Founded in 1973 by acclaimed restaurateurs Titus Letschert and Norbert Goldner, Café L’Europe’s name and concept were inspired by the classic ambiance of the popular De L’Europe Hotel in Amsterdam.
Elegantly designed to exude old-world charm, before the restaurant was Café L’Europe, it was the Cocoanut Palms restaurant in the 1950s and became Colombi’s Italian Restaurant later in that decade, and into the 1960s. The building was originally built circa 1926 as the real estate office of one of Sarasota’s most former residents – John Ringling.
