Still friendly and great breakfast

Favorite place for breakfast. The wait staff is friendly and fast. The food is well prepared. We enjoy the omelets as well as the eggs Benedict and French toast. We have never had anything that was not well done and have been coming here for 7 years. Go see for yourselves

We went there for breakfast on a Saturday morning - Wait was about an hour. However, when we got a table, service was very efficient. Food was very good. Recommended.

Varied menu and quality breakfast. Can't go wrong. However extremely crowded but a must visit. Had the s ramble with eggs, potatoes , cheese, muffin and gravy over all. My wife always opts for eggs and bacon. Nice place for breakfast/lunch with family.

Like anywhere on Sanibel if you go during the peak hours expect to wait for a very long time. The food is really good and we go there every visit to the island.

The long wait is worth it. Delicious fresh orange juice, and I like the Y'all Country Benedict--poached eggs with sausage and sausage gravy in place of Hollandaise. Can't miss.

We had breakfast here. My husband had the cinnamon roll which he said was great. I had eggs bacon. Everything was good. Fast once we ordered. Had to edit a bit but seemed like a favorite with a lot of people for this casual restraurant

My husband always enjoys eating at this restaurant, especially for breakfast, because he can sit outside and enjoy the fresh air and the view. It is also a place for those who have dogs on leash to bring with them for outside dining.

We stopped in for a pastry and coffee mid morning. They had the cinnamon roll which I ordered. You better be hungry, because it was the size of a nine-inch plate! Very informal. They allow well-behaved pets, too.

Stopped here for lunch. Indoor and outdoor seating are offered in this cafe with French decor. I have heard breakfast is fantastic here, but we had chili, plus a Ruben and a Rachel sandwich. All were delicious and portions were large enough to provide lunch the next day. Will return!
