Great great breakfast place on Venice ave. Had the eggs Benedict classic and it was absolutely delicious. The word potatoes were delicious too. My GF ordered the cinnamon roll French toast and it was equally as delicious. The service was great as well. I would...definitely recommend this place if your looking for a tasty breakfast nearby.More

While this restaurant is in a strip mall, it has stand alone taste and service. Be sure to check out the specials before ordering. The overnight French toast and Cali Eggs Benedict were amazing! The homemade Hollandaise sauce was perfection along with the home fries....This quaint breakfast and lunch cafe is a hit when you are on vacay!More

Last week we stopped to find somewhere to eat breakfast on our way back from the Coldplay concert in Tampa the night before. We found this hidden gem tucked away in a small plaza that serves the best breakfast we've ever had. It's like eating...at a 5 star restaurant. Each one of the plates we had was outstanding. It felt as if Gordon Ramsey was in the kitchen. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it as I'm writing this review. It was that impressionable. That's all we talked about as we drove back to Miami. But what truly elevated our experience was the world class service that Patti, our waitress, have us. Kudos to Patti for making us feel right at home. I'm not one to write reviews but, this left such an impression on me that I want to thank them out loud. Thank you all at Word of Mouth! VictorMore

I was visiting a friend in Venice, Florida and I wanted to go to the best breakfast place in town. Well, this is where we went. Wow, this was a delicious breakfast. Our server, Patti was fantastic. She was super friendly and nice. The Bloody...Mary was the highlight of my meal; one of the best BM's I've ever had!!!! I would definitely recommend The Original Word of Mouth.More

For $62 for breakfast. It was absolutely disgusting. The pancakes were dry and eggy. The bacon was dehydrated flakes. And the eggs were horrible. The only thing edible was the fruit. I would not ever go here again.

It's been a good rule of thumb for us, when we visit a new area, to find out where the locals eat. And, this place didn't disappoint. My mother-in-law, who recently moved to Venice, lives nearby and took us here for breakfast. It was busy,...but we only had to wait about 5 minutes for a table. The first thing you'll notice is the display case with all the fresh baked goodies. There's a cinnamon roll as big as a plate! The menu is loaded with lots of items, so choosing was difficult as everything sounded good. Our server was very friendly and made sure our coffee mugs were never empty. The food was delivered promptly and it was piping hot. The blueberry muffins were delicious. Overall, we highly recommend this spot for breakfast. You won't be disappointed!More

I heard about Word of Mouth through word of mouth, someone asked me for directions there & saying it is the BEST brunch place! They were right! Amazingly fast service by our pleasant waitress Leslie, even though it was packed on a Sat morning. I...had a special, bacon lovers breakfast quesadilla with guacamole & salsa on the side. It’s the first time I’ve tried a Mexican-inspired breakfast dish & it was delicious! My hubby had banana-walnut pancakes that were fluffy & flavorful. He is picky & he loved them! Mimosa’s were heavy on the champagne (just a touch of OJ) so no complaints about that!! We will be back every time we visit Venice & have already told many others how good it is.More

We were close by and thought we would try a carry out order for our first time here. We both ordered the chicken salad, with fresh fruit, on a bed of lettuce. It looked and tasted absolutely delicious. The fruit was truly fresh. It included:...strawberries, raspberries, pineapple, melon, bananas, and black berries.More
