Every detail carries a message at the Pelican Café in Lake Park: Yes, somebody’s home.

It’s as subtle as the string of tiny lights that illuminate the historic house where the cafe has operated since 2008. It reinforces the feeling that this is a “special occasion” spot, one that’s not necessarily fancy but one that is fine, with fine service, excellent food and a vintage setting that wraps you in its arms.

Chef Mark Frangione, who co-owns the cafe with wife, Karen Howe, takes inspiration from his Italian root, in delectable dishes from Mom Frangione’s Sunday Pasta to Shrimp Scampi.

If you go: Pelican Café: 612 U.S. 1, Lake Park; 561-842-7272

2014 review rating: FOOD: A, SERVICE: A
