The cutest little spot on Longboat Key might just be Whitney's. What was once a service station is now a cool, aesthetically pleasing bodega & bar.
I highly suggest visiting.
Cocktails, Coffee, & Cuisine
Whitney's is open Tuesday - Sunday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (closed Mondays). They also have happy hour daily from 3pm - 5pm.
The entire environment and setup of this business, from the exterior to the interior, is absolutely adorable. This is a great place to go for a delicious iced coffee or a refreshing frosé (frozen rosé ), and sit and enjoy some live music or the cozy firepit area.
When it comes to food, here is what you can expect to find on the menus. During brunch they serve dishes such as Tuna Tartare, Surfer Egg & Avocado Bowl, Local Fish Sandwich, and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. The dinner menu features options like East Coast Oysters, Charred Octopus, Pesto Pasta, and the Mahi Tacos to name a few. There are many fantastic/yummy options on both menus!
If you find yourself on Longboat Key, make sure you stop by Whitney's. Its worth it!
