a place to eat in dade city, as if you'd ever go there

I have to recommend what must be one of the most wonderful restaurants in Florida--Cafe Kokopelli, in downtown Dade City. The woman who owns this place has scavanged every available scrap of local history--photos, ephemera, useless junk, paintings, you name it--and hung it from every wall and rafter of this enormous place (a revamped Ford Motor Garage). Lots of stuff on the menu is organic--she's committed to serving the freshest and healthiest--but she doesn't say so on the menu because she doesn't think her customers would care! She made her $ on fast food franchises, but this is her labor of love (and perhaps she's doing penance.) If you're ever within 100 miles of Dade City, make the trip (ask her for a look at the back rooms, which are usually only open for parties).
