Thank you for the positive feedback. Looking forward to seeing you both again soon. There are a few more delicious sandwiches on the menu for you to try. Not to mention the scrumptious pastries for dessert.

Always a good place to enjoy a meal and take a break from the usual fare around the area. Enjoy a stroll around lovely downtown Venice, among the most beautiful small towns in America.

We went here because I was dying for a good cup of iced coffee and to my surprise it was heavenly. The ice for the ice cubes are made from coffee so the drink does not get diluted which is a real nice touch. Not...More

Fantastic little friendly place with a cozy interior and friendly service....AND the most amazing coffee! So refreshing to find this place in a world of chain bistros with mediocre coffee and service.

I loved finding this place while in the Siesta Key area. A real Euro feel. Croissants from France,- fully baked here. Really. Wonderful owner. She made me an omelette on the lightest croissant ever. And, they have free, strong wifi. A real find!
