Great Food and Service

Nice place! It was easy walking distance from resort so we ate breakfast there on several occasions. The staff was very nice and the food was good.

Unique menu, extensive selection, high quality food in generous portions, and FANTASTIC service. The island decor is fun and the atmosphere is friendly and inviting. They handle the crowds very efficiently. This is a Must Do for breakfast in Islamorada.

Stopped here for the first time as we made our way south and were very happy we did! Place was packed but the staff was friendly and had a good system in place to get us seated quickly. The inside decor is fun and bright with lots to look at. Portions were generous and hot and our server was attentive.... More

3rd year Family vacation in Islamorada and Mangrove Mike's is definitely the best place for breakfast! We love the food so much we leave our resort just to have breakfast every morning during our 7 day stay. Great food, great service, friendly staff, great Cinnamon Rolls & the best French Toast. Thank you for the continued tradition! See you next... More

Stopped here for a quickie breakfast with friends while traveling on business and as usual, planned on having nothing but coffee. I'm on a Gluten Free restricted diet and rather than eating a plate of bacon, sometimes I just have to wait until something else comes along. Well, they had plenty of options! GF French toast, GF breakfast wraps and... More

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast and it was very busy. We were greeted by the friendly hostess and assured our wait would not be long.It wasn't too long and we were seated. The food was very good with my eggs cooked exactly like I asked! I even got cayenne pepper for my grits which I love. A... More

We went here for breakfast and were seated almost immediately. Our server came over quickly for our drinks. While waiting for our food, a palmetto bug was crawling on the wall. I understand it's Florida and these things are everywhere, but we were grossed out and had a hard time regaining our appetite after that, especially after it crawled towards... More

As the Owner & Operator of Mangrove Mike's since 1998, I truly apologize for your last expierence dining with us. You are very understanding and correct about the South Florida's problems with Palmetto Bugs. But, with that being said it is totally unneceptable to have any in My Cafe, and it is something that we take Very Seriously. For the... More

We went back to Mangrove Mike's three times, all for breakfast and twice for sandwiches to be eaten at lunch. Two of the three times, there was a short wait for tables, but that wasn't an issue. The menu is broad and generally well done. Service is friendly and quick. Food preparation was above average. The oatmeal was the best... More
