“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Down home country style breakfast. Went with friends and family and the food was very good. The service was adequate (but hey it's a breakfast joint). Pancakes were great - would definitely return.

“great breakfast and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We found this place a few years ago and whenever we go back to Florida, which is as often as we can we know we will get to sarasota at least once during the holiday. You may have to wait a few minutes, that's because it's so good. Great choice of breakfast and the staff are real friendly, all in all it's worth it.

“Great Breakfast”

HUGE omelets that are quite delicious. This is no secret though so be prepared to wait...especially if you go on a weekend in season.

“Great breakfast and staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Like others, once we found this cafe, we came back the following day. Yes, there was a wait both days, but such a friendly staff and great breakfast, we really did not mind the wait. The omelets were large (3 eggs). We'll definitely eat there again when visiting Sarasota / St. Armand's Circle.
