Welcome to Ipswich CMC Rocks!

It’s CMC Rocks this month when 20,000+ country music fans come to Ipswich for the best round-up of country music anywhere right now.

In honour of the stellar line-up of musicians and the fans in town for CMC Rocks – along with the good folk making this annual sold-out blockbuster happen – we’ve put together a handy list of breakfast options and matched each one with a song by a CMC Rocks artist. Welcome to town y’all!

Oikos Cafe Ipswich

Cold pressed Sunshine Juice at Oikos Cafe with eggs

The breakfast: Sunshine Juice (watermelon, passionfruit, pineapple, orange) with eggs your way at Oikos Cafe Ipswich.

The song: Watermelon Moonshine Lainey Wilson (USA).  We love how watermelon tastes like summer.

Moselle’s Cafe + Restaurant

Moselles American breakfast

The breakfast: Moselle’s have an American Breakfast, which embraces all the things we love – fried eggs, pancakes with butter and maple syrup, bacon, has browns and chipolatas.

The song: Raised on Country by Chris Young (USA), turn it up loud and have yourself a big American-style breakfast, it will get you through those big nights at CMC Rocks.

 Rafter & Rose

Brekkie roll at Rafter and Rose

The breakfast: Bacon and Egg Roll at Rafter & Rose.  It comes with house made bacon jam, bbq sauce, bacon and a fried egg on a Turkish roll – delish.

The song: This is how we Roll Tyler Hubbard (USA).  Tyler Hubbard, one half of duo Florida Georgia Line has released a new solo album, but we remember this banger, perfectly paired with a brekkie roll!

Dancing Bean Specialty Roasters

Dancing Bean coffee

The breakfast: It’s all about the coffee here at Dancing Bean Specialty Roasters. So we would be pairing the Old Sea Dog, coffee and American Whisky infusion – made on beans freshly roasted out the back in this converted warehouse, with anything from the menu. Or maybe a sweet treat from the cabinet.

The song: Something in the whisky by Jeb Gipson and Megan Moroney (Megan will perform at CMC Rocks QLD in March) (USA) – we’ll have one more whiskey coffee thanks!

St Shoebill

Savoury mince at St Shoebill

The breakfast: Spicy savoury mince at St Shoebill Cafe.

The song: Nate Smith (USA) World on Fire. This dish is slightly spicy, it might set your mouth on fire, but in the best possible way!

Elderflower Cafe


The breakfast: The eggs benny with either bacon, avocado or halloumi hit the spot at Elderflower Cafe.

The song: Want Mogan Wade (USA). Well, when you know what you want, you just gotta go for it, and there’s no point in resisting the eggs benny!

Rosewood Hotel


The breakfast: Country lambs fry with bacon at The Rosewood Hotel.  The breakfast club is open on weekends at this country pub.

The song: I see Country Ian Munsick (USA). Can’t get a more country breakfast than lambs fry!

Fourthchild Cafe, Bar and Restaurant

Lotus Biscoff Pancakes at Fourthchild Cafe

The breakfast: Biscoff Lotus Pancake at Fourthchild. It comes with Lotus crumb, Biscoff sauce and mixed berries – chef’s kiss!

The song: Thick Thighs Priscilla Block (USA). Life’s too short not to enjoy carbs – well at least every once in a while!

Queens Park Cafe

French toast at Queens Park Cafe, mmm

The breakfast: Queens Park Cafe French toast, comes with mixed berries and ice cream.  Add on bacon for Canadian flair!

The song: MMM Girl Chase Rice (USA).  Because mmm.
