Survey Cafe is slightly off of Old 41. They have some amazing crepes and I always like to enjoy a mimosa while I'm there. They are located across from a small park so depending on your table to can have a lovely view

So tasty. So reasonable. Such a lovely deck to take it all in. You can get lost here at breakfast and spend the day. Hidden away but it's still quite popular.

As of late spring 2016, the Survey Cafe was closed because of a major construction project along Old 41 in Bonita Springs. Be patient and give this out of the way gem a try. The Survey was open for breakfast and lunch (counter order/served at table) and had a great selection of house made, house baked omelettes, muffins, pancakes and... More

A friend and I decided on lunch at the Survey Cafe because we had heard good things about it. Unfortunately, our experience was lackluster. On Sunday, there is only a Brunch menu available, even at 1 in the afternoon. Our mistake. My friend ordered the yogurt parfait, which was a tall margarita glass filed with fresh fruit, vanilla yogurt and... More

This little cafe is located off the main road in the downtown area of Bonita Springs, FL. It has all of the hallmarks of what should have been a great little place. Unfortunately this was not true. It's small and run by 2 people. The coffee was fine. You serve yourself ice right out of a plastic cooler. The menu... More

Whenever I need a veggie burger, I make an excuse to go to the Survey Cafe. Isabelle and her husband have a wonderful slice of heaven and treat us to some of the best flavors around. Don't miss a visit. Sit in or out. Enjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

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
