I ordered poached eggs, grits, & rye toast. 20 minutes later my plate arrived. The eggs over-cooked & tasted like they were boilded in some funky water...the toast was ice cold....grits were good....all this for $9.00 Odd thing the waiter/owner never asked how we enjoyed our food. This place is way over rated.

Great food, ample selections with lovely presentation. Seating on the small side but staff is accommodating, also limited outside porch seating. Good coffee. Family atmosphere. Good service with friendly staff. Quite busy, popular local spot.

How's this for ironic: the wife had excellent gluten-free waffles, I had far too thick and cakey pancakes. Weird to see the roles reversed when it comes to pancakes. Otherwise, this place was good. Lot of options, nothing too expensive. Some of the items on the menu were nothing too special, but then again, it's a quaint little breakfast cottage.... More

The staff is cheerful and friendly and the food is simply over the top! You won't be disappointed with your meal or your bill! Stop by....you won't be... More

My standard and quest is for biscuits and gravy this place is the best I have found in the area. THe gravy is delicious with a good sausage flavor. Te other folks all thought this was one of the better breakfast places in the area.

Come to the YELLOW cottage on Tamiami Trail and dive into a delicious meal. The menu is varied and the food is abundant. Delicious! It's delicious! We loved it last week, and we will be there often. 🌺
