A Cornucopia of earthly delights await you at the Bijou Cafe this fall!

The Bijou Cafe's Thanksgiving menu is featured below and we urge you to make your reservations for this treasured Sarasota family tradition as soon as possible.

Located in the Theatre and Arts District of downtown Sarasota, the Bijou Cafe has been a treasured staple of the Sarasota restaurant scene since its opening in 1986. Diners appreciate the award-winning wine list, outstanding service, and eclectic menu. The menu is inspired by the French and South African heritage of owner Jean-Pierre Knaggs and elevated by an inventive passion for using local ingredients and sustainable seafood. The signature wine list has always been admired for its broad selection of global choices as well as our fair and reasonable prices. 

We have much to be grateful for. We hope you will join us in celebrating this season of Thanksgiving at the Bijou Cafe

Owners, Jean-Pierre and Shay
