To say that my experience at this coffee shop was unpleasant would be a gross understatement. My coffee was just ok and very overpriced, while the service was nothing short of heinous. The older woman running the register did not give me my change after taking my money. She proceeded to engross herself in conversation with another employee while someone... More

During each of our four annual visits to Florida, we visited this local coffee shop often and enjoyed both the coffee and the outside tables. This year, the shop closes at 3:00 each day, no coffee mugs available, coffee poor quality and the owner/staff do not seem to be happy campers. We were very disappointed.

Sheesh, grumpy is the first word that comes to mind when visiting this place. This guy was rude and didn't seem to care if I was in the store or not. The coffee is okay but I won't be back. Not a positive experience at all!

My husband and I love to support our small businesses on Siesta Key, but unfortunately we can get better service in Starbucks then here. The two people that are always there when we stop to get coffee are the two most miserable people we have ever encountered when getting coffee. Very sad, they could care less if you are there...

Stopped in for an espresso and bagel after a sunrise walk on the beach. Great jazz playing in the background and a local vibe made it very relaxing.

Zack and his peeps do a bang up with their bold brews, smoothies, breakfast, desserts and friendly banter. There are usually a number of nice locals (and sometimes locos like me) for cool or casual conversation and some laughs.

We got our morning coffee here every day during vacation in Siesta Key and it was excellent. They have good coffee shop selection of coffees, teas, mochas, lattes etc. It was hot and flavorful. I also got a latte one day which was also excellent. The location is great, in a little strip mall downtown, close to shops and restaurants... More

Predictable coffee with reheated food items. Service adequate but not wam or memorable. I've been there a dozen times with the same tattooed dude helping but never indicating recognition.

Stop in and see Zach at The Local Beach. This place is so cozy and I love the island feel. His teas and coffees are second to none and there really is something for everyone to try.
