What a great local spot! Fabulous for weekend brunch or a weekday meal. My new favorite is the benedict pictured below, and it is obvious that everything is made to order. Absolutely delicious. Plus don't forget the amazing service!

Just ate here for the first time and it was amazing! Not sure how I didn’t know about this place before. Staff was friendly and attentive. Food was fresh and tasty. I’ll be back for sure.

Great food and great service. Everyone ordered something different for breakfast and everyone was very happy. The toast with avocado and hummus was to die for. Would definitely come back here again.

My son and I walked in we’re not acknowledged by the 2 employees behind the counter, I stood there for about a min maybe 2 while the 2 ladies discussed mixing spoons and another 3 people walked in and sat at a table. As the owner skated past me she said I’ll be right with you .i asked do we seat ourselves she asked how many ,I said 2 she looked around said I don’t have any tables .. she did , outside. I said we will sit outside. Ok, she came out and I was ready to order so I started asking questions about the kids menu ... she said I have other tables .. I sat there honestly in disbelief and started to google reviews on the place. Then she asked if I was still going to be eating bc there was another couple with a child waiting to sit down . I assume this is why she asked me. Never ever underestimate the people who walk into your establishment. She seen a woman and kid , I can’t say for sure but I got the general feeling they didn’t have time for me or my son. Poor taste to then ask me to leave bc I said I felt she was being rude!! How about take some constructive feedback... I didn’t get to eat or order because she said this is my restaurant leave .. but I will never be back and I wouldn’t recommend to anyone who likes to have an enjoyable dining experience. I’d give it no stars if I could.

I absolutely enjoyed every moment at the UPTOWN EATERY. The BEST CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP IN THE WORLD, PERFECT AND DELICIOUS AND LOTS OF FOOD IN IT! I came back for BREAKFAST the next morning and got a FANTASTIC CHEESY OMELET, served with 2 thick high grade DELICIOUS STRIPS OF BACON, AND THE FRESHEST FRUIT MIX AND FANTASTIC WHEAT TOAST I HAVE EVER HAD. I also must mention the Chefs, the waitress and all the people that work there made me feel at home, even though I'm from another state. IF I COULD GIVE THIS PLACE MORE THAN 5 OUT OF 5 STARS I WOULD, THE ATMOSPHERE, THE PEOPLE, THE FOOD, THE MENU, THE SERVICE WITH A GENIUNE APPRECIATIVE SMILE, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!!!

Came here for a quick lunch again. Super friendly waitress and affordable prices. I don't like how they never have chicken noodle soup even though it is on their menu. Also they don't have any wrap except for the plain one. I wish they had whole wheat or another type of wrap.

Rude service. I visit Sarasota often. I’ll never go back.

One of the best breakfast meals I've ever had. I got the breakfast sandwich with the hashbrown casserole and everything was cooked to absolute perfection. The proportions were also spot on unlike so many breakfast joints that pride themselves on giving you a huge meal that can't be finished. The prices are super affordable, I got the breakfast sandwich and OJ for less than $12, just amazing. I simply couldn't recommend this place enough!

Absolutely enjoyed our breakfast for two days while visiting Sarasota for a wedding. The owner and staff are so pleasant and the food exceptional. We especially enjoyed the banana nut pancakes! Go see for yourselves.....

I believe this place is family owned. The food is always delicious. The restaurant is always very clean.
