We visited Sanibel during July 2008. Stopped into the Sanibel Cafe for breakfast after a recommendation by a couple of local Islanders. The atmosphere was tropical, clean & relaxed, food was excellent (sausage & cheese omelet with all the fixins for the wife & "The Real Islander" for me...sauteed gator tail! (Hey I was living dangerously & it was GREAT), the waitresses were friendly, efficient (and attractive :-) ) Both of the owners were there at the time & each came over to our table to check on us. They were very interested in making sure that we were happy & we were impressed enough with the overall experience to go back for lunch, where we were pleasantly surprised to find that our breakfast visit was no fluke. The Rusty Pelican (a grilled turkey delight) and a South of the Border Chicken Sandwich truly fit the bill. We stayed in the Sanibel/Ft.Myers area for a week & we ate at least one meal at this restaurant every day. For sure, we would make it a point to go back there anytime we're in that part of Florida. -JC from Ohio
