Gwendolyn’s Cafe 2400 1st St Fort Myers, FL 33901

Stopped for lunch recently, a pleasant friendly place where they tell you to sit anywhere. Ordered a tuna sandwich with french fries, and got so many fries I could not eat them all.
Tasty dish appeared in less than five minutes.

Only two people there when I arrived, then a few more came in. The lunch rush was over by then. Next door to the Fort Myers Public Library courtyard, right downtown so really convenient. On the ground floor of an office building with only street parking.

Will probably be back

Central Library at 1301 1st Ave W Bradenton, FL 34205

Directly across from the Riverwalk and on Old Main Street, this library is a delight. Manatee County allows anyone to sign up to use a computer, no need for a library card. Stacks of free information publications published in Manatee County.

There are separate conference rooms for individuals or groups, although you can hear their chatter. Apparently the library is built on a bluff, as you have to climb several steps at the front entrance and none at the rear entrance. Security guard always on duty.

Good place to relax after taking a long stroll along the Riverwalk or stopping at nearby Main Street shops and restaurants.

Rocky Bluff Library US 301 in Ellenton

Unique building looks like a castle surrounded by ponds. Pleasant helpful lady takes me to computers on back wall, which has long line of framed drawings.

At the entrance there’s a vestibule with couch and easy chair surrounded by historic documents and photos.

About a mile east of I-75 on US 301. The Ellenton Cafe is across the street
