Top 5 Coffee Spots in Noosa
Noosa tucked away on the Sunshine Coast is a vibrant location for surfers, koala sightings, food and wine festivals, and coffee. Here, in no particular order, are five of the top coffee spots to visit in Noosa.
The Drop is the epitome of a cute and cozy café. The location in Noosa Heads is a stone’s throw from the Noosa River as it serves locally roasted beans with healthy kicks of caffeine. That includes black, white, and iced coffees as well as a bevy of made to order juices and smoothies.
The Drop also serves breakfast to ensure your day begins on the right foot. That includes everything from mushroom medleys with goat curds and soft eggs to breakfast wraps teeming with free-range eggs, grilled bacon, and fried vegetables. You also cannot go wrong ordering some cakes and treats to go.
Sometimes you need more coffee than a single shop can supply. That is where Padre Coffee comes in to help. The company is a wholesale and café supplier in Noosaville with four other locations around Australia. Customers can purchase their fix with a variety of espresso, decaf, and seasonal blends online and in person.
Providore on Hastings
Whether you want to grab and go or enjoy a rustic Noosa sunrise, Providore on Hastings is the destination for you. The Queensland gem comes with a waterfront view and a curated selection of coffees from Little Cove Coffee Co. That’s because Providore on Hastings locally sources their produce, coffees, and meals to ensure a minimal carbon footprint and investment in the regional economy.
A trip to Providore on Hastings is not complete without breakfast or brunch. If you opt to visit first thing in the morning, try the fruit and nut loaf that comes toasted with creamy butter or one of the fresh croissants. Guests arriving for a midday pit stop should eye The Ploughman's Plate with smoked leg ham, aged cheddar, cornichons, house chutney, and sourdough.
The folks at Clandestino are connoisseurs of coffee. They have the entire process down to an art form. Watching them handle everything—including roasting, storing, brewing, dripping, and pouring the coffee—is like watching a perfectly coordinated symphony.
The roasters offer a global selection of blends and flavours ranging from Brazil to Ethiopia to Papua New Guinea. There are also distinctions for people who want light, and clean mouth feels versus a rich and full flavour. Clandestino even has a tea and powder available too.
Costa Noosa Espresso
Costa Noosa Espresso got its start in 2004 in the village of Sunshine Beach in Noosa. The café is known for ethically sourced and specialty coffees that come with 100 per cent "A grade" and Arabica beans. Customers can cozy up with a freshly brewed espresso and a slice of cake or take it with them to the home or office.
