I have heard for three years how awesome this place was and finally got around to trying it. My boyfriend and I knew going in that in high season this place is packed so we were ready for the wait. Vinny told us a half hour and it was just about that. Everyone was relaxed waiting even the kids and... More

The Sand Box Cafe is a wonderful place for breakfast or lunch. The outside decor and exceptional menu make the experience one not to be missed. The famous sizzler is a crowd pleaser. Look forward to eating here on every visit to the island. So happy to have a place like this!

Just had breakfast here this morning and it was delicious. The wait staff was very friendly and the omelettes and pancakes were fantastic. I met one of the owners Vinny and he takes great pride in the establishment. The decorations were entertaining and the fountain in the middle of the Cafe was a neat touch. Definitely coming back again.

Love the Sandbox. This year we took a wheelchair with us, they were very helpful in seating us quickly and making sure everyone was comfortable. The wait staff was very friendly, decor is so charming and the food delish!

All of the food is so fresh & special no matter what you order. The waiters & waitresses & waiters have been working there for years & are always very accommodating. Only warning is to get there early. Everyone knows how good the food is so there is always a line of their regulars willing to wait. I dream all... More

My fiancé and I had the most amazing breakfast here. I can not say a more complimentary review of the food as it was incredibly flavorful and filling til the last bite! What was even better was the incredibly welcoming staff-most especially the owners Vinny and Dana. They make you feel like family the moment you walk up to the... More

I was extremely disappointed with the rude server (owner?) that I encountered. I wanted to get a couple coffees to go and was told "no I am to too busy trying to get all these people seated I cannot get you a coffee." I have worked in the food service industry for many years and understand what a breakfast rush... More
