The location is near the center of downtown Sarasota. The staff is friendly and efficient. We had breakfast and found everything prepared and served to our liking. Definitely a nice place for breakfast, brunch or lunch.

We went to Burns Court last night because we were told they had dinner with live jazz. We made a reservation and all that was available was seats at the bar. Fine with us, we love sitting at the bar.

The atmosphere is really nice with a very European/New Orleans type vibe that is pretty hard to find in Sarasota. The gentleman that served us was charming and friendly and our desserts... More

burns Court Cafe is a nice intimate jazz spot on Saturday night. The food is deplorable. Having said that, perhaps I should say the evening food is deplorable but if you are lucky enough to want quiche or a homemade pastry then I would say good.

Best part of the evening was the Cuban entertainer on Tuesday night....great music and quite a showman! Also, loved the pate! My friend ordered octopus and it tasted spoiled...so she had a mushroom quiche instead that was fair.
