Quirky interesting spot

A locals spot for sure, but great, great live jazz Saturday night! The best thing going for it. Service is best for those known by the employees or you could be sitting waiting for a while..A pretty cool atmosphere and the jazz makes all the difference

The coolest little coffee shop, although we did not have coffee. We had drinks (Strawberry Mojito and Bloody Mary) and they were both hand-made, muddled with care, and two of the best drinks on our vacation. Siesta Key is great all by itself, but this little find was fantastic! Great drinks, eclectic atmosphere, and the back patio is very tranquil.... More

We are sitting here right now and it is a great place to just watch all of the action. I am not a coffee drinker but the Screwdrivers are great, and all the coffee they make smells wonderful. We will definitely be back for a breakfast and fun. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK.

Want a espresso on Siesta Key? This is the place to go. I'd only recommend that they be a lot hotter. Great place to lounge inside or out. Tables or couches inside and shaded or sunny breezy tables outside or if you prefer, bar table inside and out. Relaxed, beachy place. They serve food and drinks at reasonable prices for... More

It was a rainy morning but that didn't stop us as we were able to sit under a covered seating area outside. There were 6 of us and while we could've sat inside on couches I didn't feel like eating on my lap. The inside is nice and comfortable but not big on tables (coffee shop for sure, and it... More

I stayed within walking distance of Lelu on Siesta Key, and treated myself on the first day to a coconut mocha. and then i went back every day after that. and i brought home enough siesta snow coffee to warrant a special search at the airport. Also if i could live in Lelu I would be eternally happy-- its so... More

First visit to LeLu and we would definitely go back. My husband had a bloody Mary and said it was really good. We both enjoyed our breakfast.

The staff is always so friendly and they make you feel like you are right at home (a local). YOU must make this a stop on the "to-do" list while visiting Siesta Key or Sarasota. Some days I wish I had the time to drive down just for a cup of coffee and the JUMBO (I mean JUMBO) buttermilk pancakes,... More
