“So so lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Had lunch at the Sanibel Cafe. The fried chicken dinner was pitiful. Dry, small pieces of chicken and mashed potatoes that were clearly from a box. The bleu cheese burger was tasteless. Instead of actual bleu cheese there was a very thin layer of bleu cheese dressing. Finally gave up and put ketchup on it so it would taste like something. Fries were overcooked. Service was very slow. Definitely won't return.

“Perfect Brunch Spot”

My wife and I ate here a couple of times for Breakfast and Brunch; they have an awesome, simple menu, and loads of charm. The food and atmosphere are stellar, and you will not regret a visit!

“Good service and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Excellent comprehensive breakfasts of eggs, hash browns, toast and bacon also sausage biscuits and gravy with coffee and juices. Busy without being full but meals came quickly and were tasty. Free Wi-Fi allowed us to plan our day whilst enjoying breakfast here. Would dine there again.
