May01_MothersDayBrunch

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and you need to step up your game this year when it comes to taking mom out for breakfast. Blu’ Island Bistro (Venice, FL) has been known to be a local favorite among moms. This Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 10th treat your mom to a Free Mimosa and a fantastic breakfast with the freshest local ingredients.

Blu’ Island Bistro (Venice, FL) is mom’s favorite for local, unique dining on the Island of Venice.

"Top Notch Gourmet Breakfast" "This place is serious about food AND service, and it shows! My husband had the breakfast with the fantastic scrapple. I had the BLT with fried egg, which I loved. Every component of the sandwich was made with care and went so well together. Best breakfast sandwich ever! We also had the hash browns and shared a couple of blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup. Yes, we ate too much, but it's not everywhere you can get food like this. Unfortunately.

The hostess and our waitress were very friendly and efficient. We'll be back for sure!” ljk73, Annapolis, Maryland, TripAdvisor Review, April 26, 2015. (Source: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g34705-d2460312-r268198283-Blu_Island_Bistro-Venice_Florida.html#CHECK_RATES_CONT)

Read what a recent TripAdvisor reviewer had to say about their experience at Blu’: "On a recent visit to Manasota Key, we made a short trek over to Venice to check out the Blu' Island Bistro and we are glad that we did! We were there for breakfast and it was a great experience. My wife has ordered Eggs Benedict in restaurants all over the U.S. and beyond and she swears that Blu' Island has the best Eggs Benedict that she has ever had. I opted for an omelet and it was also perfectly done - not too watery, not too thick...just right. The pecan-smoked bacon was really good, as well. The atmosphere is comfortable and a bit funky and the staff is genuinely happy and helpful. We are so glad that we stopped by and we highly recommend Blu' Island Bistro!"

Breakfast Served All Day at Blu’ Island Bistro!

Venice Breakfast

Blu’ Island Bistro offers breakfast served all day Tuesday - Sunday 7:30am - 3:00pm. Hungry for breakfast? Great! We have some unique local breakfast options we know you will love.

Read a few recent breakfast reviews from TripAdvisor.

"This is the best kept secret in Venice! The food is unusual and remarkable. I had breakfast there everyday and found it delicious and affordable. I read the dinner menu and talked with the chef and wish I could have had dinner there but my other plans precluded doing so. The staff is very pleasant and informative. You MUST visit this restaurant if in Venice. It is off the beaten path for restaurants and is small but you will thoroughly enjoy your experience. I would return to Venice just to have dinner there!" Visited February 2015. Dan C in Northville, Michigan.

“Great Breakfast!” "I had the shrimp omelette special and my wife had banana French toast this morning. Our waitress was attentive and accommodating and kept my cup filled with perfectly brewed coffee. We're looking forward to returning tomorrow morning to try other treats on the menu. Try the chef's personal brand of hot sauce on your eggs. So much more flavor than Tabasco.” Visited February 2015. Jim M, Stony Lake.

“Consistent Breakfast @ Blu's!!! BEST in Venice & I'm a foodie :)” "Always a favorite for us. We are sun-birds from PA. & we love that Chef Alan has a connection to Philadelphia. I love their Eggs Benedict w/Canadian Bacon & the Hollaindaise sauce is always generous & dreamy-creamy. I do wish however that they could try Thomas' English Muffins vs their current in-house choice. The Thomas' nooks & crannies are not as dense as their current & would hug the hollaindaise. My husbands buttermilk pancakes were perfect as was the very "fresh" fruit. Oh BTW try the potato-cake... a roundish tasty mixture of grated potatoes, onions/scallions/herbs - a little kick - delicious. Well be back!” Visited February 2015.

Lunch with Chef Judi at Blu’ Island Bistro!

b2ap3_thumbnail_10270436_750972981603527_1271301902606550163_n.jpg
We went LIVE with Chef Judy and ABC News 7 Sarasota! What a great time! Read their take on Blu’ Island Bistro (Venice FL) below: "Just blocks from the beach on S. Tamiami Trail in Venice, this shabby chic beachy theme is quite unique. A Culinary Institute of America graduate, Chef Alan plays with his menu, like offerings such as Philly pork rolls and chicken parmesan burgers. Friday and Saturday nights, dinner is served -- and expect the unexpected, like elk and ostrich with white truffle oil. Chef Alan's mom makes the homemade desserts.” Posted in Chef judi, Local on Friday, April 25, 2014 11:32 am.
