Buttonwood Café: Dining in the Heart of the Everglades

Buttonwood Café is a restaurant located in the Flamingo District of Everglades National Park about an hour south of Miami. It s a mere 38 miles south of the Homestead main entrance to the park. Serving lunch and dinner, the eatery recently changed their hours for summer (11 a.m. to 7 p.m., closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays).

The lunch and dinner menu includes salads ($5.95 to $8.95) and soups ($3.99 to $4.99). The sandwiches range in price from the foot-long hot dog ($5.95) to the fresh grouper sandwich ($13.95). Vegetarians can try the veggie burger ($7.95), while the crab cake burger ($9.95) is what piques my interest.
