We arrived here for breakfast on a Sunday. They were moderately busy and we were seated immediately. The restaurant provides a calm atmosphere and is very quiet, which was nice. Our server promptly greeted us for drink orders and asked if we had any questions...More

My husband and I stumbled upon this little coffee bar/restaurant and then basically spent everyday of our vacation there. Food is fantastic and the people even better! I highly recommend you visit the Watusi when you are in Hilton Head!

Three very good meals. Homemade Biscuits & Sausage Gravy, Eggs Your Way, & Grilled Chicken Sandwich. We enjoyed the coffee, very good iced tea, efficient service and good atmosphere. We ate inside, but many were enjoying the patio. You'll like it here.

Stopped in for breakfast and the french toast was served a little on the burnt side, staff was friendly enough and the location was clean.
