Kapok Tree Inn
American Retro Apparel
Just after the Civil War, a man planted a kapok tree from India on his property near the western shore of Tampa Bay in Clearwater, Florida. People came from miles around over the years just to look at this tree.
The 200-seat Kapok Tree Inn opened on that same property in Clearwater in 1958 and immediately became a hit with locals and tourists alike. It offered fried chicken, broiled steak and baked ham served in a setting of fabulous antiques and tropical palms with the backdrop of the famous kapok tree and its offspring.
At its peak, the Kapok Tree had 12 dining rooms. The restaurant was so popular they went public in the 1970's and opened several other Kapok Tree Inns in Florida and Maryland. In the late 1980s and early 90s the revenue began to decline and so did some of the restaurants. In 1991, the last one, the original in Clearwater, closed its doors.
