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.

Denny’s on US 19 North in St Petersburg FL

Showed up around 11 for brunch, few people there. Walked in and stood in front of empty counter waiting to be greeted, as moments turned to over a minute a guy walking out said they were all on break as he smiled past. Just then a reserved waitress appears and leads me to a booth with a panoramic street view facing west, then hands me two menus.

Seconds later a friendly waitress with a charming accent named Rachel appears, tells me what they have to drink. Coffee, please, which was reloaded twice. When she reappears about two minutes later I ask for the senior menu I had seen at another Denny’s, she points out it’s on the last page, silly me.

Ordered the breakfast with eggs and cheese, which includes two scrambled eggs with cheese plus four sausage links and two gigantic pancakes. This combo appeared about five minutes later and kept me stuffed for hours. She twice more came by asking if everything was all right, I’m giving her an A+ on customer service.

Restroom was clean and well-stocked. Sadly that panoramic street view was marred by dirty and fingerprinted glass inside and out, somebody PLEASE clean it. This was the low point on an otherwise pleasant visit.
