When Camille’s moved into its current home, a ghost happened to live there. After a rabbi, a priest, shamans, an exorcist, sage, prayers, and bone shaking, the ghost finally left. The employees brought paint, brushes and vodka, and the restaurant opened. With orange sherbet walls, tropical tablecloths, eclectic art, and vintage movie posters, it’s a riot of pure Key West style. The menu for all three meals changes daily, comprised of an exotic, comfy, zany mix. At least one item is called “orgasmic”. Who knows? I do promise food built from scratch, using whole, real ingredients. The Key lime pie (named “best” by the New York Times Sophisticated Traveler and Zagat) is baked by the owner. Camille’s has won every Locals Choice award. South Florida Magazine named it “Best Casual Gourmet Food on a Budget”; aol.com voted it “Best Breakfast in the U.S.A” two years, and Epicurious.com said, “come hungry.” Camille’s specializes in fussy eaters, offering Atkins, allergy-friendly, vegetarian, and you-name-it alternatives. Large parties welcome, so bring the gang (sans ghost).
