Old Florida Cafe

"Y'all come set a spell" on the porch. The view
is about the same as it was 100 years ago,
when this tiny town bustled with farm
wagons loading citrus and produce at the
train depot. By-passed by progress
Micanopy began to revive in the 
1970's as an antiques mecca.

The open-air porch, (above left) provides
an idyllic spot for dining in the shade
among hanging baskets of flowers.

If the weather turns foul you can lunch
indoors at a glass-covered table filled
 with ancient local matchbook covers
covers, postcards, and other Florida
memorabilia. Not hungry? Then just
browse the gift shop, filled with
antiques collectibles, and gifts.

Have a delightful dining experience
  at the Old Florida Café in Micanopy
"The little town that time forgot".
Then stroll the myriad of shops.

  


As tourism grew Philip Savino and
daughter Alexandra realized an
unfilled niche: the town no longer
had a restaurant. They began
serving a limited menu of old
family recipes.

The most popular dish, black beans and rice
has been available every day since the cafe'
opened in 1996. The Cuban and Rueben
sandwiches are also in demand. There's a
selection of deli sandwiches served on
thick-sliced bakery bread. For dessert try
their famous Key Lime Pie or the tasty
McIntosh Wild Orange Pie, made from
 hand-picked wild oranges.

and the best sandwich I have ever had.
