More Color Fun

Definitely a day brightener on a rainy morning, The Breakfast Cottage is our latest Florida find. We came upon it along the Tamiami Trail where we believed Above Board, a "silent sports" store for paddle boards and kayaks would be. Turns out, the breakfast cottage sits on the corner of the block that Above Board occupies.

 


How could we resist?
We didn't.
Nothing beats a place that serves up great food with panache and confident style!
 
Open 7 a.m. - 2 p.m., they serve breakfast all day but soups and sandwiches are an option.
Here's my grilled vegetable and provolone baguette.

By this time of year I am color starved. I know I can always count on you to assuage my starvling state of mind.

I recall a time when I was young and we were taking the paint off all the wood furniture and woodworking. Now it is so pretty to see a nicely painted piece whether chalked or antiqued or just bright. Perfect for those French Provincial chairs in the background. Fun.

How did I miss this??? what a colorful spot to dine, and enjoy some conversation with good people.
Hope all is well, dear Becky.

How fun! Wish I were sitting right across from you, eating that sandwich right now while my stomach is saying "get up and fix lunch, NOW!"

It is fun to see the orange and pink chairs. Reminds me of several restaurants during my college years. (early 70's) And ... your sandwich looks delicious.

Fondly,
Glenda

Hello Becky! I found you via our mutual friend, Tammy, who suggested I visit as we are considering a winter home in venice.

I've enjoyed perusing your lovely blog.I was especially drawn to this post as we were in Venice this February and stumbled upon The Breakfast Cottage. Loved it!

I see you are selling your home. May I ask where you were exactly? Any tips or advice you can pass along would be most welcome!!

Best of luck to you!

Hi Doreen,
I tried sending you an email but was denied delivery.
Our house was in Venice Gardens. We closed on it March 7 and drove up north to our home in Des Moines.
Good luck in finding your adventure in Florida!
Becky
