Weekend Cooking- The Breakfast House in Sarasota

On our way to spend the morning at the Red Barn Flea Market in Bradenton, my sister-in-law and I stopped at the Breakfast House in Sarasota to fuel up for the day. My husband had eaten there with two friends and he thought his sister would love it.

The Breakfast House is located in a cute little house. The first thing you see when you get to the porch is the collection of jewel-colored rocking chairs. They are so charming and you just want to sit down and set a spell while you're waiting to be seated.

We got there at just the right time because we were ushered right away into the adorable sunny dining room area. There are three different seating areas, all with white tables surrounded by brightly colored chairs. The walls are covered with cheery paintings of flowers that finish the ambiance.

Each table has it's own decoration to match the chair colors. My sister-in-law loves the color purple (just like Prince, may he rest in peace), so we chose the purple table. It had a ceramic duck head, grape salt and pepper shakers and a purple vase.

The Breakfast House is known for their pancakes and we both ordered the daily special- Raspberry White Chocolate Pancakes. You get three huge pancakes in an order (we could have easily shared), and they were as delicious as they were pretty.

The place started to fill up as we were leaving, so we boxed up our leftovers and headed to meet our friend at the Red Barn. It was the perfect start to a terrific day and I recommend a visit to the Breakfast House if you ever find yourself in Sarasota; it's just darling.


  1. Sounds like a place I'd enjoy, so if we're ever out Sarasota way, will give it a try.

  2. Oh I love the atmosphere! So pretty and fresh and summary -- I agree that the porch looks very inviting. And that pancake? Yes, I'd like two or three, please.

  3. What an adorable little restaurant! I almost want to book a trip to Sarasota just to eat here :)

  4. Looks beautiful! I never get to Florida these days, but it looks like it's worth a trip just to have breakfast there. You should compile your restaurant recommendations into a travel guide for book bloggers!

  5. Oh I so enjoy places like this-they are quaint and darling and like being at a friend's home.

  6. Those pancakes look great!

  7. What a pretty place. Now I want those duck head salt and pepper shakers, my grandmother used to collect shakers and now I seem to have a penchant for them.
    The pancakes look good. I am a pancake person, my husband preferring waffles, and these good grand

  8. What a cheery place to start your day! Those pancakes look wonderful!
