A nice variety of sandwiches, homemade soups and salads. All ingredients are very fresh and many of the menu items change daily. Very healthy eating with exceptional flavor.

We have frequented Simons for well over 10 years from the time they were on third the present size.
as most places grow they lose a lot in the service and or quality of food. Not Simons.
The food is still the best to be had in Sarasota and the quality of both the service and the owners is always above board.
My favorite has always been the London sandwich, and my wife has more adventurous soul so she has tried almost everything they offer over the years. We have never been disappointed and gladly travel 35 miles every once in a while just to eat there, and anytime we are in Sarasota for business we make sure we stop in and say hi to Simon who is the only Englishman I have met who can actually create great food, ( stop laughing Simon.)

If you are in Sarasota or Siesta Key, this is a must try! Simon, the owner told us today that he uses all fresh ingredients, nothing frozen. The salads, are made with the freshest ingredients as are the soups. The tuna salad is so tasty. All salads and soups come with an amazing chunk of multigrain bread that is so delicious. They make all fruit smoothies and veggie ones if you're up for that. They also sell wheatgrass shots -- I've had one everyday -- haven't noticed a difference yet but it's only been a week! The restaurant isn't huge and if there is a line, don't be discouraged, Simon has a way of fitting everyone in without a long wait. Tables are cleared as soon as one party has let so another can be seated -- it all works like clockwork. Wish we could take this place home with us.

This is one of those places that is so good, I almost hesitate telling people about it because it's already way too busy. The owners, Simon and Michelle, are friendly as are most of the servers (they tend to have an offbeat, kind of goth vibe), but it's the food that's the star.

Always fresh and with innovative specials, this is the kind of place that will satisfy the pickiest eater.

From the green health smoothie crowd that only eats vegan or raw to the gourmet that doesn't care about health or calories as long as the food is fantastic, this place will make everyone happy.

We were given a gift card to Simon's some time ago. We are new to the area and just never got a chance to use it. One day, we decided to have lunch there. We ordered, had a nice lunch and the food is quite good, however, when we went to pay, we presented the gift card and they said they had stopped using them and it was not good any longer. I asked to speak to the manager...same story. We went ahead and paid and I contacted them by phone the next day and the following day, explaining why I was calling, and never got a call back. It was only $20, but this type of business practice does not speak well for possible others areas this attitude might creap in...like in the kitchen and food sources. Needless to say, we will never go back and they have bought a lot of BAD advertising by saving themselves $20.

Firstly we apologize for not responding to your phone call, we were not aware that you had called. Our new system has been in place for over three years and we posted this in our restaurant and through emails to our customers that we would honor the old cards for up to one year and then they would become void. I am sorry it took you a length of time before you did use the gift card! We understand and would like it very much if you would come by again and make yourself known to an owner and we could honor your meal. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and also for the other positive comments regarding the food.
