The Over Easy Cafe cannot be beat for a great breakfast! Service is terrific and food is served hot and plentiful. Mimosas are a nice touch. Be prepared to wait unless you get there before 9:00AM. Best breakfast on the island!

A nice cafe for breakfast. A good selection of all the basic morning meals and more. Try the crab meat/asparagus omelet. Very tasty and large portions for all. A great way to start your day on the island.
