Layne Whit­burn goes on a foodie road trip around the Coast to dis­cover some of the sweet­est break­fasts on the menu

Life & Style Weekend - - FRONT PAGE -

MORN­ING or not, a golden stack of maple syrupy pan­cakes are worth jumping out of bed for. It’s a Sun­day morn­ing favourite, but cafes around the Sun­shine Coast are stack­ing on the cre­ativ­ity with all kinds of dessert-wor­thy bites for the AM.

Here’s 10 deca­dent break­fasts on the Coast to dig your sweet tooth into.

Nutella brioche toast

No need to move to Italy to en­joy some of the world’s most loved flavours…. Just drop into De­ci­sions Café for some Ital­ian-in­fused bril­liance. In­spired by the French pas­try brioche com­bined with another Ital­ian chef-d’oeu­vre, Nutella. Com­plete with a peanut but­ter ice cream cone and vanilla foam, this choc hazel­nut twist on brioche makes jam on toast his­tory.

4/10 Cap­i­tal Place, Birtinya.

French tower

From Italy to France, Euro­peans know how to do break­fast right. Take the good old fash­ioned French toast for ex­am­ple. CK Whole­foods have put a whole­some twist in the break­fast favourite with their French tower. Stacks of or­ganic ba­nana bread style French toast are topped with straw­ber­ries, goji berries, figs, wal­nuts and Co-Yo Co­conut Yo­ghurt, then driz­zled with 100% pure Cana­dian maple syrup. Bon ap­petite!

17 Bris­bane Rd, Mooloolaba.


Crois­sant or muffin? It’s a tough choice, so the team at

Sun­shine Sun­shine Espresso have com­bined the two and cre­ated a cruf­fin. Their salted caramel cruf­fin gets our vote with their le­mon curd cruf­fin com­ing in a close sec­ond. Hot tip: they don’t last long – so don’t save this deca­dent treat for af­ter­noon tea, make it a break­fast treat and drop into Sun­shine Sun­shine Espresso be­fore the daily batch gets de­voured.

A fluffy stack of warm pan­cakes had to fea­ture on this list, and Via Italia have de­liv­ered. Made with grilled ba­nana, rich caramel, salted macadamias and of course vanilla ice cream, this is how ev­ery Sun­day morn­ing should taste.

Ba­nana bread

When your sweet tooth is call­ing but your PT is keep­ing an eye on diet, Bo­hemian Bun­ga­low have you covered with their house-baked ba­nana bread. Topped with honey mas­car­pone and fresh straw­ber­ries, it tastes like health and hap­pi­ness feels.

All this sweet talk giv­ing you the sugar shakes? Lucky we have pinned down a savour op­tion for the salty lovers. Dukes Deli crepes come with two choices – scram­bled egg and ba­con for the savoury fans or ba­nana and fruit com­pote for the sweet tooths. 4/40 Dukes St, Sun­shine Beach.

Chia pud­ding

It may be called a pud­ding, but this break­fast is burst­ing with nu­tri­tion. Chia seeds are a great source of healthy omega-3 fats and fibre and have many pos­i­tive health ef­fects in­clud­ing sta­bil­is­ing blood sugar, aid­ing di­ges­tion, boost­ing en­ergy and low­er­ing choles­terol. Brown Sugar Espresso adds the good­ness of Granny Smith ap­ples, or­ganic cin­na­mon and macadamia milk for one de­li­cious and ul­tra-nu­tri­tious chia pud­ding de­light.

6/2-4 Mitchell St, Nambour.

Sugar pret­zels

Third-gen­er­a­tion baker Dane Van We­gen, of Van We­gens Con­ti­nen­tal Bak­ery, is renowned for his sour­dough but, when it comes to some­thing a lit­tle less sour and a lot sweeter, Dane’s hot but­tered cin­na­mon sugar pret­zels are a must-try. Made on­site and from scratch, you’re guar­an­teed a fresh de­light hot off the bak­ing tray. 15/130 Bris­bane Rd, Mooloolaba.

Ri­cotta gin­ger­bread waf­fles

There are waf­fles and then there are ri­cotta gin­ger­bread waf­fles. Topped with poached chai pear, spiced mas­car­pone, roasted nuts, crum­ble, spiced syrup and gar­nished with ed­i­ble flow­ers, it’s safe to say Lit­tle Boat Espresso don’t do av­er­age.

3 Lor­raine Ave, Mar­coola.

Panna cotta

Panna cotta for break­fast? Yes, it can be done… and Woombye’s new­est café, Win­nie, have nailed it. Their Baram­bah yo­gurt panna cotta com­pli­mented by Hrvst St gra­nola and poached plum with mint is help­ing put Woombye on the foodie map as well as mak­ing dessert-style break­fasts a reg­u­lar thing.
