Old Florida Feel

Excellent fresh tasty food in an old Florida style house just off the main road, US 41. If you seek the Old Florida while you eat, check out this place. Relaxed with friendly staff and atmosphere.

This out of the way cafe has an unusual method for a restaurant. It's not exactly full service but there is a wait person to take your order but you're expected to retrieve your own drinks; so the waitress does not bring your coffee or soft drinks to your table. I found this to be odd. You place your food... More

Had dinner with my husband and another couple who recommended it. Food was fantastic. We had rack of lamb, grilled salmon, escargot, caesar salad. All were perfect. Best meal ever. Only downside is small beer and wine list however we all found something to fit our tastes. It is tiny but there is a large patio with coloured lights in... More

My wife and I ate here for Easter breakfast based on positive comments from others we had met. It did not disappoint. We had a nice table out on the deck on a lovely day. Both dishes were well prepared and unique. We will definitely go back.

Tried this cafe today - Bonita's detour route makes its location more visible to potential customers as it is off the beaten path. Enjoyed their pork barbecue sandwich. Served on a toasted hoagie bun with cheese and a side of chips - large enough to share. We will return to sample more from their menu. Love the quaint atmosphere and... More

We ordered two breakfast biscuit sandwiches and coffee. Had to ask for a cup for the coffee, self serve, and if we wanted cream, it was in the refrigerator across the room. Only one other customer in restaurant. We received our sandwiches about 15 minutes later. Was a frozen egg Patty sliced " virginia" ham cheddar cheese, ( not melted),... More

Visited Survey Café over Christmas holiday in the area. Started with mimosa and had a wonderful brunch. The service was great. We sat on the porch outside and were treated with a guitar player.

Really good food, wonderful staff, fun local ambiance. Gives a good idea of Bonita springs history, since Survey is the original name of the town.

A charming restaurant tucked away on a side street in Bonita springs, offering breakfast and lunch but on weekends has recently opened for dinner with a French flare. A limited menu but everything. We ordered was cooked perfectly
