Honey B'S Cafe has the best homemade food on Fleming Island Florida and in the entire Orange Park area. The tradition of Honey B's homemade food started several generations ago and continues today with the third and fourth generation of the Robbins family.

When we heard Manny Sarnelli was opening The Blu Grotto on Fleming Island, we were very excited. You see, we have been dining in his parent's restaurant up in Orange Park for over 20 years.  The arrival of The Blu Grotto is the arrival of Italian Fine Dining for Fleming Island Restaurants. The Blu Grotto is a "Trattoria" and "Pizzeria." "Trattoria" in Italian is a casual restaurant with full service and a large variety menu with prices for all budgets. "Pizzeria" - well, that's an Italian word that every American probably knows! The Blu Grotto is located in a strip shopping center across from the Fleming Island Movie Theatre. When you walk in, you feel like you're in, well, a Grotto! The mood is set by the cave-like entrance modeled after the famous blue cave in Italy off the coast of C...

Tonight we had a girls' night out with Jo at our friend's Silpada Jewelry Party on Fleming Island Florida. If you have recently moved to Fleming Island and love Silpada jewelry, then Jo is your connection. She has lived in the area for over 10 years and is a great friend to meet! Silpada Jewelry is a great company. You can host a party and receive free jewelry, or you can become a distributor and create your own business. Jo runs her own business and has distributors under her. Our friend Marls hosted the party and lots of fun friends were there. Really, the Silpada Jewelry was just an excuse to get together! Silpada offers jewelry that is real silver and stone, not costume jewelery. That is what appeals to me. Jo had a number of pieces on clearance at 40% off. There was a beautiful sil...

Eating is a popular activity here in Fleming Island - at least if you look at the number of restaurants. Mellow Mushroom is one of our favorites.A cozy outdoor eating area wraps around the front. Even when it's warm outside, patio fans give customers a cool breeze while waiting for their food or watching one of several TVs. When it's chilly, there are warmers every few feet. So the patio is a year-round event at Mellow Mushroom.Evenings find live music onstage, morphing the eatery into a hot spot for entertainment on the Island. Its casual outdoors atmosphere is oh so Florida.The indoors is a treat - right out of the 1970s decor. You might find Bob Dylan or Jimi Hendrix on a poster portrait painted by local artist Howie Green. It's very psychedelic and fun.The food is excellent, ranging...

Homes for sale at present range from $359,000 to $799,000. No waterfront properties are active. There are no amenities in Hibernia Plantation, but the oak-lined streets with larger lots are very appealing to many buyers.
