Rosie's is a hidden gem for breakfast and lunch. Avoid the crowds at Over Easy and The Island Cow and come here instead. The breakfasts are delicious!!! Desserts are great too! My kids and I always get the french toast and my husband loves the blueberry pancakes. My father in law loves the sausage and biscuits. The service is slow... More

This is a hidden gem on Palm Ridge Road. While waiting for a store to open, we decided to have breakfast here and was pleasantly surprised how delicious it was. The first day we went, there was a short wait (weekend). My husband and I are light eaters so we split the pancake breakfast and ordered an extra order of... More

It's been going there for years the food has gone downhill every time I've been there only there again. Salad mostly just lettuce. Service isn't even good anymore. Way too many other places nearby that are much better.

We all enjoyed lunch here one day-the Cobb salad was outstanding. Wish they had air conditioning, though.

Actually the ambiance is average but this is my "go to" place for lunch. The staffis friendly, the salads, especially, are satisfying, it is locally popular,the service is good and their ice cream is wonderful! I also like that this place is very quiet and not loaded with visitors to the island. Oh, the icecream........I dream about the key lime... More

We returned again to this restaurant, which is especially good for breakfast and lunch. The Taco salad is delicious with a crispy taco crust to eat. It's not on the Periwinkle strip and therefore not as crowded as the main trouist restaurants but just as good or better.

Great food at affordable prices. Friendly staff. The icecream is to die for! Situated a little off but worth the drive.

One of the best Mexican omelets I've had. My wife chose a basic eggs, bacon, hash browns dish and raved about the bacon. We were already coffeed out so I can't comment about this most critical aspect. We sat outside on a typically pleasant Sanibel morning, always a dining enhancement but perhaps more so in this case, despite the fact... More
