Our very hungry group happened by Minnie's one afternoon and were very pleased with the service and the food. Lucky for us the servers suggested the special of the day - homemade sloppy joe and boy was it good! (The kids in our group had cheeseburgers, which they said were good too). This is obviously a locals place, which is... More

Great place for breakfast. It's a small cafe and a favorite of island locals. I ordered an egg breakfast with blueberry pancakes. The pancakes were plate-sized and absolutely delicious! I will go back to Minnie's any time I am on the island. Highly recommend!

We stumbled on this place while looking for a genuine American breakfast. We had read no reviews so had no idea what to expect. It was a great experience, delicious food in a traditional cafe. Very welcoming and great value. Our whole family loved it so go ahead and try it.

My favorite place to go for a great breakfast on the island. A small, charming cafe that hasn't lost its touch with all of the change and growth on the island. Definitely the best service and breakfast in my opinion. Thanks Minnie's for never letting me down!

We made it as far as the entrance before the very friendly waitress told us that they could not seat all of us together followed by "You can't stand there, now get out of my doorway." I guess a big party looking to spend $100 on breakfast is a bit of a burden for Minnie's to deal with. The waitress... More

Very popular local restaurant, always crowded, often a line outside. An average mom-and-pop atmosphere, nothing special. Food is good, service prompt.

I stopped here one morning at the recommendation of a "local". I ordered an egg, bacon, cheese sandwich to go. The bread was pasty white bread and there was only 1 slice of bacon on my sandwich. For $6 I expected something a little better. Also, they only take cash.

Small restaurant, so if it's busy, you might have to sit outside while waiting for a table, but the food is great, the service is great and the people are friendly! Prices are very reasonable and after breakfast you can walk across the street and talk to all the parrots in their cages in front of the Sun & Sand... More

Great value! Good food and service. Wonderful family cafe. Our family ate at Minnie's Cafe for breakfast. The bisquits and gravy were great as well as our other breakfast items. The service was very friendly and personable. We will certainly stop back in!

This little gem is an amazing place to go for breakfast. the staff is very friendly and helpful with suggestions on not only the menu but things to do on and off the island. It is small and you need to get there early. One really nice feature is a community table. This idea gives you the opportunity to meet... More
