Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Welcome to Eudlo, an historical timber town - Image: Elaine de Wet


Have you ever been to Eudlo? Nope, me neither, so a visit was long overdue. Eudlo (pronounced you-d-lo) is a teeny, tiny historical timber town, established in 1892 on the Sunshine Coast, about five kilometres from Palmwoods. At the 2011 census Eudlo recorded a population of just over one thousand residents, so as you can see I'm not exaggerating about its size.

The reason for our visit was an impromptu lunch - thinking that we would drive around until we found something suitable. As we discovered, the driving around was not a necessity, as on entering Eudlo, we came across Sweethearts Cafe, which appeared to be extremely busy for a sleepy Saturday afternoon.

Sweethearts Cafe is a charming little eatery on Anzac Road which serves breakfasts, lunches, a kids' menu and everything in-between.

The day we visited it was a coolish Autumn afternoon, so the outdoor section was naturally my choice so that I could feel the warmth of the sun.

Hubby ordered a BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato) for $12, whereas I was feeling very adventurous and went for the Veggie Burger which had everything: lettuce, tomato, cheese, basil pesto, beetroot and avo on a Turkish Roll, all for $13. We ordered Iced Lattes, which were served in practical tall insulated glasses.

My totally delicious Veggie Burger - Image: Elaine de Wet


Our food orders were taken at the counter before we found our outdoor spot and could sit back and enjoy the absolute peace and quiet of this quaint little town. One of my favourite pastimes, besides chatting (my hubby always says I chat to the baker, the butcher AND the candlestick maker, given half the chance) is to people watch. The other guests appeared to be an assortment of locals, who came to enjoy their newspapers whilst enjoying a cuppa and a slice of cake or explorers like ourselves, who just happened upon this picturesque little town.

Our lunch orders were delivered promptly and to say that my Veggie Burger was mouth-wateringly good just to look at, would be an understatement. It was beautifully presented and considering that I didn't have all the extra paraphernalia on the plate (i.e. fries and salad), I could see that this was going to prove a humungous task to take the first bite. I guess I should have asked for some cutlery when I requested the extra serviettes. But perhaps… this is the best way to eat a burger with all the juices running down one's chin? Our food was perfect…..tasty, fresh and with a multitude of savoury taste sensations that definitely tickled the taste buds.

We loved the whole ambience of this delightful little Cafe in Eudlo and will definitely make the effort for a return visit in the near future. The owner and staff were all chatty and friendly, making us feel truly privileged that we could enjoy our lunch at their special venue. So, when next you're out and about, enjoying the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, bookmark the little hamlet of Eudlo and discover its charms for yourself…and, especially the Sweethearts Cafe.

Recently discovered Sweethearts cafe too and agree with your comments completely, friendly with delicious home made goodness. Will be back and hope the upside down pineapple cake is on the menu that day. Yummo
