Java House 1617 Hendry Street Downtown Fort Myers

Discovered this gem while walking around Downtown Fort Myers. Excellent service by pleasant ladies. Television overhead while sitting in huge lounge chairs or choose a table along the walls. Ordered iced green tea and oatmeal with bananas and cream plus a bagel with cream cheese, nine bucks total.

Iced green tea in a glass jar with handle, then rest of order appears in a few minutes. Huge paintings for sale by local artists adorn walls, plus vertical glass and wood case containing antiques on one wall. People reading books or on their laptop welcome.

Directly across from government building and next door to antique shop. Street parking only in this walker-friendly area of narrow streets. One of the nicest restaurant I have found, will be back.

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

Skyway Diner 4000 34th Street South in St Petersburg FL

Excellent service here as I enjoyed breakfast this morning. Was welcomed as I walked in and told to sit anywhere, She follows me to my table with menu and asks what to drink. Just water, thank you. Another gracious lady asks if I needed a minute? I’ll have a ham omelet – home fries or grits?, wheat, white or rye?. Home fries and rye toast is my usual.

My order appeared in less than five minutes, can’t beat that. Large interior in what seems to be a former Denny’s or another chain. Hanging flower baskets a neat touch. Few diners on this mid-week morning as I quietly enjoyed my breakfast.

Glad I finally stopped here after passing by many times, will be back.
