I went here for breakfast with my Mom who is not a vegetarian and we both had great options. They even have soy milk for non-dairy drinkers (Their iced coffee was great with it). I got the Eggs Benedict with lentil cakes and it was so unique and tasty. A bonus was how friendly, kind and attentive the servers were.... More

This is a fine breakfast/lunch place with an imaginative menu, skill in making omelets and other egg dishes, and friendly and attentive service. My wife and I ate brunch at an outdoor table and when another couple arrived, with their dog, the server responded by bringing glasses of water for the humans and a bowl of water for the dog....

Just had 1:30PM breakfast/brunch. Love this place. Dog friendly, people friendly, fantastic staff and great food as well as a diverse group of folks. The Coffee is out of this world with the most wonderful taste. I've lived here over 30 years and have my new favorite place! Bike in and enjoy.

My husband and I were visiting in the off season and discovered this place for breakfast.. I had amazing Eggs Benedict and my husband had dinner plate size pancakes that were very tasty. Atmosphere is uptown chic with adorable signs to read and keep you entertained about the walls. Service was very attentive. Would return again!!

Full bar. Super fresh food that is really delicious. Great service from the sisters who own and work the place with all their staff. Omelette, French Toast and Crab Benedict were all great!

We have eaten at Watusi twice during our winter respite at Hilton Head. Breakfast was wonderful -- waiter very pleasant and attentive, hostess also attentive to make sure we were happy throughout the meal. Delicious eggs and bacon. Wonderful coffee. Husband had an omelette that he just loved. We went back for lunch today and again had a terrific experience,... More

I had the eggs Benedict on a recent visit to Watusi. This was my first time eating here, and the food was delicious. I ate outside, but there were also plenty of tables inside. A nice gift shop attached. Definitely an excellent local spot!

Wasn't sure of the location because it's on a busy street, but the patio is lovely! Well shielded from the traffic and very relaxing. Breakfast served all day, which is a big favorite with my kids & grandkids!
