Palacinki Cafe

DT@Palacinki Cafe - Ettalong Beach#2

Open on weekends and public holidays, the undercover Ettalong Markets is more a relaxed shopping complex than a market,as we know it. Selling all manner of things, there are several restaurants and cafes, a variety of vendors, plus a cinema. I see the blackboard advertising ‘Devonshire Teas’ and follow it over to a cafe that reminds me more of a kiosk, servicing tables in the middle of a courtyard. There are lots of sumptuous looking cakes in the cake cabinet and the large plain and date scones are stacked high on glass cake plates. The serving with tea or coffee is for one scone with either cream and jam or butter, and is inexpensive. It’s served on a styrofoam plate with a plastic knife and feels very disposable. In keeping with the theme, perhaps the cup and saucer should be disposable too! Unfortunately my date scone is microwaved far longer than necessary, losing it’s flavour. The cream is very light and the jam stock standard.




Tea: A good choice of T2 teabags served in a pot.

Price: $$

Overall: A good place to take a rest from shopping.

Location: Ettalong Markets, Ocean View Rd, Ettalong Beach NSW 2257
