There’s a place in Boca Raton called the Grand Lux Cafe. This place exists in many other cities as well, but I discovered it here. It boasts exceedingly large portions, amazing blended drinks, and elaborate decor. I went twice — once for a fruity drink and good company, and a second time for brunch (and more fruity drinks). Here’s what I found.
The Hawaiian Smoothie (pictured at top) is the perfect Floridian beverage. It’s blended, it’s a tropically orange color, and it has fruit on the rim. Plus, it’s delicious! The Mango Ice Swirl (above) is also amazing, although slightly less to my taste (meaning slightly more sweet and less tart than the Hawaiian Smoothie). However, it makes a splash with its presentation!
Of course, there’s also the actual food. I went to Sunday brunch, and the Banana-Pecan Pancakes (above) were perfectly fluffy with a comforting topping of cinnamon, warm bananas, and chopped pecans. Even though this was a chain restaurant, it was a great dining experience!
