This is a chain of restaurants that doesn't feel like a chain. Their menu is upscale breakfast food, healthy, attractively presented and the service was efficient... and the coffee, very good, kept on coming (without being annoying). We were seated quickly and although they were very busy we weren't rushed. The pancakes with ricotta and lemon curd were delicious, Friends... More

This restaurant overlooks a beautiful small lake. You can sit by the window and enjoy a great cup of coffee and a wonderful meal. My friend and I had breakfast and I thought the Eggs Benedict were among the best I have ever had. The waitress was very attentive to all her customers and we had a great experience.

Late breakfast, scrambled eggs and cheddar on top off avocado and bacon, on top of breakfast potatoes. Texas toast, fruit and preserve. Great menu choices. Service was friendly but slow.

This breakfast/lunch restaurant is so good! Fresh food. The best cinnamon chip pancakes I've ever had. Cooked perfect! Very good organic juices. The breakfast potatoes were the best. There was no taste of being cooked/fried in oil. Good location in Sarasota. They were busy both times we went there, but we were seated as soon as we walked in. Very... More

fell across this place by accident, but it was truly delicious. Great service, yummy hot coffee, best fresh orange juice I've EVER had, and a wonderfully delicious breakfast. I'd go back here in a flash! Totally healthy food or not--I had a cinnamon bit pancake that was unbelievable. Highly recommend!
