Visited the Sanibel Cafe twice during our stay on Sanibel, breakfast and lunch and enjoyed it each time. For breakfast, try the Sanibel Style omelette - if you like shrimp - because it is loaded with them. It contains shrimp, herbs and Havarti cheese and it is so yummy. For lunch I tried the Rusty Pelican which is turkey with... More

Had a hard time deciding..Lots of selections. I went with Greek omelet and my wife had eggs Benedict. My omelet was good. Her eggs were overcooked but they cheerfully replaced them and they were excellent. Nice atmosphere. Located in nice shopping area that was good for looking around.

We ate a very good lunch at this cute cafe. I had a fish reuben sandwich which was very yummy and a huge pile of fries that cannot be eaten by one person (or even two in our case). Another person had a turkey roll-up and stated that it was very good and another had the shrimp salad croissant with... More

Started and ended our week's vacation at Sanibel Café. Delicious breakfast and good coffee. Loved the home fries. The service was good and the girls are very sweet and attentive. Jam was delicious so bought a jar to take with us. Loved the atmosphere--glass on top of tables with shells underneath is a nice island touch! Will be back there... More

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