I came for lunch with the ravenous appetite of a polar bear coming out of hibernation, except that I wasn't on the prowl for seal blubber. Though this restaurant is situated far from the trendy dining establishments in and around upscale Mizner Park, the glowing reviews brought me here, despite Tom Sawyer's bring stuck in an unattractive small shopping center...

Had breakfast with the wife, #2, and his girlfriend. The breakfast was, overall, good. The sausage gravy was thick & tastey, made with a 'kielbasa' style sausage which was different but not bad. Everything was prepared as ordered and the coffee always topped. Why the average review? For a place that specializes in breakfast the 'biscuit' left much to be... More

Ordered the chicken skillet with chilli cheese and s friend ordered the breakfast in a pot. All i can say when these dishes came out we just looked at them like down the barrel of a gun. It was a ton of food!!! We stared at these huge plates like cowboys in a shootout. The portions are fit for Paul... More

Whether it's breakfast or lunch, you HAVE TO try The Tom Sawyer Restaurant & Pastry. Once you do, you'll be "regulars", as we quickly became after moving to Southeast Boca from Northern CT a couple of years ago. Cozy atmosphere, very friendly staff, and terrific meals served piping hot and pretty quickly. A lot of great Daily Specials and very... More

We were a party of 7 and still were seated in lead than 10 minutes. Waitress was quick and patient. Omelets were good, pancakes were good, chicken salad was fresh but could use a little flavor. Daughter loved her Turkey Club. Stay away from the Chorizo...It tasted and looked like salami. We will be back!

Had a late breakfast there with friends.Small place . In a strip mall & hard to see from the street. You must have address . I passed it & u-turned back. My wife loved the croissant stuffed toast. The portions were large & the wait staff are very efficient . Good place for breakfast.

Don't be scared off by the restaurant's old world interior. Get ready for the best breakfast within driving distance. Breakfast in a pot if your appetite is big... otherwise you can't go wrong with the eggs Benedict's...pancakes... French toast... biscuits and gravy. Can't wait to come back again and again.

This restaurant should be nickname - breakfast heaven!! We were a group of seven and we got seated within 10 minutes.(amazing since is always full) The quality and freshness of the pastries, the options for creating your own breakfast and a friendly, professional server makes for a memorable event. But most important is that it is relative inexpensive compared to... More

Delicious and large size portions coupled with excellent service made for a great breakfast! Our server Cathy, was not only cheerful but extremely helpful when it came to ordering. I had the vegetable omelet which came with two side orders. The two I chose were the home fries and the pancakes. The omelet was huge and the side of pancakes... More

This is a local place best known for its breakfasts, which is what we had. There are a variety of breakfast specials, but we stick to the basics - bacon, eggs, potatoes, toast. The service is fast, the food is hot, the portions are good, and the prices are reasonable. We often recommend this place for friends coming in out... More
