Cedar’s Cafe – Melbourne

Since we’ve begun eating out more regularly around here, we generally steer clear of ordering salads. For obvious reasons.

When trying a new a restaurant, we always ask for their best+most special+most popular dish. And (unfortunately for our waistlines), salads don’t usually make that list. Except at Cedar’s Cafe, an intimate, upscale Mediterranean spot in Melbourne.

This summer they’re featuring a slew of fresh, light salads that are all bursting with Mediterranean flavor. Our favorite was the Eggplant Stack, probably because we forgot we were eating a “salad” with this one ..

 A blended lamb bison + mushroom burger with “toasted almond oats mushroom-white chocolate blackberry granola” + red onion + arugula + blue cheese. Hard to beat the originality here!

Located in a Melbourne strip mall, this place is unexpectedly luxuriously cozy. Dim lighting, fantasticly thought-out dishes, and friendly staff. We loved getting to talk with the chef here. She has such a passion for creating fresh, original, innovative dishes, and she’s on a mission to put Brevard on the “foodie” map here in Florida. A mission we can definitely get behind. Stop by Cedar’s and tell them we sent you!
