The Best and Consistently Good

Our family has been coming to Sanibel for over 40 years for summer vacations and in all that time I would say Over Easy Cafe is easily the best and most consistently good restaurant on the island.

Couldn't wait to stop here based upon the reviews we read on TripAdvisor. Let me say this....no clue why people think this place is great. Service - rushed, insincere and not up to my standards. Food - small portions & overpriced. Would not recommend.

We thought that going to a very popular place for breakfast would be as good as everywhere else we have been on the island. How wrong we were. Everything that could be cooked ahead and kept warm was. The sausages were long past being even mediocre. Cool and chewy. The pancakes weren't bad but obviously not made to order. The... More

This place is definitely a gem! So glad we tried it, I had the omelet on a croissant! Heavenly for sure, it comes with fruit, grits or home fries. I got the fruit. And their sweet tea is awesome, you just can't get that kind of tea in New England! My husband had the French toast and enjoyed it. He... More

Definitely top 3 for breakfast on Sanibel. Fun for all ages and a wonderful place to start the day. Known for their breakfast, but lunch options are outstanding as well. Just note they close at 3:00 p.m.

Huge portions and the service is excellent. The wait may be long, but once seated they'll get you out of there in no time. Portions are large and piping hot. (I can't figure out how that get that right every time!) The only downside, is that their home fries taste tinny - something's not exactly right. I love going there... More

Over Easy is centrally located in a plaza. Food is very Delicious and Service is top notch. Very accommodating for pets with their outdoor patio. A plus fro pet owners, Island Paws Pet Store is in same plaza and they are on the list to stop every year!

My family and I visited this cafe a couple of times during our stay on Sanibel. It's a great place for grabbing a decent breakfast. I'd recommend the traditional eggs Benedict- tremendous. It's always busy so be prepared to wait for a table. There are shops adjacent so you can browse/shop while you wait. Great for adults & kids. Great... More
