“A BRAND NEW DAY FOR THE VILLAGE CAFE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

I live near the Cafe and must admit when it first opened I was underwhelmed. Recent changes in staff and menu have taken it to the TOP of my list!!! Theresa, April, Joe and Ryan are the cheerful, efficient cooks and servers and they do it up right. I LOVE the baked goods, the sandwiches, Ryan's special fried egg sandwich Fridays and April's Saturday and Sunday french toast breakfast. The cases are filled with yummy fresh fruit drinks and the fresh brewed iced tea is superb. I think the tea is always a sign of how the rest of the restaurant is going to be. There is a big deck out front for al fresco cappucino sipping and a large friendly air conditioned indoor area usually well populated with locals and visitors - everyone chatting and dining happily in the light comfortable rooms. The sunporch on the front is just a delight. In fact, everything is a delight. I eat there every day now....it is seriously irrestible!! Just a great cafe located right in the heart of Pine Avenue in Anna Maria. Hope to see you there!! PS And did I mention they have free Wi-Fi??? I could write all day about it - just go see for yourself.

“Great Sandwiches!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We visited the Village Cafe for lunch and breakfast while we were on the island. Breakfast was great and so was lunch. We had the Rosedale sandwich for lunch and the Sun Rise Panini for breakfast and both were amazing. Service was attentive and friendly. We will be going back every time we visit AMI.

“Blueberry Scones”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We had a huge bagel and really good blueberry scone. The coffee was excellent as well as the tea. The decor was tropical but also had many interesting displays about the early years on the island.

“Pine ave perfect.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

The Village Cafe at Rosedale, on Pine Ave. is a new restaurant and part of the British take over of the Island of Anna Maria. This is a fairly new facility, well done and has interesting photos of Brits and other distributed around with in the rooms. The staff are great and the food is as well. The individuals who own this also have taken over a large part of this whole street, referred to earlier. They are "green" in their motivation and have done a super job upgrading the street and this particular facility. Dine indoors or out. Clean organized and part of the Island future.

“Loved this little place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Enjoyed a wonderful lunch and some great tea at this place on our trip last year. Was even pet friendly, they provided treat and water bowls for my pups. I loved the atomsphere indoors as well, very modern but laid back. Would def visit again when I'm down that way.
