5 adults and 1 8 year old had full breakfasts. The tab was $70 plus tip. That's about as inexpensive as it gets for meals on the island. This was my second trip to this Resteraunt and we do like it. Very friendly staff and there are a couple of places to shop there.

We had lunch here several times during our stay on Sanibel Island. Convenient location, always satisfying food.

Stopped in for lunch. One of us had a wrap and the other had a salad. The decor, the wait-staff, the food--it was all just ok. Nothing to write home about at all. Nothing particularly bad, but certainly not memorable enough in any respect for us to look forward to going back.

The sausage gravy Benedict, omelet croissant, and sweet buns and muffins are yummy, yummy, yummy. I love the place--every dish I have ordered has been something memorably better than average. My husband and I eat at this cafe at least twice every visit to Sanibel.

Would have probably given this all fives but never got offered more than one cup of coffee and it did seem a bit rushed..bit annoying when you have someone waiting for a table stood next to you while your still eating your breakfast..on the plus side the quality of food is very very good and our experience is I imagine...

we always go back during our week on Sanibel at least 3 times. Food is of high quality (BUT they do need to consider having REAL maple syrup available because, particularly, the stuffed french toast is SO decadent, only real syrup would add a BAM) and service is always prompt. Absolutely love this place

Ate here with my mom in early December. We arrived at 9 before the rush (island time!). Super friendly and efficient staff move at lightning speed, making sure you have everything you could ever want. Perfect eggs, wonderful whole grain toast and a very generous mound of super crispy bacon. Great prices. What more could you want?

Great for breakfast and many different types of omelette. Nice outdoor seating and pet friendly. Try the rye toast. Great shopping next door for after the meal.
