There is no shortage of places to eat on Siesta Key but you won't go wrong selecting the Sun Garden Cafe. We met friends for lunch but their breakfast items are also available. The food was good and the service was fine. It was a cool day so seating was readily available but there are times when there is a... More

Stopped by for lunch, as we were looking for a place that offered casual, healthy dining. If you're similarly inclined, this is definitedly a place worth checking out. Located in the heart of the downtown area, it is easily accessed and located right next to the Eat Here restaurant (which I also highly recommend). We ate outside on their lovely... More

We stumbled upon this cute little restaurant today and we're very happy with our selection. The hostess was most pleasant and our server was friendly and efficient. The outside seating area was lovely and the inside looked nice. The restaurant is off the main drag, so may be hard to find but is well worth the search. We had breakfast,... More

Brunch was delicious; so good that we made it a priority to go back again. Just as good each time. Both indoor and outdoor seating options were enjoyable. Friendly, prompt service. Parking can be a challenge during peak tourist season - look for nearby parking area reserved for the Avenida Madera businesses.

Decided to try this quaint looking restaurant for breakfast. Got a great outside table, but then waited over 10 minutes for a server to come by. She was rude, short and rolled her eyes at us when we requested water. The server also complained the entire time about how tired she was of taking care of everyone. This made our... More

We wandered by this restaurant by accident one day" it is, as the name suggests, set in a garden atmosphere protected from both sun and wind. The food was delicious and the service great. We will return on our next visit.

I never knew this wonderful café was tucked back around the corner on Avenida Madera off Ocean Blvd. Till an old dear friend and her husband was vacationing down here and invited me to breakfast. What a great place! Right from the get-go the staff was friendly and fun. The country omelet was fabulous and the portions where very large.... More

While on vacation, we asked a local who recommended Sun Garden for breakfast. The country omelette was excellent so we came in a second time later on. Also had sweet potato pancakes, a BLT, and a salad. It was all very good. The patio is nicely shaded by beautiful trees. Service was good.

Off the beaten path (just a bit) from the row of restaurants on the main drag of Siesta Key Village is the Sun Garden Cafe. Serving breakfast and lunch in a pleasantly shaded courtyard (or indoor dining if you desire), you'll enjoy the friendly greeting, seating and eating in this casual and inexpensive venue, with fresh simple fare coupled with...
