The original Food & Thought was opened in 2005 and it quickly became the place for the community to shop and eat in peace. Patrons knew that everything is not only organic but met the high standards that Food & Thought holds suppliers to.
As North Naples grew, it became apparent that it needed something similar, but on a larger scale. Food & Thought 2 opened in June of 2022.
While the two locations share a common DNA, Food & Thought 2 takes the concept to a new level. Food & Thought 2 features an all-organic, full-service restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Executive Chef Dan Kniola, formerly of the Players Club & Spa in Lely Resort, leads a team of chefs to create a menu of made-from-scratch, high-end dishes that will win over the most discerning of diners.
