Village Cafe

Fantastic Breakfast - try the breakfast burrito. Their salsa is amazing. They were extremely friendly toward dog people. You sit at the sidewalk tables, and they even bring you hand sanitizer and a bowl of water for the pooch. They do require that the dog not be tall enough that his head is above table level when standing on all fours, so I guess it wouldn't work out for very large dogs, but for our mid-size it was great. We ate breakfast there everyday while we were at Siesta Key. Highly recommended!
