Getting by on Old Name-No Artist

I'm not sure what the vibe they are going for here. The quality of the coffee and pastries were along the level of a coffee shop at a train station-although the coffee IS fair trade. The couches give the impression that this is a place that you could while away reading or getting work done, but it really lacked the... More

Both barista and friend were lovely and smiling and helpful. I thought I would go in and see amazing looking pastry . Nice muffins and chocolates but no art. There was both indoor and outside seating, wifi available, and I can not resist a friendly smile. I will return.

If you want some fresh tasting coffee and a great atmosphere with some delicious tasting baked items please stop by Pastry Art while in downtown Sarasota. I had a café Mocha - see pictures and a Bran Muffin see pictures. My wife had a coffee and a Danish - see pictures. They are open Monday and Tuesday 7am to 7pm... More

Why go anywhere else, when you can sit outside, watch the world go by, drink fresh cuppa joe and enjoy an amazing almond log? Seriously, there is nothing else like it in the world. Chain coffee shops be damned, Pastry Art is the bomb.

Their espresso muffins are addictive. I stop by this place every time I visit Sarasota. Their baristas make a great cup of coffee!

Great place to hangout and people watch as you sip coffee and have a pastry. They have some nice sandwiches too. Always helpful service and kind to dogs too.

Pleasantly surprised with this establishment! You do order at the counter and they will call you when your order is ready. We were there for brunch with friends and we were all pleased with what we ordered. Most of the baking is done on-site, there were Gluten Free options also. Outdoor seating if you wish. The coffee is very good... More

We stopped here for Sunday breakfast after church. Charming bakery right on historic main street. Great service, vast assortment of coffees to choose from. I had an egg and cheese croissant along with a splendid cup of coffee, I tried a chocolate-raspberry roasted coffee, tasty! Locally owned too! Eat inside or out.
