Amiable and convenient coffee shop on Main Street downtown central Sarasota. In-house baking very good as well as coffee selections. Core staff friendly and competent. Busy but in a good way. WiFi and outdoor seating.

They are big and loaded with blueberries if you get a blueberry muffin. They give you a choice of coffees and you get it yourself. The coffee... More

Water is provided for dogs outside. The muffins... More

Nice spot for coffee and a fresh muffin, but steer clear of anything else!! The food items are terrible!!

We stopped here for lunch on our way out of town. The sandwiches were very good in a nice, cozy, setting. It did take a little while for our beverages (cherry soda and water) to come out as they seem to prioritize their coffee customers, although it would have been a problem if it hadn't been so hot outside.

We arrived in Sarasota just around lunch time and were looking for a light meal. We peeked at the menu and decided to give it a try. What a great decision! The sandwiches are delicious and filling. The staff are super friendly and extremely accommodating! We went back a couple days later for their muffins and they did not disappoint.... More

What a nice place..... Excellent, friendly service and a blueberry muffin larger than a softball. Soooo good. Washed it down with a couple of cups of chocolate/raspberry coffee. We sat outside and watched the city beginning to come to life. A very enjoyable morning. Excellent!
