Nice find!

We just discovered this delightful spot and went for breakfast. It is a cozy, casual cafe with super service and a good menu - lots to choose from. We were pleasantly surprised by the choices for coffee so my guy was able to have a robust Italian roast while I had a tamer Dancing Goats brew. The... read more

We both had the turkey reuben and it was very excellent along with the service. We ate on the patio which is nice and cozy, in the sun. Will come back for breakfast after an early AM bike ride.

Went yesterday for breakfast and had the salmon eggs Benedict and found it very good and the coffee was good. Staff was very friend and helpful. Came back the next day for lunch and had the Classic Ruben. Good sandwich but lacked enough sauerkraut. The staff was very friendly, the seating arrangements are very comfortable.

Great food and great service. The cappacino and lattes were excellent! We had 6 people grandparents to teens and everyone enjoyed the breakfast. Big portions. The wastusi sandwich, eggs Benedict. The grits were excellent, smooth, thick and creamy! Highly recommended. Best place I've eaten for breakfast so far. Reasonably priced.

Went on a tip from a friend's son and have added it to our go to places on Hilton Head. The atmosphere was welcoming and warm from the moment we walked in. Our server, Jessica, exudes personality. The food is terrific and the coffee may be the best we've ever had. We returned a second day just for what we... More

The breakfast was great! I ordered the stuffed French toast and it was perfect. Hubby ordered the florentine quiche and it was so good. Perfectly cooked, nice a fluffy. We were also there when they had a free mimosa per person. The waitress was so nice! I forgot her name but wish I would remember because she was very helpful... More

We really loved the food and atmosphere at Watusi, enough to go twice in our one-week stay at HHI. We tried the omelets (breakfast all day!), and came back for the delish bagette sandwiches. Loved the fresh veggies in both. They serve Dancing Goats coffee, one of my favorites ... The atmosphere is definitely warm and welcoming (hi, Natalie!) and... More

My husband and I went to Watusi's for breakfast today. When we were seated we told the waitress that we had a BOGO coupon. We ate a delicious breakfast and when we received our bill we were told the BOGO was not good on a holiday. Today is Martin Luther King day. We were surprised and also wondered why we... More

I'm sorry you were unable to use your Bogo during your visit. It was the servers first table and unfortunately she didn't realize, like yourself, that it was in fact Martin Luther King Day. I agree with you, this should of been an exception, considering you informed her upon seating that you had a buy one get one free coupon.... More
