Consistently good food, service is polite and efficient, home made jellies and jams are delicious. Glass tops on the tables cover beautiful shell arrangements.

The service was great and the food was very fresh and yummy. The homemade jam they had was really good. Should have eaten here the last day of our trip as well. Would recommend if you are looking for fresh food.

Ate here twice. Loved the french toast. Didn't care for the poached eggs, but I ordered my eggs medium not realizing that they wouldn't be runny, then. Husband loved his omelets. Nice folks there. We would eat here again.

I had a very very difficult time choose breakfast and opted for the French toast trio. One had coconut, one had almonds and one had corn flakes. I loved loved loved the crispy edged texture combined with the soft interior plus the salty/sweet flavor when the coatings are combined with the slight powdered sugar and cinnamon sprinkle. DO NOT put... More

Went to Sanibel Cafe for breakfast this morning. The Country Benedict was delicious. My husband had Meat Lover's omelette, which he enjoyed. My daughter, of course loved the M&M pancakes from the kids menu. Service was good.

We stopped by here because we had a Kiwanis coupon. Sure glad it brought us here! Loved our food. I had the shrimp omelet which was topped and filled with delectable shrimp and havarti cheese. Total yum! It came with hashed browns and cheese grits which made for more than I can eat. Mrs. M got scrambled eggs and a... More

We went here for breakfast. It is a popular place on the island so I expected it to be really good. I have to say I was a bit disappointed. My husband said the coffee was not good at all. He would not recommend ordering it and he is not a snob about his coffee. He really enjoyed his omelet.... More

Food was good, a traditional breakfast. Service was horrible. No refills. Never came back after delivering our food. Don't think we will be back

We went there for breakfast and their menu has a lot of interesting selections, but we went with the yogurt parfait. It was served in a banana split dish with an assortment of raspberries, blueberries, cantaloupes and grapes mixed with granola. The muffin of the day was a lemon poppy muffin, split in half and grilled. This was a great... More
