You are limited in choice of eatery in the area for breakfast and brunch, but rest assured, this is the perfect spot to relax, grab some good food and be entertained by the waiter. Good food, good cheap coffee (in the morning only), good banter.

We were there in Oct, just start of the season, and things are pretty quiet. We hear good things about this little cafe and wanted to try. The first night we arrive at 6:30 and they are closed! (Website said close at 8:30). The next day we tried at 4pm and the boss lady said the chef is leaving! Sigh...... More

Nice open air cafe in the middle of Nanny Cay. The banana pancakes were delicious and very filling. Will definitely be going back the next time I have to drop the family off for a dive trip.

I like it here, its chilled, the guys here work super hard and are easy going and friendly. Perfect spot to sit about and have a beer and eat after diving, sailing or working.

This little outdoor spot in the Nanny Cay Marina is the perfect spot for a light breakfast, coffee, Bloody Mary and people watching. Between the charterers, seasoned sailors, yacht crew and vendors there are always people to watch as you prepare for your day ahead. The staff has been here forever and only hope that Claire is in a good... More
