Have been there for both Breakfast and lunch, Lots of parking and seems to be a very popular spot. Specials board is clearly marked so you know what's going on.

Haven't eaten here in a couple years. Understand that at some point, the management changed. The menu had definitely changed. I had lunch with 2 friends, and we all had different breakfast omelettes. The omelettes were pretty generous with the ingredients. The fruit that we had as our side dish had seen better days. Value was comparable to local eateries.

Have dined here before. Stopped for a late breakfast enroute to a matinee concert in Sarasota. One of the daily specials was 2 eggs, bacon, toast and home fries, hash browns or grits and it included coffee or tea. The wife had hers over medium with home fries, wheat toast and coffee. I had mine scrambled with home fries, white... More

The service and atmosphere is of a small town diner. People are friendly, service good and food is ok. Taking them a little while to get their nitche and finally achieving that. Always improving. Do not seem to hurry you out.

We visited the Ellenton Mall and were looking for a place for lunch. We saw all the fast food places nearby and then saw a small sign for the Ellenton Café. What a wonderful delight of a local restaurant serving home made food at very reasonable prices. My wife had a vegetarian omelet and I have the turkey dinner. Both... More

We went to this café for years before it was sold. At first, after the new owners took over, the food changed and was not as good. Recently, we've returned to give it another try and the food is much better. Looks like the new owners are getting the hang of it.

I never stopped here before despite driving by quite often and using the post office next door a lot! I was on my way to an appointment so I ordered "to go", but I did sit down outside at their tables to "dress" my bagel. The coffee here is fantastic. I don't like it too strong where it gives you...
