Search for the best brekkie - Berardo's bistro on the beach, Noosa
There's no going past the view at Berardo's bistro on the beach. It jumps up and grabs you by the throat through a huge window that overlooks Noosa's beautiful bay. I almost find it hard to concentrate on the food.
There are two Berardo's in Noosa, both in Hastings Street. This one is on the beach front next to Bistro C and is reached via a walkway off Hastings Street or directly off the beach boardwalk.
We joined friends for a leisurely Sunday breakfast. It was lucky they were there early as a queue quickly developed for tables. It's obviously a popular joint.
Three of us chose the toasted tropical muesli with honey yoghurt and organic milk on the side. This was a healthy and very filling breakfast - almost a struggle to finish. I was tempted by the pancakes on the specials board but sanity and post Christmas pounds prevailed and the muesli did the job.
One companion chose the poached free range eggs with smoked salmon and hollandaise on a toasted english muffin with spinach. She rated it as a medium success - one of her eggs was hard and the muffin was so lightly toasted it was almost fresh. She wasn't too keen on the way the spinach was cooked and wanted more hollandaise as well.
Overall it was an enjoyable breakfast and I'd certainly return to enjoy both the food and view again. The coffee was great.
Hastings Street, Noosa.
