SARASOTA DINING

Meet Me At The Cortez Cafe

Not much has changed at the Cortez Cafe since the seventies when fishermen in the sleepy village of Cortez would gather to swap stories and gossip over a hearty breakfast and a bottomless cup of coffee before heading offshore. In 2002, owners Sam and Debi Varelis left their respective careers in wholesale produce sales and real estate to carry on the tradition of Cortez’s community gathering place.  In 2003, they expanded into the hair salon next door, nearly doubling the size of the size of the restaurant.
