Get to Know Us

Downtown Bonita Springs , for a long time was more reminiscent of an old fishing village than any of its neighbors to the north or south. No place encompassed that feel better than a small cafe converted from an old Florida cottage with a wrap around deck. The outdoor patio under old live oaks draped with Spanish moss and surrounded by palms enhance  that southern laidback feeling. .

Loaded with Old Florida History, The Survey Cafe is a quaint, mostly outdoor cafe set in the heart of scenic Downtown Bonita Springs. 

Survey Cafe adapted its name from the historic name of Bonita Springs. It was so named because a group of surveyors made camp here in the 1870s .
