I went to this place two days in a row because the coffee was the best!! Friendly baristas and they give to charities. Lots of seating inside and a very chill environment. Also have a couple outdoor tables.

Very Good. Interesting selection of sandwiches and baked goods. Try it when you're in Sarasota by the airport.

This is a great little spot on 41 that's close to the University of Florida. They have pretty cheap food and drinks and a spacious loft with lots of seating, windows, and a small stage for performances. I would definitely stop in again if I was in the area.

I visited twice during my brief stay in Sarasota. The coffee was fantastic and the gentleman who opens in the a.m. was extremely friendly.

THIS IS THE HANGOUT Before I even speak caffeine, let’s talk about the comfy cuteness of the inside. There’s high-top seats on the 1st floor but once you climb up the spiral stairs to the loft, there’s a plethora of space for studying with semi-privacy. You’re bound to see half the spaces taken up by the college crowd yet it’s... More
