We always look forward to Lelu coffee in the morning. My wife and I go almost each morning after walking the beach and the place is always busy.

Every time we come to Sarasota and Siesta, we stop at Lelu's. Relaxed atmosphere, great espresso, and the staff is always friendly no matter how busy. Outdoor and indoor dining. And a bowl of water for the pups!

Discovered this place on our last day in siesta key. Really loved the coffee at Lelu's which I had been told by a local was the best on the island and found it to be true. We ordered pancakes which were huge but took a good 30/40 minutes to get them. Hopefully it's not like this all the time as... More

Have only tasted the food once, so I would not comment on it. Nicely located as you enter Siesta Key Village. Interesting decor.

Overall, I thought our breakfast was very good, and the service was also above average. Dallas(I think?) took good care of us and we appreciate it. I'm only deducting one star for minor nitpicks. The pancakes were huge, tasted good but not outstanding. Have had better and worse. So the presentation was spot on, but taste a slight let down,... More

Our barista Stephanie took our orders with a smile and Cheyenne our server was cheerful and helpful. The breakfast was amazing and the coffee delicious. A great place to have breakfast or just coffee We'll be back. This is a must-stop when visiting Siesta Key

Lelu is a good coffee shop but after two tries I will not go back for a meal. The place shares a kitchen with Gilligans next door. To say the food service is slow is an understatement. To top off the 45 minute wait for breakfast food our waitress missed the memo on customer service. After she mixed up the... More

Hi guys! Thanks so much for your review. The Memorial Day weekend is one if the busiest holiday weekends just about anywhere. Where you guys were sitting, on the back beach patio, was on a wait for about an hour that day. Your server, who had mentioned we were running long ticket times when she took your order, can only...

Hi Mrs. A, Sorry to hear your experience was less than amazing at LeLu. I do recall your visit in May, which is one of our busiest summer months. Being a small business owner, I do the best I can with what I've got. I take a lot of pride in serving a local, fresh product which takes time to... More
