Usually the views from the Suncoast Cafe are enough to keep your attention--it is after all right on the tarmac of the Venice Airport, and the corporate jets load and refuel just out front. Millions of dollars of aircraft surround the building and as I say--there's lots to see,
But on Sunday we got there with the 9:30 church crowd, and so the only seats for my wife and me were at the counter--which divides the kitchen from the dining room. Our view was a ballet of waitresses and cooks making the breakfasts and handling the "special" orders. Between us, my wife and I have probably worked in a dozen restaurants, although most of that was while we were in college until recently when we started volunteering as cooks at a Coast Guard station and also our local church.
But compared with the professional routines we watched that morning, we still have tons to learn. I can honestly say we were impressed, and happy with our food. If you have a grandkid to impress, this is a great spot--show him or her the jet planes--but check out the routine in the kitchen, the food is good and it's worth your attention to see how it's made.
