Super cute cafe! Filled with chickens and bright colors! I had the French toast drenched in syrup. My son had the lox and eggs. My toast tasted like my mom's and my son loved his lox!! Definitely will go back on our next trip to Sanibel!

This is a must for breakfast while visiting the island. The friendly owners and staff make you want to come back again. You can sit inside or out depending on the weather and it's also dog friendly! Only open for breakfast and lunch.

Went for breakfast, party of 5. We were seating quickly inside and the food came out quickly as well. Server was not super friendly but adequate I suppose. We all had egg dishes, all cooked the way requested. GREAT sourdough toast and strong coffee! Interior is very farmhouse chic and there is outdoor seating available.

Always a good place to get breakfast - even if you have to wait. I tried to be good to my waistline and on the first morning just got scrambled eggs, bacon, and coffee giving my grits to my husband. But on the second day we gave in to temptation and ordered pancakes and French Toast! This is our favorite... More

Clearly this place specializes in breakfast and we usually make it here once during each stay on the island. There is covered outdoor seating where folks often bring their cutie dogs and, of course, there is an indoor dining room. I always get the fresh orange juice for sure, and this time went for the sausage-forward Ya-all's Southern Benedict, which... More

We went to the Over Easy Cafe while visiting Sanibel on the last day of our vacation and we were very please. They have a variety of breakfast choices and the food is great. We were a group of 6 and at the end of our meal we were all happy. The prices are very reasonable for what you get.

We were vacationing on Sanibel and one of our group of 6 girlfriends had a sister who had eaten here the previous week and highly recommended it to us. We were glad we stopped in for lunch. The summer salad (and wrap) with homemade dressing was delicious. The onion rings included a tasty spicy sauce. The mushroom bacon burger and... More

Breakfast here is fun. Get there early cause the place is jammed. You can easily wait 45 mins to seat- quicker if you take the counter. Bright cheery decorations and well prepared food from an expansive menus. These people really work. Sit at the counter and watch the main cook churn it. Very entertaining. My kind of breakfast for sure
