Heart-y Welcome!

Welcome to Theresa's Restaurant, downtown Bradenton. Don't you love the heart eyes?
Linking to Random Hearts because today the "eyes have it" for HEARTS and because Diane and I Heart Theresa's.
Reflections while Looking in the window above and inside view from that window.
 and the back corner which is where Diane and I headed on the day after Christmas for our Holiday Breakfast. Can you believe I forgot to take a photo of my omelet? .

 Question is: when you eat out with a friend, do you choose the place by
A. Food
B. Price
C. Ambiance or Character of the place.
C. is my answer. Diane and I choose Theresa's because we love the look, the feeling, the Quaint Old Feel, and lucky for us the food is as good as the look.

That is the cutest little welcome sign/plant stand I have ever seen. I do love those eyes.

Ambiance is always at the top of my list but the food has to be good too. It looks like Theresa's has it all.

You have some of the neatest places to visit. I like the way they painted the walls. I like to choose a place with great food and atmosphere.

WOW< that place looks wonderful. I would go there just for the looks.

Looks like a great place but I am sad that I don't get to see what your omelet looked like. I like the ambiance of places, too. Something you don't often get in the chain places.

Looks like you were welcomed at this beautiful quaint place....

TexWisGirl said...

i choose by food first, then ambiance.

Great shots and it looks like a darling place! Very relaxing just looking at the photos.

DawnTreader said...

Looks like a very nice place! I don't go out all that often and if I go out with a friend I prefer a place with a nice atmosphere and not too noisy so I guess I'd say C as well.

Your post makes me want to go to Teresa's again. I haven't been there in a while. It looks like it's been spruced up a bit.

Sandra, the auto train doesn't make stops between Sanford and Lorton, Virginia. It was quite a pleasant trip, however, and I loved having my car with me instead of renting one or having to depend on someone.

Val said...

Looks like a yummy place to eat and enjoy a wonderful time with a friend. It seems Florida has a lot of these cute places.

MedaM said...

It is a lovely and creative welcome in front of the door of that really charming and inviting restaurant. I too choose „c“, of course.
Thank you Sandra for your always nice and friendly comments on my blog.

Of COURSE you know I'd love it there - those heart eyes on the adorable welcome sign would draw me right in!!!

As for the question ...
A. - yes
B. - yes
C. - yes - though not so much, because when I'm with friends, we make our OWN ambiance - if necessary!!! :=}

Snapper II said...

I choose A, B & C. Since you usually cannot get all three, then you do the best you can.
Good post. Love you, Madeline

Inger-M said...

So cute eye hearts!

Ann said...

What a cute welcome sign that is. Looks like a nice place too.
You need one more choice for your question.
I choose D)wherever the kids gave us a gift card to

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great looking restaurant, Sandra... We choose restaurants primarily for the FOOD... BUT--I like the ambiance also--especially if I am meeting a friend.

Love the heart eyes.
Hugs,
Betsy

I need to get out more. Gotta get back to friends that I left cause I was not up to it.

Rose said...

It can be a either or on choice..and sometimes it is simply a matter of what is available. But I will tell you this, I love the looks of this place.

Deb said...

MarieElizabeth said...

Looks like a fabulous place for a good time with friends. Adorable heart cheeks too.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Hi Sandra, wondering how far Theresa's is from your home as i have a friend who lives in Bradenton. I've never visited her there, but if I ever get to FL we should meet for lunch here. I choose a place by food quality and ambiance.

George said...

This looks like a great place to meet a friend for conversation and a good meal. And yes, I do like those heart-shaped eyes.

LC said...

Friends Holiday breakfast, what a great tradition for beginning a new year! Enjoyed your visit to Theresa's and the Rusty Cricket, esp the pink octopus!

Chatty Crone said...
