Jona Café - "Mom and Pop" Fine Quality for a Delicious Naples Breakfast or Lunch
The Café is in the same U-shaped plaza as Outback Steakhouse, on the South side, across from Outback, however it doesn’t face US 41. This site was formerly home to a string of restaurants, including C’est Bon, Dolce & Banana,. Taj of Naples, Tropical Smoothie Café and most recently a Chrissy’s.
The Dervishi’s bring their desire to offer filling plates of healthy foods from Bekat, Albania’s oldest city. They formerly operated the Quiznos in the nearby Park Shore Plaza. Their touch put that particular Quiznos’s taste ahead of the other branches. When they opened Jona Café, their loyal clientele happily followed.
“Jona” Cherries French toast ($6.99) is a portion sized for two lighter eaters or one healthy appetite. Succulent warm wedges of French toast are bathed with luscious warm dark red cherries and pecans sautéed in a reduced brandy-butter sauce. Lightly dusted with powdered sugar and accented by freshly whipped cream, it’ll satisfy a serious sweet tooth!
Try a crisp potato pancake with biscuits, gravy and ham.
They are said to serve some of the best crispy onion rings in Collier County- I agree.
I will be back for my BBQ burger, and try more dishes-as soon as someone to ask me to "do brunch."
Stop by for down home friendly service, delicious food and good pricing. It only gets better with each visit!
