“Best Breakfast ever!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

During our summer vacation we were recommended this place by our hotel in Clearwater, it was about a 15 min drive from where we stayed at the beach but was definitely worth the drive. There was a line outside, inside was full but we were seated in less the 15 min promised. Even though place was full, it was not loud at all. After we ordered they brought to the table delicious assorted pastries and danishes. all different kind all so good that we asked for 2 more baskets to go. We had the specials of the day, steak and eggs and also lobster Benedict, absolutely delicious!! price was right for the portions and quality of what you get, coffee was good also. Very impressed with the service, servers and bus boys, boy they are fast! There was also a guy making incredible balloon hats for kids and adults.

“Yes to the Grilled Onions, No to the Yellowy Stuff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We know better than to go to this place "in season" mid-morning on a Sunday--it gets jammed! That being said we went in the middle of the week, early--the place was still busy, but we got seated right away. No sausage links, but great sausage patties. If you are an onion lover, say YES to the extra grilled onions on the home fries. And, the homefries are home made--not bag made.

Ordering a full breakfast? What's not to love about the pastry basket that's included (load up on those carbs!).

We did have a problem with toast. Most breakfast places slather on some sort of yellowy stuff. My husband is a purist--he wants real butter on his toast. He requested dry whole wheat. This request threw the kitchen into a dither--toast did not come out until he was almost 3/4 finished with his breakfast and repeated requests to the server. The server admitted that toast requests are difficult and yes, they do slather on yellow stuff.

When his toast did come out, two gold-wrapped pats of butter were included on the plate.

“Breakfast on the Way Out of Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2013

We stopped here for breakfast on our way home from our vacation in Clearwater Beach. It has plenty of seating. Lenny's has the most extensive breakfast menu I have ever seen. The service was great, also.

“Good place for breakfast :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

We were in the area - saw the reviews on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. We both had the redneck Benedict. It was really good. Definitely worth a stop for a good breakfast. The staff was very friendly and right on top of things.
