Love this place! We always hit it once or twice for brunch or lunch while we're in town for 10 weeks every winter with the opera. There is a nice outdoor seating/garden area in the back, which is where we sat on our most recent visit. My hub and I had omelettes (mine was brie, carmelized onions and herbs, his was chorizo and other yummy bits). Fresh fruit on the side as well as a toasted croissant. The coffee was damn good too. The service was relaxed, but there wasn't many customers at the time we were there. Someone kept walking by, transferring baked goods from the storage outside to the bakery sales area inside and asked people how everything was... we assume this was the owner/chef? Not sure though. He sure seemed happy to be there, that's for sure, and gave off a nice vibe that permeated the place. It was a nice place to be on a Sunday morning, when most places downtown aren't even open -- and the hot spots on the keys are overrun with tourists and snowbirds. Love it!

China Wok Chinese Takeout

2881 Clark Rd

Reviews:
I haven't had many impressive moments when it comes to Chinese food, but I was delightfully surprised tonight. My parents have ordered take-out from this restaurant while they've been living here and have yet to be disappointed. We arrived not even 10 minutes after calling and maybe waited 2 minutes until we were given a big smile and a bag of hot food. Everything was correct with the order, which is mandatory of course, and they were intentional to pack the bag in a way to prevent spilling. I was also pleased with how clean the restaurant and the contents of my order were. My only regret is having to reheat the food, it was so tasty while it was fresh! We fed 4 adults with leftovers for not even 40$. I Just moved down from virginia and I'm already comfortably adjusting ;)

New York Chinese

5010 Clark Rd

Reviews:
My wife and I love New York Chinese. Delivery is fast which is great for last minute meals or laziness. Anyone we have ordered with loves it and now drives across town to pick it up. It's all good, but my favorite is the Mongolian beef as spicy as they can make it. Delicious food at good prices at your doorstep, what more can you ask for?

Reviews:
Great smoothies, coffee, juice. Inside the HUB building, easy parking. Kelly took great care of us, customizing our smoothies. Delicious made to order croissant. Highly recommended for detox or a regular breakfast sandwich.
This place is my go to in downtown Sarasota. They have quick, healthy options while on the go. My favorites are egg, bacon and avocado breakfast wrap on a gluten free wrap and caprese panini. Delicious!
I love StartUp cafe! It has awesome food, awesome smoothies, and awesome people! I highly recommend it!!

Reviews:
Old Heidelberg did the cake for my wedding (Nov 10) and they did an amazing job. They were very easy to work with and at our tasting appointment had lots of samples for us. We decided on chocolate cake with raspberry filling. Perfect balance of moistness and flavor. Wasn't one of those heavy, overly rich cakes. Perfectly decorated as well. The top layer was as equally delicious one year later!

Big Kahuna Philly Steak Sandwich is awesome. Good service; prompt, polite, and professional.
Had a delicious sub today! At first I wasn't sure what to order. Too many options. With a little help from staff I went with a #13. Nice place to sit and chill. Clean and friendly people who work there. Definitely a place I'd go back to.

Stricklands Resturant

Reviews:
--- Short Synopsis --- My favorite ice cream store! This place is amazing!! The ice cream is borderline addicting! How can it not have any reviews?! Definitely try their ice cream and their ice cream related goods!! Be warned, they do have a limited selec
Stricklands is truley amazing, the ice cream is out of this world, and they have great food. I got a Ruben sandwich and it was fantastic, great service and very clean
What a true hidden gem! You must venture out for the ice cream here...the best in Sarasota and beyond! Without a doubt, hands down, an awesome and unexpected ice cream experience...creamy delicious and made fresh every day on-site. Always chocolate and vanilla, with other flavors changing every few days. Bill and Emily the local owners are first class folks...and their following goes well beyond the local community. People drive up from Naples, and down from Orlando with coolers to stock up! Their lunch specials can't be beat, with prices you will love, thus you will find them as a restaurant and not only an ice cream rendezvous. Stricklands originated in the Midwest...but they are now a winning sweet spot in Florida. Give them a try!

The Skinny Dip Frozen Yogurt bar

8415 S Tamiami Trl
Sarasota, 34238
Reviews:
A better alternative frozen yogurt bar than Orangeleaf. Found the yogurt to be better tasting and the overall cost per ounce to be less There are 10 frozen yogurt flavors to choose from and the menu changed every 2 days. We tried the salted caramel pretzel, strawberry, west coast tart, and key lime. They were all very good with the salted caramel probably being the best. Also had vegan and low fat selections. In addition to the ten flavors, you also have over 70 toppings to choose from The female staffer manning the store was exceptionally friendly, helpful, informative and engaging. Great customer service. Some of the best we have ever encountered. Great place to get a frozen treat on a hot day Oh, and they even have "doggie dippers" for your canine friends to enjoy.
yeah, sarasota has its own skinny dip! try the cool flavors with homemade whipped cream!!
The staff are very helpful and nice. The tables and spaces are really clean. The froyo is the best I've had not to mention healthy as well. Great selection of toppings...A must go for froyo!!!!!
