Located just a block away from gorgeous Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores Coffee Company is the perfect spot to pick up your morning cup of coffee and a freshly baked muffin before heading out for a day of relaxation on the quiet shores of Indian Rocks. This quaint, local shop serves up great drinks in a relaxing atmosphere.
Muffins and breakfast sandwiches are available to compliment your drink. Although I haven't tried one yet, the gluten-free muffins look fluffy and delicious.
Coffee is organic, which is always a big plus, as non-organic coffee contains many chemicals and pesticides. You will find an assortment of fantastic specialty drinks including an Almond Mocha (dark chocolate and almond milk) and a Banana Mocha (dark chocolate and bananas). Because many drinks use almond milk, vegan guests are able to order these specialty drinks, which are more often than not, off limits.
Baristas are friendly and efficient. There is almost never a wait, especially on weekday mornings.
Seating is available both indoors and outdoors. The covered outdoor patio is great on cool mornings and afternoons -great tunes in the background, a cool breeze, and cozy leather chairs to sit on while enjoying your fantastic drink.
The setting is casual and relaxed, perfect for reading, grabbing a drink with friends, or getting a little bit of work done. Weekday mornings are the perfect time to visit as the shop never gets overly crowded. The coffee shop is open late (9pm daily and 11pm Fridays), with live music on Friday nights.
I find myself visiting this cute little shop whenever I am in the Indian Shores area. It is one of the best local shops in the area, offering a quiet setting, great organic drinks, and a mellow atmosphere which perfectly compliments the laid back feeling of this wonderful beach area.
