Bamboo Cafe French Home Cooking Certified as 

Naples' First Green Business


"Bamboo Cafe in Naples has another specialty on the menu besides French home cooking. The restaurant in Crayton Cove has qualified to become Naples' first certified green business.


Taking the steps to earn certification sped up a process owner-chef Lisa Boet already had started; for many years, she has stocked her menu with locally grown produce and sustainably caught seafood, she said.


"It just sort of naturally evolved," Boet said. "Naples has set a goal of certifying 25 green businesses as the city enters the homestretch of a year-long community outreach program to teach residents and business owners how to save energy, water and money."

"Treacherous Voyage"

By Crayton Cove Author

Marlena Brackebusch

Now Available at 

In Paperback or Kindle Edition


Capt. Marlena Brackebusch's heart-stopping new novel is the sequel to her successful Nightmare Voyage. Brackebusch whisks readers off to the tropical Caribbean, cruising from island to island, bringing back many of the same lovable, wacky characters we met before, and quite a few Crayton Cove denizens, too!  
The lively cast of characters encounters voodoo angels in the Dominican Republic, traipses through the steamy jungles of St. Vincent and scours the trendy streets of Key West in a wild search for a missing sailor. A midnight rescue attempt on a dark and stormy night keeps Treacherous Voyage's adrenaline-pumping story flying toward a climactic ending, only to have Capt. Marlena Brackebusch end it with another cruel twist of fate.

Crayton Cove is an Old Naples village-style destination on Naples Bay, imbued with historic ambience and rustic charm. Founded in the 1880s as the fledgling settlement's main moorage for supply boats, Crayton Cove retains the casual, friendly spirit of its pioneer settlers. All Crayton Cove businesses are locally-owned and operated. Visitors find working artists in their studios and galleries, enterprising merchants of one-of-a-kind shops, renowned restaurateurs, and the welcoming innkeepers at the Cove Inn. Crayton Cove's heart is Naples City Dock, home to Naples' largest charter fishing and sightseeing fleet. Visit us online at
