Review of Blue Sail Coffee

Blue Sail Coffee
Ranked #10 of 19 Coffee & Tea in Little Rock
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 June 2018 via mobile

This seems like a nice place, but they are trying to run a coffee shop using a single head espresso machine — this means that at any one time, the lone barista can only work on one drink.

We came into the seemingly empty coffee shop, place and pod for our order and then had to wait nearly 20 minutes for our iced americano and cortado! The barista was professional, kind and as efficient as possible, but this is like trying to run a gas station with only a single gas pump and is really a bit maddening.

After all that the coffee was good but worth the wait.

if you're within a half-mile of this location you should walk here instead of drinking the bad hotel coffee. The location is new and modern with young entrepreneurial owners that were enthusiastic and friendly. My simple black dark roast coffee pour over was delicious. I recommend the sundried tomato & spinach quiche and the coffee cake. Very delicious and worth the trip if your in downtown. They served the coffee in a laboratory beaker; very cool.

Stopped for a quick cup of coffee and meeting with a business associate. The coffee was excellent and the staff polite.

OMG, the coffee was so good. I'm taking it home. I had the honey espresso which was perfect. The atmosphere was very relaxing. What a great place to decompress and drink great coffee.

The Blue Sail Coffee shop has two locations in Conway and are now branching into Little Rock. We've tried the location in Conway and we were not impressed so we thought we would give them a second chance.

The staff, no matter which location, are very friendly. Greeting you almost immediately and eager to help with recommendations.

The new location in Little Rock is located at a Technology park building in downtown Little Rock--good location, but you need to find a parking spot on the street.

They offer the typical coffee drinks you know and love. One of the unique features of this store is that they do latte art in your drink.

The design of the store is modern and the seating reflects it with pub tables with built in power outlets for your electronics. Upstairs are modern booths for a private and quiet area.

I tried the lemon muffins that they recommended, but it was nothing to write home to mom about. My wife had a mocha but her last sip tasted metallic and she need to take a sip of my drink to get rid of the taste. Don't know what that was about.

All in all, it is a nice atmosphere but the drinks need some work and limited menu items. With it being new, I am sure they will get better...
