It is not everyday a reality television show calls to rent your vacation home! TLC's Breaking Amish: A Brave New World was filmed at Bentley Street this past February. If you are a fan of the show come and stay at our vacation home!!
On 8/21/1013 we ate breakfast at Yoder's Restaurant and Amish Village on 3434 Bahia Vista Street in Sarasota, Florida. The restaurant had a great Amish atmosphere and all of the staff were very kind and helpful. We both got the apple fritter french toast. It comes in one slice or two, come hungry. The french toast is pictured below it is a huge portion and comes with cinnamon apples. It was delicious! We highly recommend this breakfast item to anyone who visits Yoder's Restaurant. You can also get real maple syrup for a little extra and it comes in a small glass jar which you can take as a souvenir. We tried it and it was delicious! After breakfast we walked around to the other shops Yoder's had to offer. The gift shop featured Siesta Key and Sarasota souvenirs along with Amish gifts and handcrafted items. They also had a fruit and vegetable market where they sold a very wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, sauces, syrups, meats, cheeses, butters and dry mixes. If you are from Pennsylvania, they had a variety of common Pa brands showcased at the market. Next to the market they had a deli which had a variety of sandwiches, meats, cheeses, salads, pre-packaged candies, chips, baked goods, sauces, pretzels and more. This is definitaly a place worth checking out. You can find menus and Yoder's information in the kitchen drawer at Bentley Street.
I consider Sarasota and Siesta Key to be one of my own personal favorite paradises, with the number one beach in America and great sunny weather. What contributes more to this special paradise is a very unexpected place to most, a restaurant, Yoder's Amish Village. Not only is it a highly recommendable restaurant for every meal, but it was also featured on TV's Man vs. Food. People are drawn to their well known line of Amish homemade cream pies which are laced with chocolate, peanut butter, and various fruit flavors. Main meals are prepared in a delightfully Amish manner including pressure cooked chicken and grilled oatmeal for breakfast, which is not to be forgotten. Starting your day with breakfast from here is wise! The friendly staff and nice atmosphere make this restaurant a family friendly place and I am sure they would even be willing to offer up any sort of baking tips you might be interested in.
Apart from the restaurant, the quaint complex is populated with a Fresh Produce Market and Deli Market, which is also Amish owned and operated. For those that wish to take an ever lasting piece of their experience with them, other than the scrumptiously tasty memories of each and every meal, there is also a Gift Shop where those more tangible items can be acquired.
