Top Review: “When I tell you this is the absolute best omelette I have ever had in my life… I am not joking whatsoever!! Omg!! It was LOADED with meat and they did not skimp out because of “Covid” like other restaurants say  The grilled biscuit they serve is sooooo life changing. It’s so soft and flaky. The honey they serve with it is a perfect touch. Don’t even get me started with the hash browns with onions!! They were so good.. crispy and so yummy! The staff are extremely nice and attentive. You do not have to worry about any lingering germs in there because it is so clean. The atmosphere is so nice and when you walk in you feel like you’re at home.”Lori N.

Top Review: “This place is absolutely amazing. Down to earth friendly staff. The interior is cute as can be but let’s talk about the food yall! The Belgian waffle was probably the fluffiest, sweetest, waffle myself or our family has ever had. Even the syrup was fantastic on top of the whipped butter! The corned beef hash was something out of this world. Paired with toast, eggs and cholula – you literally can’t go wrong. The biscuits and gravy – first off they’re homemade biscuits. Thick and soft. The sausage gravy, again, homemade – had the most delicious texture and taste. And lastly the egg plate – over easy, hashbrown casserole, biscuit, sausage. The perfect Friday morning breakfast while on vacation. Couldn’t have asked for a better meal or service. Will definitely come back and will for sure recommend to anyone!”Abbigale T.

In a quaint little cottage like building nestled almost hidden off the main highway into the keys one will fine this amazing place.

They have basic, delicious breakfast, and quick service. Would highly recommend! The corned beef hash was definitely from a can, but still really good! And the “fresh squeezed orange juice” was obviously not home squeeze orange juice (fresh squeezed at the manufacturer, maybe). So again, basic but good!”Trang L.

Top Review: “Mangrove mikes is one of the top breakfast spots in all of the keys.  Its an old school place that serves huge tasty portions at a low price.   Most likely you wont be able to finish your meal so arrive hungry.  Their pancakes are gigantic but also very tasty.  My wife orders country fried steak everywhere and she said it was one of the best she has ever had.   The service is great here.  Mostly older ladies that seam like they have been working there for many years.  They have a very keys like theme with lots of mounted fish and pictures of fishing on the walls.  They play diving videos on their TVs which is pretty cool.  Get there early because it gets pretty crowded later in the day.  If youre in the keys you need to go get breakfast here at least once.”David G.

Top Review: “This is an unassuming food truck. I don’t even know if you could call it that. Two ladies were inside and they were great. Friendly and gave us some tips about hitting the road before the traffic builds up. It was one of the best bagel, egg, cheese sandwich i’ve ever had. It could’ve been the additional butter in there. IDK, so good. My boyfriend ordered an avocado toast with egg and it was very good. Our drinks : iced earl grey with oat milk and his was a chai tea. So yummy. They use eco friendly cups. We stayed across the street at the Rock Reef Resort so it was a simple run across a 2 lane highway to get to, but there’s parking. Cute tables to sit under umbrellas and enjoy.”Melinda N.
