Can you believe Christmas is nearly upon us? We can't!
But the good news is it means the holidays are just around the corner, too. It’s time for a break, don’t you think? And catching up with friends for dinner is one of our favourite holiday activities. One of the perks of being based in Noosa is that we have a dream holiday location at our very finger tips, and local knowledge on the best places to dine.
Holidaying customers that come into the store often ask us for our local recommendations, so we thought it was about time we let you all in on Noosa's best kept dining secrets!
Whisky Boy is our absolute favourite! It’s the brainchild of two of Noosa’s longest and most beloved hospitality professionals, Jimmy and Geoffroy. Geoffroy Marcq, who hails from France, leads the kitchen and is a familiar face at the Noosa Food and Wine Festival. Jimmy Talve, a Noosa local of 16 years, is known for bringing a unique spin to your dining experience, sharing his abundant knowledge of whisky and plenty of banter to your table. It’s not your usual Noosa dinner spot and we love that about it. You'll find it at 10/203 Gympie Terrace, Noosaville, but call or email them to make a booking.
HEADS OF NOOSA
Heads of Noosa Brewing Co is the perfect spot for those who love craft beers and enjoy a relaxed, laid back dinner. It's our sneaky Friday afternoon spot! Founded by two brothers, Lance and Craig, they share their passion for lagers and focus on quality. Apart from being a brewery, it has the adjoining Taproom with beers on tap, as well as a kitchen with a menu to complement their craft beers. You'll find them at 85 Rene St, Noosaville but visit their website for more information. While you are out that way, another good spot to visit in Rene Street is Belmondos Organic Market our morning coffee haunt with a cool vibe!
POMONA DISTILLING CO
Now, this one is a little more off the beaten track, but a must for those who love a nice drive and a little adventure. Located in the Noosa Hinterland, this little slice of paradise is located out on a farm. There is something for everyone and they have live music most Saturday and Sunday afternoons. There’s a beautiful garden area, where you can sit under an arbour made from reclaimed timbers from the old Pomona railway. It’s a very unique spot and one not many tourists have discovered just yet. Words aren't going to do this place justice though, so visit their website or their instagram.
