If I remember anything else of interest, I shall make note here.
Sorry, but I just noticed your post.
We got to CB Wednesday evening, and left midday Saturday.
Wednesday evening, we ate at Lobster Shanty, just south of town. Forgettable. The waitress said it was dead because of the first day of school. I got stuffed tuna, which was dry (standing around waiting for a crowd?) - the sauce smelled like my dog when he needs a bath....
Anyway, Roberto's the next morning did not disappoint!! Thank you for the recommendation! We got there about 9AM, and I asked if it was too early for a Cuban sandwich. The waitress smiled, and told me it's never too early for a Cuban sandwich...it was great - everything I expected.
We went back to Roberto's twice, including that same day, for dinner. I got the simply grilled grouper, with rice, beans, and maduras (sweet grilled plaintain chunks). An amazingly simple, extraordinary dish. I didn't even try to expect fish that fresh and well-prepared elsewhere. The morning we left CB, we went there once more. I got the Surfer Special - eggs atop black beans and yellow rice.
If we lived in/near CB, Roberto's is where we would eat. I wish we'd had more time to explore their lengthy menu....
Longdoggers (http://www.longdoggers.com/) was good roadfood. We ate at the Indialantic location.
Florida's Seafood (http://www.floridas-seafood.com/index.html), just before the 520 causeway, on the CB side, was good too.
Crab Heaven, next to the Merritt Island mall, came recommended by a coworker. It looked great (as in, run down), but we didn't make the time to try it.
Roberto's, though, was the culinary highlight of the trip.
Thanks again, roossy. We might not have made it to Roberto's without your recommendation!
