The best kept secret in Venice! Food is incredible. So many favorites here…the chicken curry, Cuban sandwich, French toast, omelets, biscuits and gravy….so much to love about this place. Chef Tony and staff do an amazing job.

We came for a late breakfast and ended up having eggs and pastries and splitting a lunch meal. I had a quesadilla type of sandwich, and it was delicious. Quick service for as busy as it was and our waitress was friendly. Good coffee and...friendly atmosphere, the pastries were delicious, they were like muffins or cupcakes...lots of menu choices, it was hard to choose.More

Not too long ago I met a lovely lady through a new friendship circle and I was delighted to hear that she likes to try new restaurants. I knew rightaway that I had to introduce her to this place. Chef Tony, as always was quite...entertaining, and the food and service were outstanding as I expected. I do believe Suncoast Cafe will have a new loyal customer on their hands. Highly recommend this place!!!More

We’ve been wanting to try this place for a while. Totally disappointed. I can only review what I ate which was the Eggs Benedict. The English muffin was totally soggy. In addition the so called hollandaise sauce was clear with a hint of yellow. Not...one picture posted was anywhere near what I had. I noticed another man at the next table take two bites of his breakfast before setting his fork down snd covering plate with napkin.More

Sorry to say that it had been quite awhile since I ventured out here, but so glad I stopped in there today for lunch. Chef Tony, who gives you the greatest smile, makes you really feel special and welcome. Today I ordered the TUNA SALAD...SANDWICH, but started with a bit of that amazing tasting CHILI, and then of course ate all of the perfect FRENCH FRIES. I usually ask for Mayonaise to dip my fries in, but I was told Chef Tony had invented something new, which he called REMOULADE, and let me tell you, it was the PERFECT accompaniment to my fries. Ate every single one!!!! Of course took a bowl of CHILI home with me, so I can enjoy another great meal from this fabulaous little eatery. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!More

Went here for Saturday breakfast with my son. I had the St Lucian quesadilla with fried plantains and he had the kiddie French toast. Everything was delicious, the waitress was attentive, the cook was entertaining and the view was perfect! Perfect way to start the...weekend. Will definitely be back!More

Based on reviews, decided to try this out. Do not sit at the counter if you want to enjoy your food. Counter seating gives you a view of the cooking and after watching a little you may not want to eat there. We saw the...one cook touch everything that went on the grill and on the plate. If there was any hand washing, we missed it. Lots of opportunities for cross contamination. Saw the microwave in frequent operation. My wife ordered a well done patty melt. It came out cut in half and looked medium rare with juices running on the plate. She sent it back and we saw the cook grab the sandwich and briefly touch the edges to the grill and put it on a clean plate. He then grabbed the fries off the juice covered plate and put them on the clean plate. My wife refused the meal. I got a Cuban breakfast. It tasted okay. The fried potatoes were swimming in grease and I couldn’t eat them. We ordered a biscuit on the side and never got that. There was also a charge for toast on our bill. We hadn’t ordered or received that. Got them to remove the patty melt, biscuit, and toast from the bill. Do not recommend.More

It was nice, good food friendly staff. Was kind of slow with coffee. It's was nice sitting and looking at the airstrip. Will stop back there again when in Venice.

Very good food! Visited on a Saturday morning. Breakfast was delicious and the lunch specials looked unique. Chef has serious credibility from past employments. He is from St. Lucia and menu reflects Caribbean flair, although plenty of American favorites if you are not adventurous. We...will definitely be back!More

My wife and I have been coming to this place every year since 2014. We found it on our first stay-cation in Venice and love going there for breakfast. We arrived 24 July 2021 in the morning for breakfast. First thing that hit me was...we had to enter into via the west entrance. The food was great as usual. The wait service was exceptional.....however....the old Battle Axe Bouncer at the front door was completely without sensitivity, compassion or did she have a sense of humor. She needs to go. Her air around her sends out negative vibes.More
