You can get your java jolt here, lots of good coffee drinks. Also, offers some pastries, cookies, cakes and slices of pie. You can sit on the balcony with beach and river views. Also, has board games you can play.

You see a Starbucks on every corner! But, what if you don't want Starbucks? Toots is a local coffee bar located upstairs above Margaritaville. The coffee is always good and many of the snacks are homemade and tasty. It is a unkempt style place that could use a little face lift but despite that fault, it is generally cozy. The... More

This was one of the best cups of hot chocolate I have ever had and it came with fresh whipped cream on top. Staff was so nice and friendly. Great place for a raining day to read a good book. Upstairs and I don'r think there is an elevator.

Great coffee and great atmosphere! The back balcony overlooks the beach of this 2nd story coffee shop. The staff is always friendly, too.

In the land of really high quality coffee the coffee at Toot's was ok. Nothing special and no depth of flavor to their organic coffee. It simply tasted flat and burned. The spot is hard to find but if you need a caffeine fix then head upstairs near margaritaville. This is a good spot for a simple coffee.

Every time we are in Capitola we come here for coffee and the atmosphere. The employees are super nice and friendly, the selection is amazing and have something for everyone. We stayed and listened to the music and enjoyed the view.

One of the attractions of Mr. Toots is that it's on the second floor and has a nice balcony and view. It's a very small place (balcony included), but has a great vibe that embodies the Capitola atmosphere. The coffee and pastries are good and they have something for everybody. If you want to escape for a bit and just... More

This is a great place. It's homey and relaxing. The atmosphere is cool and the employees were super nice. My Americano was great. The hot ciders were good and the hot chocolate awesome. WHIP CREAM! It's the real deal. Served in a dollop right out of a mixing bowl.

Capitola is a beautiful area and the orange mocha at Mr. Toots is a delicious treat unlike the normal coffees at shops. They also have gluten free cookies for the customers that need to avoid wheat and gluten.

This beautiful town is buzzing with lovely restaurants which are quite busy. We just wanted a coffee so this place was perfect. Lovely view from the balcony and nice if limited food.
