Spanish Gardens Cafe We simply can’t say enough about this divine restaurant. There is no view so go after sunset or go for lunch if you need to get out of the sun (or do lunch take out!). You will find find beautiful fresh salads (do order the white bean salad), and simply extraordinary fare created by Jose and served by Oscar.
Ziggies Yum! That is all – just yum! Great place that you will want to take a shower for. And put on a clean t-shirt. Okay – wear shoes as well. They are open for lunch and dinner and have heavenly food. They actually have a lot of meat on the menu so keep it in mind if you have had enough fish sandwiches.
Morada Bay / Pierre’s I think everyone who visits Islamorada makes their way to this property. Have a drink in Pierre’s bar (you will want to make this bar your home) and then eat at Morada Bay. The sandy beach, islandy music, and tropical menu transports you.
Great Local Businesses
