Good breakfast, good service and an island favorite. Highly recommended. Is in a good location so very easy to get in/out of, one of the best items i've had here are the pancakes , they are huge and oh so delicious.

This is a must-do I for breakfast or lunch if you're on the island. It's small and fills up quickly but the service is exceptional and it turns over quickly. Everything we tried was very good.

I hate to review this place because it will only make the lines longer for me. So my advice, go early and get a table outside. However, eating inside is also a treat because of the fun French provincial style table cloths and fun rooster and hen art work. The food is yummy and portions are large. An added benefit... More

Popped in here after seeing a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast, staff were friendly and helpful in suggesting what to have. It's a good spot to have a wander around some local shops either before or after eating.

Who has the best breakfast is a hotly debated topic. For me, it's the OEC hands down. Start with the ridiculously huge and delicious cinnamon roll, then order some breakfast. You can't go wrong, but I am partial to the southern eggs benny. Perfectly poached eggs and sausage gravy.

We went to this little place expecting it to be a run-of-the-mill breakfast place without a lot of variety. I can still taste the Rueben Benedict. It was excellent! The breakfast potatoes were very good, as well. Hubby loved his breakfast, too. It was extraordinary. The wait was long, but so worth it. There was inside and outside seating, and... More

The Over Easy Cafe was very busy but worth the wait. Excellent service and food. We loved it! It is in the perfect location close to everything. Go early to avoid a possible wait.
