Gator Bites, Issue #034 - Crazy Olive, Dempseys Diner, NE Moorings, Captiva
June 16, 2013

Have You Been to These Cape Coral Restaurants?!

Well, our summer pattern of rain every afternoon has started! We still have plenty of sunshine in the morning, and after the rains pass.

In this month's issue of Gator Bites, I feature 3 restaurants, 2 of them new to the scene and 1 of them the longest running restaurant in the Cape.

I also have several pages about fun things to do while you're on Captiva.

The Crazy Olive offers great American dining for families, and a bar and nightlife scene for adults with live music every night on their outdoor patio.

Located on Pine Island Road, Crazy Olive is centrally located for easy access from anywhere in Cape Coral.

In the same shopping plaza as Crazy Olive and sharing the same owners, is Dempseys Diner.

All your diner favorites are served in a 50's retro-style restaurant, with Elvis, records hanging from the ceilings, and polished chrome.

Get breakfast, lunch, and dinner all day long!

New England Moorings has been in continuous business in Cape Coral for 26 years, so they must be doing something right!

I love the wacky Florida beach tiki decor, the absolutely delicious food, and the generosity and friendliness of Mooring's owner!

Now for the fun stuff, plus Captiva real estate and vacation rentals, and info such as map, weather, and Sitesearch on Come to Captiva:

Pic 'O the Month

While you're in Florida, you'll have to eat Gator Bites at least once and the beast I've ever had are served at New England Moorings. He makes them from the tail ....... the best part.

I goofed and didn't take picture of them, but here's a photo of the shrimp and fried green tomatoes, also very tasty appetizers at Moorings! :)

For those of you who have read Weird Cape Coral, but haven't found the treasure yet, here are some hints:

Look for 3 places in the ebook where it says "treasure" in blue. Click on it, because each is a link to one of 3 pages on my website.

Each page is a place that I think is a treasure in Cape Coral.

Once you figure out the 3 places, email me from my Contact Me page and I will send you a password to a secret page with more information about buying real estate here in Cape Coral.

Have fun.......if you need help -> Contact Me
