We stumbled upon this place while making a short visit to this city. Our lunch was wonderful....a terrfic array of sandwiches, soups, & entrees...or you could order a "tea luncheon". The decor was fabulous and the staff both friendly and unique....we were seated by a man in tails and a top hat!!!!!
This is a fun Victorian Restaurant set in the middle of a weary South FL town. The outside is OK, but not too eye-catching. Inside, the owners have decorated it with intriguing perior pieces, including a functioning Estey Reed Organ. The maitre'd is dressed in tails and top hat. The food was excellent and served very well by Skye. We even "borrowed" the only table outside and played come cards in the sunshine. We've been here before, and we'll come again.

Last Chapter Coffee House is located in 'downtown' Arcadia close to many of the antiques shops.
We dropped in for a quick bit to eat. The staff were super friendly.
There is a good menu of sandwiches, salads, wraps and quiches. Plus drinks including various coffees.
My daughter had a BLT sandwich and my wife and I both had a quiche and salad. The food was very good and great value for money.

We have been travelling to Arcadia once a year for several years to meet at Magnolia Street Seafood and Grill. It is somewhat centrally located from the east cost and the west coast. Most are either central or west coast, so the east coaster gets to travel the farthest. Magnolia has accommodated from eight to twelve of us every year. The servers, especially George, are great. They're very attentive, and for the most part, get everything spot on when serving.. The food is plentiful and delicious! Lunch including drink and tip is between $14 -$16. No dinner is necessary if one eats the entire lunch!
The building is really old, but it's kept up fairly well considering its age! If one is going from coast to coast in FL, it'd be a nice stop for the antique shops in town and lunch at Magnolia!

Don't be fooled by the outside appearance of this little gem. It serves up some of the best ice cream you'll ever eat. The Rum Raisin is my personal favorite. It's out of this world. All fresh and made in house. Coconut, mango pepper and tons of other flavors. You won't be disappointed. P.S. bring a bib, it's creamy and messy. Lol. So go have some ice cream.

We met friends for lunch at Slim's and could tell it was a local favorite. They would not seat us until our entire party was there, which is understandable as the place filled quickly. But we were seated as soon as everyone arrived, so they were watching out for us. This is a locals restaurant, friendly and reasonably priced, which also happens to have some BBQ. They had sweet tea, no surprise, so I had that. Everyone else had water. Two of us ordered the Rib Special, $9.99, and we both had it with garlic bread and steak fries. They supply two BBQ sauces, mild and spicy, and I found the "spicy" was about medium. The ribs were great and both of us ate them all. The other friend had the Lite Fish Special, $9.99, and enjoyed it. My wife had the Key West Style Sandwich Basket with chicken, $9.99, and also enjoyed it. Both of these came with the Key West sauce, which worked really well on fries. They had some nice desserts, but none of us had room to try them. All of us would come back anytime, the food was great and the service was solid.

Sandwiches, salads, home baked desserts at reasonable prices and tastes great. Small town ambience and pleasant family run establishment.
anything I didn't like was more preference than actually a bad mark on the restaurant in any way. I thought the brownie had a coffee taste, but a lot of people would like that. wait was short considering they were busy. I like the ambiance

This is a very interesting place. I think we came at a bad time because the flies were so bad in the back that we couldn't sit there. Instead of eating we just grabbed a cold beer and took in the scenery. Local place tucked away but worth the trip.

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor we sought out this cafe. We had no complaints about food or service but let me be honest about the atmosphere.
This cafe is in a shabby old building. Some have referred to it as historic. The restroom is accessed by walking outside and around the corner to the alley. The decor is country inspired but not antique or particularly charming.
But again, speaking honestly, the breakfast was perfectly prepared! Every bit as good as fancy First Watch restaurant but more fairly priced. The choices for breakfast were varied and delicious. I had 2 eggs over easy, grits and hash browns. Hubby had the small order of biscuits and gravy (which was a big meal).
Looking over the lunch and dinner menus we saw honest country home style meals and vegetable plates for vegan and vegetarian diners.
But no alcohol beverages.
The diner was very clean and the servers were warm, friendly and attractive.
I recommend Wheeler's Cafe. Just don't be surprised expecting charming historic decor or a modern coffee shop. Wheeler's is a hole-in-the-wall that will endear you!
Arcadia's best kept secret and a Florida country culinary treasure.

Wendsday night about 6 pm. The place was completely empty, it concerned us when we walked in. The place was clean. We were seated promptly and Waiter was quick with drinks, chips, and food. Food was very tasty but a little on the greasey side. This is just your average Mexican restaurant.

If your driving thru Arcadia try this little place. Small, busy...but worth checking out. We had
breakfast & lunch....a veggie omelet and chicken sandwich, both were very tasty, fresh produce and meat-not pressed chicken. Everything was served hot and quick with really friendly staff.
Super casual and busy after church, but worth the wait if there is one.
This will be a go to place when were are in the area!
