Continued quaint, relaxed Bristish experience.

Friendly greeting from Amanda our waitress and other staff. Decided to stop for a light lunch. The Coronation Chicken was the choice of the day. A delightful mix of chicken, and curry seasoning. Delicious!

We were just here overnight and asked for a breakfast recc at hotel front desk. Wanted something in walking distance. Desk clerk immediately said United Cafe. We later checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor and, while the negatives were outnumbered by pleased diners, there was a distinct pattern in the 1 and 2 star reviews. Shoulda listened to them! My...

Nice outdoor spot right on the street but we do not intend to go back! The Scramblewich looked so good on the menu…two scrambled eggs and Swiss cheese on a croissant. The eggs were a rubbery glob and had absolutely no flavor. We added a side sausage to the sandwich which was also very bland. I told the waitress and... More

One of the nice things about United is their varied menu from the ordinary fair. Whether it is the Waffle, the Energy Bowl or the Scottish Egg your in for a delicious treat. The Reuben for lunch is one of the best I have had. The Reuben is my favorite sandwich and one I test everywhere I go. The desserts... More

This little bistro was a perfect end to our trip to Fort Myers. The breakfast options were perfect and the service was excellent.

This is one of the worst places to eat in the downtown district. Do not waste your time or your money! Unfortunately, the only thing going for this place is the half decent wait staff that is ever so changing. The food is OK but most definitely over microwaved, just plain boring to look at and even worse to try... More

My husband and I were downtown with friends before our theater reservations and chose this restaurant nearby for a bite to eat. Although the place was crowded, we did manage to find a table inside. Even though they were very busy, we were waited on promptly by a very friendly and efficient server. Although the menu is limited, I was... More

After taking a tour of the historic Burroughs home only block away, my wife and I walked the downtown area of Fort Myers looking for a place for lunch. There are several all within a few blocks of each other but we decided to try the United Cafe Bar and Bistro. Limited lunch menu but the food was very good... More

We have enjoyed going to the United Cafe for quite some time. One of the things we are enjoying most is that Andy Morgan the owner and John the chef have been willing to change up the menu. These changes with Cameron's help with presentation have only served to improved the tastes of the food. This is a must stop... More
