Whenever we have a weekend away at the Sunshine Coast, invariably one day Will plays golf with dad leaving mum and me
free alone to a girly mother-daughter day which always includes lunch. A few visits ago we discovered the Thomas Corner Eatery and it has been on the favourites list ever since. The food is fresh and delicious and the service is friendly and super on-the-ball. Our last visit was on Good Friday last week and this little restaurant lived up to the high standards it has set for itself on our previous visits.
The eatery has a gorgeous setting overlooking the Noosa river and has tables inside and outside. It’s lovely and open so you can enjoy the beautiful coastal weather and is well-equipped for the unexpected weather we’ve had lately.
This place has a knack for making everything just a little bit different. Exibit A the cute little flask that your glass of wine arrives in.
We started lunch with lovely fresh, crunchy but soft ciabatta. There was actually more on the plate than that but we were so eager a little of it was devoured before I remembered that I needed a photo.
For entree, we shared a mushroom salad. I forgot to write down the details of this one and being a public holiday, it was a special menu item. I can say that it was delicious.
I can’t show off too much more of the menu unfortunately as we both opted for the fish of the day, snapper, with a ginger, soy and shallot dressing and shared the avocado, shallot, lime, mint and chili side. The fish was perfectly cooked and well complimented by the dressing. It was the perfect Good Friday lunch. On other occasions we have sampled other seafood dishes and always been delighted with the freshness and deliciousness of every meal.
This is also one of the very few times that I didn’t savor anything from the dessert menu. Mum finished her meal off with a short black coffee with lemon.
Not being a coffee drinker, I opted for a peppermint tea. Of course I had include something else (for blogging purposes only) I ordered a madeline on the side. It was light and fluffy with a scrumptious citrus filling. The perfect match for my peppermint tea and not too heavy considering all the Easter eggs I knew were in stall two days later.
It’s not all about the delicious food and great service at the Thomas Corner Eatery. It’s also the perfect spot to people watch. Have you ever seen a triple bike before?
How about a motorised wheel chair for two? We were well entertained by the holiday passing parade.
Thomas Corner Eatery is on the corner of Thomas Street and Gympie Terrace, Noosaville. It is open for brunch, lunch and dinner and is licensed. For more information visit their website.
