My friends and I love to try local restaurants that are privately owned. We we not disappointed here. The food was very good and the atmosphere was very nice and relaxing. The menu had interesting choices, not just the same old, same old breakfast. While I had a delicious omelet, my friends tried some of the other unique items which... More

We were greeted by the new owner of the Survey Café who took our lunch order. Not only was the service excellent, lunch was fresh, tasty & plentiful! The charming atmosphere enhanced the dining experience. Along with Lunch, Dinner will be offered sometime soon. Don't miss this lovely dining experience!

Our son pointed us to the Survey Cafe after his canoe trip on the Imperial River. He was right, we enjoyed our visit very much. The food was great, the environment outstanding and the owners took a real interest in our experience.

Great porch to sit on and sip coffee and tea while we waited for our breakfast which was amazing. Homemade French pastries (chocolatin was delicious) and biscuits. Fairly new owners so there will be new additions to the menu, too. They went out of their way for special items, you could tell they take pride in their food. And they... More

Survey Cafe is slightly off of Old 41. They have some amazing crepes and I always like to enjoy a mimosa while I'm there. They are located across from a small park so depending on your table to can have a lovely view

So tasty. So reasonable. Such a lovely deck to take it all in. You can get lost here at breakfast and spend the day. Hidden away but it's still quite popular.

As of late spring 2016, the Survey Cafe was closed because of a major construction project along Old 41 in Bonita Springs. Be patient and give this out of the way gem a try. The Survey was open for breakfast and lunch (counter order/served at table) and had a great selection of house made, house baked omelettes, muffins, pancakes and... More

A friend and I decided on lunch at the Survey Cafe because we had heard good things about it. Unfortunately, our experience was lackluster. On Sunday, there is only a Brunch menu available, even at 1 in the afternoon. Our mistake. My friend ordered the yogurt parfait, which was a tall margarita glass filed with fresh fruit, vanilla yogurt and... More

This little cafe is located off the main road in the downtown area of Bonita Springs, FL. It has all of the hallmarks of what should have been a great little place. Unfortunately this was not true. It's small and run by 2 people. The coffee was fine. You serve yourself ice right out of a plastic cooler. The menu... More
