An ugly exterior and shabby interior hide the very best muffins in the Tampa Bay area. Get your order to go, though, as there is no place decent to sit.

This is a great little coffee shop. I was on vacation and went there almost every day for an iced chai. Better than Starbucks!

Delicious smoothie, phenomenal muffins (gluten free are to die for) and good sandwiches. We didn't even have coffee but imagine it was great too. Returned a second time for muffins to go for the road. The outside seating was relaxing. Inside is a little rustic...but eclectic and fun. Friendly workers. Don't expect elegance but it was a yummy relaxing spot.More

Enjoyed very much the coffee here. Much better than big box coffee and the staff was extremely pleasant!

And excellent coffee. They have different volumes - I opted for the 'golden middle' of 16 oz., since I was going to take it out eventually, being on the road up the Pinellas County. Indian Shores Coffee Company - aka as a great coffee shop...- is located on Gulf Blvd, so if you drive from Madeira Beach to say, Clearwater - the shop is right in between these two cities, close to Indian Rocks Beach. This coffee shop is very well marked - it's on the right side of the blvd, if you drive North. It has two seating areas, the one outside looks almost unreal: it is cozy, covered not only by umbrellas, but also by a natural shade of some gorgeous trees, that nicely separate the seating area from a busy road. It looks so pretty, and well-designed, for customers to enjoy their breakfast, snack or coffee break. The menu is quite vast, offering not only varieties of coffee of course, but baked goods (croissants, muffins, etc.). The service was very friendly - welcoming and hospitable. Quite a find it was - Indian Shores Coffee Company! And yes, Cappuccino was just great.More

It defies all marketing propaganda, it is behind a lush green screen of shrubs, but inside is an oasis. A must to visit the photos do not lie, perfect for any visitor, no matter what age, if you are only at Indian Rocks for a...week make the effort and enjoy a coffee, tea, muffin, sit relax and listen, its a place to return to over and over.More

Just SO good is the best description of this quaint place. You best not be in a hurry as it appears only 2 people work there, but worth the wait. Breakfast sandwich- egg, cheese, bacon, bread- are wonderful for only $6. The latte is perfection...in a cup. I could go every morning!More

This coffee shop is quaint! As soon as you step in, you feel at home. There was a line when we got there at 10:30am, but hey, you know a place is good when there is a line! The line went quickly because the staff...seemed passionate about their jobs. I got a frozen Purple Haze (Dark Chocolate & Caramel) and my wife got the frozen Caramel Sutra (Carmel & Vanilla). It was really good! These drinks are on the sweeter side, and not the bitter side. So if you have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you if you’re craving a frozen drink! There were lots of other options as well! Their pastries looked amazing!More
