If for no other reason go and get the homemade cinnamon roll. You will not be sorry. Had eggs and banana pancakes. Sooo good. My wife had the BLT and was definitely happy with the choice. Bacon was not the best. Over done. But that was our only complaint. Waitress could have had a little personality. Oh we'll.

We usually go on Saturday before leaving the Island, but got smart this year and went midweek. No wait! Yay! The food is worth waiting for, but hey, if you don't have to it's even better. Cinnamon rolls are a must. They did run out once so don't wait too late! Fresh orange juice is heavenly. Service is great. Dog... More

We were given the name of Over Easy Cafe to eat breakfast by the concierge at the Marriott by the bridge over to Sanibel. We wanted to go over and shell before leaving for Naples. When shelling it is best to go at low tide which was 11:27am. We ate at Over Easy before shelling around 10:00. It was really... More

Visited the Over a Easy Cafe again today with my family and we were not disappointed. Always a friendly welcome and by far the best breakfast on the island! Would definitely recommend a visit if you are visiting Sanibel.

We had breakfast here on a Sunday and it was packed given that it is a small place. We had a 30 minute wait for a group of 6 to sit inside. Too hot for me outside, but many people seemed comfortable out on patio. The good thing was that the pagers are long range so we were able to... More

Excellent service and food, go early there is usually a waiting line! Eat outside or in, for being busy the service is fast with plenty to chose from!

We wanted to have breakfast and were seated on the terrace. There werre four dogs around. The waitresses feeded the dog with cookies, than bringing food to the guests. The guest were feeded their dogs from their plates. I like dog, but this is disgusting. This restaurant has a serious hygiene problems. Maybe dog owners might like it.

The prices are a little on the high end, but the food was delicious and we found a 10% off coupon in a tour book for orders of $25 or more. Our bill was $24.88 including tax, and the waiter was very gracious to allow us to use the coupon. Their OJ is truly fresh-squeezed!
