Cheddar's on Suncoast

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen

Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen
12280 Cortez Blvd., Brooksville, FL 34613

The Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen in Brooksville, Florida, is all about good food, made well, for a good price. How do we pull that off? By cooking from scratch. That’s our secret ingredient, and it makes for great-tasting food at an even better value. What does that mean exactly for the people of Brooksville? That means Santa Fe Spinach Dip or Cheddar’s Cheese Fries after a bike ride on the Good Neighbor Trailhead. It means huge Painkiller cocktails (the limit is 2 per person for a reason!) to celebrate the end of a long work week. It’s warm, made-in-house Honey Butter Croissants and hand-breaded Chicken Tenders piled high that are perfect for sharing.

Hours: Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.; Friday/Saturday, 11 a.m. – 11 p.m.

Beck Lane’s commemorative Frida Kahlo exhibit has been extended through August 18th at the Unitarian Universalist Church’s Lexow Wing Gallery located at 3975 Fruitville Road. The public is invited this Sunday, July 16 to view the first installment of the portfolio and see Beck painting one of her 55 Frida Kahlo portraits live between the hours of 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM.

Mexican painter Frida Kahlo is considered by many to be an icon for her feminist beliefs, her authenticity, her political activism, her defying of gender stereotypes, and her courage and strength to not be limited by life’s challenges. During her short life, Frida painted 55 self-portraits. Artist Beck Lane has chosen to honor and celebrate this incredible woman by painting her own portraits of Freda Kahlo based upon photographs, documented histories, and written articles about the famous artist.

Hours: Sunday 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., Tuesday through Friday by appointment.
