Very friendly staff. There always seems to be a wait, but it is totally worth it. There are plenty of stores around to wander through while you wait the buzzers work throughout the shopping center. Food is great. Big hearty breakfast and not super expensive. Go back again and again!

We stopped at the Over Easy Cafe for breakfast. The Western Omelet was terrific and the orange juice was delicious! We sat out on their front patio area. It was a beautiful morning and it was a a great way to enjoy the morning.

The wait is always long but there are plenty of cute, pricey shops to keep you amused/productive while you wait. And they don't have waffles. That was a disappointment, since I had a yen; but for the most part, the food was delicious. (wish the home fries didn't have so much paprika!) excellent and efficient service. I also love that...

One of the best values on Sanibel. Breakfast is served till 3pm. Didn't get the breakfast but had a really good Chicken salad sandwich. Great service. I'd go back!

Had lunch with a friend and their dog on Friday. What a pleasant day. Dogs are allowed outside on the patio Plenty of room for the dog, nice breeze and fans made it very pleasant. Lunch was fresh and wonderful Two of us had wraps and the other had a philly cheese sandwich. Nice sides and wonderful ice tea. This... More

My husband and I had another great breakfast at Over Easy Cafe. We went a little later than normal and had to sit at the counter but it was fine and we enjoyed our breakfast very much. Always good food, great orange juice and a nice time.

A great breakfast/ lunch menu, have not been for dinner, (only during the season). Both in/outside (covered) dining, dogs welcome outside, you may see several. Well run, efficient wait staff, kitchen does a good job of dealing with the crowds., not long waits for your food. Expect a wait during peak times; there are several shops adjoining if you are...

The food for the four of us was great. The wait time to get it, not so great. So, go there and prepare to have a wait but it is worthwhile.

Over Easy has a big selection of breakfast and lunch items that do not disappoint. Whenever we're on the island, we make a point to go there. The service is friendly and efficient and the food is wonderful- try the Portobello omelet! You can choose indoor or outdoor seating and it is even pet friendly (on the patio).

People rave about this place so we finally gave it a try. We were disappointed. Food was ok, not great. Had to wait over an hour. Probably won't bother going again.
