Every day from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m., the culinary artisans at Zapata's Café build sandwiches, fire flatbreads, and blend fresh smoothies using vibrant, fresh ingredients. The bright space comes alive at lunch time, when friends gather around rustic wooden tables before digging into berry-spinach salads or double-palming hearty pork burritos. To help diners wake up right each day, chefs also put together custom sandwiches and breakfast burritos stocked with veggies and eggs with inspirational messages written in salsa on the side.
Il Ponte Cafe’s chefs bake a bridge between Italian classics and the flavors of the greater Mediterranean. Herb-crusted salmon basks in rich lobster sauce, seared atop a grill until patterned with perfect lines or a cross-hatched portrait of the chef. The spears of kebabs thrust through both land and sea meats, accompanied to the table by freshly made hummus, and a lively fattoush salad casts off parsley, tomatoes, onions, pickles, olives, pita crisps, and feta cheese into a leafy lagoon of romaine and iceberg lettuce.
Behind Indian Shores Massage's seafoam green exterior is an arched entryway evoking the symmetrical domes of ancient Mughal architecture. The lobby’s decorative Buddha statues, elephant sculptures, and wall decor further heighten the Eastern aesthetic. Patty Iorio and Emily Field make up a two-person team of licensed massage therapists, each versed in bodywork techniques as varied as head, hand, and foot reflexology, hot stones, and Thai yoga massage. Soft music mingles with the sound of the Gulf of Mexico's nearby shoreline during services that take place in spacious private rooms, where aromatic ocean zephyrs and the occasional trident soar through billowy white curtains.
On weekdays at Jack's Joint, happy hour stretches from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m., karaoke, live bands, or standup comedians take the stage in the evening. Cooks prepare burgers, flatbreads, caesar wraps, cuban sandwiches, and other hearty dishes to pair with cocktails and beer.
A quaint teashop with a Scottish flare, Moffat's Cup of Tea at first seems as if it would be more at home in the Highlands than basking under Florida’s perennial sunshine. With its bright-green walls and purple trim, however, the shop has adapted well to its tropical surroundings. The vibrant decor lifts guests’ spirits as they sit down for afternoon tea, which is often accompanied by freshly prepared sandwiches, pastries, and fruit. Steam rises over tables draped in lace as the staff pours selections from more than 35 varieties of tea into cups of English china, each delicately painted with a stamp to verify its dual-citizenship. After taking tea, guests can peruse the gift room's selection of teas, pots, and other fine wares.
The chefs at Lisa's Café sate hearty appetites with steaks, burgers, and seafood on the dinner and lunch menus. For dinner, fresh grouper sings a savory culinary duet with a Maryland crabcake on a plate of Lisa's recipe grouper oscar, inspiring an audience of garlic mashed potatoes to applaud with a shower of hollandaise and toss fresh asparagus bouquets onstage ($27). Noontime noshers can test their incisors’ mettle against a sharp-shooting western burger armed with barbecue sauce, bacon, cheddar cheese, and spiky fried-onion spurs ($10). Alternately, patrons can lounge outdoors under large umbrellas to enjoy the breeze from the nearby beach or toss freshly breaded grouper nuggets ($9) into the mouths of passersby.
