I strongly suggest this cafe. I have been vacationing in the Bradenton area for 26 years and visit this cafe EVERY time. It is definitely worth the wait to sit outside, but keep in mind that it may be a minute or two before you get seated. There are only 8-10 tables outside.
As tradition, I get the Belgian Waffle here. However, the other breakfast food is very good, as is the quiche. Plus, the clam chowder is very good, but it doesn't always go with the waffle!!
Favorite Dish: Belgian waffle...light and crispy. Never stale.
Right on the beach . . . A refreshing change from all the mostly 5 star restaurants in Longboat Key
Favorite Dish: Fresh Spinach and Feta Cheese Omelette . . . I still dream about it . . . They serve breakfast all day
