Seating was immediate. Service was prompt, professional, and right-on-time. We ordered 2 different breakfasts and both were very good.

“Great breakfast place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

This is a terrific place for breakfast located right on Main St in the center of downtown Sarasota. It's part of a chain with locations in several states. The Siesta Cocktail is so delicious and refreshing- yogurt with fruit and granola. The omelettes are fresh and delicious.

“Delicious, fresh and healthy breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Had a wonderful and delicious breakfast here this morning. The food was very fresh and tasty. The service was professional and cordial. The hostess was very warm and pitched in when wait staff was busy. There were many food choices including lots of healthy options such as fruit, granola, yogurt & hot/cold cereals. The lunch menu also looked delish. I will come back to this restaurant on my next visit to Sarasota. We stayed on Lido Key & it was a short drive.
