This is a place that you hope never closes its doors. 2 eggs,2 toast and homemade hash browns $4.95. Clean, fast, friendly and a coconut sauce to die for to put on your pancakes! Located right across from the beach at Pier 60. You will love it!

Everything was good but nothing really put it over the top for a 5. Would go again but would definitely search out other gems.

Half of their menu is chicken and they ran out of chicken! We waited almost an hour for our food. Staff was very unfriendly and you could tell they didn't want to be there. Food was alright.

Great staff and food. Nice beach town feel. Egg sandwich, home fries, and pancakes were delicious. Coconut syrup is tasty

The advertisement outside says breakfast is $3.99 and you can truly get a good breakfast for that price. Solid all around food and the guy who seats you is a character.

We were walking down the sidewalk contemplating where to have breakfast when a couple sitting in front of the Beach Shanty cafe said they had a great breakfast. So we went in. They were right! Everything was extra tasty. Friendly atmosphere will visit again next time we are in Clearwater Beach!
