Amazing atmosphere, mediocre food

Sand Box Cafe is the most well designed place on the island. The eating atmosphere is amazing. However, I do feel the food is overrated. But with great service and great vibes, I would recommend people to definitely take a trip here and see for yourself.

‎Let's just say, it would be 8 yums/thumbs up (family of four), but one of our hands was too busy digging in to our delicious breakfast! Key Lime pie stuffed french toast. Yes, it was THAT good! Service was impeccable. It was a bit pricey, but given we ate enough for breakfast and lunch, it was worth it! All I... More

Enjoyed breakfast with wife and in-laws. Some very interesting breakfast specials. Everyone enjoyed their breakfast and I would have given it 5 stars but the sausages were a little tasteless. Service was excellent.

Really not much to say here. The best breakfast on the island, fresh food, smiling faces, and vibrant decor. A must visit.

We had a very tasty breakfast and we met the owners right away with smiles on their faces. Dana the owner suggested breakfast choices that we "had to try". She treated us as if we were family! Everything that we had was amazing, so good that we came back the next day and had breakfast again!! Dana greeted us with... More

The only place to have breakfast out is this place. Do not go if you want eggs. You can get them anywhere. You need to get the sizzler or one of the stuffed French toasts. Amazing!!! Fun place with great staff.

Sandbox Cafe is a favorite of our family. The sizzler is great - the lines on a weekend morning are not ;-/ - but that's life at the shore on a weekend! If its good, its crowded!

The sandbox has great breakfast...often has along wait time though. The french toast is out of this world. I understand that they have a bathhouse attached, which is wonderful for day trips.
