This gorgeous victorian home has been transformed into one of our favorite places to enjoy lunch with friends, family, or just by ourselves. The wrap around porch has plenty of seating to enjoy lunch outdoors, or there is a small dining room to eat in as well. Don't leave without trying a cupcake, or you'll be sorry!

A great place to visit and enjoy. The muffins are the best and can't wait to go back. It is located off of Ft King St in the Ocala Historic District.

A Stately Victorian Lady filled with appropriate period tables, hardwood floors, varied high-end ladies attire, gorgeous jewelry, including Gator styles, specialty children's attire, and a kitchen that offers storied cupcakes towering with flavor and imaginatively decorated frosteded tops that'll make your eyes pop. Folks can be seen carrying boxes full of those out the door, especially on Wednesdays when the bakery offers specials. But wait! There's more! Designer lunches that vary by the day prepped onsite and served with pride. They're located close to downtown for quick access to ladies and gents who appreciate antiques, fine architecture, specialty gifts, and something more than a quick burger. And yet...there's even more! Upstairs there's a spa...can you believe it?

Blakely House offers quite a bit...from shopping to eating. The shop area has tons of cute boutique type items from college apparel to fun dresses and jewelry. They have also carried a nice selection of shoes and belts which are always fun to shop for. The restaurant menu offers a nice varying selection from day-to-day. Soups, quiches, sandwichs, pasta sides and of course the desserts. Lots of scrumptous sweets. Upstairs they also have a salon and nail services. It has always been fun to head into Blakely House for a girls lunch date or to grab something before a big college game! My one and only issue at Blakely House is the service can be hit or miss. I can walk in and be totally ignored or actually have a staff member be short when inquiring on the menu items. But I have also had very nice customer service on other occassions so hit or miss I suppose. Overall, definitely a keeper here in Ocala and a great easy location in downtown off of SR 40! Give them a try!

Recently my husband, son-in-law, and a friend had lunch at Blakely House. He said the BLT's they had were terrific and the service was A-1. Since the ladies didn't go with them they brought us cupcakes. The variety they brought was suprisingly broad and all of us raved about how tasty they were. Their menu has a wide range of sandwiches, salads, soups and quiche in addition to delightful muffins, cupcakes, and other bakery items. In addition to the restaurant, you're sure to find some treasures at their gift boutique and while you're there, make an appointment for one of their salon or spa services. It's definitely worth the one block turn off U.S. 40 (Silver Spr. Blvd.). You won't be disappointed!
