I decided to check out a new restaurant that bravely opened up DURING THIS PANDEMIC ... It's called The Summerlin Cafe.
I asked if the owners were in and met with John & Nick Drivas, they have been in restaurant business some 30 years, starting and growing up in the family business up in Tampa... now open for Breakfast and Lunch at this time and are scheduled to add dinner in October... God willing.
Serving breakfast all day with coffee, tea or juice included... offering specialty skillets, omelets, pancakes, French Toast, Crepes, Waffles and all the traditional dishes as well. They post daily breakfast and lunch specials everyday on their Facebook page, the day I was there they had Crunchy Coconut French Toast as their breakfast specials. (see picture) Salads come with a free bowl of soup, always made from scratch and all sandwiches come with one side..
They purchased the building that the old Sunflower Cafe Restaurant was in, and spent months remodeling, the location feels squeaky clean and wide open ... Located at 11370 Summerlin Square Dr. on the very outer edge of Fort Myers Beach on the road that parallels
Summerlin Road by the new Wal-Mart and they want everybody to know that they are practicing all CDC guidelines and social distancing.
John and Nick are Greek so you'll find some great traditional Greek dishes like Gyros, Traditionally cooked on premises or my all time Greek
favorite .... Chicken Souvlaki, (see picture below) a chicken shish kabob marinated in lemon, garlic, oregano and Greek Seasonings, laid over pita bread with tomatoes & onions with homemade tzatziki sauce on the side. and many others dishes with an added Greek flair.
So come on out and help support this new venture....
