Pelican Cafe and Beach

The Pelican Cafe became the city of Stuart’s first licensed pet-friendly restaurant on Sept. 12, 2008. Following

Zampa returned again in Sept. 2018 and we got a bit more on the back story  It seems the husband wanted a dog and the wife wanted a cat. They settled on Zampa instead. It's a little hard to see, but Zampa has a HUGE smile on her snout for the camera.

Bonnie Giacovelli emailed this picture of Kermit and Fozzie Bear. I happen to be disabled and Kermit is my service dog and Fozzie is in training. It is always wonderful to find pet friendly places to eat where my dogs just get to be themselves and not have to work. The atmosphere and the food were just wonderful and we will definitely come again. 

All the time!

A small group of Ibis taking a break from all the children trying to play and catch them. We always say "please don't feed the birds" but they are such a novelty for so many who have never seen this type of bird up close and personal before. We are fortunate to have great and beautiful birds always close by.

Gabrielle sent this pic along with a note saying: Amigo had a great time at pelican cafe and enjoyed his meat patty! We will definitely be back with our fur baby.

This beautiful Green Wing Macaw, named Davidson, belongs to Bob and Sherri Resner. They are frequent visitors and often come with several of their other totally awesome birds.
