We thought it was just a little coffee shop but they actually serve a large breakfast. Get their early as the seating area is small but is very quaint. The service is attentive and the food is good. We tried the oven baked French toast...More

I never miss the chance to have the Hot Nancy Nob Sandwich with a side of orzo salad. The atmosphere is very homey inside. The linzer cookies were raspberry perfection.

Thank you Barbara for your kind review. Very much appreciated. The Beet Salad is a special recipe that often gets overlooked because many people don't think they like beets due to bad experiences when beets were served in their high school cafeterias !! But, beets...More

Thank you for your inquiry. Yes. We make traditional Easter Challah Bread. We also have a wide assortment of other fresh baked buns like Swedish Cardamom rolls. But, unfortunately not the poppyseed strip cakes.

Signe's Heaven Bound Bakery & Café has been a Hilton Head Island tradition since 1972. Signe Gardo still coordinates the operation, which has been featured in numerous national publications as well as the Food Network for its eclectic breakfast and luncheon menu. All-day breakfast includes a remarkably delicious baked French Toast (blueberry, blackberry and old fashioned) as well as fluffy frittatas, hearty shrimp & grits and an assortment of fresh pastries. An array of Signe's specialty salads appeal to local vegetarians as well as her quiches and tarts. Sandwiches run the gamut from turkey & cranberry to Hot Reubens. Then, of course, there are desserts - lots of them, including our renowned double-chocolate "Mud-dauber" cupcake to sweet-potato/pecan pies, fresh key lime pie and a choice of cakes by the slice, made daily.
