I love this place for breakfast when we are vacationing in Clearwater Beach! The coconut syrup is something I crave in Ohio!

The staff was very friendly, food was well priced and very delicious. Would encourage you to try it if your looking for a good breakfast place...even the locals go here (which speaks volumes).

Stooped here for lunch and everything was great. A lot of people were also eating breakfast which also looked good. This is a small place with excellent food. Highly recommend.

Ate lunch here one day. Looks like they have a great breakfast, also. The cafe is spotless! Husband had a burger with onion rings. I had a tuna salad sandwich with potato salad. Excellent food!

Nothing special about this place but that's part of the appeal. If you need a hearty breakfast without all the fuss this place is great. Quick service and friendly staff.

Second year that we look forward to having breakfast at the Beach Shanty! Great breakfast and friendly staff. Ate the breakfast special and was more than enough. Had a foot long coney and wife had a salad for lunch. Great food. Never disappointed.

Stopped by on a whim and very much enjoyed breakfast. The coconut syrup on the pancakes is the best!
