“Try it, you will like everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Chuck the owner treated us like friends. Linda my favorite waitress was very kind. If you need someone who talks Spanish José the cooker is Mexican and Ana also from the kitchen is Chilean. I was 8 days in Venice and had breakfast there like 4 times and dinner like 3 times. In the afternoon they have someone playing music too.

“Nice surprise for lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We were ehaded to another cafe in Venice (downtown) but it was closed on Mondays. We stopped in at Burgundy Cafe instead. Our food was fresh and tasty. The cafe was clean and bright with local photography (some good, some not so good) on the walls. A simple but diverse menu was easy to read and order from. We would consider a second visit... but nothing really grabbed us as extraordinary except for the overwhelming gratitude from the server and owner. Having celebrated just one year in business, we certainly hope they keep going. We recommend something that sets them apart - fresh baked mini-muffins, a yummy pasta salad side, delicious homemade potato chips. It was just too, well, ordinary. They need to create a niche. Diner? Cafe? Comfort Food? I couldn't figure out what would bring me back before i tried another "cafe." First. A definite solid cafe, you will not be disappointed.

All of us enjoyed Burgundy Square Cafe. Very friendly. Homey atmosphere. Played old-school music (standards) which we enjoyed.

The manager checked on us twice. Very nice. Waitress was friendly. We sat outside and that was good. My quesadilla was very good. Huge portion.

Very fresh ingredients, staff, owner and musician all came and talked with me. Shrimp and spinach salad with plenty of shrimp. I will have to come back and try more.
