Leaving the mountains of beautiful snow here in Toronto to visit with friends in Pompano Beach this week. We'll also be driving up to Delray/Boynton Beach on one of those days and will otherwise have a car so happy for any recs in this stretch. We love great food, prefer casual to fancy, love warm and gracious service. One of my friends is a bit hard of hearing so can't go anywhere with too much noise in the room. Reading through the posts on this board, my short-list so far consists of Cafe La Buca and Tacqueria Dona Raquel in Pompano and The Grove and perhaps Scuola Vecchia in Delray. A few questions:
- any place to get a great americano or other espresso-based drinks? The closer to Pompano the better but I will definitely travel for great coffee.
- any place you'd recommend where we can sit by the water and have a lovely (preferably light-ish) breakfast or lunch? If not the water, then a pretty courtyard or other special setting?
- is Fish Shack recommended for lunch?
- favourite spot(s) to grab an ice cream cone?
Thanks in advance.
