Where do you think is the best fish and chips on the Sunny Coast with the best seafood platter/basket for two? We'd love to try some new ones - that's if we haven't tried them already. Our criteria for this choice was just the food. What about fish and chip shops in unique locations or with stunning views? Share them in a comment below.

Choosing a restaurant because it's named after one of your favourite songs doesn't really sound like a good idea. But in this case, I got lucky as it turns out my favourite song's title is also the name of my now favourite fish and chipper on the Sunshine Coast – Me and You
. My partner and I have a bit of an obsession with fish and chips shops – we always have to try the local fish and chips place wherever we go and try all the ones in that area if we stay there long enough.
Located in Maroochydore near the beach, Me and You
doesn't look like a real special place – it's clean and accommodating but that's not what you go for. Like many other cafes scattered along the coast, it's set in a way to look like a mini cafeteria where you can choose all kinds of hot goodies, not just seafood but chicken nuggets, potato scallops etc. But it's the quality of the food that we loved and keep coming back for. We always order the same thing - a seafood basket for two or couples. It comes with battered or crumbed fish, crumbed prawns, scallops, calamaris and a large serving of chips like any usual fish and chipper would offer. But the difference is the seafood tastes fresh (well fresher than most of the others we've tried) and for lack of a more fitting description, their food is absolutely yummy.
Make your Me and You
experience into a romantic date. Even if you're just hunkering for some good fish and chips, instead of eating at the cafe, opt for takeaway. Just around the corner is the beach and a great place to make a picnic. Go a step further, and prepare a picnic blanket, some drinks (or get them from the cafe) and maybe a dessert to share at the end and make a great time out of it. Everyone knows that picnics are great for couples, but it's also knowing the best spots and places where to get the best food. My partner and I highly recommend Me and You
to be the caterer of your next picnic.
