“Terrific Breakfast and Lunch”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Visited Gwen's at the last moment on Sunday and was greeted as if family had just walked in. The menu is basic but creative. Omelets that had a variety I had not seen before and enjoyed. One of the best I have had for quite a while. The breakfast sandwiches were different , two of our party had them and thought they were terrific.
The staff was on top of there game with coffee and drink refills. Definitely will be back to enjoy.

“Local cafe”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

Quaint little café; we had a great lunch. It's where all the locals obviously go for lunch. We had just landed and were looking to grab a quick bite. The sandwiches we had were homemade and good. The service was fast and friendly, we were on our way.

“Sorry, not impressed”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We recently visited here for lunch; the food was good but the service was extremely slow. The restaurant was pretty empty, and is was lunch time. Because the food was good, we came back another day for breakfast. Again, not really crowded so we had some hope. The service was a little better, but the food was worse. We ordered one of their specialties, a "scramble". What we got was a very dry and overcooked omelette. We really wanted to like Gwendolyn's because of what the owner stands for. Sorry to say we will not go back.

“Great find in downtown Ft. Myers”
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!!!
