This is always our first and favorite breakfast stop when visiting Sanibel. It's so pleasant to have breakfast out on the patio. Food is always good, and the orange juice is the best ever! Servers are always friendly and we've always enjoyed our breakfasts here.

We thought the coffee was bitter. But loved the cups so bought a couple, service was good but potatoes with the breakfast were only lukewarm at best. Bacon was good. Love the atmosphere.

We have gone twice to this place. Some of the seating is outside, the menu is large and they do it well. Very popular but if you have a wait there are 3 gift shops to browse away the time.

The Over Easy Cafe is casual, in between the Island Cow and the Blue Giraffe in terms of ambiance. We ate lunch there today. The fried shrimp was very good; the French fries were excellent. The BBQ sliders were edible. The onion rings are frozen,...More
