WHERE TO EAT
There are so many great places to eat in Palm Beach and wow, the vibes make you feel so special.
pizza al fresco
Hidden away in a little courtyard off Worth Avenue, definitely grab an outdoor table under the palm trees and string lights. Split a verde salad and share a pizza with your friends. I highly recommend the margherita. They have a great wine and cocktail menu so you can have a great Aperol spritz on a hot day.
Since this is such a popular restaurant in New York, having one in Palm Beach really makes it feel like home. It's located at the beautiful Royal Poinciana Plaza, making it the perfect spot to top off a day of shopping with a caprese salad, pasta, espresso, and tiramisu.
After your lunch at Pizza al Fresco, pop around the corner to this cute little gelato shop. They have all the classic flavors and a really good selection of non-dairy options too. Don't forget to ask for your gelato to be topped with a wafer!
Once known as Hamburger Heaven (an old haunt of Lilly Pulitzer's), Surfside Diner is a cute spot with vintage vibes a few blocks away from Worth Avenue. You'll find all the classic menu items here from blueberry pancakes and eggs benedict to cheeseburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches.
Another favorite from New York (and Las Vegas, that location is incredible), Café Boulud is located in the beautiful Brazilian Court Hotel. There's a jazz pianist in the lounge area and overall, a really classic, luxurious vibe that will make you feel like you've gone back to another century. As with any of Daniel Boulud's restaurants, the menu is beyond. There's a prix fixe lunch and a la carte options, too. I highly recommend the eggs benedict, substituting tomatoes for the ham.
WHERE TO SHOP
Beyond the obvious shops on Worth Avenue and department stores like Neiman Marcus & Saks Fifth Avenue, there are so many perfect little boutiques where you'll find the prettiest bohemian dresses and colorful accessories. Plus, three of the stores are neighbors!
This store is absolute heaven. It's a tiny boutique across from Pizza al Fresco where you'll find a selection of Aerin Lauder's beautiful home decor. There's even a beautiful outdoor patio!
Next door to Aerin, this store is your go-to for beautiful resort wear. There are endless amounts of gorgeous bohemian maxi dresses, beach cover-ups, and tropical accessories. Lots of blue and white!
The third store in this perfect trio off Worth Avenue is the Margaux shop. You may have heard of this shoe brand as it's a blogger favorite. The shop is beautifully designed and makes every shoe feel so special.
the church mouse
A short walk from Worth Avenue (towards the Surfside Diner) is this great little consignment shop that's a go-to for people like Aerin Lauder and Celerie Kemble. It's no wonder because I quickly found a beautiful vintage picnic basket and ice bucket here. Not to mention the fact that there was a white The Row blazer for $175 and several pairs of vintage Louboutins for sale under $50.
royal poinciana plaza
A short drive from the main stretch of Palm Beach, this is the most beautiful shopping center with checkerboard walkways and palm tree shaded seating nooks. You'll find a Vespa store, multiple art galleries, and stores like Hermès, Magasin, Cynthia Rowley, Saint Laurent, Assouline, and Joey Wölffer. I could spend a whole day here!
