Only in Pensacola Beach for two days and had breakfast here both days. Hollandaise one of the best I've tasted. Fresh hash browns are awesome. Sometimes a slight wait, but they serve quickly.Cozy atmosphere, good value, wonderful food. So glad we found it.

I'd heard it was THE place to go. Don't be fooled by idea this place is 'off the beaten path'. I arrived there for breakfast 10 minutes before opening at 7:30 in the morning and there were 30 people in line. I sat at the bar with a local couple and the gentleman said their secret had gotten out and... More

We stopped for lunch after a bike ride on Pensacola Beach. It was in the middle of Spring Break but we were seated immediately. The Cafe has a fun beach vibe. Probably exactly what you would expect. Everything is very casual in an organized way - if that makes any sense. We had the soup and sandwich special for that... More

Loved the Eggs Benedict! Nice little place with an artsy feel to it. We enjoyed it very much. Would definitely eat there again.

This is a great little cafe where everything is homemade, the chowder was wonderful and the fish tacos were the best I ever had,top it off with walnut crusted key lime pie.The sad part is they are not open for dinner.

Today was the third day in a row that we ate here for breakfast! We LOVE it! So far I've had the chocolate chip pancakes, stuffed French toast with strawberries and blueberries, and the crab eggs Benedict. You must try the crab eggs Benedict!!!!! It's amazing!!! Has a nice lightly crisp English muffin, meaty and not overly bready crab cake,... More

After reading the TripAdvisor reviews we were excited to try The Native Cafe. It has the look and feel of a locals favorite but I'm not sure that it is. The service was good, the atmosphere was definitely local and one of our meals was excellent with the other just "OK". We really try to chose local favorites over tourist... More

This is a nice little café tucked in a cool old strip mall from the 60's or 70's. The staff is friendly, the service was very good, and the atmosphere is sort of beach chic with a bunch of art (for sale) hanging on the walls. We were just there for breakfast, which was quite good, so I can't vouch... More
