It may surprise you that Amish and Mennonite families charter buses in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and other states to winter in the Pinecraft neighborhood of Sarasota. They have been coming to Sarasota since the 1920s. Despite the heavy traffic on Bahia Vista St. and Beneva Rd. men and women wearing traditional clothing often ride their three wheel bicycles, some with boxes attached behind the seat, to carry things. There are several excellent Amish style restaurants – Yoder's Amish Village and Troyer's Dutch Heritage lead most local's lists, along with Mom's Amish Country Cooking, Der Dutchman, Dutch Haus, Dutch Oven, and out on Cattlemen Rd. Sugar & Spice. All offer wholesome, traditional Amish meals, such as chicken and dumplings, liver and onions and meatloaf. Yoder's 25 varieties of pie includes shoofly, key lime, rhubarb, and many berry and creme pies.
