Enjoy a healthy, fresh meal at Cactus Flower Cafe

In addition to all the fried shrimp and raw oysters you could want while staying at your Gulf Shores beach house rental, sometimes what you crave is a big salad or a simply prepared combination of fresh foods to fill your tummy. At the Cactus Flower Cafe in Gulf Shores you can enjoy delicious and healthy Mexican fare that's not only good for your body, but good for your soul as well.

The brains behind the cafe

Experts in Mexican cuisine, Lee Kafeety and Joni DeRome are the masterminds behind Cactus Flower Cafe.

"The recipes are family recipes that I put a fresh spin on," said Kafeety on her restaurant's website. "All the taste of traditional Mexican food is here, but without
the animal fat or items that are refried. I am proud to offer this food and proud of the amazing staff that helps me day in and day out to prepare such lovely, fresh
and delicious menu items."

If you're of the same mentality as Kafeety, who views life as a positive and fulfilling experience, then you'll be in good hands at the Cactus Flower Cafe.

Food for all diets

Visitors who are sensitive to gluten or are trying to cut down on starches will be thrilled by the plethora of menu options to choose from at Cactus Flower Cafe, particularly because Mexican food typically features corn tortillas and non-wheat wraps. If it's a cool day outside, you can warm up with a steaming bowl of tortilla soup served with freshly toasted tortilla strips, monterey jack cheese, crisp cilantro and a splash of lime. Are you following a vegan diet? Order a Mexican salad, which is piled high with black beans, rice and fresh pico de gallo.

Cactus Flower Cafe, located in the Pelican Point shopping center north of the island, is only one of the many restaurants along the Gulf Coast that provides you with the option of healthier meals. Whether staying at a condo in Orange Beach, a vacation duplex in Gulf Shores or Fort Morgan, or a beach house in Perdido Key, great meals for all palates are just a few moments from your door.
