One of Benjamin Franklin’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today's Groupon: for $17, you get breakfast by the bay and mimosas for two at Flipper's on the Bay (up to a $39.80 value) at Lovers Key Resort in Fort Myers Beach. This deal is valid from 7:30 a.m.–11 a.m. daily. The breakfast includes:
- Choice of two breakfast entrees (up to a $13.90 value each)
- Two mimosas (a $6 value each)
Chef Juan Cruz at Flippers on the Bay has launched a menu of maritime delights bitten during breakfasts overlooking the dolphin-filled waterfront vistas of Estero Bay. Fresh-caught lobster scatters over the ultimate lobster Eggs Benedict's ($13.90) layers of key-lime hollandaise and two poached eggs. The Lovers Key breakfast burrito ($8.90) sheathed in homemade enchilada sauce rises from the sea upon an enormous clam shell, and the pancake sundae ($7.90) nets three buttermilk hot cakes shrouded in fresh fruit, chocolate chips, and vanilla bean ice cream. As they clink their glasses of mimosa together, patrons stare out at the bay and its canopy of palms unfurling like umbrellas and turning inside out in a strong breeze.
