Nice, very nice
Through a series of unfortunate events, Thanksgiving this year was not at home. To complicate matters, the decision to dine out was made at the last minute. And finally, just to find good places in and around Cocoa is, in my opinion, difficult. Following several “we’re full” replies from those serving on T-day, I happened across The Mango Tree. Most likely, we will go back for a normal evening meal as it was very good. I’m spoiled so I won’t say it’s the best, but certainly when compared to other choices, this is a welcome relief. And, for Cocoa, it’s right up there at the top of the list.
Their holiday meal was pre-planned and they did, after all, take reservations, but they still managed to run out of butternut squash before we ordered. The substitute of broccoli and lentils did not set well with me, but that’s a personal thing.
I’m going to say that the food was pretty average but nice nonetheless. The atmosphere is very pleasant and the service was spot on. The entire staff, given the circumstances of the day, should be lauded for their conscientious, courteous, and professional service.
Yes, The Mango Tree is worth a visit when you are in the Cocoa area.
Parking is difficult but there is a lot at the corner of 1st and A1A. Or, if it’s available, you can park right in front on A1A. The restaurant is on the left side of the North bound lanes of A1A.
