We ate breakfast at the Beach Shanty Cafe this morning. I'm glad I read the reviews first so that I knew to order the eggs benedict. It was not on the menu, but it was so good! Limited seating, so be patient.

Very quaint little cafe close to all the hotels. The service was fast and food was delicious. The portions are large as well. Great for families.

We went here for Breakfast and really enjoyed it. The food get like home cooking not your typical tourist trap. The prices were better than other places went. Get their early, because they fill up fast or be prepared to wait. Would go back again...More

What a wonderful find for breakfast (went back twice). Locals frequent the establishment, portions are big, and things are fresh. They cook in front of you and take good care of you. Tight quarters but worth the visit.

Cozy, quaint beach shack vibe with great breakfast! We walked in on a whim and decided to stay and were not disappointed. Staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. I would absolutely go back the next time i'm in Clearwater.
