Great place to eat!

WE always eat at the cafe when we visit the island. Mickey Mouse pancakes is always a hit. Lunch and Dinner is great too. Wait staff is always nice.

The food here is good. Children are welcome. The staff works really diligently to keep both inside and outside clean and presentable. That requires lots of hard work, with SO MANY people coming here. Still, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The music every evening is so much fun--as the sun sinks into the Gulf. Very relaxing and happy... More

Went there twice while there. Great outdoor place to take in a drink and sunset. Bar staff is attentive, tables a little sticky.

Nice breakfast but have to say the view was the best part but you really have to watch out for the seagulls they are really hungry.

Food, music, and a great view. All happening with sand between your toes. It is located right on the public beach. Always people around playing volleyball, wading in the ocean or getting some rays. There is a playground close by. Place your order at the window, have a seat, relax and listen to the music. This restaurant is located in... More

We had a good breakfast here. No frills, but a lovely location with yummy pancakes and properly poached eggs. What more could you ask for? Also the lemonade and orange juice ate fresh. Good stuff.

This place is nothing fancy but the location is perfect! Meals are basic, burgers sandwiches and baskets all at a fair price. The drinks over at the tiki bar are also well priced and poured very well! A great place to park your chairs in the sand just beyond and spend the day!

The view from the covered patio cannot be beat as you have a perfect view of white sand and blue water. Nice, quirky menu (think Wild Myakka Boar, etc) and the seafood selection you would expect. My only issue is the prices. I ate a grouper sandwich and ice tea for lunch and my bill was $22 before tip -... More

Sit outside on plastic with the public beach. Fifty bucks will get you and three people an average dairy queen style lunch served thru a window. I'd eat bread in the car off the dash next time instead.
