Yellow Dog Café is in Malabar, Florida, near Melbourne, on the Indian River Lagoon. (US #1) Lunch there is a wonderful experience. The view is delightful, the food is mouth-watering, and the service friendly and skilled.
On a recent visit, we both ordered the Lady Dog, a sandwich on foccacia loaded with spinach, artichoke hearts, red peppers, portabellas, and havarti cheese. They each came with a side of yucca fries and a pickle slice. Delicious and filling! We shared a scrumptious cup of crab bisque. With two Old Scratch beers, the bill before tip was $32.
There is a full bar, both upstairs and outside, if beer isn’t your cup of tea. We were too full for desert. After dining, or before, stroll outside to see the lagoon up close, or hit a few golf balls, or relax in the outdoor bar. Get your feet wet. Walk to the end of the pier.
Dinner is also served, and we are planning another visit soon to sample some of those items. The menu includes roasted duckling, rack of lamb, and pecan crusted mahi mahi. It’s a laid back, Florida hospitality, excellent service, and superior food that waits at the Yellow Dog Café.
