The cafe is not very large, they tend to get you in and out quick. We arrived around 9:15 and by 9:30 it was pretty crowded. We went with the omelets when we visited. I really enjoyed mine, my husband had the seafood one, which had FAKE Krab. When you are on an island, you should be serving fresh seafood, even if it is breakfast, even if it is cheaper, even if it is listed on the menu as Krab with a K. But basing this review on my food, it was very filling and a large portion for breakfast. The omelet came with potatoes and toast with homemade preserves. I would be willing to try it again on our next visit. There is nothing exceptional about the place, just a great location for those staying on the east end by the lighthouse.

We had a nice breakfast here, but nothing to write home about. We both ordered mimosas but could only get one because they ran out of orange juice. Really? A breakfast place running out of orange juice at 9:30 a.m. on a Friday? There are limited breakfast options on the island so it is worth stopping on your way to Lighthouse Beach.

We stopped here just by chance, because we were in Sanibel Island and the rain surprised us.
Thanks to it, we stayed in one of the best places we have been in our trip in Florida. We had omelette and pancakes, with coffee and juice.
Simple and great at the same time, exceptionally cooked, in a place with a pleasant atmosphere and a very good service.
Reasonably priced.
Parking just outside.
The only negative point is that they are not near of my home!

Whether it is featured a s a special or not, this friendly, local reasonable cafe will cheerfully produce a signature serving of coconut french toast. The cinnamon raison french toast, egg sandwiches, and key lime pie were also quite good...just not quite as knock-your-socks-off. I really appreciated the opportunity to purchase real Vermont maple syrup instead of enduring the cheap knock-off. We'll be back next time we visit Sanibel.

Out of all the breakfast places in Sanibel, this is our absolute favorite. We always get the omelet with the turkey, broccoli and cream cheese - which is terrific! We usually also get one of the egg specials of the day which is also always excellent. The jam that they serve, which you can also buy, is just so tasty too! Love this place!!
