Yummy and Worth the Wait

Decided to go out for brunch yesterday. As locals in Ft Myers, we sometimes avoid holiday week-ends on Sanibel, but decided to go anyway and try the Over Easy Cafe as recommended by a friend.

Grits tasted like water, hollandaise sauce was bland. The egg & muffin were good. Coffee poor. Definitely not worth the visit.

My wife and I came her and had about a 30 min wait, but after reading the reviews we would give it a shot. there are small shops right there so it helps pass the time. we started off with the cinnamon roll. big enough to split. then she had corn-beef-hash and biscuts/gravey. She liked it. i had the sausage... More

This is a great spot for brunch (and some shopping afterwards). The cinnamon roll definitely was a highlight but we all enjoyed our meals. Service was friendly and efficient.

Cute cafe with dining inside or out, but be prepared to wait about 40 minutes. Typically, I don't like to wait for a meal, but I was with my niece and she wanted to visit the shops. Plus side is they give you a pager so you can browse and the time goes by pretty quickly. The food here is... More

We came for an early lunch, but ate breakfast food. Food came quite fast, and was reasonable priced. It was crowded, but our wait was only a few minutes. The staff was very friendly to our toddlers. We would eat here again.

A most enjoyable time, good food and service. We had a bit of a wait but we were able to peruse the local shops with our beeper. We sat outside which was pleasant. Dogs are accepted outside . . . there were several present but didn't even notice them, they were so well behaved.

The Over Easy Cafe is very popular with locals and vacationers so getting a table during Sanibel's busy season can take a little time. It's not a large place and only open for breakfast and lunch. There are outside tables under an awning as well as an indoor dining area. Dogs are welcome under the awning if you want to... More

The service here is excellent and the food amazing. The portions are huge and everything is well cooked and just as you request, so eggs are perfectly cooked however you want them. The coffee is excellent and never ending! My side order of corned beef hash was big enough for three. Copious amounts of milk, butter, sauce, jam etc are... More
