A great escape for those on a budget
If you have ever been to Palm Beach Florida you will remember the white beaches, turquoise waters and lots of palm trees. So, when I visited Palm Beach Café I was surprised to find how they simulated this exact experience.

Palm Beach Cafe
A spectacular view of Perth's amazing coastline


The Palm Beach café can be found right on the water front along right next to the Rockingham Yacht Club. In fact, you may find a few cafes along this strip.

Food for those on a time budget!


Palm Beach café show cases a range of "quick bake" foods and sweets. They also offer a coffee and cake special for only $8.00. There is no time stamp on this offer so I cannot confirm that it is something they offer on a regular basis. Needless to say, we took hold of this opportunity while we had it.

Palm Beach Cafe
An experience on a budget


As my kids were being treated to an "adventure" they soon warmed up to the idea of ordering their own piece of cake. The owner was extremely helpful and offered to substitute the coffee for a hot chocolate. I was surprised at her generosity as many cafes that I have been to, in the past, have refused this simple exchange.

An extensive selection of cakes and sweet things


With an unobstructed view of the sea, we settle in to enjoying cake, coffee and the amazing weather. We could not have chosen a better day which presented us with no wind, nice warm sun and clear air.

The very large portion of cookies & cream cake!

Large portions of apple pie and carrot cake.


We had ordered an apple pie, carrot cake and cookies & cream cake. For $8.00, we were given extremely large portions. Of course my kids had no problems with this. The cookies and cream cake had a thick shortbread base topped with chocolate chip cookies. It was very creamy (as per the name) and was very rich. The apple pie was presented with a healthy portion of cream, and it probably was the best piece out of all three choices. The carrot cake was just a little on the dry side but with a great cup of coffee it was enjoyable.

A Hot Chocolate with a View!


The experience, overall, was fantastic. I guess it was a combination of good service, good view and great weather. I would recommend this café to anyone wanting a little "time out" on a budget. The bonus, of course, is the view!

Gosh all that cake and coffee looked like it was to die for, will put that one on my 'bucket list' for sure.

Went along to Palm Beach Café yesterday to have lunch, only to discover with disappointment that my two friends who are gluten free had absolutely no options on the menu. We ended up having to leave and go elsewhere.
