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.

This is the best and the busiest place in Sanibel for breakfast, and it's reasonable. You can eat at the bar inside, tables inside or out on the patio.

Big servings of delicious food...what more can you ask for? Freshest blueberries ever in my pancakes and their bacon is the perfect crispness...no fatty floppy strips here! And their menu is extensive! It's not a large cafe but has indoor and outdoor seating. It's entrance has it's own all-way stop sign which is great for the sometimes heavy traffic on... More

Every time my sister visits we HAVE to eat at Overeasy Itwist my arm, right??). We have had so many things - be sure to try the Asparagus and crab omelet!
