Usually you will have to wait to be seated. The food is worth it and always made fresh. We go for breakfast most of the time. Also a must is the wheat berry bread. It is one of my main reasons to go. Also the shops around the restaurant have some great little gifts for those back home.

We ate breakfast here on our last morning on Sanibel. It turned out to be the best breakfast of our visit. It took a while to be seated, but there are a number of fun shops nearby in which to kill time. We wound up at the counter with an entertaining view of the kitchen. From the extensive menu, I...

This is a small restaurant, so there is usually a line. They are located in a cute shopping plaza, so you can shop while you wait. The decor is adorable, plus a few TV's and music. The staff are on their game and the service is excellent. I had the hash omelet with fruit and toast. It was hearty and... More

Had to wait 50 minutes (Sunday at 10) but well worth it. Service was good and food came quickly. Everything done just right and at a reasonable price.

This place is always busy with a wait of 30-40 minutes. It's on the main road on the island of Sanibel. I'm sorry that I have to say I enjoy other places for breakfast. It's a cute place with a couple trinket shops near by to visit as you wait.
