Wife and I are here 2 times during our recent stay to Sanibel. Food was excellent both times (and we had different things each time). Wait both times was very quick, and located in a nice shopping center w stores to browse. Definitely a must for breakfast! Highly recommended!

We went there for breakfast after church on Mothers Day It was a 45 min wait, however, there are many cute shops right next door so you can shop while you wait. We sat outside, the service was very good and fast. The food is fantastic!! Worth the wait.

Loved the food. Mostly casual dishes but serves breakfast until closing which was about 2pm. Limited fish entrees but the tilapia sandwich was very good Great kids menu Our waitress was lousy and rude from the beginning.

Good service. Not expense and excellent food. They don't rush you and they give you coffee to go. Usually a 20 minute wait.

Breakfast was your typical fare. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc. I will say I got my eggs the way I like them so that is a plus. Wait staff was friendly enough.

We always like to have breakfast here when we visit.It is always busy but the wait goes fast as you can visit the surrounding shops with your buzzer working. Large menu something for everyone my husband loves the skillets I like the omlettes and kids always try something different. always good service. indoor and outdoor seating.

Wonderful breakfast options, large menu and great outdoor dining available. Waiting can be long, but their system of pagers with blinking lights allows everyone to shop in a delightful small strip type mall, that has several cute shops, benches to sit and a fountain to view while waiting. One of the best breakfasts on the island.

For us, Over Easy is synonymous with a trip to Sanibel Island. Consistently good over the years. Lovely outside seating. Have never found anything to fault them on so will keep returning.
