GC&M News ducked into Vianta Espresso and Wine Bar at Beerwah for a quick meeting that somehow turned into breakfast and lunch.
Time flies in the cool and relaxed confines of Vianta.
The establishment, at 70 Simpson Street, is open seven days from 6.30am to 4pm except on Fridays when it stays open until 10pm with dinner, drinks and live music regular features as patrons wind down for the weekend.
The cafe also has regular art exhibits often with creative local artists showcasing their talents with a new exhibit opening on the first Friday of each month. Surrounded by art and book cases filled with good books you are made to feel at home as much as treating yourself to an outing. As the three of us spread out across one of their large dining tables we ordered the eggs florentine, breakfast wrap and muesli bowl.
The poached eggs were perfectly cooked and with the rich hollandaise sauce and salmon were filling and delicious. Likewise the breakfast wrap was nicely presented and tasty. Our health conscious colleague ordered the muesli and with its mixed berries and natural yoghurt said he was very satisfied. Two hours later and in need of more sustenance – and an excuse to keep eating we tried the vegetable frittata, fries and Thai Beef Salad.
The salad with grilled beef strips with a Thai aromatic dressing with the salad was a nice light option as was the frittata.
We also loved their homemade smoothies and juices which are made to order.
For those looking for a fuller lunch meal their steak sandwich with chips or fish of the day are top options.
