My spouse and I stopped for a mid morning breakfast and what a treat. She had the special French toast with blueberries and raspberry sauce. WOW! I had scrambled eggs with cheese and link sausage w/ hash browns. Great!

The breakfasts here are simply outstanding. So many tasty french toast & pancake offerings. There are also some good choices for variations of eggs Benedict. Service is also top-notch.

We had terrific breakfasts here. Eggs were done perfectly. Good variety on the menu plus interesting specials-We had raspberry pancakes with lemon curd which was a great combination. Staff was very friendly. Nice patio with many heaters for chilly weather. Extremely dog friendly

I confess... this was a runner up selection for a Sunday morning. We originally headed to Kenny B's which was closed. After sulking in the parking lot I pulled up Trip Advisor to see where we should go for late breakfast. Came across Palmetto Bay...More

The rave reviews convinced me to get there early and enjoy the casual, fun spot. I’m glad we did. It filled up quickly, and we were glad we were seated inside on such a blustery morning! They still had outdoor seating, with big heaters and...More
