Breakfast was amazing! Service was fast and food came out quickly. It was like the freshly picked the toms from the vine.

Over Easy Cafe was easy to find on Tarpon Bay Road. Breakfast was excellent and service was quick. Outside seating is available so bring your dog along. Enjoy the little gift shops next to the restaurant.
