4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We stopped here for the rice and black bean option and enjoyed a nice evening. The Martinis were good and the food was great.

“Wonderful Hangout in Siesta Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Among the bars, gift shops and pizza joinrts on Midnight Pass Road through the center of Siesta Key Village is a refuge known as LeLu's. Adjacent to Gilligan's, we hung out most of the afternoon on the front patio with our dog, enjoying the food, then two-for-one martinis and into coffee and dessert. It's a great spot for people watching away from the bar crowds. Once inside, there is a beautifully decorated coffee lounge and back porch. Our hostess Jaime did a great job making us feel welcome and keeping the food and drinks coming. Pretty much anytime day or night, LeLu's has something to offer and is a one-of-a-kind gem in the area.

“Best kept secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Found this tiny spot while walking down the village and stopped in for breakfast. The interior decor was really cozy with a modern feel to it, but the food was the real gem. This is a cool little spot that blends a coffee shop with a martini bar, but the food was so delicious! Highly recommended for a quick breakfast or afternoon iced coffee break.

“Very unique place, coffee, martinis, food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

This place is more like siesta key then any place. It's a must visit while you're here. G inside to order then either eat out front and watch the world go by, or inside with air conditioning and couches, or outlook with a great island surfboards kind of feel.

“Best coffee on the key”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

Went to this place for coffee twice, it is by far the best coffee in town an the atmosphere is a cool beach island feel to it. It was a great way to start out thr day before hitting the beach.
