Ginny's and Jane E's Bakery

Located in the Historic City of Anna Maria, a quaint "Old Florida" area on the north end of Anna Maria Island, Ginny's & Jane E's Bakery is a charming bakery and cafe located within a unique Island Coastal antiques shop.  Ginny's & Jane E's offers their own blend of full-bodied French Roast, flavored coffees and rich espresso drinks served hot, over ice or frapped. Fresh fruit smoothies and juices are also Island favorites. Known to Anna Maria locals and travelers alike as a convenient and fun gathering spot just steps from the beach.

Bakers continue baking throughout the morning and the cafe staff prepares breakfast and lunch selections as ordered.  Even in the hustle and bustle of this Sunday morning, one can tell they care about their reputation among  patrons and friends, as each customer was greeted with a warm smile and orders were quickly prepared behind the counter.  There were many fresh baked cakes, pies and pastries to choose from as well as freshly brewed coffees and tea.  We chose to share one of the real fruit smoothies - the South Pacific - made with coconut, banana, and pineapple.  The smoothie was good - reminiscent of a pina colada.

We also each got an egg sandwich on an everything bagel.  While there are several seats available inside, as well as a few sidewalk cafe tables outside, we got our order to go so we could have more beach time. They were slammed and the wait was about 30 minutes - but that is probably since many other places were closed on Sunday morning. I didn't mind the wait so much, as I was able to look around and all the eccentric items.  Keith noticed a lot of microwaving went on - but the eggs were fluffy and I liked the chewy and toasted bagel.  As we were leaving, I overheard many customers comment how they too enjoyed their breakfast.  If looking for a quick snack before heading to the beach, check out Ginny's and Jane E's Bakery and Cafe.
