The old City electric building, located in Cascades Park, has successfully been transformed into the Edison restaurant, which offers patrons great views and a unique atmosphere.
However, if you are out in Cascades Park with your family and you decided to stop in and eat lunch, be prepared to pay some of the highest prices in Tallahassee.
While there have been a number of articles written in the Tallahassee Democrat about the Edison, none of the reports have addressed the cost to eat at the City subsidized restaurant.
Listed below is a lunch menu recently sent to Tallahassee Reports. Click to enlarge.
For a family of four, ( husband, wife and two children) to eat a lunch that includes the Edison Burger ($15), a Wedge Salad ($11), a Grilled Cheese for each child ($7 each) and four soft drinks ($2.50 each) it would cost, with sales tax, approximately $54.00.
The menu also includes a Blackened Grouper sandwhich for $12 and a Lobster Roll for $21.
How do the Edison prices compare to other restaurants?
We used the Edison Burger as a comparison.
The Edison Burger includes bacon, cheese and french fries. The following shows a comparison of prices for five different Tallahassee restaurants. Prices were taken from online menus.
The Edison – $15
Midtown Caboose $10.99
Grub Burger $10.80
We reviewed approximately 15 restaurants and it appears that the Edison features one of the most expensive burgers in town.
