My wife and I stopped here and split the Club sandwich. We also ordered one side salad and home cut chips. I am so glad we split the food. Very generous portions would have been too much for just one person. The salad was piled...More

Yummy and maybe the yummiest breakfast quesadilla I’ve ever had. My husband thought his eggs Benedict was good, he would have just liked his English muffing toasted more. Our son had the waffle and he said it was a 10.

Good/pleasant service. Prompt food delivery. Clean. Reasonable prices. No wait around noon. If you are looking for a traditional breakfast or lunch this is a very good option.

We biked here for a hot breakfast that Mom didn’t have to cook. Pancakes and French toast were both tasty. Bacon nice and crispy as ordered. We were seated right away. Service was great. Tea and soda glasses never empty.

It has been a few years since we have been to the Sanibel Cafe, and we had forgotten what it was we loved about the Sanibel Cafe. It didn't take long before we were reminded...great service, great food at reasonable prices.

We read the Trip Advisor reviews as we were looking for a place that served breakfast all day and decided to stop at this Cafe. It was an excellent choice as everything we ate was delicious. It is a small cafe that didn't accept reservations...More
