The Jacaranda "Lives"

The Hotel Jacaranda & Restaurant/Dining Room is an elegant, beautiful, delightful experience – It was built in the 1920’s and from what we’ve been told (and looked up on internet), over the years it catered to locals and many famous people of the times. It’s “old world atmosphere” took my breath away the first time I entered – just being in the lobby of the hotel gives you a feeling of gracious-times gone by – if you’re tuned into it, you can feel the presence of those that passed through the doors. For several years we made the trek from Bowling Green, FL to Avon Park at Thanksgiving and Christmas for the “Holiday Grand Buffets” – amazing – delicious – unbelievable -there are not enough adjectives to pay the proper tributes to this marvelous place.
Some time in the 1980’s, a State College Foundation took over to help preserve this historic icon – and restore it to it’s early history grandeur.
I can say the preservation has done it justice – and the Hotel Jacaranda Restaurant/Dining Rooms are wonderful. The food is more than “good” …they take the same items anyone can “cook” and make you think you never had it before! The summer menu is in effect now, – sandwiches and specials Monday through Friday and the Sunday “Grand Buffet” – the winter “Season” is expanded. Hoteljac.com has more detail. It’s casual dining in an “elegant setting.”
To get the full effect, during summer schedule, the Sunday Grand Buffet is the best bet. We were over there during the week and the lunches were “limted” but excellent. We’re looking forward to going back for the Sunday Grand Buffet soon. She said it was “just like it used to be” – good recommendation. Excellent service “just like it used to be”…

#4, Roast Beef (sandwich plus one)

There ten or eleven choices of sandwiches plus one, also a daily special. We both had the #4 Roast Beef with potato salad as a side – excellent choice – tender roast beef, good flavor – the potato salad was enjoyed too.

An Architectural Piece of Art

When the historic Jacaranda Hotel fell into disrepair, South Florida Community College bought and restored it. While still a working hotel, many of the rooms are used as dorm rooms for students at SFCC. Also, the college's culinary arts…
