I always feel like I step into another dimension when I enter this place. The incredible cool, laid back vibe just instantly relaxes me. The mural of Jim Morrison alone is worth a step inside.

My wife had a Cuban style coffee and I had a coconut smoothie. Both were excellent. I would highly recommend this coffee lounge.

Super friendly staff. We walk here for coffee or a smoothie in the morning. The staff is so happy to serve. We got iced coffee made with coffee cubes. Great for the walk home. Comfy, cool retreat. Nice for cocktails too?

The coffee here is great - I went every morning I stayed on the island. The barista is really friendly and laid back. One morning I ordered the fried cornbread breakfast and I can't be sure since they didn't say anything, but I'm pretty certain they ran out of cornbread and gave me baguette instead. It was still good, but... More

Cute little cafe! We found something for everyone & it was delish! My son loved the Nintendo that kept him entertained until our food came. Will visit again.

Ecletic decor, wonderful coffee and mimosa's with fresh squeezed OJ make this a family favorite. We eat here just about every morning when we are in town. Try the Goofy Omlette and take some ground or whole bean coffee and poppyseed muffins with you when you leave.

I try to get down to visit Siesta Key twice a year. Lelu's is my fave spot to hang out. I'm there every day on vacation, whether it's for a meal, or just for coffee. Awesome coffee drinks, great atmosphere, delicious food!

Great coffee and the breakfast is awesome! We come back here every year! We were extremely sad to hear about Carly this year who has waited on us/talked with us the last several visits. Our hearts go out to the staff...we are sorry for your loss.

I stopped in for a latte to go, it was before 8 am so there wasn't a lot of other guests that I could see. The latte was good, I'd get one there again.

I just had some coffee and a bagel while my wife had a breakfast plate. Everything was really good. Best part was the laid back atmosphere. Good coffee place!
