Caleb? the bartender with bonde dreadlocks was awesome, he delivered our food, made the pancakes, served the best bloody marys and whipped up snow cones for the kids! He does it all...Best breakfast and the AYCE pancakes and sausage for 5.99 was amazingly delicious. I always order a BLT W/Egg and cheese and was one of the best I've had.... More

A must for every beach lover. We always come back and spend most our week here when we are on Anna Maria Island. They have a traditional breakfast menu from Belgium waffles to eggs/omelette bacon and hash browns. Lunch/dinner salads, burgers, tacos, ice cream etc. Everything is cooked to order and generous for the $. I've always been happy with... More

I visited this restaurant recently with friends. Sorry, but I wasn't impressed. They tell me it is very popular but I don't really see the attraction. To be fair - it is an outdoor patio restaurant right on the beach, there is plenty of seating and food is quite good. However, I just felt like it wasn't overly clean. Part... More

Terrible. Chicken salad wrap was all wrap with an ounce of chicken salad burger was ok. Fries were ok. Wine is a rip off. $5.90 for 4oz of Corbet Canyon. Won't go back

Very nice place with tables actually on the sand. There is also plenty of in the shade seats. Go early because traffic going over the bridge gets rough about 11. The pancakes were really good and it was only $1.99 to add eggs to the pancake meal. We loved it and will definitely be back.

We were traveling from NY to Siesta key for Spring Break (with four teens). We made a point to stop here for "non-alcoholic umbrella drinks" they did not disappoint. The kids love the views and the drinks.

The food was good the only thing that was disappointing is that our appetizer came out with our main meal so things got very cool very quickly as we did sit outside.

This cafe is a perfect place for breakfast. Especially if you stay within a mile from it. Take a walk down the beach, have breakfast, and head back down the beach. This way you have your morning exercise, and then by walking back after breakfast, you boost your metabolism for the day. I loved the way they make their eggs... More
