Terrible service, very mediocre and less than mediocre food served not hot, interminable waits for service, food--they blame the computer, but this is months now. Effusive, over the top descriptions on the menu and then the food is so very ordinary...bad quality bacon, tasteless food in general.... I have been there 4 times because of the ambience to take out... More

Best. Breakfast. EVER. I have dined here several times at a variety of times between 9am and 2pm and the service is always on point. The coconut pancakes and hash browns on the side have become the go to meal and it is always consistent in quality. The outdoor patio is the cutest and the occasional visit from the friendly...

A great spot for a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Breakfast on the patio was delightful. The service was extremely attentive and friendly. The food was good but not great and, like every other breakfast place we have tried in Sarasota, the coffee was flavorless. With so many great breakfast places around, will probably not go back.

First of all Ali welcomes us as soon as we walk through the doror: "Hi I'm Ali and you can sit anywhere you like." We chose the patio and Jessie took over from there. The pancake choices are unusual and difficult to choose from. I chose buckwheat vs. the buttermilk with lemon curd and vanilla bean syrup - WOW .... More

This is a home run! I'm definitely going back! The Blood orange mimosas are money!! I had the Spanish omelet & my mother had the Belgian waffle. Both were delicious & the proportions were perfect. The service was friendly & we were seated promptly. The tables were nicely spaced, so we didn't feel packed in. Parking is tight, but worth... More

We eat here quite frequently. They have a great menu and super wait staff. You will be hard pressed to find a better breakfast or lunch spot.

First time for Breakfast and found it strange that Sunday Morning there was no line at the door. The food was very small in proportion to the price. Breakfast is any restaurants major profit menu and should be plentiful. Apparently this is under recent new ownership and I question some of the practices, 1 slice of toast and you have... More

Nice atmosphere. Went with some friends. I ordered a Mimosa, without looking what the price of it would be at first. Almost $8; which I would have steered away from if I knew that, but it was my fault for not looking. I'm on a special diet right now, so I have to be selective in what I eat. They... More

We visited Station 400 last week for brunch. It was busy....so plan on a wait, but it is well worth the wait! It's a bustling cafe with a nice menu. Anything that we asked for gluten free the answer was always "yes"! That makes us so happy. They had gluten free french toast, gf pancakes with all types of toppings,... More
