Dune Deck’s Mimosa Cafe (Boynton Beach)

Posted on June 27th, 2013 · American Boynton Beach Breakfast

***** Dune Deck’s Mimosa Café, 10833 South Jog Road, Boynton Beach, Florida 33437, (561) 742-8005.

Real fast…back on February 15, 2008 Jeff Eats “did” a story on the Dune Deck–a breakfast/lunch joint located on the public beach in Lantana. That 2008 “review” is reprinted below…

Just so you know, the Dune Deck in Lantana is one of Jeff Eats’ favorite breakfast joints…I would bet that over the past 5 years, I’ve eaten something like 40 breakfasts there. Can’t remember each and every meal, but I can’t recall even-one bad outing at this joint. Its menu is packed with all kinds of breakfast stuff, salads, burgers and sandwiches. For you guys not-familiar with the Dune Deck in Lantana…it is basically a covered-outdoor patio joint right on the Lantana beach….the Dune Deck draws “tons” of people every day and in “season” the tourists make it a nightmare-wait for “us” regulars.

Anyway…

About two months ago, the folks that own the Dune Deck opened “another” breakfast-lunch joint—Dune Deck Mimosa Café in Boynton Beach. From what I can tell, they took over a bagel-joint that was there…soooo Dune Deck Mimosa Café looks “just” like a bagel-joint (and I know that “you” guys know what a South Florida bagel joint looks like).

Anyway…

The other morning, Jeff Eats and some of his buddies- had breakfast in the Dune Deck Mimosa Café and I gotta tell you that this joint has the “same” great food and service as the one in Lantana…the only difference, the Boynton joint (which is in a strip center)–doesn’t have the terrific Atlantic Ocean patio views that the Lantana outpost does. Now- nothing for nothing… we will soon find out if the “ocean views” are a necessary factor in the Dune Deck success equation. Personally, Jeff Eats thinks that the food/service alone will make the Boynton joint a huge winner…time will tell on that!

Dune Deck Mimosa Café is open 7 days a week 7:30am-4pm.

Here’s the February 15, 2008 “story.”

***** Dune Deck Cafe, 100 North Ocean Boulevard, Lantana Florida–(561) 582-0472

Over the years, I have eaten breakfast in this breakfast-lunch joint at least 20 times. Located directly on the beach, this tee shirt/shorts joint has great food, great service and beach atmosphere which is why we all live down here in South Florida. Don’t miss this one.

    I’ve been to the Lantana location numerous times for both breakfast and lunch. The food is terrific and the outdoor setup on the beach is great.
    Didn’t know until this morning that they now have another location. Will definitely give it a try. Too bad it won’t have the great Atlantic Ocean as a backdrop.

    If this one is anything like the one in Lantana it will be a great place for breakfast or lunch. Been going to Lantana for many years and it is very good.

    Jeff,
    I have been going to the Dune Deck for years.
    It is terrific.
    There use to be another terrific one right down the road on the beach called John G’s.
    John G’s move to another location off the beach and it was never the same again.
    I went there twice for breakfast and that was that.
    I’ll give Dune Deck in Boynton a go. Let’s see if it can overcome not being on the beach.

    Don’t rush here.

    The big disappointments were the entrees. One was a chicken brochette with salad – but the chicken was dry and overcooked. The other was a berry salad with grilled chicken – this time they achieved a notable, but undesirable, feat of producing some pieces that were overcooked (nicely charred though) on the outside yet were not much past raw on the inside. This is not smart for chicken. Sure enought, the price of the salad was removed from the check.

    It was a pity as the appetisers were both excellent, being grilled calamari and the gazpacho.

    Service was keen to please, though the server disappeared for quite a while, just when we were discovering there is no wi-fi here, another disappointment.

    Premises are spacious in this unexceptional, plaza location but pleasant enough inside.

    All in all, cannot overlook the poorly executed chicken entrees, so will not be returning

      notice jeff and his buddies ate something like 40 breakfasts, not lunch like you apparently did.

    Food is ok.
    The ocean at the original is what makes that one special.
