Hello! Do you offer brunch on the weekends?
The dinner last night was special. Thanks
Did i leave credit card.
Marsha I am at your bar where are you?
This place is amazing. A real gem. Fresh ingredients is an understatement. An explosion of flavors!! They don’t have cooks, they have chefs A lot of pride here
Do you guys have lobster rolls tonight?
It was nice to be back on Friday for lunch!
I encourage Bradenton folks to support the Central Cafe team. I grabbed some fantastic carry-out tonight that was not only really, really good, but also a great value. #shoplocal #centralcafe
Shepherds Pie was excellent! More than enough for 2 people. Highly recommend!!!
What is the to-go for tomorrow, Friday, March 20?
Thank you for another delicious meal last night! #vipfishspread 😍
