Usually you will have to wait to be seated. The food is worth it and always made fresh. We go for breakfast most of the time. Also a must is the wheat berry bread. It is one of my main reasons to go. Also the shops around the restaurant have some great little gifts for those back home.

We ate breakfast here on our last morning on Sanibel. It turned out to be the best breakfast of our visit. It took a while to be seated, but there are a number of fun shops nearby in which to kill time. We wound up at the counter with an entertaining view of the kitchen. From the extensive menu, I...

Had to wait 50 minutes (Sunday at 10) but well worth it. Service was good and food came quickly. Everything done just right and at a reasonable price.

This place is always busy with a wait of 30-40 minutes. It's on the main road on the island of Sanibel. I'm sorry that I have to say I enjoy other places for breakfast. It's a cute place with a couple trinket shops near by to visit as you wait.

Breakfast is amazing, but then again so is lunch! You might have to wait a little to get in to eat, but you won't regret the wait. Large portions, served quickly. Not overly pricey; worth every calorie! Only open until 3pm, no suppers

We ate regular irregulars, visiting every other year or so with resident friends. We know what to expect and are ALWAYS impressed with staff friendliness, huge variety and speed with which they accommodate our meal. I really enjoy this place. Thank you Over Easy!!

We had breakfast there on Feb. 13 and I enjoyed my egg white omelet, potatoes, sour dough toast and herb tea. We were here last year and enjoyed our visit.
