The Palmerston cafe covers everything from ice cream, brunch to beer. They have a spacious outdoor patio, large screen TVs and cozy tables for two inside.
I visited last Saturday during the World Cup. Their weekend brunch includes a number of breakfast options like poached eggs, panini, quiche and a range of desserts. Our waitress highly recommended the Spicy Fried Egg Panino ($10) so that's what I decided to order. With fried egg, spicy pancetta, arugula, ricotta and salsa rossa, it wasn't too spicy but had just enough kick.
The sweeter side to brunch includes blueberry pancakes ($10) and Nutella crostini ($8).
On weekdays, they have a grill menu that features their local burger ($14) or a top sirloin steak sandwich ($16). They also have an espresso bar, single shot ($2) smoothies ($6), and gelato ($3.50). Beer and cocktails are also offered. During the evening they play Spanish guitar and live music, and hope to expand to dinners soon.
The Palmerston is connected to Provenance regional cuisine, a mini grocer that offers naturally raised and sustainable seafood, meat, poultry and dairy. The two establishments share a kitchen.
