Roger and Isabelle came from Germany with two young children, and they love it here in Sarasota: great weather and great people. “I was self-employed in Germany, too, but here, you have the whole day with your guests, talking and meeting new people,” he said. “I think I like this more than what I did before. There are a lot of intelligent, interesting people here.”
“Trés magnifique! This restaurant is quaint, cozy, and delicious. The atmosphere is definitely a bistro style place with American and pseudo French (pastries) cuisine. My hubby and I got a cinnamon bagle with cream cheese and a bacon and egg croissant which were both delicious. The tea is great quality and the coffee was very tasty. The service is lovely and the woman who took our order spoke French and was very kind. This will definitely be a place we come to each time we visit Sarasota! – Adrianna Smithson
“Our favorite place to go! Not only are the meals affordable (surprising for St. Armands area), they are also delicious and filling! Plus, the owners are simply remarkable! We always make it a point to stop in, even when we are not hungry…sometimes you just need a mimosa or German beer in your day! They also just purchased an espresso machine– the lattes were perfection in a cup! Way to go!
Suggested Food: Everything! (Though my husband swears by the Asian wrap.)
Suggested Drink: Latte, a mimosa, German beer, etc…
You will not be disappointed!” – Kate L.
“Amazing! Phenomenal food! Sweet customer service! Highly recommend! Can’t wait to go back! I had an omelette and potatoes. It was accompanied with fresh fruit salad and homemade marmalade! And a tasty Bloody Mary! So good!” – Joanna1386
“Soooo delish!!!!! The cook made my kids their own special pancakes covered in powdered sugar. Hubby and I had breakfast sandwiches. One ham, egg and cheese on a wheat bagel and an egg and cheese on a croissant. Both were very good! I was planning on stopping at Starbucks after but saw their selection of coffee and I’m glad I changed my mind! I mixed their breakfast blend with a macadamia flavor and added a shot of espresso! So good! They had outside seating so my dog had room to hang out with us. They do not have booster seats but the guy working was trying to make something work. I appreciate his efforts! Too bad today is our last day in town because I would love to have another meal here soon! – Victoria O.
