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.

Wonderful sunset, but don't plan on getting a mix drink. It is wine-based. Not what we thought we were getting. They don't have a liquor license

Best breakfast in town. Great pancakes. The place is nothing fancy, but the food is good and inexpensive. You order at a window, so sometimes the line is a bit long. They give you a number to put on your table and bring your order to you. All seating is outside, with a beautiful beachfront view. Breakfast with a view... More

Recently family members came to visit from Ohio. They were enamoured with the beach. We loved Anna Maria Island Beach Cafe, because after spending time playing in the water, we could come ashore for a break, enjoy delicious ice cream; then when early evening came on, we could have our supper and enjoy and dance to the live music from...

If you're visiting the area and you're going to the beach, you could do worse than grabbing breakfast before hitting the sand or having a cold drink at the end of the day. Breakfast seems to be a bit better than lunch/dinner most days (waffles are usually spot on). Food quality can be a bit hit or miss. But it's... More

We loved the beachfront location with life guards, volley ball nets and playground for the kids. Change rooms and rest rooms are available. The tiki bar with their cool refillable souvenir glasses has an awesome group of bartenders. Live music nightly is great for people of all ages. We were there for Jesse James and the drum circle and both... More

A great place for breakfast on the beach. For $5.99 you get all you can eat pancakes and sausage. The pancakes were very fluffy and had a touch of vanilla. We also ordered the ham and cheese omelet that came with home fries and toast for $7.99. Lots of food for the money. The staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

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
