Casual Excellence. After a relaxing day on the beach or browsing Sanibel’s numerous shops, it’s time to treat yourself to some delicious, island-inspired food. Sit at handpainted tables inside, or enjoy the garden atmosphere of Periwinkle Place and sample the Cuban Sandwich for lunch—it’s an island favorite! There’s something for everyone on the dinner menu, including Signature Giraffe Cake Dinner, featuring pan-seared crab cakes topped with mango salsa, chipotle cream and sweet chili glaze. The breakfast menu offers a tempting variety of omelets and pancakes. Or you can try the Fisherman’s Benedict: two English muffins topped with poached eggs, salmon, spinach and grilled tomatoes, with Key lime hollandaise sauce. Come see why the locals love the Blue Giraffe!
