Breakfast is amazing, but then again so is lunch! You might have to wait a little to get in to eat, but you won't regret the wait. Large portions, served quickly. Not overly pricey; worth every calorie! Only open until 3pm, no suppers

We ate regular irregulars, visiting every other year or so with resident friends. We know what to expect and are ALWAYS impressed with staff friendliness, huge variety and speed with which they accommodate our meal. I really enjoy this place. Thank you Over Easy!!

We had breakfast there on Feb. 13 and I enjoyed my egg white omelet, potatoes, sour dough toast and herb tea. We were here last year and enjoyed our visit.

One of the really good breakfast places. I understand that they're open for breakfast and lunch only and well worth visiting. Varied menu, well prepared and the staff is efficient and friendly. I always make this a stop when in Sanibel.

Although we normally eat breakfast in at our timeshare, this is one of our "Must Visit" restaurants! Today again it did not disappoint. The service is friendly & excellent! Menu options are varied. Today we had the pancakes (with bananas and pecans) and French Toast with eggs.

We followed the recommendation of a local and had lunch here. Anytime I see a menu with an abundance of tilapia, I am a little skeptical. We skipped the fish and had a burger and an Asian chicken wrap. The wrap was too cumbersome and soggy to eat as a sandwich, so a knife and fork was employed. The flavors... More

Well worth the wait. Super friendly and attentive staff. Only issue was they ran out of their world famous cinnamon buns by 11on a Sunday which is a tad disappointing.

Wife and I ran from our hotel at island in on the back dirt road, finished at the over easy cafe. There was a small wait but they have an efficient system so we didn't wait for long and there are shops open to kill some time. Breakfast sandwich was good, not spectacular. Blueberry pancakes were outstanding. 5 stars mostly... More
