We enjoyed the soup and sandwich and wanted to go again, but we heard it is closing. I hope not as we earmarked this as a great lunch place. Home made soup is so special especially in cooler weather.

We recently stopping in at the Gateway Cafe...from the moment we entered it was perfect. Our server "Deb" welcomed us and her pleasant and attentive service was outstanding. Our food was absolutely wonderful. Delicious, reasonably priced, hot when served. We never had to ask for a thing, coffee cups were always filled and received the food exactly how we ordered... More

This is just the kind of place I like for breakfast. Nothing fancy just friendly service, good food, and a fair price....hard to find places like this these days....

The food is prepared expertly with high quality ingredients. Consistently! I love the fluffy egg white omelets and Rachel's crispy bacon. Service is super fruendly and always accommodating. Sandwiches, soups never disappoint.

Breakfast here is as good as it gets, bar none. There is no better breakfast in Sarasota! Each dish looks like a picture.

Just as previous reviewers said, this place is a real find! Ten tables and four counter seats in a very clean and interestingly decorated room. My wife had a BLT, but it was much better than usual fare. I had the roast beef melt with cheese and onions on sourdough and it was fabulous! The waitress made us feel like... More

Tucked in a strip plaza maybe a mile from 41 you could miss it. But don't. Breakfast and lunch as good as it gets. Only better. When was the last time you had egg salad made to order. Need I say more. Okay a bit. Nice people. Great service. Owner ever present. Cook fantastic. Prices low enough to make you... More

this cafe has charm, and location and really outstanding food. The waitress Deb was very friendly and helpful. Never once had to ask for a refill on our drinks, and she offered some great suggestions for our order. The food portions were very good as was the quality of the product. My only complaint would be parking. It is very... More
