The Palms Cafe
I was meeting a new coach and giving her the low-down of GOTR while enjoying a new-to-me restaurant. The Palms Cafe in Salisbury is a locally owned cafe that serves soups, sandwiches, salads and wraps. Most importantly they serve gelato and...sorbeto! Yes, please!
website to check out the menu. The endless list of options left me with high hopes for finding a satisfying vegan meal. I ordered the Palm Vegetable Wrap with a cup of vegetable soup as a side. The light and fresh, yet hearty meal was exactly what I needed on this gloomy day. Isn't Labor Day supposed to be all sunshine and blue skies?
All through lunch I kept the gelato in the back of my mind, making sure to save plenty of room. I tucked half my wrap to go in a box and anxiously awaited the cool and creamy treat.
Before deciding, I tasted several flavors. While their was only one vegan flavor, I felt it necessary to do a quality check on the Sweet Potato flavor and the Pistachio. Both were excellent and I cried a little inside knowing they were not vegan. In the end, I enthusiastically chose the Mango Sorbeto and never looked back.
Despite the awkward circa 1990's Florida Chic design, The Palms Cafe is an excellent dining option. I can foresee many, many visits in the future!
