Went in for stuffed French toast and shrimp and grits. As usual, all food was great as was the service. I cannot get enough French toast from this place!

Thanks very much for taking time to put this note on Trip Advisor. We always appreciate when our servers are complimented. Our staff works hard moving back and forth from three dining areas and to notice those efforts is most gratifying. Of course, our French Toast is our Signature breakfast dish and has been pleasing customers for many years. Thank... More

5 of us has lunch at Sing's, a local bakery & sandwich shop. The food and service were excellent. Signe's can be accessed via a narrow bridge from a bike trail behind the restaurant. This avoids the busy Arrow Road. They have an extensive display of pastries, too.

Thank Fred R

Also quite pleased we could be of service to you and your family. Hope your Hilton Head vacation has been splendid. Look forward to having you again. Blessings on your trip home. More

This place was recommended by friends and it didn't disappoint. We went twice and had lattes, fruit and scones or muffins each time. Both the service and food were good and we enjoyed the quiet outdoor seating.

A friend who is a regular Hilton Head visitor recommended Signe's for breakfast and did not steer us wrong. My husband tried the Rachel Ray favorite French toast and I got a crab quiche. Both were excellent. We also purchased some baked goods to bring home as gifts. Really tasty stuff. Worth the trip.

Signe's Heaven Bound Bakery & Café has been a Hilton Head Island tradition since 1972. Signe Gardo still coordinates the operation, which has been featured in numerous national publications as well as the Food Network for its eclectic breakfast and luncheon menu. All-day breakfast includes a remarkably delicius baked French Toast (blueberry, blackberry and old fashioned) as well as fluffy frittatas, hearty shrimp & grits and an assortment of fresh pastries. An array of Signe's specialty salads appeal to local vegetarians as well as her quiches and tarts. Sandwiches run the gamut from turkey & cranberry to Hot Reubens. Then, of course, there are desserts - lots of them, including our renowned double-chocolate "Mud-dauber" cupcake to sweet-potato/pecan pies, fresh key lime pie and a choice of cakes by the slice, made daily.
