Business Description

History runs deep in this restaurant, as it first opened in 1978 as the Pancake and Omelette House. The "P&O" quickly became a beloved local favorite with home-style cooking and diner decor—creating a nostalgic atmosphere and experience. In 1984, Lynda Leonard Boyce bought and transformed the diner into what is now the award-winning Sanibel Cafe. The legendary Lynda created and served some of the finest fare on these islands for twenty-two years. In the spring of 2006, Lynda passed on the spatula to Ken Loewit and Richard McCurry, and today, Richard is still running things to ensure each visit is more amazing than the last.

The cafe's ambience is casual, but the food is far from it. Every bite is packed with flavor and every dish is made with care.
