Noosa’s newest restaurants

It’s no secret Noosa embraces food and dining with a fervent, fresh-focussed passion. The region is home to renowned restaurants and acclaimed chefs alike.

In recent times this vibrant dining location has also witnessed the arrival of a new breed of innovative foodies, with quaint bars, boutique breweries and Asian-inspired gems all vying for the position of the best new offering in town.

Here’s an insight into Noosa’s newest restaurants that will see you spoiled for choice when it comes to fresh options within a dynamic dining scene.

Land and Sea

Perched within the industrial estate of Noosaville’s developing Venture Drive is a new venue that’s eliciting much talk about town. Land and Sea Brewery opened in late January offering a dining option that extends from breakfast through to dinner.

With an ethos espousing the quintessential Noosa lifestyle, it’s a laid-back place where the conversation and fresh-brewed beers readily flow.

MakiMoto Noosa

Unveiled just over a year ago, MakiMoto Noosa is a fully licensed restaurant that brings authentic Japanese flavours to the heart of Hastings Street. With takeaway options, a sushi bar and contemporary dining facilities, it’s the type of place you return to time and again.

Larder and Baked

Noosa Junction has undergone somewhat of a renaissance in recent years with the shopping precinct now featuring a wealth of exciting restaurant and cafe options.

Larder and Baked is among the latest to join this list. Open for breakfast and lunch on Sunshine Beach Road, everything here is created in-house with a menu that is fresh, innovative and healthy and sees you repeatedly returning for more.

Eddie Cheeba’s

Taking a leaf out of Melbourne’s book, Eddie Cheeba’s at Noosa Junction is an almost hidden boutique bar in a laneway of the bustling shopping precinct.

This new arrival boasts a lively ambience including hanging beer taps, recycled sleepers, and amazing wine selection and epic cocktails. Within weeks of opening, it’s attracting a loyal patronage and positive reviews.

Sum Yung Guys

Over the hill at Sunshine Beach there’s also foodie flair afoot, with the boutique dining enclave recently welcoming the arrival of Sum Yung Guys. This fun, Asian-infused restaurant has a focus on share plates and features a vibrant atmosphere to complement the mouth-watering menu.

Copperhead Brewery

A little farther afield but worth the scenic drive is a fresh restaurant that symbolises the hinterland’s feisty new attitude as a gastronomic gem.

Copperhead Brewery, overlooking Tewantin Road, features a rustic ambience, a bespoke micro-brewery and simply fabulous food that sets a new tone for this bustling greater Noosa town.

Just in case you missed them…

This exciting list of new entrants joins an ever-expanding group of offerings that have changed the face of Noosa dining progressively over the past five years.
