Great Lunch venue in Siesta Key

Nice welcome from staff (nice to be greeted with happy smiling faces) and elected to sit inside and family seated in cool booth. Extensive menu and good value for money. Had a lunch combo which was 1/2 a large toasted "sandwich of the day" Turkey, Pesto and Feta Cheese with Chicken & Avocado Salad... read more

The menu is great...my pet peeve is when you read a menu item and think...YUM, but when your food arrives you think...wait...this couldn't possibly be what I ordered! This is NOT the case here...this exceeded my expectations!! The patio is great with lots of shade. Even my heat sensitive mother could stand sitting outside on a hot summer day.

Sun Garden is definitely a favorite around the island and one thing in particular makes sense why: the bacon. If I were basing the review just on my meal alone, I probably would've given it a 3/5 just because I wasn't too impressed, but I also got more of a traditional meal with eggs, grits, and bacon. The grits really... More

My family really enjoyed a late brunch at this restaurant last week. I ordered the Elvis Presley breakfast and it is a once in a lifetime treat

I live on Siesta Key and like to support our restaurants. I have been MORE than patient, giving every benefit of the doubt ~ each time hoping the past visits were just 'flukes.' I WANT to see businesses thrive on the Key. I now accept that I have been the one at fault for returning each time, expecting something different.... More

Dear TripAdvisor community, I have never responded to a review before as I think most people are reasonable, mature and entitled to their views (constructive or otherwise), however this juvenile rant proves that just because you breathe doesn't mean you should have the right to speak nor should you assume anyone would care what you have to say. This is... More

Our favorite place we ate breakfast in Siesta . I had the flower child . Wasn't sure about the combination at first of the ingredients but it was a wow. Patio is very cute and service was good .

We had a nice lunch consisting of fish and fries, salmon and a beef sandwich. The food was prepared well, the staff we're friendly and the price was good, we are going to try the breakfast as we have been told it's really good( built on Bacon).

It's a standard breakfast/brunch spot. Though the outdoor area is really pretty and relaxing! I wouldn't mind sitting out there with just a coffee. Service is really good and the food comes out fast. The food itself is pretty average, and they don't allow you to modify items on the menu (though one of our waitresses kindly did anyways on... More

A great place for a relaxed breakfast on the patio...I would try the biscuit and gravy for comfort food and there are various breakfast sandwiches. The staff are very friendly helpful and accomodating

Parking was a pain and we had to park a block away. Once there, all employees were friendly and we were seated immediately. The menu offers some unique breakfast features such as sweet potato pancakes (which were excellent). I had an omelet with bacon, ham, mushroom and cheese. We also ordered the peppered bacon which was above average. There ice... More
