“Excellent waitress”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

I was in a few days ago and had a waitress by the name of Alex. She was wonderful, bubbly and always had a smile on her face. Food was excellent, as was the service. Will most definitively have to stop by again when in town

Love the vibe and laid back atmosphere. They have seating in the front, inside and in the back. Great breakfast menu, the food was fresh and reasonably priced. Will definitely return again.

“Great coffee with So-So Service”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Visited LeLu Coffee Lounge at least once a day during a recent 4 day trip to Siesta Key. The coffee is wonderful. We had breakfast sandwiches that were delicious. The atmosphere is as expected - relaxed and laid back. Only negative is the service. A few employees were pleasant but a blonde young lady that worked in the mornings was so rude and unfriendly it was comical. I will visit again on my next trip to Siesta Key. I would recommend to others based on the quality of the coffee and food but caution to lower expectations regarding service.

“A true Coffee House that carries a relaxing vibe!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I have put off for months the drive from North Port, FL to come to this treasure of Siesta Key until yesterday. I am so grateful to have finally come because the visit did more than pictures could give justice. This place is the reason Starbucks is disgusting and that is because these baristas know coffee! They are down to earth and real in personality. Kayla was the Batista that evening and she made my visit there feel very welcomed. I will be back very soon for more.

“LATTE STOP”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

Stopped by two mornings for a Latte. Tasted OK but has to ask them to fill up the cup with more milk and it wasn't very warm. $5.00 for a large Latte is overpriced.

They serve other meals but with the layout there are few tables and not really conducive to dining while other people are there to lounge on couches and chairs.

Thanks for stopping by, sorry your milk wasn't warm enough. We can happily steam milk to any temperature, just let us know!! Our large latte includes 3.5 ounces of espresso where most places serve only two…we like the extra jolt and our locals do too! We do offer a singe and a double shot latte which is a bit lower in price. Our prices also include 7% FL sales tax.

LeLu is deceiving when it comes to tables if your not looking beyond the shop…we have a HUGE outdoor patio with 11 tables seating 4 people at 9 tables and up to 8 people at 2 tables. If you only go as far as the shop then you would never know this. Grab a server next time and let them know you'd like to sit down and you can have your pick of the property as we also have a front patio with 6 two top tables and of course the inside with 7 tables and 4 large couches!!! Hope this helps you maneuver your next visit, thanks again for stopping by….travel well!!!
