good light food; helpful, friendly service

As I moved here from Paris, when I heard the rave reviews of Burns Court Cafe's quiche, I had to try it. My Quiche Lorraine, one of the three on the menu that day, was delicious and the crust was worthy of all the rave reviews. Maybe because I was so hungry, I would have liked a deeper serving... read more

Amazing quiche!!!!!! Charming location in a sweet little neighborhood in Sarasota. Good espresso drinks too. Salads and sandwiches are also consistently good. Love this place!

My fiancé and I were in search of a little coffee shop during our last day visiting his family in Sarasota. We came across this little cafe and decided to give it a try. My vanilla latte made with almond milk was fresh, foamy, and deliciously roasted. We shared a goat cheese and spinach quiche that was to die for-delicate... More

Whether you're local or visiting you won't be disappointed with this charming cafe located in the historic Burns Court district of downtown Sarasota. Owners are wonderful, food is amazing, nothing crazy fancy, just simple elegant fresh selections. Deserts are truly special! Don't miss out. It's the perfect place to relax for lunch or just enjoy a beverage & maybe a... More

My husband was fishing for the afternoon so I stopped here to kill some time before a movie at Burns Court Cinema. It was a great choice. The place is in an artsy section ("few streets" I guess I should clarify) of downtown Sarasota and the cafe itself is a nice, quaint French Quarter type cafe. I had coffee and... More

Went to the Wine Bar section of the restaurant with boyfriend and another couple for light bites and to listen to music. They have live jazz on Wednesdays. Sat at the bar in the back and had a great time. Ari, the owner, is so pleasant and accommodating. He has a great selection of wines and is very knowledgeable. His... More

We were visiting Sarasota and met a friend here for lunch on her suggestion. It was the ideal place to meet, have a sandwich, nice glass of wine and great conversation. The sandwiches were very tasty and enjoyed with a nice glass of wine. As we hadn't seen one another in several years we had a rather long conversation, but... More

We stopped at the Wine Ba for a drink and some Tapas before going to a movie. What a charming little place! Reminds me of the coffee houses in Harvard Square in the '60's. The little appetizers were nicely presented and of good quality. The atmosphere is warm and the service friendly and casual. Not a fast paced place.. a... More
