The Breakfast House features a menu with me in mind. The breakfast/lunch restaurant at 1817 Fruitville Road in HIstoric Downtown Village, which opened in 2010, has a section in its extensive menu titled "Eggs Benedict Your Way." I love Eggs Benedict. I love to compare...More

Just rolled into Sarasota and stopped for lunch at The Breakfast House. Very cute house. Everything was awesome, especially the BBB omlette...bacon, brie, and apples! A must have, it was soooo good! Cheese grits were tasy and the breakfast potatoes. Highly recommend this little place...More

We've been to the popular Breakfast House several times. We've never been disappointed. There are interesting menu choices. There's usually a wait, which is a good sign. There's ample parking and places to sit while you wait.

They will take your name, #in party, and arrival time and that means a shorter wait. It's not a true reservation but when you've given advance notice they take that into consideration.
