I had a late morning tee time at one of the local golf courses. That gave me an excuse to drop in and check out this highly rated breakfast restaurant. Bottom line up front… I fully concur with the preponderance of Excellent ratings. I usually reserve “Excellent” ratings for what I call “go to destination, special occasion” restaurants. That is...

We went here for Sunday breakfast and were amazed by the amount of seafood in the eggs. I ordered salmon omelet and there was so much salmon, in two large pieces, that I basically ate that and left the eggs. Companion had lobster and shrimp Eggs Benedict and was also amazed at the large amount of seafood in it. Place... More

What a great little place for breakfast! We just happened to drive by this adorable little cottage like building on the Trail, and thought we'd go in for a bite. We were greeted by a friendly face and was taken back to the patio, where a huge, lovely tree welcomes you with big open limbs. Another friendly face took our... More

The bacon crumble chocolate chip pancake were awful! Very dry and overlooked, very few chocolate chips and very hard bacon! I could not eat them! Friendly staff and clean place!

Going to Sarasota this winter? Stop in for breakfast or lunch at the "Cottage." Simple fare done with the care that grandma took in delighting her family from the kitchen. Homemade quiche, authentic "eggs in a basket (blanket), w/ marble Rye, try eggs--any style--for a hearty breakfast that just makes you feel good. They even know how to make real... More

The Breakfast Cottage was recommended to us because we were looking for a dog-friendly restaurant. We were running from Hurricane Matthew and needed a place where we could take our dog with us, and this was the perfect place! They had treats and bacon for our loving dog and treated her like their own. The food was also out of... More

Had a short wait on a late Sunday morning but it was well worth it. The special French toast was yummy and the coffee was the best I had in the area. The biscuits and gravy were just right textured and seasoned. The cheese grits needed more cheese in my opinion. But that was the only stumble.

We live nearby and have tried the breakfast cottage three times in the past few weeks. The cottage is a cute little place, has inside and outside seating and it's pet friendly. We have ordered a number of different breakfasts, and have been very happy with everything. Bacon is thick and delicious, corned beef hash is great, and if you... More

The quaint appearance of the building is what attracted us to this restaurant. It was only about a mile from where we were staying for a few days in the area. We are happy that we gave them a try. As nice as the outside is, the inside is just as appealing. It feels like you are in a friends... More

Stopped by here on a busy Sunday morning. A short wait for a table outside on the terrace in the shade of the tree. Great service and local information from the staff. We had the Eggs Benedict and Island Pancakes (huge) both good. Would return here if in the area again.

Thank NRox
