Bonita Springs in general has an old, small town feel. The Survey Cafe (diner) certainly fits, retrofitted into an old home just off main street USA. Very charming, simple cafe food. Recommended for breakfast or lunch if you're in the area. A relatively tight space to dine in but that's part of the charm / vibe. They have a deck... More

Staff acted like we we putting them out by being there. Woman at the counter Didn't greet us other than to point and say the menu is behind you. Biscuits were dry, kind of par for the course.

We are always looking for lunch places and found this gem on Trip Advisor. Now that season is over, we walked right in and were waited on immediately. The Panini was excellent and the pea salad that accompanied it was really good. My husband had the turkey sandwich and the tomato basil soup. All very flavorful. Our expectations were exceeded...

I had one of their wraps, nothing special or out of the ordinary. The ambiance is pure old Florida, an old house that has been remodeled to serve as a restaurant. It's cute, and you can sit outside on the terrace, weather permitting. Don't expect a lot of room indoors!

You forget your in Bonita but it's on the way to the beach. However, great to catch on the way back from the beach to get out of the sun and enjoy a good meal!

This was a great little spot my wife found, the construction around the place made it difficult to get to but it was worth the wait. I had the Cuban, a friend had a turkey sandwich and wife had an omelette, everything was good.

If you are looking for a relaxing lunch spot (or breakfast) with a sunny deck, you must try Survey Café. This hidden charm has some of the best sandwiches and soups in Bonita Springs. I especially like the Cuban sandwich. Your order will be taken by a happy pleasant person at a counter inside. You'll be given a cute marker... More
