“friendly, decent food, fun and reliable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

they work hard to keep up with the large crowds (more tables in the back) and generally succeed - food is reliably good (if not really outstanding) but it is just such a nice, cosy spot to have breakfast, lunch or dinner

“"Straight Friendly" Dining Experience in Wilton Manors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2014

What a fun place to eat! They serve a great breakfast complete with tater tots, a great variety of eggs benedict, and my favorite - the MESS (scrambled eggs, three different meats, onion, pepper)! The servers are extremely outgoing and friendly. Ask for Rudy! He is absolutely an off the chart server - always a smile, attentive, and concerned about your dining experience. This is definitely a "family" oriented restaurant but as the sign says, "We are straight friendly!" Love it! If you are visiting Wilton Manors, this is a "must" place to go for either breakfast or lunch. Enjoy!

“Yet another good meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

Each and everytime we have been here the food has been great. Most times have been for breakfast. Food is fresh, fast and most important HOT! Rudy and Phil could not be better in making sure you are taken care of. I can't speak enough about how this makes one feel. Is it a 5 star location? No. But it is clean, fast and as I mentioned good. I still have the meat lovers breakfast which has always been a joy to eat. Nice expierence for sure. Go and see for yourself!! Good food for a very good price!

“Friendly Service in an Outdoor Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

My favorite place to grab breakfast in Wilton Manors, hands down. I love sitting outdoors beneath the canopy where the friendly waiters work to please. And, while waiting for the food, it's a great place for people watching during the busier hours (and you'll enjoy seeing the dogs that come in with their owners as well). I enjoy it whether alone or with a friend, perhaps stopping in after a night of bar-hopping for a late night (or early morning) snack. The prices are very reasonable and they have many choices on the menu. In the evening, for dinner, I almost always go for the Chef Salad, best priced of its kind on the Drive and full of good stuff. Courtyard Café is a great place for talking with friends as well as reading one of the local papers.
