Offering lunch and dinner, it is open only during the height of the visitor season, from January to mid-April. Apparently there just isn't enough business the rest of the year. <br /> <br /> When it is in operation, the Buttonwood Cafe is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The<strong> lunch</strong> menu includes salads, soups, sandwiches, fish sandwich, hamburgers and pizza. Prices start at around $8. It can be very crowded at lunch, with every seat occupied.<br /> <br /> The<strong> dinner </strong>usually is a repeat of lunch. Menu, of course, subject to change.<br /> <br /> Don't come to Flamingo relying on the Buttonwood Cafe to be open. <strong>Call ahead</strong> to the Flamingo Visitor Center to see if the restaurant is open and verify its operating hours: 239/695-2945.</p> <p class="text1">When visiting Flamingo, plan ahead for food, drink and other needs since Flamingo Marina is the only source of drinks and snacks, no meals. </p> <p class="text1"><strong>To </strong><a href="/florida_everglades/flamingo-things-to-do.html">Flamingo Things To Do</a></p> <p class="text1" style="margin-bottom: 0;"><strong>To</strong> <a href="http://evergladesnationalparkboattoursflamingo.com/" target="_blank">Flamingo Boat Tours </a></p> <p style="margin-bottom: 0"><span class="text1"><strong>To</strong></span> <a href="/florida_everglades/homestead_section.html">Homestead Homepage </a><br /> <br /> <strong>To</strong> <a href="/florida_everglades/index.html">Everglades National Park Home</a></p> <p class="text1"><script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script> <!-- Size Responsive --> <ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display:block" data-ad-client="ca-pub-9308523075932718" data-ad-slot="2407223116" data-ad-format="auto"></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script>  </p> <!-- InstanceEndEditable --> </p> <p> </p> <p style="font-size: small;"> </p></td> <td rowspan="5" valign="top" class="text1"></td> <td valign="top" class="text1">  </td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" class="text1"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="rt box 2" --><script async src="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js"></script> <!-- Asynch Skyscraper --> <ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display:inline-block;width:160px;height:600px" data-ad-client="ca-pub-9308523075932718" data-ad-slot="3973136713"></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script> <!-- InstanceEndEditable --> </td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" class="text1"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="rt box 3" --> <!-- InstanceEndEditable --> </td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" class="text1"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="rt box 4" --> <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->  </td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top" class="text1"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="rt box 5" --> <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->  </td> </tr> <tr> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> </table> </div> <p class="class1" style="margin-bottom: 0"> </p> <!--BEGIN RIGHT CLICK BLOCK--> <script language="JavaScript1.2"> /* Disable right click script II (on images)- By Dynamicdrive.com For full source, Terms of service, and 100s DTHML scripts Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com */ var clickmessage="Please contact me to license my pictures." function disableclick(e) { if (document.all) { if (event.button==2||event.button==3) { if (event.srcElement.tagName=="IMG"){ alert(clickmessage); return false; } } } else if (document.layers) { if (e.which == 3) { alert(clickmessage); return false; } } else if (document.getElementById){ if (e.which==3&&e.target.tagName=="IMG"){ alert(clickmessage) return false } } } function associateimages(){ for(i=0;i<document.images.length;i++) document.images[i].onmousedown=disableclick; } if (document.all) document.onmousedown=disableclick else if (document.getElementById) document.onmouseup=disableclick else if (document.layers) associateimages() </script> <!--END RIGHT CLICK BLOCK--> <!-- TemplateEnd --> </body> <!-- InstanceEnd --></html>
