Apparently Fort Myers residents and Southwest Floridians can’t get enough of it. The famous Bubble Room cake back in Fort Myers this weekend for another pop up run. It all started three weeks ago when the owners of the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater gave the world famous Captiva Island restaurant use of its kitchen for the weekend. The cakes sold out in three hours.
The Bubble Room was severely damaged by Hurricane Ian and like many island businesses has been closed since the storm hit on September 28th.
About the Bubble Room
The Bubble Room is an iconic island restaurant, known for its shadow box tables in the dining room and an old train traveling along the ceiling. The place is a treasure trove of trinkets and antiques. Servers are known as Bubble Scouts and the menu items have clever names. Some include, Duck Wellington, Smoke Get’s In Your Eyes, Marylin Mignon and more.
In addition, The Bubble Room is known for its cheesy Bubble Bread, sweet Sticky Buns and massive cakes. The slices of cake are legendary. Locals driving to Captiva for the day would almost always take time to stop for a slice to go. It was an adventure.
The desserts had taken on such a life of their own that the restaurant opened a parking lot outpost called Boops By The Bubble Room. Not only could you find slices of cake but also cookies, donuts, ice cream and more. It’s an old fashioned soda fountain that is also still closed.
For this weekend, go to the back of the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater on Colonial Blvd and Summerlin Rd to get your cake. It starts at 11am and goes until 2pm or when it runs out. Whole cakes are $63 and slices are $9.50. You can not order in advance. It is first come, first delicious serve.
