We came here for breakfast. It was fabulous. Mis-matched, charming coffee mugs for your piping hot coffee. Well-presented breakfast fare. He had biscuits and gravy and raved about them. I had Dot's special and it was just right. They also specialize in French toast, waffles, pancakes and an assortment of scrumptious sounding omelets. The finishing touch is the Tater Tot... More

If you are looking for a very good breakfast in Islamorada this is the place to go. They have all of the breakfast favorite plus a number of special dishes. Always large quantities and always very good. Top notch, eye pleasing service at reasonable prices. If you go in after 8:30 be prepared for a short wait. Well worth it.

Low key, delicious, and won't break the bank. Mangrove Mikes is popular enough to occasionally have a wait time, but explore the fun art for awhile and you'll be seated in no time. Friendly staff and the food is quick too!

This was a real gem of a place. It really feels like a place for the locals and food was great (we had the gyro flat bread and the po boys with shrimp). Low prices and great feel to the place. Highly recommended!

Amazing breakfast. Great service. I got the blue crab meat eggs Benedict and it was one of the best things I have ever eaten for breakfast. Our kids split the pumpkin and cream cheese French toast and it was a sweet treat for them. My husband got the kitchen sink omelet and it was hearty. Portions are huge and everything... More

My wife had a simple meal of oatmeal with fruit and I had an omelette with lots of ham and plenty of cheese, and good hot coffee. Our waitress was cheerful and helpful in discussing other dining option sin town. A... More
