To the bad reviews

This place is more along the lines of what you would expect a coffee house to be. The bad reviews are old and not even correct! There's one that says they use wonder bread for their sandwiches, false. The reviewer also stated they use individually wrapped American cheese, again false. Another... read more

Looking for a Real Coffee House filled with all types of people from business types to college students, and where good coffee is served, this is it. Wifi, book shelves filled with books to take or trade and plenty of old and mismatched chairs and tables, and conversation. Just missing a few old Hippies... Wait there's one...Enjoy!

I have been here many times. It always satisfies with delicious specials and DEADLY desserts. Even though I am not a regular coffee drinker, l drink coffee here, because it is sooooo good! It is. cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter. Popular with all folks, it is worth your time to visit this downtown delight.

This place has great coffee. Nice staff. I am not sure why no one can make a veggie burger though. This was pre made and was hard around the edges. They did remake it but was still not that great and they cut the tomato in half the second round. (Really you can only afford a small tomato slice cut... More

Visiting family in Lakeland, Fl and decided to try a local coffee shop. Mitchell's is seriously the best! I ordered an iced Crème Brule specialty coffee and it was amazing! All the flavors combined made for a killer iced coffee. Don't forget to order the homemade brownies to go with that coffee.

Local place with friendly staff, great coffee, and comfortable atmosphere. You can read one of their paperbacks inside or watch downtown Lakeland when sitting outside. Get a discount when you bring your mug from home.

Met a friend for lunch- both ordered the special- broccoli cheddar soup with sandwich wrap- very good, very reasonable. Had an iced Chai Latte as well- very enjoyable. Free WiFi which came in handy to show pics -and catch up on news with our families. There is free street parking but scarce-however there is a pay lot right next store... More

Great atmoshere in this laid back spot in historic building. Very good coffee and tea with wide choice of pastries. Free wifi and large space make this a terrific, inviting place for a break. Free street parking.

Good coffee, good sweets, quick and friendly service makes Mitchell's the coffee spot in downtown. Coffee and prices are much better than Starbucks (better named Bigbucks)! Plus, it is locally owned, family operated establishment. Hope you will give it a try and see if you don't enjoy the experience as much as do I, whether it get and go, sit... More
