Iconic Noosa eatery Flo’s Crêperie opens new store at Wharf Mooloolaba

Foodies and Francophiles can look forward to another unique dining option at The Wharf Mooloolaba with Flo’s Crêperie being the latest venue to open its doors at the emerging food precinct.

Flo’s opened on Sunshine Beach Road in Noosa Heads in September 2021 and quickly became a favourite among locals and tourists with its vast array of savoury and sweet French crêpes, coffee and cocktails.

Owners Florian and Michelle Guillemard, who have operated crêperies for more than ten years, said the goal was to highlight the quality and versatility of crêpes and opening a second Flo’s at The Wharf Mooloolaba was a no-brainer. 

“We’ve always loved the Wharf and thought if we ever opened another Flo’s that it would be the place to be,” said Florian, a French native from Bretagne (the birthplace of the French crêpe).

“The Wharf is such an iconic location for locals and tourists alike, being just 200m from the beach, and who wouldn’t want crêpes before or after a beach session?”

“We are excited to give families something different – and delicious – to the usual kids’ meals, and it’s great to have options for many dietary requirements – vegetarian, gluten free and vegan. We will be serving the same complete menu for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner – but it’s the dinner crêpes customers love most.

“Once you get your head around crêpes as a dinner staple, there’s no turning back. People love discovering the savouries as a new dinner option – and they also love the fact Flo’s offers both savoury and sweet crêpes.

“We see it all the time, people order their main meal and are already so excited about dessert, salivating about what’s to come. That brings the excitement and build-up for the entire evening,” Florian said.

Karen Hugg, general manager of The Wharf Mooloolaba, said in the space of just twelve months, Flo’s Crêperie has created a huge impression within the Noosa culinary community and she was thrilled that The Wharf Mooloolaba would be their next Sunshine Coast location.

“It’s a fantastic addition to our already extensive dining offer here at the Wharf, there’s nothing else like Flo’s Crêperie on this end of the Sunshine Coast so it will certainly drive more traffic to our precinct. I am sure it will quickly become the breakfast, lunch and dinner location of choice for locals and visitors alike,” Karen said.

Michelle said Flo’s savoury crêpes, known as galettes, are made with buckwheat flour, meaning they are naturally gluten free.

“You don’t feel too full after a galette – so you can easily fit in a sweet crêpe (or two) for dessert. There’s really nothing else like it, where you can have the same menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with an equal amount of savoury and sweet options,” Michelle said.

Popular galettes include the king prawns and La Saint Jacques (locally caught pan-fried scallops, buttered leeks, cheese and garlic-macadamia crumbs) – as well as French classics like Flo’s Alpine Cheese (raclette cheese, bacon, potato and caramelised onions) and the more traditional Complète (ham, cheese and egg).

Flo’s also offers galettes with an Aussie twist, like the Après Surf (bacon, egg, cheese and avocado) and Hinterland Harvest (spinach, feta, mushroom and avocado).

For the sweet crêpes, the flambées – where the crêpes are lit on fire at your table – are a huge hit. Most people make it a double (or regret it if they don’t). “The Suze, our version of crêpes Suzette, and the Bananas Foster flambée crêpes are some of our best sellers. People love watching and filming the theatre aspect of crêpes being lit on fire in front of them.”

Flo’s takes both reservations and walk-ins, and it has indoor and outdoor seating. Monthly specials are also on offer; September’s specials menu features Argentinian-style prawns, the Club Med (halloumi, chorizo, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, red onion and cheese) and La Ferrero Rocher (Nutella, banana, hazelnut crunch, Ferrero Rocher and whipped cream).
