Island Cafe

305 Collier Ave
Everglades, 34139
Cute local cafe. Not too many food options on Everglade City so we decided to try our luck here. We were not disappointed. Typical fried foods on the menu. We did see gator and frog legs but where not feeling adventurous. We played it safe and got a burger and chicken tenders. The food was good except the coleslaw. It was in a little jar and looked really watery so we stayed away. The service left a lot to be desired but it's to be expected when you have a teenager in a local cafe as your server. Island Cafe isn't a high end fancy restaurant but they are still a good spot for a quick bite.
BIOHAZARD!!! Found a glob of spit in my drink! Called Fla Health Dept and Police. May be shut down. I'm a retired Marine... maybe they hate Marines???
There aren't a lot of food choices out here in Everglades City. My son went on a fishing trip here last spring and has been here for breakfast. We came here for lunch after an airboat ride. The menu includes lots of fried options and sandwiches . My son had the gator bites and enjoyed them but was disappointed that there wasn't a mustard dipping sauce. I had the chicken strips and fries. The chicken strips were nice and crunchy on the outside. The fries were seasoned which I personally don't care for. My husband had the fish and chips and says it was lightly fried not battered but we're very good and fresh. My daughter had the meatball sub and the meatballs were huge. She says they were okay. The service was a bit slower than I would have liked but they were busy when they seated us. Our waitress was pleasant and gave my husband and I iced teas to go with no extra charge. In all a pleasant experience.
