OMG!! Great service! Excellent coffee, eggs benedict, pancakes...everything was perfect!! Thoe owners offered information on places to go for dinner and were sooo nice. Our server was a very polite young man. Everything was very clean and flavorful I would go back again and again!

This restaurant is at stop sign on Periwinkle. We love the choices available for breakfast and lunch. Great shops. Be sure to stop and see Dan in his gift shop - two doors from the restaurant.

Outside dining is spacious and clean. Service is outstanding. Serving breakfast all day is great. Owners are always working and are extremely customer focused.

This is the second time we've dined here when visiting Sanibel / Captiva. My daughters opted for the chocolate chip pancakes and the French toast. They both received good portions and everything was cooked perfectly. I opted for an omelette, it turned out fine. The wait-staff was busy, but still took good care of us.

The orange rolls and cinnamon rolls are amazing! They have something for everyone to eat and great service. The corned beef eggs benedict was great.

A family recommendation. Ample portions for the money. Service was quick and friendly. It's not big inside and there is a small outdoor patio seating area. They only serve breakfast and lunch so get there before 3 pm. I hear breakfast is good too but expect a wait. Looking forward to trying that next time.

Get there early or be prepared to wait. The eggs benedict, french toast, made to order omelets are the freshest found anywhere. Homemade deliciousness in beautiful Sanibel. Went two days in a row it was so good!

We have been coming to Sanibel for almost 7 years and this was by far the worst experience for breakfast we have had. We eat breakfast out almost every day, and ride our bikes to where we want to have breakfast. Well, this morning 8/10/14) we walked in, were treated rudely and impatiently, and the hostess shoved an electronic table... More

On our recent trip to Sanibel, we visited Over Easy Cafe because they are dog friendly, and we were not disappointed. The service was good, and the food was very good. The patio is small, and the restaurant gets very busy, so the earlier you can go, the better. We went early both days we ate at the Over Easy... More
