Bayview Cafe & Restaurant is like an old fashioned diner that serves up great food with a smile. All waitresses are happy to see you when you walk in and they serve you with a smile. Chefs serve up great breakfast and lunch. Also on the menu: blackened tilapia. This was my second visit in two... read more

We have come twice in two days. Fabulous local short-order cook cafe reminiscent of what dotted every small town in America not too many years ago. Diverse menu, fast service and very tasty. When in Fort Lauderdale pop in for affordable breakfast or lunch in a friendly atmosphere.

OK, to duck in and have a quick burger or sandwich. Always smells smoky (so your clothes do too when you leave), and the place needs a little bit of updating. Personally I prefer the Easy Over Cafe down the street.

Went with family for breakfast based on us reviews. Good, fast, friendly service and great food. Highly recommend for large selection, no frills but quality American food style cafe breakfast.

Went in today always greatest always very friendly Today was waiting to go to appointment and sat a good 10 minutes and walked out. Maybe it has changed ownership? In past have rated 5 star. WHAT A TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT !

Ate an early dinner here, after arriving in Ft Lauderdale (on a cattle-car flight), the day before leaving on a cruise, second week of December, 2014. We didn't get there until close to afternoon closing. The staff (cook & one waitress) were very nice. Food came out quickly & was way better then I'd been expecting. I'd eat there regularly... More

This is my favorite all time breakfast spot. Never a rude waitress and food could not come out any faster. Surprised not more reviews

If you enjoy the small pleasures, like knowing that Smucker's marmalade will be on the table when you arrive. And your food will come out fast and hot, then Bayview is the best breakfast stop for you. The owner works the kitchen, the waitress/waiters are the same people since I have been a regular for 5 years.
