A hot breakfast to die for overlooking the Pacific Ocean
The view from the restaurant of the Noosa Surf Club
One Sunday morning my family all found themselves awake at 6am. We decided to take a leisurely drive up the Sunshine Coast. 90 minutes later we found ourselves at Hastings Street, Noosa.
Hastings Street is renowned for beautiful beaches, beautiful people and expensive price tags. However, nestled at the start of Hastings Street, opposite the roundabout, is the Noosa Surf Club. If you've never been here, this place is well worth a visit. It has the enviable position of being right on one of Australia's most beautiful beaches.
The Surf Club is open for breakfast Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to 11am. It is open for lunch and dinner from 11am through to 8.30pm.
A hot coffee on a Sunday morning is just the ticket
The day we were there, it was a brisk 20 degrees in Brisbane. When we got to Noosa it was beautiful and sunny, and warm enough in the sun to wear short sleeves and sandals. People were swimming and surfing, and it seemed as though we had stepped into summer, although we were in the middle of winter.
The Surf Club does a great breakfast menu, and the food is really tasty. It's a traditional breakfast of bacon, eggs, and associated breaky items, served in a variety of ways. The menu also has pancakes and fruit dishes. The food arrives quickly and is delicious. Our coffee wasn't bad either.
But the real beauty of breakfast at the Noosa Surf Club is the views. They are to die for and remind you of everything that is beautiful about the Sunshine Coast.
After breakfast take advantage of the surroundings to go for a leisurely stroll along the beach or browse the Hastings Street shops. Perhaps stop for an icecream later on in the morning at one of the icecream huts in the area.
Noosa Surf Club is the Winner of Best Surf Club in Australia in 2013. It has the usual surf club bar, TAB and gaming lounge. Regular live entertainment is offered as well as karaoke. Check out their website for information about what's on.
Opening hours are 11am to midnight Monday to Friday, and 8am to late Saturday and Sunday. It is located at 69 Hastings Street, Noosa, right on the roundabout. Parking can be difficult in peak times, so it is best to park in the Hastings Street carpark, but it is well worth the effort. The views are to die for.
