AN APPLICATION has been lodged to turn one of Hervey Bay's most popular beachside cafes into a modern restaurant with a rooftop bar.

Enzo's on the Beach has launched the bold plan after 10 years of success in its postcard beachside location.

Cafe owner Enzo Andreuzzi said the time had come to grow and expand.

"Basically to provide a better service," he said.

An application has been made to the Fraser Coast Regional Council to redevelop the site into a modern dining facility, capable of hosting functions and weddings.

But despite upgrading from a small kitchen and a shipping container, Mr Andreuzzi said the cafe's unique thongs-and-board shorts environment would be retained.

"We're going to try and keep the same atmosphere - the old-school, chill-out beach atmosphere," he said.

"It's going to be really beachy."

It would be the second major development in Scarness after the Beach House Hotel opened a few months ago.

After recently celebrating its 10th anniversary, Mr Andreuzzi reflected on the growth of the business.

"In the beginning we just started with just coffees and people came in asking if we did breakfast, that's the reason we built a kitchen," he said.

"I think Enzo's on the Beach is a tourist attraction."

In recent years the cafe has escaped relatively unscathed after severe weather events such as erosion and an ex-tropical cyclone.

And the future only looks positive for the popular cafe and the Scarness district.

"More development brings more people into the area," Mr Andreuzzi added.

The application is available for public comment until October 13.

To make a submission email enquiry@frasercoast.qld.gov.au.
