Whether you’re feeling like a healthy kick-start or the weekend has just rolled around and you feel like treatin’ yo self, we’ve got you covered.

We came, we saw, we devoured and now we’re sharing them with you. Here are 5 of the best breakfasts being served up in Sunshine Coast cafes right now.

Sweet Corn, Pea and Mint Fritters with Bacon at Harvest Breads, Maroochydore

Anything that comes with bacon is always a good choice. But looking beyond the bacon to the rest of this brekkie dish, you’ll see Harvest Breads has outdone themselves with this tasty treat.

Their sweet corn, pea and mint fritters loaded up with bacon, rocket and fetta are a must try. So much so that you may never be able to order anything else for fear of your taste buds missing out! Then again, take one look at their freshly-baked croissants, pastries and cakes and you’ll be stocking up for morning tea.

Avocado Smash at The Velo Project, Mooloolaba

The Velo Project | Best breakfasts on the Sunshine Coast

Don’t you hate it when a cafe is skimpy on the avo? Well that certainly won’t be the case here! The Avocado Smash is the most popular item on The Velo Project’s menu, and with good reason.

What you will find is a generous serving of avo with lightly charred corn kernels, red onion, roasted garlic, a drizzle of lemon juice and zesty herbs, served up on toasted ciabatta. It’s the perfect brekkie when you’re really over eggs and it’s available gluten free, as well as being dairy free and vegan. It’s a win-win dish for everyone!
