Over Easy has delicious food and great wait staff. Be prepared for a long wait to be seated and parking is horrendous. But if you have the time, it's worth the hassle.

Waited for 45 mintues, which seems typical on Sanibel Island. Food was very fast! And delicious! Just your simple breakfast and not huge portions. Very good experience other than the wait to be seated. Server was very pleasant and on top of things, except when the check needed to be split... she got a huge attitude.

Awesome breakfast! Amazing breakfast menu! Love everything I tried. I suggest the over easy scramble or the egg sandwich. Wish this was close to home!

This cafe is located on Sanibel Island on the main road going north. It is a very nice cafe with inside and outside seating. The outside seating had a canopy and window shades to block out the direct sun rays. We beat the breakfast crowd at 8:30 am. The service was fast and very friendly. They had a nicely varied... More

Four of us were headed from Fort Myers to Captiva for a day trip on a cruise. To avoid heavy traffic, we elected to leave early and have breakfast on the way. This turned out to be a great idea. The Over Easy Cafe has indoor and outdoor seating. Service was prompt and friendly. The menu was varied and reasonably... More

After our easy drive over from Fort Lauderdale we encountered the Sanibel crawl once we hit the bridge. It took 20 minutes to get to this spot but it was well worth it. A beautiful morning out on the patio with the freshest orange juice we have had. There was a wait but within 10 minutes we were seated. One... More

Located in an outdoor mini strip mall where even any wait for a table is in pleasant surroundings. Efficient & friendly service. Good food at a reasonable cost.
