Just had an excellent lunch at the Alcazar cafe, in the historic Lightner Museum. Great service. The cafe is located in the old Alcazar Hotel swimming pool. Largest indoor swimming pool of the day.

After my second order for a cup of tea they brought me hot water as soon as my cup was empty. That's a great service!!! And there is a man who plays classic music on his guitar as background music... beautiful!

We stopped here for lunch and enjoyed it. The venue is interesting being that it is in the old swimming pool. So you get a feel for the history of the building. The food was very good. I would go there again.

The cafe is predominantly a lunch restaurant, with very limited dates for dinner. It is well worth the wait if you're not able to make it for lunch.
