Cute very artsy little coffee shop!

I was craving some coffee and didn't want the usual corporate Starbucks experience and saw this cute little coffee shop right around the corner. There's art on the ceilings, handmade items, and all around such a cute place for being so small. There's so many drink choices that sounded amazing it... read more

Was looking for a place to get some coffee and my family and I stumbled upon this hole in the wall coffee shop. When I say hole in the wall, I literally mean I'm not sure how the structure is standing. The staff was friendly but the coffee & feel of the shop was not up to par. I asked... More

I go here with my friends kinda of regularly. Everything is super good my faves are the not quite a Cuban sandwich and then if you ask them to infuse the frozen hot chocolate frappe with earl grey tea... It's a dream come true. Also you can get hot chocolate with the tea if you like hot stuff better, it's... More

This place does not open until noon on Sundays which is just too late for a coffee hop. It has a funky college dive appeal and delivers a nice cup of coffee. I like that they do not use disposable cups. They offer nice drink alternatives to coffee which are pretty good overall. The food is okay, I've had better... More

I had lunch here and I loved their creative attitude toward their food. The coffee was delicious and their tea selection was extensive! The actual shop is small but not crowded and there is a nice, shaded patio on the side. Overall really good experience and definitely a great alternative to Starbucks!

I was delightfully pleased at the cool atmosphere, knowledgable barista (Brittany), and the delicious coffee & Panini. I had the Dirty Chocolate Iced Chai Tea Latte and the Caprazy with Chicken; do yourself a favor and get the same! The calm vibe and eclectic decor makes for a perfect start to your morning. Great classic light rock and maybe some... More

I'm always on the look out for mom and pop type places to eat, not chain restaurants. This place fits the bill perfectly. This is an old house that still looks like an old house. Many years ago it used to be a honeymoon cottage. It was at one time, used as student housing. The University of South Florida is... More

I visited this funky coffee shop for the first time today, based on the tripadvisor reviews. It is a little out of the way - but once you find it, it's a very cool, fun little place right off Fowler. I ordered a mocha latte and a Belgium waffle. If rating the coffee alone, they would get five stars. It... More

Thank you so much for visiting Wonderbebe100 and thank you for the compliments on the mocha drink that you enjoyed! We are saddened that you were disappointed by the other treats and just wanted to let you know that, while we are a very small establishment without the adequate amount of kitchen space needed in order to create delectable desserts...

I am visiting USFwith two high school Juniors in Florida to check out several colleges over spring break. We were about to have breakfast at a national chain restaurant but had to do a U turn to get there. We saw Felicitous while turning and we're attracted by its fun funky look and side patio. Everything here stayed true to... More

My husband and I remember shops just like this one in San Francisco back in the sixties. The coziness, hospitality and look of the place just took us right back to an amazing era in our lives. It is officially our new date cafe! We had some amazing Caprese paninis and some cafe au laits, both hit the spot in... More
