We enjoyed breakfast so much went back the next day. For 7 people who had everything they wanted for reasonable amount. I have sons with big appetites so this is a find for a family. The service is fabulous and clean. I cannot recommend the "Blue Dolphine Cafe" enough. The best feature is we did not feel rushed even though there was a waiting line. Easy walk from you Hotel.

Walked to the Blue Dolphin on St. Armand's Circle and it was delicious. Best Oatmeal with brown sugar and fresh strawberries. If you like Pancakes be sure to have theirs. Lots of fruit and whipped cream. Coffee, as with most places, tasted like nothing. Starbucks is not far away if you need a good fix.

We waited just a bit for a table on a weekend morning, but it was well worth the wait. A large menu made picking just one thing tough, but we made our decision then kicked back to wait. It was a short wait and when the waitress set the plates in front of us, we knew we wouldn't need breakfast OR dinner. Huge quantities of food... If you're a log eater, you might want to select something and share with a friend. Husband had French toast and when his eyes rolled back in his head, I KNEW he was a happy camper. I had eggs, bacon and home fries - obviously homemade and delicious. We look forward to our next trip back!!!

Super food, service and atmosphere. Great food and value for money. Just be prepared for a wait at weekends, but at least you are offered coffee while you wait. Service with a smile- unlike the Sandbar on Anna Marie Islabd. They should send staff here too for customer service lessons!

Visiting from UK. On recommendation, we have ploughed our way through the blue dolphin special, corned beef hash and some mimosas. The staff, the service and the food are in a class all if their own. The quality of the produce, the helpfulness of the staff- especially Jackie giving us the scoop on Siesta Key. The short queue speaks volumes of how popular this place is and it's well worth the wait!
