Coffee gems in Noosa!

Not only does Noosa pride itself as a slice of coastal bliss, stunning natural attractions with a thriving food scene, we also pride ourselves on the array of coffees.  Having the luxury of living in a tourist town there is an abundance of cafes, pop up coffee vans and stalls offering smooth coffees with creamy funky designs.  Some cafes like to shake things up, recently in a new raw café, had to try the a half coconut / half almond milk………. tasted a little different but still delicious.

At Noosa Crest we offer Little Cove Coffee called the smooth percolator which is a must if your a keen coffee drinker.  If you can get to the Little Cove café, try there recent cockodoodle brew which pulls back your eyelids and SCREAMS wake up in the morning.

The list would be endless if I was to name all the great cafes in town but to name a few off the radar would be Black Pepper in Noosa Junction.  Todd & Steph (mother & son) are very welcoming, offer gluten free food and love a chat.  If your along Gympie terrace, can’t go past Grind nor The River Read Bookstore, I love checking out the latest books as I sip away.  On Hastings street is Hard Café in bay village.  They offer Campos coffee which is smooth & strong. 

If your in Sunshine Beach try out Dukes Deli which has recently changed over to Tobys Estate coffee, great customer service plus they add in a little shortbread on the side, I’m also a bit partial to the celebrity spotting from the deck.  Another popular local spot is Gibsons, they have an amazing coffee machine called La Marzocco and specially ordered the colour green in fitting with the cafe.  They offer exotic Lattetude coffee beans and a great place on a hot day offering air conditioning and lots of magazines & papers to indulge in.

Belmondos is also a hot spot, its a fresh food market in Noosa off the beaten track in Rene street (industrial estate).  You can view a range of coffee beans and take the time to discuss, smell and review your next brew.  They pride themselves in top quality products with good old fashion customer service.  

Every corner in Noosa you will find a coffee shop so be sure to let us know how your brew went!

Noosa’s a Winter Wonderland

By | accommodation noosa, beach holiday, Beach holidays, Blog, Family holidays, Hastings street, Laguna Bay, Noosa Accommodation, Noosa Apartments, Noosa Crest Resort, Noosa food, Noosa Hill, Noosa Hinterland, Noosa Resort, Noosa restaurants, Noosa River, Noosa shopping, Romantic escapes, Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s winter?  Seriously? This is end of another perfect winter day in Noosa. A winter wonderland with a difference!

True…it is cooler, especially at night and those mornings can be a challenge to get to the beach for that morning walk or swim but seriously! It’s 22 degrees during the day and the temperature really only plummets to 12 degrees on the coolest nights. Not exactly freezing…right!

The locals may be rugged up in coats and boots but the visitors are out on the beach in force, frolicking in the waves, surfing, swimming and having fun. Even the little ones are out there on their boogie boards totally oblivious to the fact that it’s winter! 

We think this is absolutely the best time to visit Noosa and here’s why:

*It’s peaceful. No crowds, parking is not an issue – on the street or for yourself on the beach, nor is getting into your fav restaurant or getting a room at a great price.

*Shop and café staff are more attentive and relaxed and are genuinely happy to see you and serve you. And best of all, there are bargains to be had!

*The beach is perfect…unspoilt by crowds and the water is calm and crystal clear. Fish everywhere! Noosa’s North Shore is at its best – so it’s a great time to head up the beach in your 4WD and enjoy a spot of fishing.

*Most days are clear and sunny and finish with stunning sunsets – like the one above. Sometimes it rains but not often (and when it does it’s your excuse to curl up on the lounge with your book and a hot chocolate).

*Wildlife spotting is better. The koalas seem to appear more often in the National Park and the brush turkeys are everywhere and the birdlife is amazing, everything seems to come to life.

*The cool weather is perfect for hiking the National Park or Noosa Hill or even exploring the mountain ranges, and for long bike rides out to quaint hinterland towns or down the scenic coast road.  It’s also perfect for throwing on a jacket and strolling to your restaurant of choice for a luscious glass of red with your pork belly or Osso Buco.   And, for finding a sunny spot on the grass for a lunchtime picnic in the Woods, the Lions Park or along Gympie Terrace.

*And best of all….it’s perfect weather for snuggling up with your loved one and enjoying those romantic sunsets.

We love Noosa in winter and so will you.  Let us know if you have had any special winter moments in Noosa.

Keep warm!

Welcome to Noosa badgeLast night our resort team attended the unveiling of Tourism Noosa’s much anticipated Welcome to Noosa initiative. Together with 250 other Tourism Noosa members, we witnessed the beginning of a new era in customer service for Noosa. Wow!

In an effort to ensure that Noosa visitors are greeted with warmth, friendliness, enthusiasm and professional service, and to meet the expectations of todays’ discerning travellers in a competitive tourism environment, Tourism Noosa has now created an innovative tourism training initiative that aims to revitalise a quality service culture throughout the industry and boost Noosa’s reputation as a premier holiday destination.

Welcome to Noosa, is about not just meeting the expectations of our guests but exceeding them and proving to visitors that Noosa is a world class destination to visit again and again. The program is basically an easy-to-use online training program that helps Noosa’s customer service industry to build stronger businesses and deliver a memorable experience for visitors to Noosa and local customers alike.

We loved that Celebrity chef Pete Evans was the special guest at the launch and is the face of the campaign…a perfect ambassador. His whole life is about customer service and of course he loves Noosa and is a regular visitor here. What’s not to love!

We are all looking forward to completing the program so next time you’re in Noosa, look out for these badges which indicate those of us who have completed the program and are now Welcome to Noosa ambassadors.
