Next I want to bring you some juicy info about a wonderfully fun restaurant called Cafe Karibo, pronounced the same as the reindeer’s cousin, caribou. The restaurant resides in the quaint little, “Old Florida” town of Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island off Florida’s east coast. It’s almost to the Georgia state line. And in the ocean.

My husband and I have visited Fernandina Beach a couple of times, and I highly recommend their Black Friday Pajama Party each year at Thanksgiving. When we discovered Karibo on the first trip, we knew we’d be back.

As with many establishments in the town, it’s located in a historic building, which houses not only the restaurant, but their brew pub as well, which has the tongue-twister name of Karibrew Pub. It’s named after their tasty, fresh, home-brewed beer, Karibrew. I recommend it!

Their website has the perfect description of what they serve: eclectic cuisine + affordable gourmet. The atmosphere is casual, with the work of local artists on the walls. And the food is always fresh, there is plenty of it, and the service is friendly. You can choose a seat inside…

… or outdoors. But it’s most definitely NOT your typical touristy Florida grill!

They have a “famous” veggie burger. I can take or leave a veggie burger normally, but THIS one! Ah! Here’s one now, hiding behind the homemade chili and a glass of that cold, cold Karibrew:

The crowning glory of a meal at Karibo is dessert. One of the owners makes these light and airy layer cakes that reach the sky.

Just take a closer look at this carrot cake:

I still can’t believe how light it is – carrot cake is supposed to be dense, right? I’ve tried prying the secret out of several wait staff and the owner herself, but they are very diplomatic in avoiding a real answer. I’ll just have to go there to eat, I guess.

Karibo is a couple of blocks off Main Street, at 27 North Third Street in Fernandina Beach, FL 32034. There are lots of other unique places to dine in Fernandina, but I like Karibo most of all. It’s great to stroll down Main, poking into the little shops and chatting with the townspeople, then head over to Cafe Karibo for a beer and some grub. I tell you, whenever I go there I feel like one of the residents. The whole town is very welcoming and friendly. I always hate to leave!
