We discovered the Sanibel Cafe in a small strip center on last year's visit to Sanibel, and it hasn't lost a thing a year later. Still good service, good food and an acceptable value for Sanibel. We stopped by a couple of days ago with a family of five and everyones food was enjoyed. What always stands out though, is the friendly service. Thanks ladies!

I remembered being charmed by this little cafe as a child, with all of the cool shells in the glass tables to ooh and ahh over. It's a much better breakfast than the Lighthouse Cafe which boasts the best. French toast done half a dozen different ways, the sanibel omelette and a decently sized charcoal grilled piece of ham steak satisfied the entire family. The biscuits and gravy are superb and they do their own homemade jelly! I love the raspberry.

I found this place while driving around the island, and returned several times because they offer breakfast all day long, their prices are reasonable compared to other island eateries, and the tables are beautiful. Each is a display case for an original work of art made from shells. I liked them so much, I ended up buying $2 postcards of my favorite tables.

Food was good very friendly service knowledgeable about the menu and food. My only complaint would be they need to change up the kinds of quiche they have ate there every couple days always the same kind.

Stopped here for Sunday brunch on a day trip to Sanibel. We split the French toast trio - three slices (one each) of coconut, almond and Corn Flake-coated French toast. Yum! Service was friendly and quick.
