It was Sunday, I planned to order lunch but they only serve breakfast on Sundays. No problem, the breakfast menu is creative, varied and there were some very intriguing specials. My husband ordered a sausage and cheese omelette and he was very satisfied with it. I ordered the huevos rancheros and I was amazed with it -- it was absolutely one of the best breakfasts I have ever enjoyed. Scrambled eggs on a delicious chorizo bed with potatoes, guacamole, sour cream, fresh salsa, with warm tortillas. The eggs were perfectly cooked, soft and fluffy. The flavors together were fantastic. I asked the server to let the chef know how much this dish was appreciated. A bit silly to get so excited about breakfast but hey. ;)

While you good choose typical egg and pancake type foods think outside the plate and try some of the delicious, unique selections. Enjoyed breakfast that reflected creativity and love of cooking by the chef.
Seems to be a nicely kept secret since it wasn't that busy. Maybe because it's in a strip mall at a busy intersection.
However, according to their website, this family has much experience operating restaurants in the area.
Try it, I hope you'll like it like I did.

This little local gem was a great find on our vacation to Sarasota. It was a very understated storefront in a strip mall that we would never have known to visit if our friends hadn't taken us for breakfast.

The food was outstanding. The service good. The baked goods looked great, but their portions were so large, we had no room for dessert. I would definitely give this another visit when we are back in Sarasota.

This is a great breakfast treat. The food is all home made and most of the selections you would not find on a menu in most restaurants. .It is our favorite place when we are in Florida. My wife had the Corn Beef Hash special. She said it was the best she has ever had. I had the biscuits and gravy. The biscuit is fresh made and this dish is fantastic. The prices are very reasonable and the service is excellent. I have tried many of the selections and they are excellent and sometimes most unique
