Restaurant Review: Cafe Coconut Cove in Melbourne Beach Florida
Some of the best places to eat are not on
the beaten path...they are a little out of the way...and sometimes even a
bit of a struggle to find. When you do get there you remember why you
were willing to take the drive! Cafe Coconut Cove in Melbourne Beach, FL is just such a place.
You can pass by this place two or three
times before you find the smallish sign that tells you to drive in...but
upon entering you will be hooked! Cafe Coconut Cove sits out on the
Indian River with some of the most amazing views and maybe the best
sunsets on the East Coast of Florida (suggestion...schedule you dinner
so you can sit at your table and take in a sunset...you will be glad you
The menu is authentic German with a bit of a Florida twist so be prepared for some truly unique Space Coast eats.
Here is my suggested menu for first timers:
out with the potato pancakes...they are very good and the apple compote
is a perfect dipping sauce! For your entree try the Rouladen Plate...you get One
Bratwurst, Red Cabbage, One Rouladen (Thin Slice of Beef, Rolled and
stuffed with seasoned meat and onion, braised in its own gravy). It is
served with a House Salad, and a Potato Puf. My Mom would on rare
occasion make me Rouladen growing up (when I was not eating Italian
food) and I still love them. Finish off your meal with an Apple Strudel
Ala Mode...this is the best strudel on the Space Coast!
After your inevitable food coma you will be
planning a return trip...a little bit for the sunset views...but mostly
for the best German food on the Space Coast!
