For nearly two decades, 1st Street Cafe & Catering has served up buffet and sit-down style meals for parties around Manatee and Sarasota County. Its physical location has a café that dishes out classic American breakfasts and lunches.
During the morning hours, diners dig into a Lucky Seven breakfast sandwich stuffed with fried eggs and sausage or a country-fried steak smothered in gravy. During lunch, they tear into grilled-steak and pork-tenderloin sandwiches and juicy burgers. One such option, the Challenger double burger, allows patrons to stuff their mouths with 12 ounces of burger meat, crispy bacon, and slices of cheese, and to get at least 1.5 high-fives from nearby diners when it’s all gone.
At Verry Berry, a self-serve frozen yogurt shop, customers fill 16-ounce cups with endless combinations of frozen yogurt and toppings.

After creating a frozen yogurt base, guests can load up on toppings such as kiwi slices, Twix pieces, and graham cracker crumbs. Verry Berry also offers many flavors of Hawaiian shaved ice culled from the beard of a Herodotus ice sculpture.
