Bit of a ghost town feel the day we visited. Wasn't sure what we were walking into, but the staff were friendly, the food was excellent and great value (Pizza's were amazing). Don't hesitate in walking into this place.

The lady that booked our airboat tour recommended the Island Cafe to us, so we went there for lunch while waiting for our tour to start. The casual diner had good food and friendly service. I enjoyed the fish tacos.
