Great French food! Charming little café in a fun area downtown. Really great coffee, bread and delightful service.

I have been to Burns Court several times in the past year and have never been disappointed. In fact, the more I go, the more I discover that I love about it! The food in the Cafe side is incredible! My mouth starts watering when I even think of their spinach quiche - with red peppers and goat cheese! Magic... More

I love good quiche and specialty sandwiches. This place has those. The coffee is great also. Great place to stop into without having to deal with big crowds. I love to sit outside under the trees with my favorite furry friend. Service is good, menu is great, quality of the food fantastic. Sometimes I wish the serving was a little... More

Burns Court Cafe is in a neat neighborhood with many locals stopping by (a wonderful change from the snowbird crowd). And, with tables inside and out and two servers working hard to keep up, there is a nice vibe. While I saw many interesting looking sandwiches coming out, the stand out was the croissant - which was simply outstanding. I... More

I have been to Burns Court Cafe many times and have always enjoyed it. It can get a little crowded during season but I am happy to see that they have expanded the restaurant. I like to get the sandwiches and a coffee which are always great and sometimes a yummy pastry which is not great (for my waistline). The... More

We have been coming to BCC since it opened and come here as often as we can :-) We tried the new restaurant just recently and were delighted that it's as good as ever... the Mahi dish was absolutely delicious and the wine selections are fabulous for a small restaurant.... we find the prices to be very fair too....

This morning we arrived at 10:15 and there was 1 person attending the cashier register and all the table inside 10-12 tables...it was raining outside. Some of the tables were clear of dirty cups and dishes, so we sat down after ordering at the counter. We noticed that all the sandwiches and quiches are PRE MADE. Our egg breakfast came... More

This place gets forgotten a lot of times, but has delicious food and is just 2 blocks from Downtown Sarasota. We split the Veggie Sandwich which came with ridiculously fresh tomatoes, avocados, artichokes, and goat cheese. A side salad accompanied the sandwich and it was plenty for us to split. If you want to get away form Main St and... More

My wife and I went there for the first time to have some dessert last Friday night. Waitress gave menus, never came back. She was too busy chatting with another employee (and standing directly behind my wife) to even make eye contact, let alone come back to take our order. UNACCEPTABLE! WE WON'T BE GOING BACK. YOU BLEW IT!
