Waitress wasn't very knowledgeable about possibilities of adding to or taking from the items we were choosing from the menu. We made our selections, and after what seemed to be a long time, our food arrived.
Seems to be the type of place that only the “locals” get any leeway” in their ordering. On chilly day we go and have breakfast on Daniel during our 5 weeks.
Wife went with simple tomatoes Parmesan along with eggs, hash browns and bacon. I went with special of eggs, pancakes at bacon.
All was fine and food was very good especially the service. Claim your listing for free to respond to reviews, update your profile and much more.

Kathy and I visited SanibelIsland recently, our first time in many years, and the “Old Florida” charm that Daniel is famous for is still there. SanibelIsland ’s beachfront is clean and uncrowded, with now high rises allowed.
There are no mega-RV dealers like Camping World, no Bass Pro Shop, and no outlet malls. You won’t even find a Publix or Winn-Dixie supermarket, Florida’s popular home-grown grocery chains.
Beautiful SanibelIsland is world-famous for its abundance of seashells and migratory birds. There’s also a nice beach near the lighthouse, with plenty of parking, a fishing pier and facilities.
When exploring SanibelIsland by bike (or by car, if you must), here are some other highlights to watch for along the way between the lighthouse and Bowman’s Beach: Thanks to strict development codes, Periwinkle Way isn’t your typical center of commerce.
There are no bawdy large signs, no tacky strip shopping centers, and only a couple of fast-food restaurants (a Do and a Subway). Instead, the architecture of the shops and restaurants has a pleasant island look, with lots of outdoor café seating.
Even if it is the main drag, Periwinkle Way is still green and natural, with large oak trees and native palms. Dining is one of the favorite off-beach activities at Daniel, and the local establishments won’t disappoint you.
To check out the choices and pick your favorites before arrival, visit this list on TripAdvisor. Daniel ’s restaurants are typically locally owned and many offers outdoor café seating.
The bike path takes you right through the park, and it’s a shady and scenic ride you won’t forget. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge is home to more than 270 types of birds, 35 species of mammals, and 60 different reptiles and amphibians.
Make it a priority to visit this beautiful spot during your time on SanibelIsland. The bike/walk trails also take you to SanibelIsland ’s beautiful white-sand beaches, brimming with colorful shells waiting to be picked.
Winter is the “high season,” so expect higher prices and lines at some of the more popular restaurants. Nearby Attractions You may never want to leave the island while visiting Daniel, but if you do, there’s a world of other opportunities just across the causeway on the mainland.
SanibelIsland is part of Southwest Florida, and immediately off the coast from the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area. There’s much to see and do in the Greater Fort Myers area, but a must-see attraction is the winter estates of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford.
You will learn a lot about the genius of these two industrial pioneers, whose inventions have changed the lives of everyone. Even popular East Coast destinations like Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale are less than three hours away.
You can have breakfast on Daniel and drive to Miami’s famed South Beach for lunch, should you wish to do so. Closer to home, don’t forget the huge Everglades National Park, which lies between Fort Myers and the East Coast.

Enjoy a piece of Captive Island ’s unique history while sipping your favorite beer or wine and watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico! The Mucky Duck (a common name for a British pub) started off as a tea house known as the Gulf View Inn.
One of its most notable features is its Wall of Faces, depicting individuals who have been influential throughout Daniel ’s history. In addition to the good vibes, CIP’s is also known for its tasty menu, as well is its great happy hour specials.
Be sure to try one of our favorites, the ‘CIP’mini, made with Malibu Coconut Rum, Smirnoff Vodka, pineapple and grenadine. Drink, dine, and dance at the beautiful Traditions on the Beach all while watching the gorgeous Gulf sunset.
