Did the mug life choose you? Light and sweet, dark as night, piping hot or over ice – as long as you have your coffee nobody gets hurt, right? If you list your blood type as “coffee,” then here are six coffee shops on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel where you can cozy up with the perfect blend.
When in need of caffeine on Fort Myers Beach, make your way to Tuckaway Café. They serve a great cup of joe of course, but they also make authentic Belgian waffles that pair oh so well with their coffee. Plus, you can bring your dog to hang out on the pet-friendly patio.
Fancy a donut to go with your coffee? Bennett’s Fresh Roast in Downtown Fort Myers makes 15,000 melt-in-your-mouth donuts – from scratch – to go with the 800 pounds of coffee they roast each month. That’s a lot of donuts and coffee.
Matlacha is a haven for artists, makers, thinkers and tinkers. Naturally, they fuel their creativity at The Perfect Cup, where beans sourced from all over the world are roasted on site. While you’re there, try the Crabby Big Daddy omelet with lump blue crab, asparagus, smoked provolone and eggs. It’s a work of art in itself.
There’s something for every member of the family at Sanibel Bean: Dark roast for dad, an iced vanilla latte for mom and creamy, hand-dipped ice cream for kids of all ages. Grab a bag of coffee beans to take with you so you can brew up a bit of Sanibel Island at home.
There’s never a dull moment on Captiva Island, especially when you’re at Latte Da, a vibrant little coffee shop where your shot of espresso comes with a jolt color. Sweeten the deal with an affogato made with Queenie’s Homemade Ice Cream. Bellissimo!
When visiting Cape Coral, go where the locals go and head to Perk & Brew. In addition to delicious coffee drinks, they’re known for their authentic spanakopita as well as a mean meatball – served in a bread bowl and topped with melted cheese.
Life is too short for bad coffee. Luckily, you’re never too far away from a grade-A cup of the good stuff on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel. Start planning your trip now, but first – coffee.
