Thank you for your stopping by taking time to write a note on Trip Advisor. Some bakery items I might suggest for your next trip to Hilton Head Island would be our muffins and brownies. If you are a fan of chocolate our "Mud-Daubers" cup cakes are one of our most popular items as well as our bread pudding. All... More

Stopped here on the recommendation of a friend. The place is a little hard to find and is certainly not fancy at all. Both of our breakfasts were very good and the service was also good. It is mid range in price. We did purchase some cookies from the bakery to eat on the road (we were leaving Hilton Head... More

A friend who is a regular Hilton Head visitor recommended Signe's for breakfast and did not steer us wrong. My husband tried the Rachel Ray favorite French toast and I got a crab quiche. Both were excellent. We also purchased some baked goods to bring home as gifts. Really tasty stuff. Worth the trip.

This gem of a cafe is absolutely wonderful! The breakfast menu is fairly extensive, and the baked goods are beyond delicious. I had a very tasty ham and cheese fritata (huge!) and my husband had poached eggs on homemade corned beef hash. Then we took baked goods for dessert later in the day. Yum!

We never visit Hilton Head without grabbing a bag or box of something yummy from Signe's Bakery. We have never eaten lunch there, but the cakes and pies and cookies are to die for! They are the best bakery we have tried on the Island. Love, love, love them!!!

We often stop at Signe's when staying on the island. This time we decided to stop by for some breakfast pastry for the next day. We selected 4 items...one to sample on the porch and the other for later. The first two were rather dry, so we thought warming up and having coffee for breakfast would improve them. However, neither... More

Signes is the home of Rachel Ray's favorite breakfast, the blueberry French toast, and I can see why. This unassuming place boasts breakfast all day, sandwiches, salads and baked goods. The baked French toast is delicious, rich, and hardly in need of syrup. We also tried the frittata of the day (yum) and key lime bread pudding. Nice service too.... More

Description
Signe's Heaven Bound Bakery & Café has been a Hilton Head Island tradition since 1972. Signe Gardo still coordinates the operation, which has been featured in numerous national publications as well as the Food Network for its eclectic breakfast and luncheon menu. All-day breakfast includes a remarkably delicius baked French Toast (blueberry, blackberry and old fashioned) as well as fluffy frittatas, hearty shrimp & grits and an assortment of fresh pastries. An array of Signe's specialty salads appeal to local vegetarians as well as her quiches and tarts. Sandwiches run the gamut from turkey & cranberry to Hot Reubens. Then, of course, there are desserts - lots of them, including our renowned double-chocolate "Mud-dauber" cupcake to sweet-potato/pecan pies, fresh key lime pie and a choice of cakes by the slice, made daily.
