We had breakfast at this restaurant that was simply mediocre, but pricy. They charge Starbucks prices for a very weak tasting coffee.

Blue Dolphin Cafe is good for breakfast and lunch. The breakfast menu is typical - omelets, Belgian waffles, eggs made to order. The omeletes are large, fluffy and tasty. The sausage pattys are ok - standard thin non-descript. The Belgian waffle was good, served with an excellent scrambled egg and bacon. The facility is very cute and VERY clean - except the ladies washroom could use some attention- dusty. Servers are friendly and fun - but never came back to refill coffee cups. $24.00 and change for breakfast -
a little high, but would go back.

Often have to wait for a table, but you get more than you can eat of really tasty, well-prepared food for lunch or breakfast.

Located on St. Armand's Circle. Worth the trip from LBK to have breakfast at the very busy Dolphin Cafe!

The Blue Dolphin Cafe is the best place in Longboat Key for breakfast. The food is exceptional and the staff is friendly. They have wonderfully decadent breakfast creations, along with great regular items such as the best fluffy scrambled eggs we've ever eaten! The location is great - right in St. Armand's Circle! There is plenty of parking close to the Cafe. Don't miss an opportunity to try The Blue Dolphin!
