Kirk’s English Patisserie – Only a short drive from the Seaview

March 24, 2011

We try to get out for a coffee as often as possible so we can enjoy this beautiful coast. We have recently stumbled  across Kirk’s English Patisserie only a short drive from the Seaview.

Being Pom’s ourselves it was great to find somewhere that serves excellent coffee and the best Eccles cakes I have had in Australia. Next on the list to try is the pork sausage rolls, bakewell tart, pork pie and ploughman’s….The list goes on.

We normally sit in the back courtyard admiring the beautiful yachts at their moorings.

Great Restaurant in Mooloolaba – Hot Pipis

January 13, 2011

Birthday at Hot Pipis - Mooloolaba

Well another year has flown by and it was time to celebrate my birthday this week. I received a free Birthday meal from Hot Pipis on Mooloolaba Esplanade so decided to booked a table. The weather was awfully and we contemplated cancelled as Hot Pipis is an outdoor restaurant. We decided to brave the weather and stroll down form the Seaview Resort.

The service and the food where outstanding and the weather was not a problem as they had enclosed the restaurant.

We ended up going down again the next day for coffee as they where donating all money made from the sale of coffee to the Flood Relief.

September 6, 2010

There are many excellent Restaurants, Cafes and other places to eat in Mooloolaba.  One of our favourite Restaurants is m@mooloolaba, which is just a couple of minutes walk away from Seaview Resort.  It is the winner of  Best Restaurant Sunshine Coast 2010 by “SC Epicureans”.  m@mooloolaba is a Steak and Seafood Restaurant, and their cold Seafood Selection, or Seafood BBQ at lunchtimes  would be our recommendation.  The Menu is small but varied, and the cooking top class.  Well worth a visit.

Australia Zoo and Ettamogah Pub

August 23, 2010

Australia Zoo is one of the top tourist attractions in Australia and it’s only a 20 minute drive away from Seaview Resort.  We would definitely recommend a visit during your stay.  The Zoo grounds are kept in an immaculate condition and there are numerous food outlets dotted around the area.  The food and drinks available seemed very reasonably priced.  It is advisable to get to the Zoo early to see the various attractions and shows.  Our favourite show was seeing the tigers playing with their keepers and swimming in a glass-sided pool.  Of course the crocodiles are one of the major attractions and not to be missed.  Feeding the elephants is very popular with children of all ages. Using their trunks, the elephants delicately take small pieces of fruit from the visitor’s hands and pop it into their mouths.  There is plenty to see and do at the Zoo and a day there seems too short.  They are doing a special at the moment – Visit in August and get the rest of 2010 for free!

A stop at the Ettamogah Pub on the Bruce Highway on your return is a very nice was to round off the day.
