They have some wonderful outdoor seating and the staff are very friendly. I had the Very Veggie Benedict with home fries. The home fries were cold, but they replaced them quickly. Their whole wheat toast was delicious. Don't drink the water!

Over Easy has the best breakfast and lunch options on the Island. Their Chicken Salad is wonderful and ask for a side of their raspberry pecan vinaigrette dressing for the salad greens. Delicious!

Great little restaurant. Decorations were fun.Lots of choices for breakfast. My husband had a French Toast egg combo that he enjoyed a lot. I had raspberry pancakes. I find many restaurant pancakes to be disappointing so I often avoid them but these were very good. Lunch is served as well.

Got a late start, and ended up arriving for breakfast at about 10:30. Had about a 40 minute wait for a table, and we almost bailed, but distracted ourselves by walking around the small strip mall--the restaurant's handheld pager works throughout. Breakfast served 7-3, extensive lunch menu served 11-3, so could've ordered from either, but all wanted breakfast. Hubby had... More

Crab and Asparagus omelette was great with hollandaise sauce on the side. Fresh squeezed OJ Mimosa and the coffee was the best I've had on the island.

Another Sanibel eatery with bland food and inflated prices. Try somewhere else. Did have outdoor searing.

Two years ago we never drove out to Over Easy from the east end of Sanibel Island for breakfast. We will for our future vacations on the island. Try the Ruben egg sandwich. Very good.

Between the four of us, we really covered the menu--Bleu Cheese Burger, French Toast with egg, a scramble, and a Spinach and Feta proclaimed to be 'the best omelet I've ever had". There was a wait, but plenty of places to look around.

We liked the atmosphere and food so much, we ate here 3 times in one week. Their pancakes were great, and the service was excellent. We ate outside 2 times - perfect.
