We were here for a late breakfast at around 10:00AM. The only selections for breakfast are scrambled eggs and quiche. When we asked if anything came with the quiche, we were told "salad"!! Not my idea of breakfast. We all ordered quiche and it took sometime before our order was brought out. While the quiche tasted good, the crust was... More

Burns Court Cafe is a great spot and my husband and I have eaten lunch there many times when we are in Sarasota. There's a shop nearby that we love - Sigrid Olsen's Boutique - and the restaurant is a great place to grab a bite to eat. On our most recent visit my husband had a turkey sandwich on... More

Came here at coffee time and thought we would have a snack as everything looked so yummy. I had the toasted salami cheese and ham sandwich ...delicious . One of our party had the toasted Brie Turkey and cranberry caprese. Everything was hot tasty and really good.

We wandered in to Burns Court Cafe today. Comfortable atmosphere, nice menu and very nice owners. We had two different kinds of quiche - Lorraine and goat cheese/roasted pepper. Both were superior. Cappuccino was great, as was the service. We will be back. Croissants and desserts are next on the list to try. I think we just discovered a gem!

The owner is, I believe, French, if I determined the accent correctly, and already that fact adds flavor to a Sarasota eatery situated just a few... More

My wife and I ate at Burn's Court Cafe recently. We stopped for a lunch and ordered sandwiches which came with a salad. The bread was fresh and tasty and the whole lunch was enjoyable. We also had the frozen fruit drinks which hit the spot. We sat outside with our dog and the owners checked on us numerous times... More
