Great breakfast in a neat restaurant. Located in a lovely wee house the Brown Hound Bistro is not your average place. Food is well above average and surprising.

We had breakfast here last Sunday morning. It was a beautiful day for a ride. We both had the French toast with cinnamon swirl bread. It was quite tasty and the maple syrup was also delicious. The only problem with that place is that it's too small. Our table was too small. Service was very good.

The staff are friendly, and it's wonderful to sit outside on the porch in summer. Because it's a small restaurant, you may have to wait a bit to get your order... More

I have been to Naples several times and never knew about this cute little quaint restaurant. Every food item we ordered was cooked to perfection, Chef is very talented, we will be visiting more often when we visit Naples.. Thank you.
