We went to this simple breakfast/lunch restaurant to check it out. Glad we did. Great breakfast. Inexpensive, but a goodly amount of tasteful food. My wife loved their blueberry muffin, fresh made and warm. Lots of choices on the menu.

We went here for breakfast during our stay in Siesta Key and were very pleased. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. This is a great place for breakfast, quick bites, and cheap eats.

The breakfast menu is amazing. Everything from eggs Benedict to biscuits and gravy. Their biscuits are about 6" across, a meal in itself, and always fresh baked. The staff is always friendly and willing to make adjustments for personal preferences.
