Description

A postcard depicting the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Minutemen Causeway in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Bernard's Surf was a restaurant located at 2 South Atlantic Avenue and originally founded by Bernard Fischer in 1948. In 1965, Fischer's nephew, Rusty Fischer, took over operations. Fischer sold the restaurant in 2006 and Bernard's Surf closed in 2010. In 2012, the building was purchased by Luke Johnson, who has expressed plans to rebuild the restaurant.

Ocean Realty and Teght's can also be seen across the street from Bernard's. Ocean Realty has since moved its operations to 3201 North Atlantic Avenue. Teght's was replaced by Missile Lounge, a topless bar, by the late 1960s. The building has since been occupied by a variety of gift shops, piercing businesses and tattoo artists, and restaurants.
