“DELIGHTFUL DELICIOUS DELOVELY!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Wonderful food, atmosphere & service. We had dinner there Saturday night of Memorial Day Weekend. Duck Liver Pate to start, Veal Mileanase & The Duck - more then we could finish. We had no room left to even look at the dessert menu.

Table was perfect - from start to finish - friendly -caring - perfect service!

“Sarasota Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Walking distance to the shops of Old Sarasota, the Bijou Cafe is a great place for lunch. Great atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff. I have Celiac Disease and our server was very familiar with my needs and checked with the kitchen staff if I had questions. Four of us had great meals and would not hesitate to return.
