We were looking for a good place to have lunch and this cafe had a great menu, so we stopped in. The sandwiches were great and we would go back the next time we are in town. Great service, also.

Madison breakfast was over seasoned warm potatoes, cold bacon and inedible melon in the pot of fruit. Eggs were fine. Someone should start a movement to ban under ripe melon in breakfast dishes! Nothing to go out of your way for.

Tuna sandwich was good, matzo ball soup was just okay, turkey Ruben was just average. No free water which was kinda Annoying. The pickles were super sourer.

Great food at very reasonable prices in the very trendy St. Armand’s Circle area near Longboat Key. Order at counter then server brings to your table. Supposed to be great lunch spot too although we only had breakfast.
