Restaurants Open Past 9pm

One of the best things about living on the Sunshine Coast is the relaxed vibes and holiday-style living all year round. But one thing that comes with that down-to-earth atmosphere, is the difficulty of finding a restaurant open for late night eats. Perhaps you’ve gone to see a gig on Ocean Street, or you’ve just finished a movie at BCC Cinemas with your better half – where do you go for a good quality late night meal? Sunshine Plaza has 8 amazing restaurants that open past 9pm so you never have to go home hungry again!

El Camino Cantina | 11pm everyday
At the end of a big day or a fun night, there’s nothing better than a bit of Tex-Mex grub to really satisfy a hunger. Or maybe there is… Enter El Camino Cantina, the place for legendary Tex-Mex dining. Try the unlimited corn chips with zesty red and green salsas, fresh tacos, sizzling fajitas, hand-made tortillas, quesadillas and nachos. The late night vibes are also a winner, with their signature cocktails, neon lights and sing-along tunes. They’re open until 11pm every day at Sunshine Plaza, so there’s no reason to go home hungry again!

San Churro Chocolateria | 10pm Wednesday-Saturday
Picture this, you’ve just had a delicious dinner with that someone special but you’re not ready to call it a night just yet. Enter Chocolateria San Churro! They deliver moreish desserts, from churros to chocolatey snack packs and decadent chocolate shakes until 10pm from Wednesday to Saturday. So you can gaze into each other’s eyes for much longer, while treating yourself to something special. 

Grill’d | 10pm everyday
What nourishes a late night craving better than a burger? Not too much as far as we’re concerned. Grill’d is known for their healthy burgers that are free from artificial colours, flavours and preservatives, but they also care about the local community and the environment. So you can enjoy a late night burger until 10pm every day with a side of giving back!

House of Gelato | 12pm Friday
Here’s a fun quiz: What’s the best way to end a Friday night? A shot of tequila? Walking through the Macca’s Drive Thru hoping to get served? Waiting 40 minutes for an Uber that doesn’t show up? No, nope, and no way! End your evening on a high by treating yourself to a delicious gelato or sorbet from House of Gelato. It’s tasty, refreshing and a little bit naughty. And it won’t leave you with a sore head on Saturday morning. Open until 12pm every Friday night.

Cantina De Mad Mex | 10pm Thursday-Saturday
From Thursday to Saturday you can enjoy Baja-style cuisine until 10pm at Cantina De Mad Mex. From burritos to beers it’s all bueno, baby! Enjoy the simple, good quality Mexican food and chilled Latin vibes with your friends, lover or even take your parents out for a late night drink sometime. Everyone will love the vibe and the menu items including the Naked Burrito Bowl and the Grilled Chipotle Chicken Tacos. 

The Bavarian | 11pm everyday
Even if you’re not that hungry but you want to make a great evening even better, the Bavarian has everything you could want for good vibes, great drinks and even better food. Indulge in Bavarian-style food and beer (there’s a whopping 17 on tap) in this casual and vibrant venue that promises big crowds and big steins of beer until 11pm every day of the week.

Yum Cha Cuisine | 10pm Thursday-Saturday
When it’s late and feel like you could eat a full banquet to yourself – this is your invitation to do it! Yum Cha Cuisine is a huge venue situated smack bang in the middle of the Riverwalk and offers delicious Chinese dishes like spring rolls, dumplings, pork ribs, salt and pepper calamari, and heaps more. It’s open until 10pm from Thursday to Saturday and if you’re really up for a big meal, try the banquet for two at $42 per person. 

Zarraffas Coffee
| 10pm Thursday-Saturday
Surprisingly, the place renowned for its caffeine-fuelled drinks is actually open after 10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. This is great news for those working night shift and are in need of a serious caffeine fix. But it’s also a great option for someone wanting a snack or a tasty drink but can’t quite commit to a huge meal at 9pm at night. We can’t get enough of the Salted Caramel Popcorn Fusion – yum!
