A very dear friend is celebrating her birthday and so I thought I would treat her to this charming restaurant where she had never been. Chef Tony impressed her with bringing over some of his home-made soup samples. Today we had Chili, Conch Chowder and Mushroom Bisque. All excellent!!!! Of course, I ordered my favorite sandwich...the CUBAN. which honestly cannot... More

Enjoyed a delicious lunch here. With a bit of hesitation, I ordered the Cuban sandwich on the recommendation of my friends. I wasn't sure I would enjoy the sandwich from the description but I was so pleasantly surprised. The combination of flavors was perfect. The bread was tasty and not doughy at all. I ordered sweet potato fries to go... More

Thank you so much for your kind review! I'm so glad that you ventured out of your comfort zone and gave the Cuban sandwich a try. All of those flavors come together to create an entirely different flavor. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Come back and give us a try for breakfast! More

Small little cafe located at the airport. Staff not overly friendly, but ok. Maybe it wasn't a good day.... Seems to have quite a variety on menu. Give it a try

This place is right in the small Venice airport so you overlook the planes. Smaller space but great breakfast! Good sized portions and great seasoning on the food!

A great restaurant at the historic Venice Army Airbase, now Venice Airport. Open for Breakfast and Lunch, the food is always great. Fast service and entertaining cooks. Had the St.Lucian, pot roast, eggs,veggies, cheese, tortilla and a side of plantains! Nice to see the WWII warbirds display as a bonus. A fun restaurant when you visit the area.

When we arrived for BREAKFAST the first visit, I saw Conch Chowder and Curried Goat as lunch specials. Chef Tony fixed them both for me as breakfast food!! (Bless him!) Have also tried the oxtails--delicious! I have visited with friends who have... More

We have been for lunch. Each time is delightful. Great food in a friendly atmosphere. It is obvious that many eat there repeatedly. The best couch soup! We would recommend highly.

Thank you for the kind review, Carol! Chef Tony makes that conch chowder fresh from scratch! That's why it's so good! ;) Come see us again soon and try the chili. Maybe we can try to earn that extra star! More

I had the special of the day, Caribbean curry goat with plantain and yucca. Very tasty. My wife had a ruben sandwich, with thick hand carved corned beef. Also excellent. The restaurant is inside the Suncoast Aviation center. While eating we watched planess landing.

I've been driving by the restaurant abd finally decided to try it out. The food is fantastic. The staff is friendly. It took quite a while for our breakfast to be served. It was worth the wait.
