We found this place on our last visit, and visited numerous times, and it's become a favourite for both it's food and drinks, as well as soaking up the atmosphere with the locals. Coffee is either drip type no frills, or European specials i.e. Latte, cappuccino etc, whilst pastries and lunchtime specials are numerous and tasty. Loved this small coffee... More

We stopped in here twice while we were in town. They have great coffee, many choices of muffins, cookies, etc to take care of that sweet tooth. Also, I had an egg sandwich on a croissant that was very good. Indoor and outdoor seating available.

I'm not a Starbucks fan, so I left the hotel in search of a good cup of coffee. I found Pastry Art on Main street, and what a find! Fresh, very yummy pastries, lots of choices for the coffee addict(like me) and a wonderfully friendly staff. The weather was warm and sunny so we chose to sit outside and watch... More

THE place for coffee in all its forms in downtown sarasota. better than starbucks. sandwiches and fresh baked goods are also excellent. order at the counter. casual atmosphere, several tables outside on the street with comfortable chairs. a great place for light lunch. linger to read, sip, and people-watch.

Coffee seems of excellent quality, reasonably priced. Their muffins are lush, at around two bucks a unit, and so abundant I could not bear to finish mine. Laughable or not. The statuesque gentleman with the shaved head who took my order was the best, perhaps ever, impeccable service and perfectly timed expression of concerns. Additionally the one called "Maude" is...

We found this place by accident when looking for an alternative to a mediocre hotel breakfast. The staff were roundly and efficient. The breakfast sandwich selection was wonderful and made on the spot, the muffins looked great, but the coffee was absolutely the best. The outside tables are fun but the inside tables are a bit disheveled and need more... More

Great 'hole in the wall' coffee and 'more' place!! Sometimes have to clean own table before you sit down -- but pastries are excellent!! Coffee is the best!! Handy to everything downtown!!

I have been struggling with this review as I really like this cafe and have for several years. Last year there was a change in ownership and I have noticed a difference. Gone are the students and café bloggers who gave the place a certain vibe. The coffee is still great - especially the Americano (which might be the best... More

Great bagels. Great muffins. Pretty good coffee I imagine, but I am not a coffee drinker. I love going each morning and getting a fresh cranberry orange muffin!
