Fun little place to sign on Saturdays is at the Fresh Aroma Bistro Cafe. Its a little cafe where the menu depends on the owner's mood. The place is at the Deerfield Beach Mall off Hillsboro Blvd just west of Powerline rd. It sits between a Taco Bell and Wings joint. They also have live music on Friday nights and Sunday afternoon.

In the 30's, Al Capone bought this island because it was a secluded area. Hence it's present name. It is also referred to as Deerfield Island Park. There are many animals to see. I have caught a glimpse of manatee, heron, and a HUGE iguana around the area. By the way, this iguana is orange...and it has to be 3 or 4 feet long...it's massive. Quite a beast! There are also nature trails, an eight acre mangrove swamp, picnic area, and restrooms! (thank goodness!!!)
Seeing as how it is an island ;-) it is only accesible by boat. The free shuttle transports people along the following schedule:
Wednesday 10 am, 11 am, and noon
Sunday on the hour from 10 am to 3 pm
The park is open from 9 am to 5 pm Wednesday through Sunday amd private boats can dock from 9 am to 4 pm as long as they are less than 25 feet long.

Usually, in my experience at least, oceanfront/waterfront dining is often high on location & mediocre on cuisine. Not so at JB's. It's not gourmet, but it's definitely delicious. They use creative ingredients and the presentation is really nice. But you simply can not beat the scenery. It is ON the beach. As in, get up from your table and walk straight into the sand.
I highly suggest you take a stroll down the Deerfield Beach pier after eating here.
Make sure you make a reservation if you go for dinner. Valet parking is required if you come by car.
It's free, but you should tip the person that brings your car back to you after your meal.
Favorite Dish: For lunch I've had the:
Crunchy Mahi Mahi Sandwich
almond encrusted fillet, served with French fries & citrus tartar sauce
This was EXcellent, really it was, I'd never had almond-crusted fish before, loved it.
For dinner I've had the:
Macadamia Encrusted Tilapia
served with island rice, mango salsa, orange chili sauce and vegetables
Yep, more nut-crusted fish, just as if not more delicious than the sandwich, loved the mango salsa.
Oh and they have

Kelly's Ocean Grille - I wouldn't really boast about the food but it sure is convenient and fast if you're in swimsuits and don't desire waitress service. The views are lovely too as it is situated right off the pier. A step above fast food with more variety including beer/wine.
Favorite Dish: Crab cake sandwich.

Shauna Sweeney appears every thursday and friday from 8-11. She has alot of good origionals and does various covers. This is a great thing to do before hitting the later night Beach Clubs. Not to mention that the staff wears less that Hooters girls and look twice as good.
Dress Code: No dress requirement.

Portuguese Man of War Jellyfish
Beware of the very dangerous jellyfish.
We encountered them in the water and
washed up on shore on these Florida
beaches in December:
Boca Raton Beach - Deerfield Beach
Delray Beach - Lantana Beach
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
DO NOT TOUCH THEM IN WATER
DO NOT PICK THEM UP ON THE BEACH
The sting of the Portuguese Man Of War is very painful to man and
can cause serious effects, including fever, shock, and interference
with heart and lung action. Pick off any visible tentacles. Rinse with
fresh or salt water. Apply ice for pain.
IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION MAY BE REQUIRED
as their stinging may bring about shock.
The toxin secreted from the tentacles of the Portuguese Man-Of-War
are about seventy-five percent as powerful as cobra venom.
The most common result of contact with the Man-Of-War are the
residual whip-like, red wavy, stringy welts on the skin from contact
with the blue tentacle. The lesions can last for minutes to hours.
Guarded beaches in Florida are posted with special signs by
lifeguards when there are Portuguese Man-Of-War present in the

FIRST AID SUGGESTIONS FOR A MAN OF WAR STING:
* Pick off any visible tentacles with a gloved hand, stick, or anything handy,
being careful to avoid further injury.
* Rinse the sting thoroughly with salt or fresh water to remove any adhering
* Apply ice for pain control.
* Irrigate exposed eyes with copious amounts of room temperature tap
water for at least 15 minutes. If vision blurs, or the eyes continue to tear,
hurt, swell, or are light sensitive after irrigating, see a doctor.
* For persistent itching or skin rash, try 1 percent hydrocortisone ointment
four times a day, and one or two 25 milligram diphenhydramine (Benadryl)
tablets every 6 hours. These drugs are sold without prescription.
Diphenhydramine may cause drowsiness. Don't drive, swim or surf after
taking this medication.

Favorite thing: What else, visit the beach! There are huts to sit under and enjoy the views if you're not into sand. Also some preferred sitting on the grassy area next to the beach.
