At the heart of the entertainment precinct in Burwood
Palm Breeze Café is located in the main hub of the Burwood CBD. It is one of the best dining venues in the area, especially in the entertainment precinct of Burwood. Palm Breeze Café includes two dining areas (indoor and outdoor) to choose from, with a fully licensed bar.
The interior of the cafe was very appealing, it was modern, sophisticated and different. It was unique and definitely appealing, one of the first things you notice as you approach the cafe, even from the street!
They serve a selection of traditional Mediterranean, Italian and Grilled cuisine at a reasonable cost, which is appealing to all kinds of individuals, couples and families that might be in the area.
One of the best things about Palm Breeze Cafe is that their menu is extremely diverse, offering a large selection of different meal choices, so there is something for everyone, no matter what your particular food style, appetite or preference is. There is a selection of the traditional cafe favourites such as pastas, risottos, schnitzels, to more of a different style with their range of char grilled steaks, ribs, kebabs, chicken, fresh seafood and also a selection of burgers.
As you can see, these are just the main categories of food they have to offer, there is a wide diverse range of food options under each category. Palm Breeze Cafe also offers a salad range as well as specialty vegetarian dishes.

If you are someone that loves deserts, try one of their award winning desserts, from the images on the menu, they looked delicious.
I went to Palm Breeze Cafe for the first time a couple of weeks ago after a University exam with a friend, and we absolutely loved it! My friend hasn't been able to stop raving about the food ever since then as we are desperate to go back.
We went for an early lunch so there wasn't anyone else there except for us, however we were treated to good service, with the staff constantly watching to make sure we were okay. We were able to choose our table, they brought us over our drinks and a menu straight away. We had such a difficult time selecting our meal because there were so many great choices to choose from, and the images on the menu looked fantastic.
I decided on the Chicken Mushroom. I can honestly say that it was one of the best meals I have ever eaten! The chicken mushroom was three pieces of delicious, tender and soft pieces of grilled chicken with amazing tasting chips bursting with flavour, cooked perfectly with the soft potatoes and crunch on the outside, topped with mushroom sauce to die for, with a side of salad.
The chicken was cooked perfectly, had great flavour, with amazing chips and the mushroom sauce on top was to die for!! It was a perfect combination and it was a delicious, tasty meal I would definitely have again. The picture doesn't do it justice! The whole time my friend and I were eating our meal, we couldn't stop talking about how delicious it was, we were already talking about coming back to try more!
I would like to mention, I thought the menu was fantastic, not just the wide variety of food that was on offer, but the way it was presented was amazing! I loved how it was set out into the different categories ie pasta, chicken, steak etc, plus at the top of each section they had some images of the food.
This not only made the decision so much harder about what to have, because you could see everything looked and sounded delicious on the menu, but it also gives the customer an idea of what to expect for their meal. I thought this was a great inclusion to the menu.
Important dining information for you to know. The entrees prices range between $5-$14, the mains prices are between $17-$25 and the desserts are $8-$13. All of these prices I believe are reasonable considering the exceptional quality of the food, and also the meal portions. They are very large meal sizes and are definitely worth the price.
The alcohol on premises is both BYO and Licensed. If you are looking to visit Palm Breeze Cafe, they are open for lunch, dinner and takeaway and open till late.
Overall, I would highly recommend Palm Breeze Cafe to ANYONE! I am going to go back many many times because I had such a lovely experience there with a good atmosphere and a delicious meal. I rate it a 10/10 and I'm sure you would too!
