Each morning, Word of Mouth Downtown greets the sun with a breakfast of homespun comfort food. Everything from homemade corned-beef hash with sliced tomatoes and eggs to buttermilk pancakes topped with fruit, nuts, or chocolate chips joins a mountain of freshly baked scones and croissants. "Go for the muffin and order it grilled," recommends Sarasota Magazine. "Sounds odd, tastes delicious."
When lunch rolls around, orders shift away from omelets and coffee to soups, salads, and sandwiches. BLTs appear alongside specialty snacks such as a Cuban-style panini and the 8-ounce WOM burger. The best setting to enjoy these bites if you're a dog owner? On the canine-friendly patio, where dogs can munch on a handful of treats, drink a bowl of ice-cold water, and wear a napkin folded up to look like a little hat.
