We really enjoyed this restaurant. Wonderful outside eating area! Very friendly and attentive staff. My salad was delicious with a tasty homemade dressing. My husband really liked his omelette. Definitely recommend this place for breakfast or lunch!

Ate here twice for breakfast and loved it! The menu featured something to fit most tastes. Very fresh ingredients. Be prepared though to wait for a table. Recommend getting there early. Kid friendly.

Came Monday morning- Doesn't take long to be seated but it is bustling - about 5 min to the beach. The bathrooms are clean. There is a $3 fee if you want to split your check- a little greedy for a few taps on the...screen but okay. I ordered the flower child omelette - for the price ($15) this was underwhelming and I wasn't excited for the next bite. It was a healthier choice but I highly recommend Root for health food that tastes amazing! Also ordered the Pops country ($16) and that was like comfort food with the gravy smothered on top - it was good. The A la carte is pricey- The service was prompt . Another Broken egg is closer to the beach with no upcharges.More

My wife and I dined there this past summer in June and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service. While visiting Sarasota and its surrounding areas, we saw this restaurant online, and being a fan of the Grateful Dead, we saw the emblem and decided to...go. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoor seating is in a garden area with many tables. Indoor seating is nice, but the walls should have more pictures or records on the wall (perhaps some record covers). The menu has a variety of breakfast and lunch items with names of popular songs. I recommend the Tuna Melt, the Benedict's, the iced mocha cappuccino, and many other items on the menu. The sell Grateful Dead Like shirts - showing the Dancing Bears with their logo of the Sun Garden Cafe at a reasonable price. I love my shirts from there, especially because they are super comfortable. All the servers there are kind and offer great service. One MAJOR shout out is to BIANCA. She is our favorite server. When we ate there in June she was our server on 2 different occasions, and this past week we went twice. One day, Bianca was off, so we had to come back (after we ate), one day before we headed back to Miami. We were able to see her and enjoy 1 last meal before our vacation was over.More

Recently was on vacation in siesta key so we tried a bunch of different breakfast spots and this one was my favorite. They had outdoor seating ready but we waited to eat indoors. The omelette was the best I had all trip. The staff was...super friendly and everything was nice and cleanMore

We enjoyed our breakfast at the Sun Garden Cafe. We were asked if we wished to sit inside or outside, and we opted for outside as it was very shaded. Our server was Missy, and she was very attentive and very welcoming. I had the...'kitchen sink' omelet and was able to customize it as I wished. A fluffy biscuit and creamy enough Charleston grits completed my breakfast. My daughter loved her French toast, and I think my other daughter had granola. My husband opted for the sticky bun and they are not shy about the vanilla icing. All was great!More

When you look for a breakfast place they all do your typical eggs, bacon and toast dishes. This place offers some healthier options. Service was quick and attentive. We visited more than once and that says a lot because I usually like to keep trying...other places but other breakfast restaurants were disappointing me so we stuck with them. Try the steel cut oatmeal!More

Went here for breakfast on last day. Got the Avocado Toast with Canadian bacon, eggs, and tomato. It was very good and fresh! I got a little overheated and the waitress got me some ice and let me move inside without delay. She was amazing!...Would certainly recommend!More

We enjoyed a nice brunch on a Thursday here. It didn't seem too crowded, but our group had to wait a bit for a table. We were seated inside as the large table outside was occupied and they don't move tables together. Our brunch was...fantastic. The service was excellent, and the food was amazing. I think we all ordered breakfast items from waffles, to burritos, to create your own omelet, to breakfast sandwiches (they are huge) and Elvis's fried chicken plate. Large portions and delicious food. Highly recommend.More

Outdoor dining here was a real pleasure, close to everything and yet tucked aside. And loved the title dish. So popular they can run out, so inquire ahead!

Food and service was very good. Would have given this place a 5* rating, however, we experienced an annoying "atmosphere issue," which ruined the experience for us. In hindsight, we should have just asked to be moved to their outdoor patio area, but it was...a bit chilly that morning, so decided to stay inside. Fairly crowded, and it was quite loud because we ended up being seated next to a young woman and her children who, even though they were finished eating, continued to stay at their table playing computer games, and mom was talking to someone on her cell with the speaker on, ugh! Eventually the manager came and asked her to turn it off; quite frustrating for those seated around her, and just plain rude, in my opinion. A bit on the pricey side for breakfast, but the portions are large and the food was very good. The Traveling Wilbury Benedict for me, and Max's Blisscuit with Wavy Gravy for my husband. We were disappointed with their cappuccino's, however; quite small for the price. All told, a unique breakfast menu that is well worth the price!More

Lovely staff, pleasant seating both inside and out - staff are super friendly and food portions are large and quality is very good - its more expensive than you’d think but I guess that’s the location.
