The café on Longboat Key is larger than the original location on St.Armands Circle, but it has the same extensive menu and same outstanding food and service. Breakfast at Blue Dolphin is famous for their egg dishes and pancakes. Fresh orange juice and great coffee and other interesting dishes ensure a wonderful breakfast experience. The lunch menu is equally extensive. Dinner is also served on Longboat Key but not their other location. Service is equally outstanding, and though their sometimes is a wait, it is well worth waiting for.

Blue Dolphin was recommended to us as a great breakfast place. This eatery was bustling. There was a long wait for larger families on Sunday morning but we were able to walk in and sit right at the counter. The staff is friendly and attentive. Great tasting fresh squeezed OJ and waffles to die for. Great food, reasonable prices. A must visit !

Wife and I ate here with two grandkids. Staff was real nice to the little ones (8 and 6). Beautiful inside. Meals were not enormous but just the right size as we wanted no take home items. Stingy with the coffee but overall it was Very Nice and not expensive.

We have been going to the Blue Dolphin for years! Best Eggs Benedict! Service is great...specials are spot on! We prefer the St. Armand's location over the LBK but food is good at both!
