Breakfast Restaurant

Heavenly Biscuit, nestled on Fort Myers Beach was our go-to breakfast spot growing up. (This is also where my little sister’s love for biscuits and gravy began). They are known for their amazing biscuits and gravy and cinnamon rolls. After hurricane Ian, they have shifted to a food truck where you can still get their delicious treats.

Mexican Restaurant

Tacos and Tequila is a fun restaurant with delicious cocktails, a wide variety of tacos, and more. We loved the garden, yoki, and t&t signature tacos, the carnitas burrito, and their queso. They have so many different margaritas, including seasonal margaritas that are a must-try as well as a great daily happy hour from 12 to 6 pm! My personal favorite is the tropical margarita with a churro sugar rim.

A  local chain seafood restaurant, Pinchers has multiple locations in the Fort Myers area. We love visiting the Tarpon Point Cape Coral location because it’s located near the Westin Marina. After our meal, we love to walk around and check out the boats. Our favorites here are the soft shell crab sandwich, hot cheese and crab dip, shrimp, and oysters.
