Had breakfast here twice during our weekend in Sanibel. Great menu selection and prices are very reasonable. They have good options for paleo eaters as well. Service is friendly and fast.

We came in mid September and this little restaurant wasn't open until our last day on the island, it was worth the wait. We were warmly greeted and given our drinks promptly. Breakfast was delicious and if you leave hungry, you didn't clean your plate. Thanks for a great final breakfast, Over Easy!

Love the great variety of food and the wonderful atmosphere. Service is fantastic. We had the pulled pork sliders and lived them. Recommend eating in the French inspired outdoor area.

One of my favorite meals is the Key lime chicken wrap with their pasta salad. Breakfasts are served from 7AM till closing at 3PM. Two of our favorite breakfast items are... More
