Siesta Key/Sarasota Area

Have to give a shout out to http://www.islandgfbakery.com/, they had a wide variety of stuff for my vacation.  I tried the muffins and cookies. The chocolate chip muffins were to die for, so moist!  I received a list of places to eat too in the area.

I tried Dutch Valley Restaurant for a Father's Day breakfast, the waitress wasnt familiar with my diet, but they had a whole menu, another gal came to help.  I had eggs, potatoes, and cinnamon raisin toast.  Then took a few muffins to go for my long ride home.  Delicious!


I also tried Beckham's Osprey Grill for dinner one night, a little bit of a drive, in a small strip mall, very quiet and cute.  (Too bad my toddler didnt think so. ) When I finally did get  to order I decided to try a chicken alfredo dish with bacon and cheese sauce .    Very tasty, nice large portion, loved the bacon in it, I normally dont eat foods this rich, but nice to indulge once in a while.  They also carry gluten free buns I believe i you would like a burger or chicken breast.


I also tried the Boat House one night, thanks to my sil for watching the kiddos! They did not have a menu, but I ordered a plain chicken breast with lettuce and tomato, and got a salad, a nice meal. It was right on the water, there was a patio, but a wedding out there, so we sat in a 'indoor' type of patio seating, nice entertainment. 

Another place on the list was Cosimos Brick Oven Pizza, I didnt get to try that.



  1. My family was recently in Siesta also and another pizza place listed on the Gluten Free Bakery site was Ricos and we ate there. The GF pizza was individual size but about the size of what I would label a medium size pizza. Very good!

  2. Thanks! Cant wait to try it next time
