You may have to wait but it’s an excellent café. Very large menu for breakfast and lunch. Pancakes excellent, many Benedix are available. The Mimosa‘s are very good. The wait staff is friendly and quick. They really know what they’re doing.

There are occasional menu changes to mix it up and keep it fresh. Many restaurants do this on Sanibel.
