Downtown sarasota best place to people watch

Grab a latte and a Danish and sit outside. It's a great location to people watch and let time pass. If your a coffee person - plenty of selection. Better pastry choices earlier In the day.

I have only had coffee and pastry here. Sittings outside is a pleasure as it is always shady because of the large trees and generous umbrellas. The food looks good too. Great location in the heart of town. Friendly staff too.

This is not same shop that began in this location, Pastry Artist sold business, should have taken name.. New owner getting by on old name. No art here as far as pastries are concerned. We seated ourselves outside at a sticky table. I had to go in side and get someone to clean. Pastry was poor quality and friend left... More

I'm not sure what the vibe they are going for here. The quality of the coffee and pastries were along the level of a coffee shop at a train station-although the coffee IS fair trade. The couches give the impression that this is a place that you could while away reading or getting work done, but it really lacked the... More

Both barista and friend were lovely and smiling and helpful. I thought I would go in and see amazing looking pastry . Nice muffins and chocolates but no art. There was both indoor and outside seating, wifi available, and I can not resist a friendly smile. I will return.

Why go anywhere else, when you can sit outside, watch the world go by, drink fresh cuppa joe and enjoy an amazing almond log? Seriously, there is nothing else like it in the world. Chain coffee shops be damned, Pastry Art is the bomb.

Their espresso muffins are addictive. I stop by this place every time I visit Sarasota. Their baristas make a great cup of coffee!
