This was one of the best Breakfast I had in my entire Stay in Florida. Friendly Staff took their time, but did not ignore you. Food was excellent and you can not beat their price anywhere at all. Pancakes are out of this world.

Great place for breakfast. The food was wonderful and so much cheaper than hotel room service! It's small so you might have to time it right, but it's worth the wait.

Nice little place to have a real breakfast. Continental Breakfasts and fast food are all this beach had to offer, till we found this place. Great eggs, pancakes, good service too. Short walk from most hotels.

Very convenient access to/from beach through the SurfStyle store across the street. We had omelets and pancakes both days. Pancakes were huge and fluffy, 2 is PLENTY for you. My husband said they were... More

If you want a great breakfast or lunch at the beach and not spend $100 go to the Beach Shanty Café’. Breakfast is always good and the positive reviews are right on so I’ll rant about their lunches. I have to point out they bake their own bread, rolls, etc., and it shows. I had the foot long chili cheese... More

I went there with my mother and two siblings and we had absolutely no complaints. The staff was friendly and although the restaurant was small it seemed clean and inviting. The sweet tea was fresh, fries were hot and the hot Italian subs seemed to be made with ingredients flown straight in from Italy! Everything was clearly made to order... More

This great little diner across the road from the Hyatt Clearwater Beach is a real throwback and for us felt like how an American diner should be. Breakfast was amazing and very good value - two very contented adults crawling out for roughly the cost of a single breakfast over the road. Service is functional with an "I'll get to... More
