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.
Overall it was an enjoyable breakfast and I'd certainly return to enjoy both the food and view again. The coffee was great.
Best tip: They also have a cold cabinet with rolls ready to go which you can take and eat on the beach.
Hastings Street, Noosa.
