After a long haul run around Pine Island from Matlacha, we approached the calm waters and slower speed of Cabbage Key. We idled past boats and slips, and kedged the personal water crafts into the small sandy-grassy beach. Walking up the hill, we met the tortoise the children were feeding. The three of us sat at an outdoor concrete mosaic topped table. A cheery server, Kaite S, welcomed us quickly. In but a short time, the young lady-with energy abounding-delivering the famed 'cabbage creeper.' The slushy, sweetness was just the perfect cocktail to sip under the shade of the table umbrella. Form our view of the table on the hill we enjoyed a view of the water and approaching vessels. Katie S. chatted with us a bit on the 'what to knows.' She was delightful, attentive and happy!!
Our orders arrived; 2 cheeseburgers and a grilled fish atop greens salad. My husband and niece raved about 'the most delicious' hamburgers EVER. My fish was also delicious. Food proved worthy of the adventure! Cabbage key was a food oasis in the water. We ended our lunch with 2 desserts, a typical key lime pie, and a chocolate-carpel-sweet-frozen-yummy thing. We rolled down the hill, after all that food, to the t shirt shop for a souvenir (great stocking stuffers) , before the water ride back. We are looking forward to returning, hoping Katie S. will be there, too.More
