My daughter, who is a Hilton Head local, introduced me to Watusi and the great sandwiches which we ordered as take out 3 times in a two week span. The French baguette is among the best I've had and the ingredients are really fresh. The dining room and outdoor courtyard are attractive and we're packed all three times of our... More

We were riding bikes and decided to go here for lunch! We sat outside on the patio cool spot with cool music playing. We asked to see a menu before we were seated. We saw organic non-GMO chicken and spicy kale with quinoa and had to try it out. Great lemonade too! The portions reflect the prices that are very... More

This was our third trip to Watusi. The first time was excellent, had a memorable breakfast sandwich. The second time was not as good but we figured we'd give it one more chance. We will not be going back. The service was horrible. Took 45 minutes from the time we ordered until we got our food, and then when we... More

My boyfriend and I decided to stop here before leaving the island for breakfast and I'm so glad we decided to! Delicious breakfast. I had a omelette which was filling and we also enjoyed eating on the outdoor patio. I would definitely recommend trying this place.

Friendly service, nice patio and lovely gift shop. The rest of the family would have given this spot a 4, but I'm writing the review. I reserve 5s for food that blows my mind. The reason for a 3- my egg dish was light on the add-ins. I didn't try their coffee or espresso, but their options looked amazing!

My husband and I both had a scramble, toast and jelly with 2 cups of house coffee. With a 20% tip the bill finished at $35 for breakfast. The food was good but I felt for this food that's too pricey for this family.

Always busy, but worth the wait especially if you can get a table on the patio. Always great service too! Don't miss the interesting little gift shop inside the restaurant. Love their tasty varieties of Eggs Benedict.

We had a great breakfast here but couldn't help be impressed by the dishes we didn't have as they went to nearby tables. Worth a try if you are in the area.
