    Serenity Garden Teahouse: Take tea or do lunch @ this charming little place

    by sunlovey Updated Feb 18, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mom, grandma & I play dress up at Serenity Garden

    Serenity Garden Teahouse exists in an old little house, each room is decorated delightfully with whimsical & chi chi tea party-like touches. Doilies, lace and toile galore! It's very much geared for the "ladies that lunch" set. Getting together with your gal pals, etc. Little girls will love it!

    They offer a complete lunch menu with soups, salads, sandwiches etc. And a very nice "high tea" package with champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries, salad or quiche, tea sandwiches, scones, petit fours, etc. Good selection of tea varietals.

    The service is very kind and attentive.

    The clientele is mostly women, of all ages from 4 to 84. But men are welcome of course!

    Something fun and unique: They have a "dress up" trunk full of frilly old hads and boas that you must partake of!!!! It totally takes you back to being 8 years old.

    Make sure you make a reservation! Price per person is based upon ordering lunch and tea, not the tea package which runs around $20 per person.

    Favorite Dish: We always have their "high tea" package.... it is SO much food though, ALL delicious of course, but you won't need to eat for the rest of the day....

    City Cellar: Delicious, great atmosphere, extensive wine list

    by sunlovey Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    image from Web site

    City cellar is hip.... with indoor and outdoor seating, posh booths & a long swanky bar which faces a rather impressive glass-front wine celar-

    Lighting is dim, dress is casual to ultra sexy depending upon your age and what time you get there. Outdoor tables are the place to people watch... also, from the outside table to can hear the live bands that often play downstairs. (City cellar is located on the second floor of City Place.)

    Menu is good... a great selection of appetizers, salads, pastas, meats, sandwiches & pizza- plus they always have great specials.

    Wine list is huge with a great variety of types and prices.

    Favorite Dish: MY FAVES-

    Appetizers:
    -Gnocci alla vodka with asiago
    - Roasted red pepper hummus, baked feta, eggplant camponata, olives & flatbreads
    -Calamari

    Salads:
    Pinenut crusted goat cheese and babygreens
    Spinach, gorgonzola & spiced pear salad

    Pasta:
    Sea scallops, ricotta gnocci, truffle oil, wild and domestic mushrooms

    Husband's favorite entree:
    Roasted duckling with sundried cherries, onion risotto in a pinot noir sauce

    Price per person is based upon ordering a salad & entree, or an appetizer & salad, without wine.

    Bizaare Avenue Cafe: just south of WPB in Lake Worth... totally unique!

    by sunlovey Updated Feb 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    a table inside Bizaare, sorry the pic is so blurry

    Because downtown Lake Worth is chock full of antique shops you might mistake Bizaare for but another- a peek in the window and you'll spy a melange of overstuffed couches, armchairs, coffee tables and kitchen tables- plus funky & unique art and trinkets... go on, step inside, you've encountered a lovely little eatery! Open for lunch and dinner (closed on Sundays) with a great menu of scrumptuous soups, crepes, salads, tapas, gourmet pizza, sandwiches and "Gourmet Sharables" as they call them. Settle in to a cozy chair of your choice (except on weekends when this place is PACKED) and order yourself a nice bottle of wine (their selection is quite nice) or an ice cold beer. I can almost guarantee you'll find your mouth begin to water as you read the menu....

    Should you arrive when the restaurant is totally busy, give the hostess your name and make your way to the cozy little bar area, the bar tenders ( usually named Jennifer & Valee) are super nice-

    If you happen to like ANYthing you see in the restaurant enough to want to take it home, most likely you can! Much of the wares (including the tables, chairs etc.) are for sale!

    Open until midnight on the weekends
    And until 11:30 on weekdays

    Favorite Dish: Pleeeease, try the Caramelized Onion & Bleu Cheese Fun-Do & the Baked brie appetizers/tapas if you like cheese as much as I... you will not regreat it. Both are oh so delicious!

    I love the Portabello Salad Pizaare (pizza)- a portabello mushroom, baby greens and red onion salad atop a crispy mozzarella and parmesan cheese pizza crust -

    I always ask for a side of their garlic dressing for this...

    They have GREAT carrot cake....

    Mom's Kitchen: Down home breakfasts in a diner type setting

    by sunlovey Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mom!  their logo, I think you can even buy Tshirts

    This place is definitely off the beaten path when it comes to touristy areas of the West Palm area....

    Mom's kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner but we recommend it for breakfast.... This quaint little place is packed, so expect to wait a bit before you're seated. Just give the cashier your name first so you're on the wait list. There are benches out front of this little establishment and newspaper machines so relax while you wait.... Once inside there is a bar-type seating area with swiveling stools and there are regular tables. The clientele includes families, truckers, all sorts of people...

    The breakfasts are CHEAP, good sized and classic- Expect to eat for under $6 unless you order the T-bone steak and eggs or something of that nature.

    The atmosphere is in my opinion, so typical American. The decor is kitschy but cozy. The waitresses have worked there for as many as 23 years.

    Favorite Dish: I always have the mushroom and cheese omlette with hashbrowns and a biscuit.... mmmmmm!

    Suite 225: Swanky sushi & Asian fusion great outdoor seating

    by sunlovey Written Feb 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Serving up sushi and Asian-fusion selections in a chic and somewhat swanky atmosphere, sit at the bar lit by big candles, at the outside tables, romantic and off to the side, or inside, dimly lit and sophisticated.

    The service is fine, they let you be/don't rush you.

    This restaurant is located in the tiny downtown-type area of Lantana (just south of West Palm) and is seconds away from the Intracoastal and the ocean. So take a stroll heading east after dinner for a nice view....

