Bubble Room, Captiva Island, Florida

Last month we escaped the wintry Northeast weather to visit Redneckhunter's brother in Florida. Unfortunately it was cold and rainy on Sanibel and Captiva islands while we were there, but it was still fun to get away. There's something distinctly Floridian about Sanibel/Captiva -- dolphin mailboxes, etc. that island kitsch -- and that was captured in The Bubble Room. The place is crammed full of vintage toys, movie posters, trains, planes - floor to ceiling, embedded into the tables, every inch. They even had an entire old Macy's Christmas display!

The place is, of course, a sight to see beyond the food, but they are well known for their mammoth desserts. I wish the pictures gave a sense of scale... We got slices of chocolate cake, cheesecake, and, of course, key lime pie.
