Good coffee, food was meh

Being from the northeast, I have a certain expectation for a bagel...it was not met. These were slightly better then a frozen lenders. The coffee was good, and they have smoothly options, but I would choose "Among the flowers" just down the road over this place any day.

Great place to stop and grab breakfast or lunch. Decent coffee as well. Prices are a little high and service is average, but will continue to stop there for the food. I recommend the breakfast burrito - it's enormous!

Not the friendliest of people behind the counter, but they make a good frozen caramel coffee. Yum. When you are spending $6 for a drink, I don't want attitude.

This used to be one of our favorite breakfast places on Sanibel - what happened? It is so shabby, the place needs a good scrubbing inside and out. The carafe coffee wasn't hot enough, and there wasn't enough staff. The staff used to be personable and fresh and obviously enjoyed working there - the current staff is just the opposite,... More

This is the place for a coffee lover. With a huge selections of beans and a great selection of lattes, cappuccinos and cold coffee drinks. We came in near closing and were disappointed that they had very few treats left, but I suppose that proves how fresh their baked goods are. Service was friendly and helpful. They have a nice...

Admittedly, we visited during one of the busiest weeks of the year, but we waited 25 minutes for our lattes and they were prepared incorrectly. I prefer Bailey's coffee bar.

I like the fact one can get a bagel with cream cheese and coffee. All of which is very good, but they make New York City seem like a bargain. I cannot justify going back there based on the value to cost ratio. They have been there for many years, and their business is the tourist trade. I do not... More

We were happy with the two sandwiches we ordered (grilled cuban and an artichoke hearts panini). The prices weren't bad considering how loaded the sandwiches were (there was no skimping to be seen). The coffee my companions ordered was definitely worth mentioning as well, and another customer said to us that the decaf was delicious. I'd recommend a visit to... More

We stopped here three times during our stay and enjoyed the coffee drinks, breakfast burritos, scones and bagels. It was nice place to stop for a quick bite. They had outdoor seating and an indoor area with wi fi. We wanted to stop back for ice cream later in the week but just ran out of time.

We swing by the Sanibel Bean for a to-go cappuccino and had a very nice experience. We struck up a conversation with the guy that took our order, only to find out his family was from our hometown! Very friendly. The cappuccino was hot a very good. We've never eaten here but I'd definitely consider it next trip!
