6 Fun Breakfast Dates
Slipping into weekend mode early is a cinch at Sunshine Plaza with a bounty of fun breakfast dates ready to be had.
From ziplines and rock climbing to piles of melt-in-your-mouth pancakes and strong coffee, here are six ways to find your Sunday Zen on any day of the week.
Wake up with mouth-watering butterscotch waffles from the newest addition to the Sunshine Plaza foodie scene, Pancake Pantry. And before you say anything, yes, they do make pancakes and they are some of the fluffiest in the region but to really dive into those weekend vibes, why not mix it up and order something you’d never attempt to make at home. Like, Belgian waffles with a butterscotch sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Breakfast dates with kids can be tricky, so swap the usual café hang for a morning at Rush Adventureland. Not only will the kids get to run full steam ahead—climbing, tumbling, jumping and flying their way across the multi-level soft playground, ninja course and rock climbing wall—but thanks to the on-site café you’ll get to supervise with a coffee in hand and something to nibble on. Bring a friend along and you’ll barely notice you’re not sitting somewhere by the sea, without a flurry of children nearby.
Due for a date with the girls? Plan for an AM catch-up and then you’ve got the whole day left for a side of shopping, beach swims and afternoon cocktails. Find a table at Shingle Inn and as hard as it may be, look past the bacon and eggs and smashed avo. Because, it’s the high tea you really want to experience. Nibble ribbon sandwiches, scones coated with jam and fresh cream, and a selection of sweets, while sipping on a hot coffee or leaf tea.
Swing into a more relaxed state with a different kind of breakfast date. One of the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast, Next Level will shake up your regular sit-down session, for a thrilling experience that’ll have you bonding with your breakfast buddy far more than sharing a table over eggs benny will. Cheer each other on as you take your friendship to new heights and at the end of it all, if you’re still hungry, try heading to one of the tasty options above.
Consider yourself royalty when it comes to smashing the best breakfasts on the Sunshine Coast? Well, here’s another to add to your hit list. Overlooking Cornmeal Creek, Wine & Nine dishes up “that Sunday feeling” every day of the week, and with it an array of breakfasts that will go straight to the memory bank. For a sultry and sweet start to the day, order the apple pie French toast. Drizzled with salted caramel sauce, berry coulis, crumble, ice cream and a smattering of seasonal berries, you’ve never tasted anything quite like this.
A breakfast date on the water? Now that’s one way to sink into a slower state of being. Sip a coffee nearby—San Churro, Shingle Inn or Pancake Pantry pour a smooth cup of liquid gold—then power up those legs as you chat and cruise along the creek in a Plaza Pontoon paddleboat. You’ll basically be ticking off a workout, keeping up with your social life and getting a daily dose of Vitamin D in one go—now that’s multi-tasking!
