The "dippy eggs" come in the cutest ceramic dish. The kids will love them! Recently they've added "arvo tapas and booze" - maybe leave the kids with a sitter to enjoy these. Open daily for brunch and Thursday to Sunday for tapas, add White Picket Fence cafe to your must-do Caloundra list.
Keeping up the white theme, after brunch go further up Bulcock Street to browse at the gorgeous Whitepepper Homewares store.
There are plenty of great cafes and eateries along Bulcock Street or the shores of Bulcock and Kings beaches. But for something quieter, head to the back streets of Caloundra for the oasis of Malarkey Artisan Coffee.
There is something for everyone, with men's and women's clothes, surfboards and homewares. Rust houses a curated selection of Australian surf craft, fashion, art and homewares including works of local ceramicists.
After a browse at Rust and an afternoon swim at Kings or Bulcock Beach, you'll need treats for the drive home. Stop off at The Pastry Lab under the Aspect block of units in the Happy Valley area, for top quality French pastries, cakes and tarts. Another hidden gem!
