We asked our team where their favourite healthy Sunshine Coast Cafes are. We then rounded their answers up into this top 5 post.
Here are our top picks for Healthy Sunshine Coast Cafes and why we love them.
If you know our team, you would know that a few of us have a sweet tooth, so yes, we have you covered for healthy (and yummy) treats. Just because it’s “healthy” doesn’t mean it has to taste bad, right?
We’ve included cafes that serve up organic and gluten free options. Most of them have raw options too. As long as they sell delicious, real, whole food, with natural ingredients … then they can make this list!
Let’s jump into our Top 5 Picks for Healthy Cafes on the Sunshine Coast.
(oh and we’ve included some embedded images from their Instagram accounts, so be sure to follow them there).
5 Healthy Sunshine Coast Cafes you Can’t Miss!
1 CK WholeFoods
On any given day of the week, someone in our practice is bringing in healthy food (or coffee) from CK’s. Drool.
Check out the deliciousness from their instagram account:
What we love about CK Wholefoods is this:
- The range of raw, organic and fresh meals and treats
- Fabulous coffee (some of the best on the coast)
- Spacious seating – the place has a great feel and a cruisy, casual vibe so it’s a nice cafe to spend some time drinking coffee and chatting with friends. It was also the place Dr Gray met his wife, Donna! It was a nightclub and bar back then, but he thinks that fun fact is exactly why the coffee tastes so good.
- A huge range of food options- they do all day breakfast and lunch and have a range of juices, smoothies, and all things Kombucha!
- Lots of lunch, snacks and treats… you can enjoy them knowing they are good for you!
The bonus is that CK Wholefoods is not that far from our practice so it tops the list of our Healthy Sunshine Coast Cafes. It’s just close enough for us to do a coffee run!
How incredible does this look? We’re serving our new dessert special this weeks designed by our very clever chef here at CK’s! This plate of heaven is our “Pink Pitaya infused @coyo_is_coconuts Panna Cotta. Your soul will go somewhere special eating this, I’m tellin’ ya! 🤤😍 Tag a fellow foodie who would inhale this 😜 #foodporn #foodart #mooloolaba #sunshinecoast

2 Cafe Nurcha
Our next pick is Cafe Nurcha at The Coastal Wellbeing Centre in Maroochydore. They have an extensive vegan menu and so many savoury and sweet treats!
If you are looking for awesome smoothies, juices and meals then look no further than Cafe Nurcha!
Oh and they have a range of vegan groceries too in case you want to take something home to cook. But do yourself a favour and let them cook for you! They are good at it.

3 Kunara Cafe
The Kunara Organic Marketplace has remained one of the most popular healthy Sunshine Coast Cafes for years now.
They make healthy, natural foods – from breakfast to lunch – and great coffee and desserts. Their cafe is certified organic and they cater for gluten free, vegan, vegetarian and paleo diets.
Let’s let their instagram images do the talking:

And they do takeaway too!
4 Raw Energy at Peregian Beach
If you want to take a drive and visit the beaches up north, then we highly recommend Raw Energy in Peregian. It’s one of our favourite Healthy Sunshine Coast Cafes.
We know there are Raw Energy franchises closer to our practice, but the Peregian location is a clear winner because they have one important thing going for them.
Awesome gluten free pancakes.
Dr Gray’s kids agree that this fact alone, makes the Peregian site stand out the most!
Oh and they do a pretty mean corn fritters with eggs, bacon and avocado too.
Speaking of pancakes….
We got those Monday morning pancake goals 😝@rawenergyperegian 🍇 #fruit #pancakes #glutenfree #pancakestack #sweet #love #balance #eat #coeliac #foodie #brunch #lunch #yummy #fitness #fit #lifestyle #vegetarian #motivation #lunch #allday 🍇
