You know it must be good when the locals eat there too! The staff is friendly, the breakfast good, and the décor fun to look at (the shells in the table). Last time we went during our trip, the waitress let my husband play the guitar that was hanging on the wall. You can't go wrong if you want simple... More

The menu is full of all the standard options with nothing standout that we noticed, but the meals that we chose were presented nicely and tasted great. Excellent friendly service, and very nice decor and atmosphere.

The service was friendly and efficient. This is a small cafe in a strip mall while cute and old florida in decor they place orders on ipads and have fast service. The biscuits and gravy were wonderful, the hashbrowns well cooked and they offer a few unique items too. Very much enjoyed and would have returned if we didn't go... More

We stopped here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised! The decor is adorable, the service was great and the food was very good. I had a Greek omelet and my husband had a cheesesteak sandwich that he said was far better than the one he had at Doc Ford's. The prices were what I would call "Sanibel reasonable". Overall, a...

Service, portion size, food quality, cleanliness, price value, retail ie Home Made Jelly, shirts hats, coffee mugs & management. Buy... More

This was our 2nd time on the island, and we were anxious to return to Sanibel Café again--it did not disappoint. We had breakfast one day and lunch another. We found the food to be excellent for both, and the prices could not be beat. I had their shrimp salad for lunch, and was very surprised and pleased to see... More

My husband and I had breakfast here on a recent trip to Sanibel. We went late on a Sunday morning. It was pretty busy, but we got a table right away. I had the almond french toast and my husband had the breakfast quesadilla. Both are recommended. The portions were good size and the prices were reasonable. We liked the... More
