You can work up quite an appetite by climbing any one of the Glass House Mountains just outside the Sunshine Coast. A snack at any of the summits can fight off the hunger pains temporarily, but nothing will nourish you more than a stop by .

Just down the road from the Glass House Mountains Lookout , the cafe is as scenic as the mountains themselves. Take a seat on the large undercover balcony and enjoy views of Mount Beerwah, Mount Coonowrin and Mount Ngungun .

They've got quite a simple menu here but it's more than sufficient. After an early morning walk up any of the nearby mountains you'll be dying for a decent feed. The menu had everything you could expect from raisin toast ($5.50), pancakes ($8.50) to bacon and eggs ($10) and even a range of cereal ($4).

I stopped by recently after finishing a climb up the very steep Mount Beerburrum climb and needed a big feed - so Breakfast ($14) spoke volumes to me. It had two rashes of bacon, eggs of my choice, grilled tomato, mushrooms and a hash brown served with toast. It was simple but was exactly what I was after at that stage - a rewarding dish considering that morning's exercise.

The scenery on offer from the cafe is worth the stop here alone. If you're lucky you'll have the entire cafe to yourself to take in the scenery. If you're lucky you may even spot a bit of wildlife out and about - including kangaroos. I had a couple of magpies eyeing off my meal from the railings. The cafe owners gave us a bottle of water spray just in case they got too close. I didn't even have to use it once but I'd be weary of leaving my plate unattended there.

offers views that rival the peaks of many of the nearby Glass House Mountains themselves. It's in the perfect spot to stop in for a coffee and meal after achieving one of the local climbs. The perfect reward for your hard work.
