We ate here on Memorial Day. I had the Tex Mex omelette. Absolutely delicious and cooked perfect. I had a fresh muffin as well and it was great. Visit hungry because I didn’t see small portions of anything. Our waitress was very attentive and kept...our coffee cups topped off. This will definitely be on our itinerary the next time we visit.More

Eclectic place, awesome menu! The menu variety is excellent with home made hash, fantastic muffins, and quiche in a fun atmosphere. I would definitely come back anytime.

So, first time being here and wasn’t sure what to expect. To start, the food was fantastic! Then, the service….oh boy, the service. We sat outside on the sidewalk seating. It took about 10 minutes for anyone to come out there after we were seated...and given menus. Our server asked for drink orders and we ordered our meal too..it had been long enough we had decided already. Fast forward another 15 minutes and we get our drinks, at least our waters. Another 10 minutes go by and we get our food. We asked about the latte that was ordered and our server said they were out of latte pods and she couldn’t make one. Wonder why she didn’t say anything 30 minutes before that when we ordered it! Service was some of the worst I have had around Sarasota. She wanted to clear plates before we were even done eating….then dropped the dirty silverware slides off the plate on my lap! The food, was some of the best I’ve had. Guess I gotta pick my preference of good service or great food because it doesn’t seem possible at Word of Mouth to get both.More

We went for breakfast and there were many things that sounded interesting on their menu. I ended up getting a special with chocolate chip and nut pancakes with strawberries and whip cream, plus eggs and bacon. My husband enjoyed his corned beef hash and eggs...with homemade hash - plus Word potatoes and toast (a lot to eat). We were surprised that the restaurant wasn't busier.More

Was going to rate this very good but actually rethinking experience was excellent. Weekend visit in Sarasota with daughter who lived there. Lunch with my two daughters and wife. Seated outside. Service was excellent. Ordered Eduardo Omelette, Cheese Blintzes, BYO Omelette, Veggie & Spuds. All...food served hot, portions generous, prices reasonable.More

Left Missouri just in time and headed to Sarasota. Stayed in the Gulf Gate Estates neighborhood and found this jewel in the village. We loved it so much we ate there 3 mornings. They had breakfast specials every morning and their portions are so generous,...we split our omelet entrees. Food was very fresh and tasty.More

I ordered Eggs Benedict & it was great. The hollandaise was exceptional, I could taste the lemon, the largest english muffin I have ever seen & the home fries were very good. Great breakfast for a reasonable price.

Amazing food and service! We’ve been twice so far in our 9 day trip. Will definitely be coming back! The staff is super sweet and the place isn’t packed at all! We went before 10am. Very safe in regards to covid

Every time we are in town we try somewhere new. We were not disappointed with Word Of Mouth. The breakfast burrito was hot and really good. I asked for the potatoes to be crispy and they were perfect. My wife had the Manhattan Scramble and...it was great and her potatoes were perfect also. It is in a neat old part of town I really liked too.More

Let me begin by saying that I am not completely unbiased in regards to this restaurant. Many, Many years ago I worked at Le Meridien Hotel in New Orleans. Back then as it happened Mario Mazzini was the General Manager of that hotel. Suffice to...say that I learnt a lot during those years and while I did not work directly with Mr. Mazzini everything I know about hotels and specially top notch customer service I learn under his leadership. It was therefore not surprising to me how much my family and I enjoyed our visit to The Original Word of Mouth. This place is very casual reminding me of a combination of an American dinner and a southern European country restaurant. The staff was very friendly, gracious and attentive it is truly a pleasure to go to a place where there is so much emphasis placed on customer service. As far as the food goes, I had the Eggs Florentine with steamed redskin potatoes and they where delicious. The eggs where perfectly poached and the Hollandaise Sauce was superb. One of the members of our party had a Tuna Melt Sandwich which looked and according to her was also delicious. I can not wait until next time I visit Sarasota again so I can try the Huevos Rancheros and more.More

We stayed for a few days in Sarasota and had breakfast each day here. Friendly staff, great food, cozy place, convenient location. Be careful, portion are humongous! The stuffed french toast is a must-have!

Service was great, food was GREAT! I ordered the Chicago Omelette with “Word” Fries (Diced Red Skin Potatoes) and Muffin (Pumpkin and Peach with Pineapples). AMAZING!!! Mimosa was a little too strong for me but this place is definitely a GO-TO!

Eat here often and have never had a bad experience or meal. The food is excellent as is the service and prices are very reasonable. The bodybuilder omelette is my favorite and my husband loves their quiche. It’s not on the menus so ask.
