I have a few friends who are vegetarians or vegans. They refuse to eat meat of any kind. I applaud them. Although I do not eat red meat or poultry, I do eat some (non-farm raised) fish. The Burger Place works for me because they have one of the best Veggie Burgers I have ever had!The Burger Place is located in Historic Downtown Melbourne, FL. It is kind of an unassuming place with a really nice outside patio. I discovered it one day riding on Rt. 192 on my way to the beachside. My boy saw a sign that said best burger in town this way! I laughed and we decided to try it for lunch.When you walk in the place you will feel like you just headed back into the late 1950s or early 1960s. It has the look of an old diner. The counter Has a large menu directly over the cashiers head. It really doe...

Since Melbourne, FL is a beachside town, visitors expect us to have great seafood. Although we have quite a few places that serve some pretty tasty seafood dishes, they are mostly larger restaurants that are designed to serve hundreds of tourists and locals.Seafood Station in Melbourne, FL is exactly the opposite! This place is a small,  with a seafood counter and some frig and freezer cabinets. What they do offer is a varied menu that will really appeal to the seafood lover in you! The tables they do have are all outside and are long picnic style tables that are meant to be shared!The food is pretty darn amazing! They offer most choices in a New Orleans style boil basket. The prices are fair Examples:Single Whole Lobster Basket: $15Double Whole Lobster Basket $26 (example photo)I will ...

 Crush Eleven, one of the most popular restaurants in Cocoa Village is moving to Historic Downtown Melbourne in the next couple of months. Crush Eleven is an upscale casual restaurant that includes a bar. The likely reason for the move to Melbourne is the more upscale feel to Historic downtown Melbourne, as well as the expansion of the bar area (from about 5 or 6 stools to around 25). Crush Eleven has a very distinct menu that offers dinner, Sunday brunch and an extensive wine list.The Melbourne location will be in the Flatiron Building at 927 E. New Haven Ave, 32901 (it is about a block away from my new office).

Today is the day I move into my new Downtown Melbourne, FL office. I love the wonderful central location. It is close to everything. As I was searching I determined that I needed to have certain requirements for the office. 1. Stay off the beachside (too far from many parts of the area). 2. I wanted to be in a "destination area"  A place potential buyers and sellers would go all year long. Downtown has many festivals, restaurants and shops.3. I wanted easy access from all parts of the County. I am excited to be in the heart of everything :) FYI: The View out my front window!

PC Keats is one of our newer restaurants in Historic Downtown Melbourne, FL. The restaurant includes a beautiful outdoor patio that faces the bustling downtown streets, a large bar area and plenty of indoor tables and seating. PC Keats opens seven days at 11am to 10pm, and Friday and Saturday night they open until 2am.They offer lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, catering, cocktails, a full bar and lots of large screen TV's throughout (to watch during a big game)!First impression is that PC Keats is trying to be everything to everyone. Is this a large sit down restaurant, a sports bar, a brunch place, a night club...The food is quite good (I have tried both brunch and dinner). The menu is very large with  a variety of food types... From pancakes to pizza, shrimp and grits to curry chicken. ...

 OK...so I must admit up front...I really like the Mansion in Melbourne, FL. They are a little bit different ...and they know it!This place sort of seems like a bunch of bars, restaurants, deli, and wine store all wrapped together...and it works! The Mansion offers two distinct bars, one on the first floor is sort of a quiet pub that is a good place to meet a client or just chat. The upstairs bar is a great place to view the river, meet on a first date or just hang out with friends after work. Although the menu is the same, the upstairs and downstairs restaurant seating areas have a very different feel (I love going upstairs  after the sun goes down to enjoy our amazing Space Coast weather).The menu itself is a mix of nice entrees (the salmon and pork chops get good reviews), burgers, s...

When it comes to breakfast in the Melbourne, FL area we have quite a few good choices. If you are looking for a place to fill you up (at a good price) and get your day going, I can give you a long list of places that will fit the bill perfectly.If you are looking for a place that is a bit different and kinda cool (and kids will absolutely love) try Backwater in Historic Downtown Melbourne, FL.To say this place is different is kind of an understatement. The griddles in the middle of many tables will signal something unusual is coming. The Louisiana Swamp look will give you the impression of a restaurant that belongs on a dirt road, backing to a bayou just off the Mississippi River!We ordered off both the regular menu (Fried Green Tomato and Spinach Eggs Benedict) and the pancake menu. Th...
