My standard and quest is for biscuits and gravy this place is the best I have found in the area. THe gravy is delicious with a good sausage flavor. Te other folks all thought this was one of the better breakfast places in the area.

We were in Nokomis for the weekend and we looked on TA for a place to eat breakfast. We like to eat local if all possible. The Breakfast Cottage got high marks so we decided to try it. Well all the reviewers were not wrong, this place is the boom! I had the Island Pancakes and they were soooo good!... More

We went here for Sunday breakfast and were amazed by the amount of seafood in the eggs. I ordered salmon omelet and there was so much salmon, in two large pieces, that I basically ate that and left the eggs.

What a great little place for breakfast! We just happened to drive by this adorable little cottage like building on the Trail, and thought we'd go in for a bite. We were greeted by a friendly face and was taken back to the patio, where a huge, lovely tree welcomes you with big open limbs. Another friendly face took our... More

The bacon crumble chocolate chip pancake were awful! Very dry and overlooked, very few chocolate chips and very hard bacon! I could not eat them! Friendly staff and clean place!

Going to Sarasota this winter? Stop in for breakfast or lunch at the "Cottage." Simple fare done with the care that grandma took in delighting her family from the kitchen. Homemade quiche, authentic "eggs in a basket (blanket), w/ marble Rye, try eggs--any style--for a hearty breakfast that just makes you feel good. They even know how to make real... More
