Great coffee house

We must have gone here 4 times in 2 and a half days. We were staying within walking distance. It had a warm and friendly atmosphere, old fashion, and great food and coffee. The service staff were great. Will go back.

I had my first Cafe Borgia at this coffee house 30 years ago and it is still going strong...although I notice that they no longer add zest of orange to the top of the whip Cream. There is a balcony overlooking the beach and the river, Chess sets and books to read, and fast fast WiFi. What a cool place!

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

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.
