Rocky Bluff Library US 301 in Ellenton

Unique building looks like a castle surrounded by ponds. Pleasant helpful lady takes me to computers on back wall, which has long line of framed drawings.

At the entrance there’s a vestibule with couch and easy chair surrounded by historic documents and photos.

About a mile east of I-75 on US 301. The Ellenton Cafe is across the street

Ellenton Cafe US301 by I-75 at Ellenton Fl

First time here for lunch a few days ago. Welcoming family restaurant with high-density seating in this small space, tables quite close together.

After being told to sit anywhere I found one empty table in the middle. Ordered a tuna sandwich with cole slaw, which arrived in a few minutes. Quite tasty and loaded with lettuce and tomato for $ 5.99.

Popular place with the locals at the corner of a strip mall with several other tenants.  Clientele overflowed to the three outdoor tables.

Everyone seemed happy and smiling here, both staff and customers. Several folksy works of art adorn walls. Will drop in for breakfast another time.

Came in for a late breakfast yesterday, parking lot packed so expected a long wait. To my surprise, the kind greeter had a booth available in front of TV. Gracious pleasant Hispanic waitress took my order, the four-buck slam.

Two reasonable pancakes, two scrambled eggs and two sausage links was done right. Do you want more lemonade? No thanks, one big glass was enough. Above and beyond service on a busy morning, they get a medal.

Just east of I-75 at the County Road 674 Sun City Center Boulevard exit in a restaurant compound shared with Bob Evans, Wendy’s and Popeye’s Chicken.
