The food was awesome - eggs, breakfast sandwiches, muffins....service was attentive, the staff was friendly and personable. They have an outside dining area - which is pet friendly - a nice... More

My family's two favorite breakfast places on the island are Over Easy Cafe and The Lighthouse Cafe; we've eaten at each one more than a dozen times. The menu at Over Easy has pretty much anything you could want for breakfast. The best thing on the menu is the orange roll; I highly recommend getting one to share in addition... More

Always delicious and plentiful. Stepped away feom my normal Farmer's Skillet choice this week and had a great omelette instead. Do not miss the orange juice. To say it is fresh squeezed in this day of such statements doesnt even do it justice. This stuff is heaven in a glass and fresher than you can get unless you have your... More

Been here dozens of times, it's always great. There is also always a wait because everyone knows how good it is!!!! The omelettes are great but so are their sweets (pancakes & french toast). And dont forget the "Sunrise Mimosa" for special occasions! :)

I went here with my family for breakfast and it was amazing. I got the stuffed French toast with chocolate chips. It was good. I would suggest coming here for breakfast. I would come back again.

The Over Easy Cafe is one of our favorite breakfast stops while on the island. Have tried numerous items on the menu and have been very pleased with everything we have tried. Indoor and outdoor seating and is 'pet friendly' outside. Highly recommend for a relaxing breakfast!

Quality food, large portions, happy employees, and hands on owners! Go early AM to avoid a wait...and to make sure you get a homemade cinnamon or orange roll!

Had breakfast one morning on my vacation...Friendly service, good food served as ordered, indoor and outdoor seating. I had French toast, eggs and bacon and it was all great. The syrup was a bit thin and overly sweet...prices are a bit high for breakfast but then again it is a vacation destination!
