Great food and atmosphere. Variety of music from cuban beat to jazz and blues! Staff are wonderful! Wine selection is superb. Beef bolognaise was excellent. And the cappuccino is the best! Love to hang out there with my friends!

We've gone to Burns Court cafe several times and the quality of the food is always excellent. From a simple coffee and croissant with homemade strawberry jam for breakfast, to their amazing quiches for lunch and on to the Black ink pasta or homemade pate for dinner and jazz Burns Court Cafe is a favorite. We really enjoy taking visitors... More

Located a few blocks from Main Street in the old Sarasota District, the cafe is a great ace for breakfast. You order at te counter and your food will be served to your table inside or outside. Pet friendly restaurant. Great menu from omelets to scramble eggs croissant with goat cheese.

This little gem of a cafe is a bit off the main path but worthwhile! Good lunch, Cappacino & gelato. Friendly staff. Doesn't disappoint! Quiche is a good choice!

A potential client offered to meet me at the Burns Court Cafe. I arrived early to make sure I could both find the cafe and nearby parking. The Cafe is cozy, friendly and offers good coffee. The baked goods looked scrumptious. The different quiche selections looked wonderful too. Cool jazz was playing in the background making the Cafe very welcoming.

The food in this Mediterranean restaurant is very good, but the highlights of this restaurant is the show, They have every Tuesday from 7:30pm-9:30pm a Cuban guitarist by the name of Renesito Avich, this guy is a Virtuoso of the Guitar. If you like music and little bit of the Cuban Music play by a Master in Guitar don't miss... More

Our first time here and while food was good, the woman at the counter taking orders was not making eye contact and grunted something about " Waadya want?" " Drink"? When the transaction was done, she just walked away. Welcome to Burns Court Cafe! That is for a $12.75 salad and a $ 10.00 sandwich; good but not great and... More

We've been coming to BCC since it opened - there's nowhere else in town that can touch Arieh's quiche or the Italian roast coffee :-) Great staff and one of the best welcomes in Sarasota! A must visit if you are in town :-)

We stopped into this corner cafe on recommendation from a shop owner down the street. The quiche was to die for - fresh, savoury with perfect homemade crust. Don't miss the fresh fruit smoothies.

The specialty salads were fresh and lovely. The Chicken Pesto and Cobb Salad were great. The ice cream after was great too. There are not many tables. A few outside. Seemed like a local neighborhood place but we tourist loved it. You place your oder inside and someone will bring the food to you.

Thank Karen W
