The best of NYC and Paris
Parisienne Inspired Cafe
BLVD Café is a French Inspired Café in downtown Sarasota, Florida. Chef and owner Mica England was a traveling private chef and lived in the Upper West Side of Manhattan for 20 years before opening her own restaurant. BLVD Café strives to create an elegant ambiance to enjoy exquisite dishes, pastries, French champagne and gourmet coffee. Our Bagel dough is shipped from Brooklyn and baked here in Florida. Our pain au chocolat are shipped in from Paris and we bake them in our oven. We have French imported beers and wine as well as NYC style sandwiches, breakfast... and much more.

Chef Mica England
Chef Mica's talent for culinary art has taken her around the world. Chef Mica has been employed by the prominent and well-known. After her last employer had her relocated from Manhattan to Sarasota, and surviving breast cancer, she felt it was time for her to have her own space. She drove past the newly built space that would become her café eight times before finally calling. The Rosemary District has been enriched by the culture of her cuisine since.
