Was warmly greeted by Jess and Melanie upon entering- we ordered our coffee drinks and took a two top seat along the side. Service was a little slow onyl because they were hopping with customers! We came in two days in a row because my wife and I loved the food and the personal feel from the staff. I had the Pecan Pie coffee whih was amazing! Never had one before! My wife had a Sand Dollar (vanilla and cinnamon) which she enjoyed as well! I had a breakfast crossaint sandwich with ham, egg and provolone, which was very soft and flaky! The sandwich was definitely fresh which i appreciated. My wife had the Hilton Head scrambler which was good as well. Our second trip we had our scramble order taken incorrectly and they brought out the hilton head when we ordered the high tide. Melanie promptly apologized and took carw of everything for us- truly great customer service- the error was understandable as the place was truly busy! I was happy with how she fixed the issue- and would happily return on our next vacation- thank you tripadvisor people who recommended this spot before we came!

Friendly staff, great food! We went there 5 times in one week -- for smoothies, coffee drinks, and a full breakfast. A great new find in Hilton Head!

Thanks to the reviews here, my husband and I made a point of checking out Watusi during our recent visit to Hilton Head and we were not disappointed! It's a rather small shop but has a very comfortable, casual vibe to it. Plenty of parking right out front. Service was quick and friendly. We each ordered a different version of their grilled cheese sandwich with my husband trying the pimento cheese/corn chips as his side and cole slaw for me. Everything was delicious! Would love to go back some time to try breakfast, frozen yogurt or another yummy sandwich!
