Nantucket meets the Florida Keys at the breezy Pelican Cafe in Lake Park! Husband and wife team Chef Mark Frangione & Karen Howe are originally from Greenwich, Connecticut so when they transformed this landmark 1940's Lake Park cottage, they designed it with a charming coastal New England touch.
Founded in 2008, Pelican Cafe offers multiple cozy indoor dining rooms, a great bar, and veranda seating on its open-air, pet-friendly wrap-around patio where twinkling lights in the evening make it feel magical! It's the kind of restaurant you fantasize about.
Mark is a Navy veteran with a passion for warm hospitality and delicious food, inspired by his Italian parents. In fact, his Mom's Sunday Gravy is a taste of Italia! Karen and Mark understand what a great dining experience is all about and all of their dishes are freshly prepared with top quality ingredients and made to order.
Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch, the menu offers everything from Eggs Benedict, Frittatas and Belgian Waffles to Gourmet Panini, Tuscan Pizza, 12 oz Black Angus Burgers, Veal Chops, Duck L'Orange and an exceptional Parmesan Crusted Filet of Sole. Don't miss the Shrimp Cocktail. Trust us on this one. Trust us on the desserts too. Pineapple Upside Down Cake, homemade Tiramisu and a Gluten Free Belgian Fourless Chocolate Cake are just a few of the delicious, homemade sweet treats that you must save room for! If you have dietary restrictions, Mark will accommodate every special request possible. Did we mention Karen's homemade Decadent Donuts? Yes. That's a thing. They're served compliementary during weekend brunch.
Their extensive, hand-picked wine list is second to none and the FULL BAR bar is stocked with your all of favorite spirits. On nights when there's live entertainment, Pelican Cafe is THE place to see and be seen! Grab a seat at the bar or enjoy full dinner with a great view of the show. Dancing is sure to break out, so bring your dancin' shoes! (Call for entertainment schedule or visit their Facebook page)
Mark and Karen have fallen in love with South Florida, and to give back to the community, they donate annually to various Palm Beach charities in honor of Karen's mother, Janet Howe. This very special couple will make you feel like a friend. All you have to do is visit once, and you'll know that you've found something very special.
