We are locals and love Minnie's café for breakfast. Always large portions and food is always tasty and served hot. They have recently painted and added an even more nautical flair. Wait staff in sailor outfits - cute and all the ladies are delightful!!

Loved this place! Had to wait a few minutes but worth it. Friendly service, more food then we could eat! I had banana bread French toast. Minnie's serves more than breakfast but was the best breakfast on the island!

We have been here several times for breakfast and certainly have never left hungry. Very generous portions! I love their homemade biscuits and gravy- those biscuits are divine! Our last trip was very underwhelming due to very slow service, but normally they do a good job of getting you in and out.

Lol. Visited this place a second time on our third trip to Anna Maria Island. Beware, if you are a visitor. Make sure you keep checking the sign in sheet. We waited and waited wondering why everyone was being seated prior to us. Got up ( you wait outside ) to check. Two other groups were sat before us. They... More

Awesome home cooked breakfast with yummy blueberry pancakes and super crispy bacon. Cafe has a whimsy nautical theme. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Just be advised that its cash only, no credit cards accepted.

breakfast on the island. Minnie's is a delight from the nautical-themed decorations, to the waitresses' sailor caps; the food is fresh and very good. Next time, I'll indulge in the bsicuits.

The food was good, but there is always a wait. Don't sit at an empty table that isn't cleared. They don't serve your food quickly either. Good coffee.

Unfortunately, we seat only fifty people and do our best to get you seated and fed as quickly as possible. There is a wait for tables during the high season, this is not a problem the rest of the year. Because all our dishes are cooked to order this does take a few more minutes. If the restaurant is full... More

We were here for 7 days and tried many breakfast places but this was hands down the best of all of them! Homemade biscuits are out of this world!

Went based on TA reviews. Best breakfast of the trip. Small wait but worth it. Great local, small, quaint atmosphere. Great service. Great breakfast. Nice selection with some basic and unique choices.
