Lines for meals stretch well beyond the hostess podium here. Pies—key lime, egg custard, banana cream, peanut butter, strawberry rhubarb, and others—are the main event at this family restaurant in the heart of Sarasota's Amish community. Daily specials typically include zesty goulash, chicken and dumplings, and pulled smoked pork. For breakfast, choose from French toast stuffed with cream cheese or perhaps a hearty stack of pancakes. Sandwiches include Manhattans (roast
beef, turkey, or meat loaf on homemade bread with mashed potatoes and gravy). The entire village is always crowded, but there's plenty of waitstaff who keep tables clean and cleared, so the flow is steady. The decor retains its Old Florida efficiency appearance.
