The Toasted Yolk, a full-service eatery featuring breakfast, lunch and brunch favorites, opened its newest restaurant on Monday, February 6 in Sarasota, Florida. It is the first Toasted Yolk location in the state of Florida.

The new restaurant is at 3750 S Tamiami Trail. It is located at the former site of Irish 31 pub, between Bee Ridge Rd. and Siesta Dr. The building will feature indoor and outdoor seating, including a patio that seats 42 people. The café will be open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The Toasted Yolk serves its unique breakfast and lunch specialties, as well as its boozy brunch cocktails that can be enjoyed at the full-sized bar or on the patio. The menus offer meals that can be savored throughout the day, allowing diners to enjoy egg specialties and coffee in the morning, boozy cocktails and savory pancakes at brunch, and a variety of delicious salads, sandwiches and soups during lunchtime.

The new restaurant is owned by Kelly Milton, the wife of The Toasted Yolk Co-Founder Chris Milton. Kelly got her start in the restaurant industry at age 16 and the couple met years later when she was a restaurant manager. Although Kelly previously left the industry and currently owns a Pilates studio, they both dreamed of opening a restaurant together.

“We have already received a warm response from customers in the area and I think they will love the Toasted Yolk’s made from scratch breakfast, brunch and lunch menu offerings along with our full-service bar,” says Kelly Milton. “As Florida natives, we are excited to bring this unique new concept to the state, especially so close to Chris’ hometown of Bradenton.”

The Toasted Yolk will be an active part of the Sarasota community. Ten percent of the sales from on Friday, February 10 will go toward the Sarasota County Animal Services. Customers will also be able enjoy complimentary mimosas that day as well as enter a raffle for three people to win free breakfast for the year.
