Great lunch options

Lots of good options for lunch and my wife especially loved the salad with chicken salad, tuna salad and egg salad. Super nice staff and KC Royals fans too!

This was our first time to try this restaurant and we loved it. Great breakfast and awesome fresh squeezed orange juice. Pancakes were good too. Staff was very friendly.

We ate outside two times, a few minutes wait for a table the second time. Tex, our Bichon Frise dog was able to sit with us at the table. Food and service were excellent. The parfait, Mexican burrito, and eggs with bacon were all good.

By and far our favorite place for breakfast on the island. My kids practicly beg to come back here. In all my visits over the years I have never had anything wrong or ever had any bad service. The food is fresh and delicious. You can't go wrong with the giant cinnamon bun! My personal fav is the French toast.... More

This place serves breakfast late. My family are late risers and we ate breakfast here several times around noon. The service was very good and food was great.

This is a favorite breakfast spot on Sanibel. It gets busy very quickly. Food is great, very good coffee. Everything fresh and tasty. Shops nearby to walk through while waiting for your table.

Great place for breakfast! As with most places in Sanibel, the earlier you get there, the less time you will have to wait to be seated. However, if you do have to kill some time, there are great shops to browse just steps away! Impressive menu with Pancakes, French toast, Skillets, Omelets, Scramblers and great specialties. The giant homemade cinnamon... More
