We're from out of state and travel to Sarasota every 3 months or so to visit with family, and this is a must on every trip! From being seated to heading out, the friendly atmosphere just can't be beat. And as always, the food's terrific. With an expansive menu, you can't go wrong. Thanks to all at the "B'fast House",...

I went with a few friends of mine, it happened by accident, because The Tea House was not opened yet. I just ordered the fruit salad, because I didn't have enough cash on me for the $10 minimum for debit/credit. The fruit dish was everything a fruit dish should look like and be like; it was so good, I ordered... More

This darling cottage is where I want to wake up every morning. A family owned business at its finest, Our hostess/ owner trained the cooks to prepare her family inspired recipes to her specifications, which results in a successful outcome every time. Not only were we impressed with our meals, the cottage is decorated in a delightful collection of colorful... More

Food was very good! I had a grouper sandwich & my husband had shrimp and grits. Decor was bright and inviting; very Florida themed. Waitress was very attentive. Will definitely come back.

Quaint breakfast spot. We came to The Breakfast House from prior TripAdvisor reviews. We we went on a Friday morning and the hostess seated us quickly, we chose to eat outdoors. We couldn't have been happier with our meal. I had the Island pancakes, fluffy and filled with pineapple, coconut and macadamia nuts. My husband had the Key West Omelette... More

You can't make "reservations" here, only call aheads. There were seven in our party. After being greeted by two friendly hostesses we waited on the porch. The entire time (30 minutes) different staff members checked on us, gave us menus, and kept us informed of the wait time... It was well worth the wait! Every dish was prepared to order... More

What a delightful and charming house for breakfast. They brought in fresh raspberries when I arrived and I asked if they could make me raspberry pancakes ( which was not on the menu) and they certainly did. They were served with fresh real maple syrup and plenty of hot coffee refills. I highly recommend this choice!

Oh my goodness. It was love at first sight with this cute, yellow cottage cafe! A friend and I were craving breakfast for lunch on a Sunday, and I'm so, so happy she recommended this place! I ordered an egg, turkey, and swiss sandwich with grits, and my taste buds thanked me. I finished every last morsel and didn't even... More

What a lovely place. We sat in the outdoor area and it is charming. The food was excellent. Servers very friendly. My one compaint. I drink hot tea and find that 1 tea bag is just not enough for a teapot as I like it strong. So I asked for a 2nd tea bag and was charged £2.49 extra. I... More
