I'm a regular at Cafe Bleuu and have seen it go through some big changes recently. It is still all the good things everyone else has said, and now even more so. The place is as clean as a whistle and freshly painted inside in bright colors that match Roxy's outsize personality. Personal touches include being greeted by the chef when you come in. Roxy has updated her menu with some top-shelf dishes. My favorites are Mediterranean Shrimp and Margarita Shrimp. Roxy does seafood better than anyone I've ever had the pleasure of being served by. I've eaten in gourmet restaurants that charged twice the price and been disappointed. Roxy's cooking never disappoints. You will feel welcome and appreciated, and will leave looking forward to returning soon.

Well this place may not look much and it sure ain't posh. A bit like somebody's slightly offbeat front room, if I'm honest - and maybe not everybody's "cup of tea" but Roxy made us very welcome - she is a real character. And very hands on too - she was cooking the food around the corner almost immediately after she took our order!

We had the famous grouper, mine was Parmigian-crusted and wings to start. All the food was superb.

Sadly, the weather was too wet to eat outside on the terrace, as there's a fabulous view of the river and local pier. But the home-cooked food and great hosts made the evening for us. Wouldn't hesitate to go back. Somewhere we'll remember fondly!

Like my title says, this place is charming, and a little funky. The food is out of this world though. Definitely not what you would expect for such a small place in the middle of nowhere. It is a little hard to find but worth the time...

This funky little restaurant in tiny Welaka, Florida sits overlooking the St. John's River. We love to sit outside on the not fancy deck and look at the beautiful river view. Bleuu (the Chef) makes the best hamburgers around and wife, Roxie, are great folks and fun to talk to. The actual name of this place is "The Palms Cafe Bleuu" if you are looking in Yellow Pages for a phone number.
We always take visitors there and they always fall in love with the place. A very casual, friendly place. You won't be sorry you went.
