about

We are a contemporary cosmopolitan restaurant in the heart of the Sarasota downtown historic and arts district. We specialize in serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with world-view menus enhanced by a carefully selected cellar of food-friendly international wines. Guests dine inside or under shade on the street-side patio while they savor the lively ambience of Sarasota’s historic Five Points and the city’s arts district.

Our guests enjoy breakfast and lunch in a casual and lively American-European atmosphere of a city cafe. You sit down to white marble-top tables and can watch your international coffees being brewed and prepared at a bar. Guests may also dine street-side under red umbrellas on our wide and covered patio. Read the paper, meet friends, stay and chat. We are all about great food enjoyed in a relaxed and unhurried atmosphere.

At night the mood changes slightly and we become a bit more formal with white tablecloths and cloth napkins. There’s music, low light and the glow of a crystal chandelier. Gauze drapes create intimacy and an ambience that is casually chic inside. Outside on the patio, enjoy the moonlight and the sounds of urban life in this world-famous beach resort city. Linger to enjoy international wines that may be new to you and an array of Mediterranean dishes both classic and contemporary with signature flourishes that are unique to Cafe´ Americano.
