On Friday we headed to Palo Alto to visit Coconuts, a caribbean restaurant off of University Avenue.
We found a nice, friendly spot that would be a great place to come back for dinner. But since we were there for dessert, lets get to it!
Susan ordered the Coconut Crème Brulee ($7.50). Which was a decent creme brulee, but with out too much of an underlying coconut flavor. We thought just a bit more coconut flavor would have been better, as it was unless we knew the name we probably wouldn’t have guessed there was coconut in it.
I ordered the Sweet Potato Pudding ($6.95) which was the hit of the evening. It had a nice texture, more like a cake, and not too much sweetness. We really found it tasty. We felt that it would have been perfect with a little ice cream however. It was good enough that we would contemplate returning just for more.
We enjoyed the very friendly, family atmosphere of the restaurant and were made to feel at home from the minute we walked in the door. We are anxious to return to try the curried goat which just happens to be one of our favorite things to eat.
