Coolinary Cafe

You know the best meal you’ve ever eaten? Well take that and times it by 3. Coolinary Cafe is riding high on my list of best foods ever at the moment and it’s going to take a lot for someone to knock it down.


They don’t take reservations (unless you’re a party of 6+) and it’s tiny inside so expect to wait for a table. We waited about 20 minutes and were seated at the bar. In my opinion, this seat was perfect! We had a clear view of the open kitchen and watched every meal made fresh.


The concept here is farm to table and they have a list of  local farms they use hanging up in the restaurant.


After perusing the menu we decided to start with the Crispy Fried Florida Shrimp ( artichoke, cashew and green chili goat cheese aioli) and the Lump Crab Salad (jicima, mango & avocado).


I don’t eat fried foods often, but when I do — I make sure it’s worth it. These are worth it and I would eat these every single day even if it means I gain 20 lbs.


The salad was light and they surely didn’t skip on the lump crab (or avocado!), so I was obviously a fan.


Adam knew what he was ordering for dinner before we even left New Jersey, Boneless Southern Fried Chicken with Jalapeno Cheddar Waffles.

You know I am not a meat eater but I had to try this meal. Every single table had at least one person (if not all) order this and it was SUCH a good choice. The sweet yet spicy waffle was absolutely to die for and like nothing we have ever tried before.

 I ordered a blackened cobia sandwich and requested more of the goat cheese aioli to spread on the bun. I couldn’t get enough of it!


Macaroni & Cheese was our side of choice. Melt in your mouth, cheesey, ooey gooey goodness. It was the perfect southern dish and had so much flavor! We almost ordered vegetables ” to be healthy” but then I thought while were here, we should indulge. Good choice Alyssa, good choice.


After loving everything we ate there was just no possible way to pass up dessert. See, I told you I needed that sugar detox! We ordered angel food cake with vanilla ice cream, caramel topping, blueberries and whipped cream. Everything including the ice cream and whipped cream was homemade and it was surprisingly light and didn’t leave us with that uncomfortable, un-button your pants in the car type of feeling.


Next time we go to Palm Beach, Florida this will definitely be one of our first stops. If you’re ever in town, you need to make it one of yours too!
