A decidedly mediocre breakfast. Service was good. Somewhat crowded. Average surroundings. I like the Island Cow for breakfast much better.

We had a small hiccup with the group of 13 but they did a good job at getting us all seated quickly. All the food was amazing and they gave you plenty of it we had leftovers! The shopping around the cafe was good too!...More

Moved to Sanibel last October and found this gem! Great breakfast and lunch spot. A must item to order is the Rusty Pelican Sandwich and the Crunchy French Toast. Always great food and great service!

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.

Yes it is. There is a ramp outside the restaurant to use. It goes to the promenade with the restaurant and stores. They have chairs, which can be moved to accommodate a wheelchair.
