strong coffee on the beach

A typical coffee house with some homemade and some package brands. Prices were approximately the same as Starbucks. It was always open, which was nice. Service was a bit slow.

I stopped at a number of the coffee shops in Capitola during my week long visit, but none of them had a view like this one. First, the Esplanade is a cool place, kind of a semi circle of shops and restaurants, stucco buildings in bright, bold colors with a Mexican feel. When you come down here in the morning,... More

I've spent many a long hour studying anatomy, physics, etc, etc, at Toots. Great choice of coffee drinks, a very sweet view of the beach, yummy homemade desserts! The staff is always very relaxed, friendly and generous. It's my wifi go to spot. A classic gem of a coffeehouse.

My favorite coffee shop in Capitola! It’s next to Paradise Grill, go into a small door and up a flight of stairs. It can be missed easily, but there is a small sign. It’s near the corner of Esplanade Avenue. It’s a small low-key coffee shop, with well worn wooden furnitures and some with brocade-upholstered cushions (which I think add... More

Mr. Toot's has been around for more years then I know. It definately could use a little spiffing up but all that said I guess the wear and tear is what adds to the character of the place. Good Coffee, tea, chi. Good choice of deserts. They have a great Berry pie served with rich thick whip cream. The best... More

Look for the Margaritaville sign (has a big parrot on it) on the outside of the building. The entrance to Mr. Toots is adjacent to the Margaritaville entrance. Once inside the door, you walk up a steep flight of steps to the coffee shop. Taller people need to duck down in order to avoid bumping their heads on the soffit.... More

This cute "stop and take a break": shop UP the top of stairs off downtown Capitola. THE VERY nice staff who will find something for you to enjoy is a MUST. We love ambling around Capitola downtown, sit and gaze at the beach for easy people watch and just linger. the restaurants all over the downtown area will FIT your... More

I have been coming here since 84 and have to say it is the best coffee house anywhere. I love this place and always have. Thank you for all of the memories.

Mr Toots is your extra Den...play some Banana-Grams or Scrabble....chess anyone? Coffe, tea or hot chocolate your senses will be delighted. A small balcony graces the room with a nice view of the ocean. Snacks such as pie, cake or quiche make a nice pairing with e coffee.

I liked the funkiness of the place and the location. I would have liked a healthier selection of breakfast food.
