Cozying up in Buderim…

Thursday, September 24, 2009

One of the great things about living on the Sunshine Coast, is the amount of little cafes and restaurants that you ordinarily have to “stumble” across on daytrips or holidays!

Backofen at Buderim is a sweet little Austrian-inspired bakery, fronting onto (but elevated over) the main street. Two things make Backofen legendary – it’s food and it’s customer service. Whether you are there for lunch with the in-laws or cozying up with your significant other – the staff are attentive and respectful of your needs.

Now whilst Backhofen have a unique (and filling!) breakfast and lunch menu – what makes this perfect for a mid-afternoon rendezvous, are the stunning array of cakes and desserts. You might balk a little at the prices – especially if you’re used to the $3 slab of day-old mudcake from the local carvery, but I can assure you,  the servings are massive and worth every cent.

So massive in fact…that they’re worth…sharing. *wink*

: Apple & Ginger strudel (with cream and icecream of course). Get a slice of this (it’s HUGE) with two spoons (or one!) and a couple of Chai Latte’s (PERFECT with the strudel!). Steal yourself a spot at one of the corner tables and you have yourself the setting for a gorgeous, romantic afternoon tea.

: A little slice (or rather a large one!) of romantic Vienna.
  • Where: Backofen – 65 Burnett St, Buderim

  • Perfect For: Romantic breakfasts, lazy lunches, cozy afternoon and high-teas.
