Cafe Alcazar is found on the bottom of the old Flagler Hotel swimming pool. Consequently, it is not only a unique dining experience, but is also a nice refuge from the hot summer sun. The cafe is only open 11 AM to 4 PM. Nonetheless,...More

We came here once before and it has become our "Must" go to place for lunch at least once while we are there. We love the history and the food is excellent every time. HUGE sandwiches and unique takes on their recipes.

This is a historic site. The indoor pool of Henry Flagler's hotel. Unique atmosphere. Super menu, great specials.

If you love history, this is the place for lunch. I can't believe I was sitting in the deep end of an historic swimming pool to eat! Very good food and a delightful setting.

The cafe is predominantly a lunch restaurant, with very limited dates for dinner. It is well worth the wait if you're not able to make it for lunch.
