Popped in here after seeing a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast, staff were friendly and helpful in suggesting what to have. It's a good spot to have a wander around some local shops either before or after eating.

Who has the best breakfast is a hotly debated topic. For me, it's the OEC hands down. Start with the ridiculously huge and delicious cinnamon roll, then order some breakfast. You can't go wrong, but I am partial to the southern eggs benny. Perfectly poached eggs and sausage gravy.

We went to this little place expecting it to be a run-of-the-mill breakfast place without a lot of variety. I can still taste the Rueben Benedict. It was excellent! The breakfast potatoes were very good, as well. Hubby loved his breakfast, too. It was extraordinary. The wait was long, but so worth it. There was inside and outside seating, and... More

The Over Easy Cafe was very busy but worth the wait. Excellent service and food. We loved it! It is in the perfect location close to everything. Go early to avoid a possible wait.

Very good service, cute atmosphere, delicious breakfast served up hot and fast! The place was pretty busy on a Tuesday early in the am so I am guessing this is a well known breakfast place. Definitely worth a trip!

So many choices...will definitely be back for some other choices. Was pretty busy the Sunday after Thanksgiving but the wait was tolerable and worth it. Loved the Bennys and omelets.

This is one of two best breakfast places on Sanibel to eat. We can't wait to dine here each time we come to Sanibel.

Great spot for a quick traditional breakfast. We go here quite a bit while on the island, easy to bike to.
