Naples has been proclaimed a top U.S. foodie city by Conde Nast Traveler magazine, and that has a lot to do with its recent daring, break out of the mold cuisine. But for those who savor a good, hot, hearty, homemade repast, Naples offers a number of neighborhood cafes and restaurants where you will feel right at home. Most of these serve breakfast and lunch only in something of a retro, diner setting. Others, however, reflect Naples’ diversity with not necessarily typical American comfort food. Take for instance the Oyster House Restaurant in Everglades City. Most Americans would not consider frog legs and alligator tail comfort food, but that’s exactly what Everglades folk consider it. At Patric’s in Naples, the comfort food actually takes a turn for healthy with special gluten free Paleo diet menus featuring meat and leafy veggies.
This list includes both of these unusual homestyle options as well as the ultimate ethnic comfort food – pizza and pasta – plus the all-American and Southern style diners where biscuits and gravy, country fried steak, meatloaf, juicy burgers, pot roast and mashed potatoes and homemade fruit or key lime pie sate that specific appetite that only homemade comfort dishes can.
