Best coffee shop, but homeless people always outside

Mitchell's is the best coffee shop I've ever been to. Ive been coming here for about four years and have always loved it. Good people, rarely make mistakes, nice atmosphere, and they're especially comfortable with regulars like me, very much unlike corporate restaurats. Unfortunately, in recent... read more

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

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 review said their prices are outrageous, have you compared... 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

This is just what it says, a coffee house. I meet there for two hours once a week with about three friends to discuss politics and eat breakfast. The service is quick and efficient and the price for breakfast of eggs, toast, coffee and a sliced tomato is randomly about 5 to 8 dollars! We find it amusing that the... More

I go to Mitchell's about 1-2 times per week. Their coffee is great and their atmosphere is really neat. They have a community bookshelf (leave a book, take a book) next to the tables, which is something I think more coffee shops ought to consider. Their food isn't incredible, but it's certainly not bad at all. I haven't had the... More

I love the coffee at Mitchell's and best of all it is a local family that owes and runs the coffee shop. I wished they offered more diversity in food. They have the best flavors of coffee that is not added by sugar liquids like other well known coffee shops. The atmosphere is my favorite local hang out spot.
