Who ever came up with the idea of serving pancakes and coffee at the beach was brilliant. These are great pancakes and sausage. Bloody Mary's are not bad either. Like a grew up with in the north. An excellent way to start the day! One of my favorite places.

At the sunset end of Manatee Avenue you’ll spot from the parking lot what looks like your typical “hot dog and coke” beach snack bar. It ain’t! The Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has a menu that rivals any good inland cafe. Add to that tables in the sand, a full bar serving beer to “boat... More

Walked down the beach this morning to have the "all you can eat pancakes" with sausage breakfast on the beach. Very casual, kind of weird ordering from a window and picking up at the tiki bar but the food was great. If it's cool and you have to eat inside there is very little space and there are gift items...

We had lunch here & would return in a heartbeat! We were recommended by several on the island to have breakfast at the Cafe, but we arrived closer to lunch time. My husband had fish tacos and loved them! I had a tuna wrap & fries which was also really good. You order from a window & they bring the... More

Right on the beach, great service, and good food! Breakfast they have all you can eat pancakes and sausage for $5.99. Full menu for breakfast, eggs, omelets, hash browns grits, etc. We were there for lunch also, and had their fish & chips which was delish and a huge portion, you could easily split this between 2 people or bring...
