Fresh and delicious

This small bakery/cafe has the best scones ever. The lemon poppy seed are my favorite. Next would be the raspberry which are loaded with juicy fresh raspberries. The scones are most and loaded with flavor, the lemon have a sweet glaze over the top which is so good.We love to sit out front order tea... read more

Walk in and just try to choose from all the good things in the pastry case. Lemon squares, 3 kinds of macaroons, and my sister's favorite the scones, best she has ever had. I have loved anything I have ever tried here.

Had a wonderful weekend family breakfast. Service was excellent. Food was excellent and delivered promptly. My son really liked the chocolate chip pancakes. I really enjoyed the Texas Cinnamon French toast and the home fries are the best I think I ever had, they had a unique flavor or seasoning on them which I can't pinpoint at the moment. Probably...

We happened to stop by this place on the main street in Venice, while cruising downtown looking at the sights. Indoor and outdoor seating, friendly wait staff, usual breakfast menu with some daily specials. Ambience is a bit off being connected to the bakery portion of the restaurant, but all in all, the omelettes were tasty and the pancakes were... More

Fluffy, mouth watering, flavorful orange cranberry scone. Really generous in size, too. You will not be disappointed. Stroll down the shops of Venice, FL and have a treat!
