We've been coming here for years as we work downtown. The staff is super nice and the food is always really fresh. No matter how many 'trendy' spots open up downtown, Maxs' is still our favorite and our 'go-to' lunch spot.

What a shame that those folks would not have taken the time try out this little gem. Albeit - the sandwich shop is in an old building with old furnishings and certainly hanging on the fringes of an area of town that is not in the ritzy section. But, don't mistake these things for the place being "dirty". It is... More

Although this is a very busy little hidden gem, the salads, sandwiches and soups are the freshest in town!! V reasonable prices too! I had the Blueberry Walnut Salad. Delish. Home made dressings.

I have been eating their food for over 5 years. They are absolutely delicious meals. I have gotten better meals there than some of the high end places here in Sarasota. The salads are truly the best. Their Marilyn crab bisque is to die for. And a red curry salmon dish that is to die for. Everything is so fresh.... More

Happening lunch spot. Mainly a take out joint. Boar's Head meats. Lot's of people waiting in narrow hall way for lunch to go. Gads of to-go orders coming in on the phone. A small seating area in the back. Order in and they'll deliver to your table. Had a Cuban sandwich and a Turkey Reuben. Both really good. Interesting pasta... More

First time here and I'm impressed! I ordered a salad with no meat since I'm vegetarian. Immediately I was advised that they would add more cheese, nuts and fresh fruit to my salad! Try this place-you'll love it!

This place was recommended by a co-worker and I am glad that I went. If you are not a local, you probably will not hear about this place, even some of the locals have never been.

Great place! Food was fresh and made to order, price is right! So glad to find this! Appearance is a little off putting but definitely do not let that stop you!

We were visiting for just a couple days in Sarasota, and were running late to get lunch. It was raining, so I didn't care so much about finding a place with a beachy vibe. A search on Google maps for "sandwiches" found me this place. Seeing they also had salads, made a quick decision to eat here since we were... More

My spouse and I were looking for a local establishment to have lunch and of course use TripAdvisor. We actually drove past Maximillians Cafe - thinking it was closed until we saw someone actually enter. Still wondering what was the previous life of this establishment (Laundry room maybe?). Anyway - enter thru a hallway which has the cashier window in... More
