage rolls. So, when I initially saw the Banjo's signage go up, I kept a watchful eye out every week for either an increase in parked cars, or of course the, to-be-expected, open doors. At last, my patience was rewarded!
Hubby's choice for breakfast was the Egg Bacon Breakfast Pie, which definitely wouldn't have been on my repertoire of breakfast choices, but he said it was really, really delicious - so I guess the old story of never judging a pie by its crust - oops, I mean a book by its cover, is applicable here.
I ordered my usual Skinny Latte - I know, I know, I tend to border on totally boring with my choices. Banjo's Bakery Cafe use their own in-house premium coffee and advocate that their coffee is sustainably grown, making the world a better place, one cup at a time. This little adage somehow enhanced my coffee taste and without a doubt, I would have to say, it was one of the best coffees I've had in a long while.
As if the smell of Banjo's Bakery Cafe's freshly baked bread or the taste of their melt-in-the-mouth pastries wasn't temptation enough, visitors to Banjo's now also have the opportunity to earn reward points at every visit.

Banjo's Bakery Cafe have an indoor and outdoor seating area and at this point in time, are blessed with plenty of parking - if we keep this little gem as a secret between ourselves, we might be able to keep the available parking status quo.