    Favorite Dish: I like their arugula salad and crispy shrimp appetizer as I'm not a big fan of sushi.... Husband and friends say their sushi is deeeelish!

    Tequilla Cancun: Family owned Mexican restaurant w/ good margaritas

    by sunlovey Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    a peek inside

    This off the beaten path Mexican restaurant is a bit on the cheesy side decor wise, with a typical Mexican theme and mint green booths... but the owners and staff are so friendly, the margaritas are so delicious, the food is good- particularly their queso and guacamole! We just always come back! And we always recommend it to others...

    They make their margaritas with a wide variety of tequillas, many flavors, on the rocks or frozen. But I recommend going with a pitcher of the classic margarita on the rocks.

    They have a funny cute little bar in the back with a few tables too.

    Favorite Dish: I always order a bean burrito with a side of guacamole and sour cream.

    Husband eats the steaming fajitas and loves them....

    The price per person includes a margarita or two!

    Legal Seafood: Best chowder.

    by kierk1 Updated Jul 28, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Friendly, not really posh but a bit classy. Still, you can come in casual clothes and eat inside or outside. It's in City Place which is a large two story, multi-street outdoor shopping complex. Loads of other shops, restaurants within walking distance, as well as a cinema.

    Favorite Dish: The chowder is absolutely delicious! They also have around 4 types of oysters.

    Leila: Belly dancers-swanky atmosphere-middle east tapas

    by sunlovey Updated Apr 3, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The entrance to Leila

    Atmosphere is second to food for me when it comes to enjoying a restaurant. While I love Middle Eastern food, most Middle Eastern restaurants here lack atmosphere. Not Leila. It sits on the corner of Dixie HWY and Datura, a bit off the beaten path, since it's not on Clematis and not located within CityPlace. The interior is cast in soothing blue is dimly lit and swanky...

    Wander out to the back patio area for a table surrounded by palm trees. Expect great music and a periodic visit from a belly dancer. Smoke the hookah pipe (if that's you're thing) after a delicious meal. And when it comes to your meal, I suggest you take advantage of their excellent tapas-like mezze menu...

    Favorite Dish: What we had...
    Feta puffs- delectable! seriously, puff pastry bites filled with feta and mint
    Falafel- made well here, crispy, delicious (ground chick peas, onion, spices)
    Grilled Halloumi Cheese- oh my gosh, heaven. unique texture, tangy taste
    Baba Ghanouj- a classic, great with their warm pita bread
    Ratatouille- Eggplant, tomato, and onion lightly stewed with olive oil
    Red Pepper-Walnut Tapenade- blended with garlic, lemon and pomegranate, so excellent
    and of course
    Hommous- theirs is creamy and divine

    Do make reservations when coming for dinner, this place is extremely popular, deservedly.

    La Bonne Bouche: Buttery delicious pastries etc. w/ french attitude

    by sunlovey Written Jul 26, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    a little map for ya

    La Bonne Bouche has been around for a while... but fairly recently its experienced a beautiful makeover. Outside: a tricking fountain amidst blooming bougainvillea. Inside, you'll find black and white check floors and large beautiful mirrors and petite oil paintings lining a long wall set up with booth and chair type seating, so so French. ;-) I'm impressed by the nice wood bar as well.
    BUT the best thing about La Bonne Bouche are its baked delights. mmm mmm mmm. They've gotten it right.

    The proprietor is French, his wife is American. He's a bit aloof but he doesn't mean any harm. La Bonne Bouche has been featured on the Food Network.

    Favorite Dish: Try a raisin pastry, ooh and the almond paste pastry and the quiches, so spinachy good!

    I think they'll be serving up dinner soon... they had a wine list written up on a back chalk board. I'll keep you posted.

    Flannigan's: Great ribs and seafood.

    by kierk1 Written Jul 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I always visit this restaurant whenever I'm in West Palm. I absolutely love the ribs! It has separate bar and restaurant areas, loads of televisions unobtrusively showing sports programmes and the beer is cold. Good selection of local and foreign beer. Staff are friendly and helpful. Kids are welcome and there's a kids menu too.

    Favorite Dish: The ribs are great and the fried shrimp are too. It has a good diverse menu from burgers to steak to ribs, chicken, wings andon to seafood.

  • Teapots & Treasures Cafe: A Delightful Place to Exhale!!!!

    by Teadiva Updated Jul 5, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to Teapots and Treasures with a friend for lunch. I walked in and was enchanted by it's charming ambience. We were greeted promptly and sat in a cozy alcove. The seating areas were separated by hutches and dressers filled with wonderful treasures that I found out were all for sale. Every detail was creative and inviting. The menus were brought to the table with a basket of tins of tea. We were told to smell them to see what tea we wanted. All the teas were loose leaf and delightful to smell and experience. We ordered our lunch and were invited to shop around. As we poked around all the nooks and crannys had unique gifts and jewelry and just about anything we girls love. Our server was helpful and friendly, which I found out later was one of the owners. Everything was served on vintage mix matched china and each piece was delicate and lovely. The lunch was generous and delicious as well as the "Decadent" Florida sunshine cake we had for desert. I can't believe I had not stopped at this shop before. This cafe is a real treasure and I can't wait to go again.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered the Chicken Salad Stuffed Tomato with the Tomato Soup. The Chicken Salad was unlike any I have had before. It had grapes and nuts but had a slight sweetness that was just delicious and the Tomato tasted like it was vine ripened. The Tomato Soup was rich and creamy and served in a teacup. My friend had Quiche with fresh fruit. Her quiche was homemade and wonderful and the fruit was fresh cut melons, strawberries and pineapple. The menu included sandwiches, wraps and salads that were impressive as I saw them delivered to other tables.
