“Delicious decadent donuts dunked in delicate demitasse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

On a long weekend in Fort Myers, my parnter and I visited this coffeehouse after discovering the reviews on tripadvisor. The coffee, even their self-described mild, was bold, rich, and flavorful. We enjoyed it very much. Further, the coffe is bottomless so you can try their bolder flavor or the coffee of the day. We both had three cups the two days we visited. Compounding this wonderful experience were their sinful donuts. We shared a yeast donut covered with maple cream and real pieces of bacon. The following day, we shared a orange cocunut cream yeast donut. Truly, the police should raid this place since nothing this good can be legal!! I'll be driving the 150 miles to visit my folksmore often, so I can have a more routine fix.

“Real coffee and fresh doughnuts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We found this place by chance, and what a find!!! The coffee is fresh and the doughnuts, made in house, are addictive!!! The staff are lovely too. I haven't reviewed any of the other food because we were soooo in love with the doughnuts and cinnamon buns that we haven't tried anything else!
