“Unexpected Bonus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Our travel group always arrives early for flights. We were leaving Florida and hadn't thought we had time for breakfast. We were early enough that the terminal wasn't operating yet! That's when we "discovered" a most pleasant bonus to our trip "the Sky View Cafe" What made it such a highlight was the friendly waitstaff. The food was great but what I admired was our waitress putting our order for four in before a table of 25. I don't know how the staff managed to wait on so many and still get it right and she didn't hurry us. What a wonderful to finish our stay!

“What a find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Pleasantly surprised to go here at the local Airport. And it was busy! The server I had was so very friendly. Food pricing is great.... Had a generic eggs and toast with coffee, but good.
I have to go back and try some of the unusual menu items.... soon!

“Steak and blue cheese crumbles salad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Not on the menu but you can ask for it. Steak done just right with blue cheese crumbles on a good portion of greens. Lots of people who have aircraft at the airport or small groups like the boat club eat here on a regular basis.

“Unique Crunchy French Toast at the airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

Crunchy French toast is actually French toast coated with cinnamon oatmeal and it's very good. The service was excellent and friendly. The restaurant is actually at the end of the airport and you need to park in the short term parking lot which is free for the first two hours. Some neat model airplanes are hanging inside.

“Great cup of coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

My son and I love our weekend breakfasts here.
He's into the crunchy french toast.
Me? I go there for their own recipe sausage patties.

My son and I love the big windows overlooking the airport, especially when a
larger airline is parked right next door at the terminal.

Even when packed with people in season, the people there are fast, and
actually take a second or two to joke with my boy's drawings on the place mats.

It's the little things.
