Thought I would pass the time by reviewing some of the places we eat/drink/socialise…
First up – Cafe Palazzo at Lamana Hotel.
Xavier and myself came to check out Lanes, Lamana’s 10pin bowling alley (more on that later) which was advertised at opening at 10am, but in reality it’s 11am. So whilst waiting, popped into Cafe Palazzo for coffee and hot chocolate (pic below)
We also got a K22 slice of mud cake, which they sliced in two for us to share, which is great service (and only AUD$5 each – which is OK)
The coffee tasted slightly flavoured, which is not my cup of tea and a bit watery – better than other places, but if they ditched the glass/mug and put more foam into the latte it would be really good – 5/10. Hot chocolate got rated a 7/10 – so that means we’ll be coming back 🙂
Edit: The Hot Chocolate got better as it went down, Xavier changed to a 9/10
The tub chairs you sit in are comfy as and they play very relaxing Italian music (Opera) (even Xavier was tapping his feet).
The seating is arranged around the outside of a circle with the prep facilities in the middle, which means you don’t have many neighbours
Overall – nice, relaxing, great service from the staff and Xavier looked like he could spend the day “laxin out” in the armchair :). Coffee could be better, but everything makes up the shortfall. We both agree that Cafe Palazzo is an easy 8/10
Also of note: they have homemade Gelato that we didn’t try – so maybe next time they might get a 9 😉
