About Jane's Cafe on Third

Description

Not surprisingly, the downtown scene slows to a dull roar during the lazy, hazy days of summer. But even when temps climb into the sticky 90s, most restaurants on Third Street South and Fifth Avenue continue to do decent business — serving lunch and dinner. It's during the a.m. that options are few and far between. That fact didn't go unnoticed by Jane and Tony Wood, who were looking to open a dining venue in Old Naples. Last fall, they chose an empty storefront at 1209 Third St. S., tucked inside a delightful courtyard shared by upscale enterprises like Sonya Benson and A Mano, and set about filling the untapped niche. Over the next few months, the Woods and family members gutted the space and Jane's Café on 3rd was born on Dec. 1. But don't let the plain-Jane name fool you. The result is a combination of old world charm and new world casual elegance. The café boasts a spacious al fresco dining area (a hot spot during season) complete with gurgling fountains, attractive foliage and unusual pottery accents. The interior is cool and relaxing, walls a soothing lilac-tinged shade of blue. Beautifully framed artwork by locals Natalie Guess and Phil Fisher add splashes of color. As the excellent coffee keeps coming, the menu entices. While it isn't the most extensive in town — remember, the café is small — it boasts a good mix of standards and more original offerings. Jane's Café is a little hard to find if you aren't familiar with the area. Look for the small courtyard plaza behind the concierge station on Third Street South.
