Amazing Breakfast

My new favorite place, can't wait to have lunch here. The food is beautiful, wish I had a pic to share of my stunning omelet. The best, perfectly grilled, biscuit. Wonderful fresh home fries and yummy coffee. I could have hugged the chef. The best breakfast in Venice, hands down!

Hubby and I played golf at Lake Venice, then enjoyed lunch at the Suncoast Cafe, which over looks the airport on the island. It was my first time there and I was blown away! Super fast and friendly service - clean tables - nice counter area that seats about 10. We were there on a Sunday at 12:15 and it... More

When I say it's the best in the world, I must also state that I have visited 125 countries, so I know what I'm talking about!!!!

The Venice municipal airport admin building is probably the least likely place one would expect to find an excellent restaurant. Don't let the location fool you, tho, the Suncoast Cafe offers great food. Breakfast, lunch dinner, no matter, they're all good. The next time you're on the island, take a chance and pass the downtown hot spots by in favor... More

Thank you for the great review! We are certainly a bit off the beaten path, so we work hard to make sure it's worth the trip out of the way. We are not currently offering dinner, but hope to be able to do that in the future. We'll see you soon! More

One of, if not the best, Cuban sandwiches I've ever had. I'm always on the search for great Cuban sandwiches all over Florida. The chef makes his own pork, which along with authentic Cuban bread, makes these one of the best. We'll be going back frequently to try the rest of the menu.

Your kind words will make Chef Tony's day! We are very proud all of his offerings, but the authentic Cuban sandwich gets a gold star and we are so glad to hear that you would agree! We look forward to welcoming you back. Be sure to give the chili or soups a try! More

We had breakfast and the eggs Benedict is delicious. The French toast also excellent and smells wonderful. Watching the planes come and go is a nice, unique touch!

Chef tony is excellent and his staff is amazinglg superb. Went with friends and they said the Reuben and Cuban sandwiches were amazing. I had the red snapper sandwhich which tasted super fresh and was blackened perfectly. For sides, we had cuban rice and plaintains. I was so excited when I saw they had plantains!

We are so pleased to read about how much you and your companion(s) enjoyed your meals! Chef Tony is from St Lucia, so he knows the right way to prepare and serve plantains! I apologize if anyone made you feel unwelcome. There are quite a few tattoos (hidden and otherwise) throughout our staff, so I am guessing it's safe to... More

My wife and I stopped by on a busy Wednesday morning. We were able to snare a couple seats at the bar. Our server quickly arrived with coffee, and menus. A really nice selection on the menu. My wife went for the bacon, eggs, and homefries while I chose the sausage gravy and biscuits. It was great fun, watching Chef... More

We ate there for breakfast/lunch on a Sunday afternoon, we could choose from both the breakfast and lunch menus. My husband had the Cuban sandwich with macaroni salad, I had the Burrito Veracruzano, both choices were excellent and very filling. Best Cuban in the area, my husband says. Coffee is great also, it's apparently a Venetian Coffee Roasters' special blend... More

That's a heart warming review! Thanks! We are so glad that you had such an excellent experience. That is always our goal. You are correct that our coffee is locally roasted by Venetian Coffee and it is, indeed, a blend that they roast special for us. Come back and see us again soon!! More
