Undistinguished cinder block building housing very distinguished breakfast menu. Try the 7 oz. Angus steak and 3 eggs for $4.79. Then try the fantastic pork chops and eggs. This is definitely a locals joint, but it welcoms newcomers.

Breakfast excellent as always!

I met one of the sons of the owner over a year ago as I changed his moms tire on her VW. He invited me to come sample the food some morning, which I later did and have been bringing many friends and family back to since then. Family run business, all very friendly staff, great service and GREAT... read more

The place is interesting, if you are looking for a funky diner. Portions are large and the food is tasty. I would likely go elsewhere if back in Clearwater.

This is by far the most welcoming family I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Dad (Jim) runs his kitchen like a well oiled machine while Mom (Pam) and the kids (Phillip & Nichole) keep customers smiling, bellies happy, and cups full of coffee. Honestly, my tummy is sensitive to grease but you won't find that here. The portions... More

It's often a wait to eat at the tin Can. The crowds know how great the food is and well worth a few minutes of wait time. Settle in and scan the menu where there is plenty of pallate pleasing dishes. Big plates of exceptionally prepared food out weigh any wait.

Good basic budget diner with big portions of breakfast items. Greek omelette is very good. Staff is very nice. Great value for money but a definite hole in the wall.

We had breakfast there,and was really good. This is meant to be the best place to have breakfast in Clearwater... And we really enjoyed it. Everything was tasty and the atmosphere was pleasant. You might end up queueing a bit (expecially on week end) because the place is well known.

Another morning in Clearwater and it was time to find another breakfast spot… The Tin Can Café is a cute, small, quirky and very popular place. It was mid-morning but there was a sizable line. We even debated looking for another place rather than wait but I figured that by the time we found another restaurant, we’d have already been... More
