Costa Noosa is our favourite cafe in the Noosa Sunshine Beach area.  Despite council regulations they welcome dogs and have areas that “comply”.  The coffee is excellent to the extent that we quite often get 2-3 kgs of their coffee sent to Perth it is that good.  Gavin, Tim and Luke are all excellent on the machine and have included a photo of Gavin roasting a new batch.

It is really difficult to take a dog to any restaurant in Noosa.  Ricky’s has the benefit of the adjacent park but I still had to park myself 5 meters away from “any eating area”.  I was lucky that I had lots of people wanting to keep me company so while I could see mum and dad I wasnt alone for long at all.  Enjoyable lunch, beautiful climate and excellent location.

Noosa has to be one of the more unfriendly places in Australia for dogs.  You can’t have your dog within 5 meters of an eating area which technically means you can’t walk down Hastings Street.  There are markets on the football field on a Sunday which are excellent but they are the only markets that I have been to in Australia at this stage that don’t allow dogs in.  Dogs have to be tied up outside! 

This photo was taken in the park adjacent Ricky’s off Quanby Terrace.  I had to sit 5 meters away from where they were eating.  This little girl fell in love with me and asked if she could take me for a walk.  I was brought up with girls of that age and enjoy playing at their pace.

0 Paw votes for Noosa as a town but have to give Ricky’s 2 Paw Votes for at least having the luck of an adjacent park that allows a dog (to be tied up).  Hence the park also gets 1 Paw vote for at least allowing me to be there.  In speaking to one high-profile Noosa restaurateur, he can’t believe the council and invited me in to sit on the couch.  Excellent restaurant but for fear of the council can’t publicly allocate 4 Paw votes for a restaurant that can’t be named.
