We have a group that typically comes for breakfast on Saturday morning. It is such a friendly, warm atmosphere. Delicious home-cooked food. Plenty of refills on coffee. Cash only.

We go here for a quick, delicious breakfast that is also affordable and served with a smile and a thank you! The home made corned beef hash is always a treat. Can't make this breakfast at home for the price they charge!

Very small area, especially "in season". Good food and excellent value. Advertising states breakfast and lunch but we were informed they are no longer serving lunch. The main issue is it is a "cash only" establishment but you don't know that until you're seated inside. Small sign behind cash register states " no tabs or credit cards - cash only".... More

My husband and I were there for breakfast with a group of friends. Down-home cooking at great prices. Our service was excellent. Quaint little place. Loved it !

Our group of 8 retired men enjoyed a variety of egg and pancake breakfasts in a small, clean restaurant with good service at an unbelievably low price. Be sure to call ahead and they will reserved a table if you have a large group. Many specials to include homemade corned beef, chipped beef, eggs Benedict, Italian sausage patties, and at... More

We had breakfast recently at Bud's, which was our first visit... It is definitely a hole in the wall style restaurant... no frills, very tiny with limited seating. Our breakfast was very good, and it seemed like there were a few regulars eating there which definitely received preferred service... We live in Englewood, and have several breakfast options, so we... More

Miss their food and decent prices but will never return after several very poor service issues in a short period of time.

Bud's has always been my favorite in Venice,Don't look for ambience just great service and good food. expect to pay for a meal what you would leave for a dinner tip in town Whether breakfast or lunch is is one of the Great local secrets.Beware of the operating hours

Every so often we decide to try an out-of-the way place to eat. On our way to Sarasota we stopped at Bud's for breakfast.It's a small restaurant with a collection of 50's movie star plates on the wall. We both had Eggs Benedict as one of the breakfast specials and it was very good! My husband Robert lived in England... More
