Steak ‘n Shake 8950 Colonial Center Dr Fort Myers, FL 33905 Your review

Dropped in for breakfast just before Christmas, it was early morning so few people there. I was immediately greeted and seated, then ordered their silver dollar pancakes and hash browns.

In a few minutes get three pancakes much larger than silver dollars, plus a few round hash browns. Opted for lemonade this time.

So glad this chain is around, enjoy their retro-diner decor and ambiance.


Lakeland Public Library FL

First time here last Saturday, it’s across the parking lot from the Polk Museum of Art. Huge place with pop machine at entrance. Several desks with outlets for laptops and whatever.

Well laid out open feeling to this library. Impressive reading area with glass window facing Lake Morton across the street. A pleasant place tor work or pleasure.


Best Miami Hotel at 5959 SW 71st Street Miami FL

European-style hotel here, I believe it’s owned by a Spanish company. Generous free breakfast from seven to nine. Two blocks to South Miami public library. Two blocks from South Miami Metrorail/Metrobus station on US1. Across US1 is the Sunset Plaza mall plus assorted shops and restaurants along Sunset Drive.

Remember to add $8 a day for parking plus $2 a day for a safe plus room rate. Piano in lobby plus ornate glass elevator with view of courtyard. Friendly Hispanic staff. Hotel entry on 71st Street and garage entry on 70th Street. Must grab phone at garage entrance, hotel desk will answer and then open gate.
