We were glad we stopped here for breakfast. They had good food - and the tables were interesting with all the shells inside of them. My husband had the breakfast that included alligator which he surprisingly liked, and my daughter got a huge kick out of it.

When we're on Sanbiel, we always make it a point to have a breakfast or lunch and Sanibel Cafe. The food is always fresh and tasty and the waitstaff are very friendly. It's good food in a comfortable atmosphere and the price is reasonable.

Missed this breakfast place the first time we drove by the strip mall, but we're glad we circled back. Better breakfast than the one we had at the nearby Over Easy, with friendlier service and better omelette. Recommended breakfast spot, and one where locals gather too.

We tried this restaurant when our usual place for breakfast (over easy) was a big disappointment. This is a small..ish cafe in a strip mall, that is well appointed with glass sea shell tables and an island atmosphere. They serve breakfast & lunch all day, so a last breakfast was what we were looking for. I had the large breakfast croissant and my wife had eggs. Both were hot and served immediately by our friendly and attentive waitress. This may not look like much from the parking lot, but if you are looking for a good...hot...feshly cooked breakfast, this is place for you.....and us, we will be back on our next trip.

You must stop in just to see the tables! The shrimp salad sandwich is very good. Quick service. Great shopping all around after you fill up your tummy! Your kids will love the m&m pancakes served all day. They are only open til 3 so plan ahead!
