“Great Easter breakfast!”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We would have never found this place! My in-laws come here frequently, and I see why. Its a breakfast/lunch diner with a bit of their own vibe to it. Not just the usual fare and they execute it well. The service is outstanding as well. Definitely worth the search!

“Place to go for breakfast”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The breakfasts are great. My husband loves their eggs benedict, and I tend to go for the Florida french toast. Always crowded on Sunday mornings, so we tend to go during the week.

“Okay Breakfast Restaurant”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I liked the fact that you could get in and out pretty quickly. It is my opinion that the breakfast was too pricy for the quality.

“Fresh, tasty breakfasts”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Breakfast here is a highlight of our visits to Fort Myers. Everything is fresh, my husband loves the coffee (even buys a bag of ground coffee to take home). Omelettes are great, but I usually get either the Floridian french toast (with fresh fruit and a yummy blueberry compote) or the fresh fruit crepes with strawberry yogurt on top with granola on the side and a big muffin. The menu is varied, lots of selections. I could eat here multiple times a week and never tire of it!
