We have been to Lemontree Cafe in Coconut Creek many times, mostly for breakfast. They have been open for maybe over a year now and are open for breakfast and lunch and located close to LA Fitness. The restaurant is clean and nicely decorated, we always feel comfortable eating here. It’s more modern than most of the ‘bagel/diners’ in the area and they have a few TVs set up to catch up on the news.
Lemon Tree’s menu has your typical diner breakfast fare with one exception – they have an ‘under 500 calories’ section that is a really great option. They offer lots of fresh fruits and veggies with turkey varieties of meats to keep it healthy.
The service went through a rough patch for a while, but they seem to have hit their stride once again. We were sat and drink orders were taken immediately. Our server was friendly and very attentive. Our food didn’t take too long to come out…which is good since we were very hungry.
The first order was two eggs (egg whites, yeah a little healthier) with bacon, potatoes and toast. They offer home fries, hash browns or French fries (they don’t tell you they offer them at breakfast. I just ask and they deliver). This order had Hash browns. The eggs were good ….although just egg whites, we liked them. The star of the plate was the BACON! Lemontree Cafe has the BEST BACON around hands down. It’s the thickest most flavorful we’ve had at a restaurant and hope they never change the supplier. The hash browns were also very good and seemed house made. They were not those pre-shredded ones you find sometimes.
The second order was a cheese omelet. One of us is a sucker for an omelet and we find them very good here. They out the cheese inside and layer some on top making a nice cheesy eggy breakfast. We opted for the fries with this plate. Steak Fries are the choice here and while not ‘fresh cut’ we like them. Fresh, hot and full of comfort they really fill you up for the day too.
A great diner with healthy options makes Lemon Tree Cafe a nice choice for Breakfast and Lunch.
