Laid back cafe by Pereybere beach
Palm Beach Café is a friendly and laid back café located next to the public beach at Pereybere, just a couple of kilometres north of Grand Baie. I stopped off there for refreshments one afternoon during a visit to Mauritius in February 2008.
There are a few tables inside the café, but I preferred to sit outdoors in the pleasant seating area, beneath the shade of a large tree, with wonderful sea views.
The menu features a selection of salads, sandwiches, omelettes, sweet and savoury pancakes, ice creams and a selection of hot and cold, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. It is the ideal place for a light lunch when spending a day on the popular adjacent beach. I opted for:
Crepes des Iles - Cost: 140 Rupees / 2.60 GBP
A couple of pancakes, drowned in rum and passion fruit juice (but mainly rum!) and topped with sultanas, currants and ground coconut. Very tasty!
500ml bottle of Sprite - Cost: 40 Rupees / 0.75 GBP
No ice, but served straight from an ice cold fridge freezer. Many places charge the same price for a 330ml bottle…but here you get a 500ml bottle!
A friendly, laid back café…right by the beach at Pereybere. Recommended!
