“Great find in downtown Ft. Myers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is just a block or two from the main downtown area and is well worth that one block walk. Nice atmosphere, top notch service, friendly staff. Have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner here and am always very pleased with everything. As other readers have stated, this is one of Fort Myers' hidden gems!!!

“Great for breakfast, best omlettes in Fort Myers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Food is great, even the coffee tastes like real coffee, rare for Fort Myers. Staff is friendly and Gwendolyn herself keeps the place going in a hands on manner. On holidays there is a buffet with an omelet station, at other times order from the menu.

“Real good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

The staff here are great, make you feel like your eating at a friends house! Great food,different twists on old favorites,and fresh new ideas and flavors! The soups are always hot and delicious and change frequently.The owner always takes pride in the food and it is worth a trip off the Beaten path to get what you pay for! Not a super fancy place,but nice enough to relax and eat some tasty food!

“Nice little find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

It's definitely a hole-in-the-wall and difficult to find, but worth finding. It's not much to look at, but the food is good. The best thing is that there isn't a burger anywhere on the menu. Salads, sandwiches, soups. I love Gwen's heart and her mission and am willing to support her all the way.
