Got a late supper here on a warm January evening. This is a local place right next to the Everglades City motel. My wife and I both had cheeseburgers and they were excellent. Everyone was friendly and prices were reasonable.

We stopped here on our Florida trip, we traveled for 5 days, and this was the best breakfast and the friendliest staff we came across! The waitress was really nice and the food was excellent. Would recommend!

We ate dinner and breakfast here and the food was very good, reasonably priced, and the service was excellent! I recommend you try the biscuit and gravy if you are here for breakfast and the Blackened grouper for dinner.

We ate at this little gem last night. The blackened Jumbo Shrimp were divine. Great food and great service. Looking forward to going back for lunch today. Would recommend for anyone visiting Everglades City +++++

You have to try the fish & chips! It was wonderful! We even splurged and ordered the key lime pie! Again, it was wonderful!

This maybe the only place you could have hot breakfast in the small city. It turns out to be very nice and both service and food are very good. From the signs you could also have lunch and even dinner there!

We found the people here to be the nicest we encountered anywhere in Florida. The restaurant always seems busy with locals, which is a good sign, and the food was simple and tasty.

Our Motel was having trouble with WiFi so they sent us here. Would have gone for breakfast anyway. Most of Everglade City was having breakfast here too. It was nice, lots of coffee, pancakes and eggs good. Don't try the sausage...

After City Seafood basically blew us off because they were soon closing, we headed over to the Island Cafe where we were welcomed and fed in style. We ordered two of the Captain's Platters which boasted frogs' legs, shrimp, oysters, grouper and more. Plus we...More
