Try your favourite brew on Hastings street
Whether you partake in your morning brew after a walk through the National Park, pre-surf or after a morning trawling the boutiques, coffee in Hastings St is a serious business. Ask a local and each will have their preferred brew and barista, and with coffee taking its place as one of the most important rituals of a holiday morning, it’s important to get it right. And let’s face it, whilst it’s almost impossible to get a bad coffee in Noosa, the following should give you a good indication of where to head regardless of when you like your caffeine hit:
Early morning- Café Le Monde
Café Le Monde has been greeting early risers along Hastings St with their coffee of choice for decades. Open at 6am and stocking Clandestino coffee, roasted right here in Noosa (head out to Belmondos for a look at the roastery and every kind of caffeinated beverage possible), Café Le Monde does life-affirming justice to the bean any time of day.
With a view – Sails Coffee Cart,
Tucked up in the National Park end of Main Beach is the Sails Coffee Cart, where grabbing a takeaway brew as you dip your feet in the sand couldn’t be easier.
Street front - Aromas
Aromas is as close to Paris in Noosa as you can get, but you could also be mistaken for being in the midst of a Melbournian coffee house. With its very own coffee blended by award winning barista Tim Adams, the Hastings Blend is sourced from three sustainable farms in Brazil and Columbia, roasted on the Sunshine Coast and prepared by expertly trained baristas on Sanremo Café Racers, ensuring even the most discerning coffee connoisseur can be satiated at Aromas. Watching the passing foot traffic simply adds to the experience.
Late Night Lover - Locale
Is there anything moodier, more alluring or sophisticated than an espresso martini served in a bar of dark wood, polished glass and muted lighting? Just about every restaurant and bar in Hastings St can offer a good coffee cocktail of the hour, but if you want to take it up a sexy level, perch yourself at Locale’s uber attractive bar and try their cold drip coffee Negroni ‘better than an espresso Martini,’ the Negroni Svegliato.
