Had a short wait for breakfast... 20 minutes. Had the priviledge of having one of the owners wait on us! She had the best attitude and put s smile on everyone's face. If you go try the mango coconut French toast. It was a special, the coconut is actually in the bread. Not too sweet and fresh mangoes on top.

This little unasuming place is always packed to the gills so don't be surprised if you have to wait. Their seating arrangements are less than ideal but once you do get seated you will love the neighborhood feel and the sunny atmosphere.
The wait staff are friendly and the service is relativly quick. It's the kind of place where people are on a first name basis.
The food is ample and fresh for the money. Everything looks delicious passing by so it is difficult to choose. You can always get breakfast or lunch. They have traditional diner yummies like omelettes, or ruebens but they also have healthy twists as well. Their signature mango salad is delicious and unusual (grandma's recipe).

Downtown Sarasota had been lacking an early breakfast place for along time. The Toasted Mango has excellently prepared food and importantly-it is neat and clean. They open 7 days at 7am, and everything is ready to go. Service has been just fine before the crowds show. I've enjoyed the oversized biscuit with sausage gravy as well as standard eggs with turkey links and marble rye toast. Only the grits could use a little more work. Everything is reasonably priced at breakfast as with the lunchtime sandwich offerings.

Although the first thing you will notice is that there is frightfully minimal parking, there is parking available on the side street next to the restaurant. The restauant itself is rather small, but they manage to make it welcoming despite the size. They have an imaginative menu with fantastic specials that change multiple times per week (duck quesadillas, carrot cake pancakes,etc.). They have fresh baked muffins that are always fantastic- try the Harvest flavor for a hearty spice cake appetizer to your breakfast. They are great about honoring special requests. Expect to pay higher than average breakfast prices- $32 for my husband and I is average. The higher price though, in our eyes, is justified due to the higher than average quality of the food. It breaks the mold for normal breakfast chains!

Their website states "kind servants who truly enjoyed the art of 'service'" but the owner/hostess is brusque and rude.
