“Excellent breakfast spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

We've had breakfast several times at the Toasted Mango, and believe it is one of the best breakfast places in Sarasota. Everything we have had has been very good to excellent. Particularly good are the healthy options made with lots of very fresh vegetables. Cheerful staff. Good coffee. Informal and relaxing. Several nicely shaded outside tables are available.

“Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The Toasted Mango was highly recommended to us recently.
We were with another couple. Between the four of us we ordered
breakfast and lunch. We are all very pleased with the food as well as
the service and the personality of the staff. A very up beat group of people.
The food was very fresh and most enjoyable. We encourage all to join in
on a great experience.

“I have to review this place again, it's THAT good!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Went here again this morning with my wife and it was so incredibly good I had to write another review since my first one around a year ago. The staff, atmosphere and of course food, is some of the best in Sarasota! This place, Millies and Yoders have the breakfast food covered here. Sure there are other good places but these three off the best of service, food and atmosphere. Toasted Mango has the best waffles I've ever had, EVER. Actually everything we have had on the menu thus far is A+ fantastic.

Support local business and try this fantastic place out close to the downtown main street area, you won't be disappointed!!!!

“Sarasota diner-good breakfast and lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Toasted Mango is a good place for breakfast or lunch. The line out the door is a clear indication that the locals are smitten. The protein wrap for breakfast is a go to item for the health conscious and most breakfast items are straight forward and very good. The Rueben is terrific and they put out real french fries, instead of the standard frozen fare. The biscuits with mango butter and drizzled with honey are amazing. The staff is friendly, and service is solid.

Toasted Mango does have some shortcomings.

Parking is a challenge, but that is hardly the fault of the restaurant.

The management could work harder to add more tables to the place or do a much better job in turning over the limited seating that they have. There is room for at least two more tables on the outside patio. One very large table inside is rarely used and could be replaced with 4 tables of two, or two 4 tops. The kitchen seems able to keep up with their fast pace, but it seems that they could easily add 10-15 more seats to accomodate the brunch rush. We try to go here more often, but usually just leave due to the long wait. Unless the code won't allow it, they could also add seating to the front porch where we often wait for a seat.

The decor is a little drab and lacks the charm of the food and the staff. Drab plastic tan cloths adorn the tables and the place looks much less charming than it really is.

The pancakes were excellent, it is too bad they cut corners by not serving real maple syrup. I do not want to start my day with the Sysco fake maple flavored syrup.

What Toasted Mango does right compensates for its shortcomings. I suspect a new or a second location that is not in a strip mall would be a welcome addition to Sarasota.
