This restaurant is a tribute to Elvis. Sometimes the previous owner comes in with cowboy hat and all.
Everytime we hit Sarasota ; We eat here. It's open for breakfast and lunch only.
Foor and service is always tops.
Most of the patrons are locals so you know it's good 5 star

Though the exterior, and the interior are nothing to write anyone about, the food - it's simply good down home cooking. The term "greasy spoon" does not apply here. If you want pancakes, home fries, grits, eggs (the way you order them), and the BEST EVER biscuits and gravy.....then plant your fanny at a booth or the counter. It's cheap, it's good, the waitresses have been there for years, so obviously the owners treat them as well as their customers. That says a lot these days. CASH ONLY, breakfast and lunch only. Oh, and yes, it is where ELVIS ate.

We were taken here by a local resident and found the breakfast to be reasonable and good. We returned several times during out visit to Sarasota. The servers were friendly and attentive. It is a small simple place to eat serving breakfast and lunch...closes at 2. They use real eggs, not powdered ones which is a plus.

This place is awesome. If you like authentic Americana - we're talking fresh buttermilk pancakes, waffles and coffee this place is the place to come to. It was full of local people when we stopped by on a Sunday morning which proves what a great place it is. Cheap and delicious fare.
