It is amazing to also get lunch items at breakfast time for us very early risers! As usual the food was great and the staff friendly. It is the first restaurant that I have visited that I felt went above and beyond to protect their...clients during this COVID-19 pandemic. Kudos!!More

Read the other comments. Be prepared for rude people. It's as though we interrupt their day with our business. FBO staff equally rude. Manager threatened us and harassed me and my children. Venice staff are rude.

While visiting Venice we were looking for a good place to eat. We came across Suncoast and the food was good as well as the service.

Anyone who is familiar with this delightful eatery will know that CHEF TONY can be a great comic too. He often entertains his guests to the delight of all present. Today was no exception. My friend Kathy and I met here for lunch and as...always were pleased with Brooke's great service and the delicious food that Chef Tony keeps cooking up. Kathy wanted the soft TACOS, which came with a side of RICE & BEANS. I wanted my new favorite, which is the GRILLED CHEESE....but not just any old grilled cheese, to this one I add HAM, TURKEY, BACON & TOMATO with PROVOLONE as my cheese of preference. OH MY..what a great combination of flavors...if you haven't tried it, you might want to next time you visit there. I also recommend his unique RABBIT STEW, another one of my favorites...not too many places in Florida offer that on their menu. Chef Tony comes up with a lot of unique dishes and each one of them is a winner. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE!!!!More

Our breakfast this morning at Suncoast Cafe was top notch, as usual. My husband had a cheese omelet and I had the Biplane - eggs, pancakes, and sausage. They have the best coffee around. We love this local restaurant and hope they survive these difficult...times.More

Meals were hot and freshly made, Curry was wonderful, not too spicy, servers fast and friendly. We’re becoming regulars for sure!

My first visit here. I had the Cuban. Delicious! I can't fault them for that. Most dishes have curry, jerk spice - both are not my choices, so my selections were limited. Waitress very attentive and patient with the new comer. I ordered the coleslaw...as a side for my sandwich - overly sweet. Suggestion - Please have more options that don't include onions, garlic, or any other lingering spices for us that have customer facing jobs.More

Geoff was our server and he was very attentive to our needs. Tony is a wonderful chef, and the food is always fresh and great. Tony also has a personality, and we really enjoy his banter! We will be back often! Barb har...

It had been awhile since I had lunch here, but I just had to have that AWESOME GRILLED CHEESE AGAIN. Now I never used to think of a grilled cheese as a great meal, but when I first tried it here at Suncoast Cafe, I...was just blown away!!! I ordered it with BACON, HAM AND TOMATO added to WHOLE WHEAT TOAST, and a side of fries....and boy I was in heaven!!!! Alexia was a new server (for me anyway) and she did a phenominal job. Paying utmost attention to every need and making sure everything was done to perfection. Absolutely great service!!! Chef Tony is always a delight to visit with, he has a great way of making people feel like family and he makes you feel like he is genuinely happy to see you. Definitely one of the reason why I highly recommend this place!!!More

Since I’m not vegan, I have no idea. You might call the restaurant. I’m sure they can help you out.

Thank you for your inquiry. We are very small with with only 26 seats at tables which makes it very difficult to have 20 people at one time but we have done it. This depends on the day of the week as well as the time of... More
