“Good breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

They are known to be the premiere breakfast place on the island and all in all it was a good experience. I had a egg sandwich that was fluffy and on a delicious croissant. My girlfriend had an omelet that was full of toppings. Overall a better than average breakfast place with above average breakfast prices ($25) for two people and we only drank water. I would still go here again just not daily.

“Healthy and tasty food, good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Ate several lunches and 1 breakfast there over 1 month. Always great soup of the day with 1/2 sandwich. Interesting combinations. Wonderful pies made by wife of owner couple, esp the coconut. You can buy the great chicken and tuna salad by the pint to take back to your condo. Only minus is that there is no to-go or online menu.

“Most popular spot on the Island”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We've been on SPI for 4 weeks now, and every time we pass Yummies during opening hours (8am - 2pm) it's been very busy. The first time we ate there was on a Sunday, when it was packed. Had the Eggs Benedict, which I thought was a bit over-priced and over-hyped for what is was. However, went back today (Wednesday) when it was a little less busy, and had a very good experience. Wait staff were friendlier and more attentive, the Cinnamon Coffee was great, as was the Rancheros Santa Cruz (shrimp, egg & bacon). My wife had the Taco plate, which was also good and filling. Atmosphere was enhanced by Hotel California playing on the sound system, and a beautiful sunny morning on the Island!

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed our lunch at Yummie's today. The burgers were great. The salads and sandwiches we saw delivered to other tables looked delicious. The unexpected star of the meal was a piece of grapefruit pie that we shared for dessert. It was wonderful! Great little bistro. Friendly, smiling wait staff and happy customers. We will definitely return.
