Best Cuban Sandwich we've ever had! Servers were friendly and fast! We flew into Venice Airport specifically to eat at Suncoast Cafe!

We were so glad to have you! We love being at a small airport like this. It makes the world so much smaller. And we know that you could have flown to many other airports, so please know that we are honored that you chose to park your plane here at the Venice airport to eat with us! We look... More

Had breakfast with my husband on Sunday morning. Small place, casual dining. I had French toast and a side of home fries , it came with fresh fruit too. My husband had a meat lovers omelette. Presentation was fantastic. Food was delicious! You can also catch planes taking off and landing. Definitely returning soon!

Even though it had been a few months since I ate here last, Chef Tony gave me the biggest smile when I entered, and it's so nice to feel welcomed in such a warm manner. The place is so uniquely located right at Venice airport, so there's always some activity going on.... very interesting. Of course I ordered that CUBAN... More

Quality of the food was average. For 10 dollars my wife received 2 grilled eggs, toast, and a small cup of mixed fruit. Coffee was an additional $2.25. Although I enjoyed visiting this place with its flight theme, we will not return.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We work hard to control as many costs as possible (while still using top quality ingredients), so that we can pass that savings on to our guests. From the sounds of your bill, there may have been a mistake made. Two eggs, toast and a side of fruit should not have been $10... More

The food is great, I had a meat omelet, it was very good and my son had the French toast and they were perfect. But here is why I say but.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm glad to hear that you and your son enjoyed your food. While health code does not require food handlers to wear gloves at all times, hand washing and cleanliness is definitely a necessity, of course. Typically our staff is quite adept with the standards of cleanliness, so I am shocked and saddened... More

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!
