Sharing a Decadent Bubble Room Dessert in Captiva, Florida
The Bubble Room has kitsch nailed down to a science, from the classic carnival exterior to the Boy Scout-uniform bedecked waitstaff. The walls are crammed with nostalgic memorabilia; old black-and-white photos of mustachioed Hollywood heroes, creepy Santa dolls and vintage circus-performer leaflets. Portions at this must-see independent eatery are staggering. One look at the dessert tray will send your blood sugar levels into a pre-diabetic shock, but you'd be a fool to pass up the lush red velvet cake, tropical citrus cake, or better yet, a darn good piece of key lime pie and a cup of coffee. When the chain restaurants of nearby Fort Myers have lulled you (and your tastebuds) into a snooze, head to Bubble Room.
