We are huge fans of Station 400 breakfast and brunch, and have been there quite a few times. We prefer the downtown Sarasota location on Lemon Avenue strictly for ambiance, but there is also a location in Lakewood Ranch. Station 400 is one of the places where we order way too much food. How could you not? The prices are super reasonable, and there are far too many delicious options to choose from; we’ve also had excellent servers with awesome recommendations.
For starters, their mimosa menu is fantastic. They offer at least 4 or 5 seasonal flavors. Lauren’s favorite is the “Elderflower, Cucumber, Lemon” mimosa, and Eric prefers the “Blackberry Bramble.” They make the most delicious, right out of the oven, buttery croissants that are served with fresh jam. You MUST get one! We are also big fans of the “Waffled Sausage” starter, which is basically a breakfast sausage waffle corn dog. How could you go wrong?
When we brunch, our go-to game plan is for one of us to order a sweet entree, and one to order a savory entree, to get the best of both worlds. We are not amateurs. Our favorite savory breakfast at Station 400 is the “Truffle Eggs Benedict” (pictured) because, well, truffle. The “Biscuits and Gravy” on jalapeno cheddar biscuits with chorizo gravy is also obviously fantastic.
We’re big into pancakes and keep going back to the same two pancake entrees because we can’t get enough, though the other options sound super scrumptious. We love the “Cinnamon Roll” pancakes with cream cheese frosting and vanilla maple syrup (pictured), as well as the “Bacon & Salted Caramel” pancakes with the salted caramel drizzle and orange butter. Is your mouth watering yet?
