The style is a 50/60's feel, and the owners have really done a good job with the decor. The eggs Benedict and hash browns were great, and my husband's pancakes were AMAZING! Get the pancakes!!!!! They are so good that you don't even need syrup....More

Starlight Diner opened March 3rd, 2014 and has become a destination spot in Cape Coral for locals, seasonal residents and tourist. As you approach the 50's-60's diner, with its retro interior, you are greeted by Elvis with his guitar, striking his signature pose and Marilyn Monroe too. Once inside, the classic black-and-white checked floor with seating in aqua, white and chrome are sure to bring back the memories. Or how about the old Coke Machine and the bubbling Wurlitzer Jukebox? And did we mention the drive-in theater screen showing classic old movies? As you sit and listen to all the 50's-60's tunes, you'll notice the murals - classic old cars and classic old stars! Dine outdoors on the patio and enjoy our glorious weather! You can even bring Fido - Stevie's Patio is dog-friendly for all Stevie's well-mannered friends!
