It's all about breakfast at this easygoing East End eatery, which has been slinging hash (as well as more upscale seafood frittatas) since 1969. Locals and longtime visitors crowd the cozy, 60-seat spot, which is festooned with pictures and posters of lighthouses from around the world. Most prominently featured is Sanibel's iconic 1884 beacon, which stands less than a half mile away—making it a perfect stroll after a platter of whole-wheat hotcakes smothered in homemade blueberry sauce or eggs Benedict topped with a Key lime hollandaise. At dinner, expect hearty fare like baby back ribs and mahi mahi, or you can bring in what you caught that day, and they'll be happy to prepare it.

Open daily 7 am to 3 pm and 5 to 9 pm, mid-December through April, 7 am to 3 pm only, May through mid-December.
