Went into Micanopy to find something to eat in the afternoon and the Old Florida Cafe was the only place open serving a late lunch. Was a great afternoon for Chili and they have exceptional chili. Outdoor seating was very pleasant. While you wait you can play Trivial Pursuit with playing cards at each table. There were a lot of other excellent items on the menu to make the selection difficult. Their corned beef sandwich was a perfect accompaniment with the chili.

We always eat here when visiting Micanopy. We have never been disappointed by eating at this little café/antique/souvenir store. You can sit inside and enjoy the tables with glass tops and old items displayed inside them or you can eat outside, relax, and watch the world go by. The prices are good and the food is excellent, love their Cubans and Rubens. If you haven't stop by here you really should, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Quite simply, the best sandwich shop I have ever eaten at! I live in DeLand, about 90 minutes away, and I often ride my motorcycle to Micanopy just to eat lunch here. Large sandwiches on freshly baked bread with delicious meats. Oh yeah, and reasonably priced.

There aren't many places to eat in Micanopy but 12 of us managed to squeeze in at the few tables and enjoyed our lunch. I lived in Miami for several years and their sandwich riivaled those in Miami.

The Old Florida Cafe is a great place for a relaxing lunch. I took an out of town visitor on a pleasantly cool afternoon. We were greeted as soon as we entered and told that the day's special was Aunt Sherry's chicken salad. We ordered the version with a chicken salad-stuffed tomato and went out to sit on the porch. The atmosphere was so pleasant and the lunch plate was beautiful, served with a side salad of wonderfully fresh ingredients. My guest was impressed and amazed by the fact that the lettuce and tomatoes were in season, fresh from Florida. After a leisurely lunch, she insisted on getting ice cream, which we enjoyed while sitting on the massive porch swing. What could be better on a quiet afternoon in Micanopy? Truly an old Florida experience.
