Don't expect the variety of a Starbucks menu. I got a flat white to go, which the barista presented to me with a perfect heart. It even retained it's shape through most of my sips. My kid got a plain glazed donut, which was so big, he couldn't finish it. I don't like donuts, but this one was delicious. It... More

Nice location, great decor and friendly staff, but I'm afraid the coffee was too bitter for me (similar to other reviewers comments). We tried 2 different coffees and both tasted bitter and over roasted (IOHO of course). So overall a very nice place with great staff and if you like American coffee (vs. softer, milder, medium roasted European, Asian or... More

Perq Coffee Bar is an excellent place if you want to learn more about coffee (or not). They have a unique brewing system and their staff are really knowledgable and passionate about coffee. As a Sarasota local, I consider Perq a local treasure and like to stop in whenever passing by. The decor and overall vibe is awesome. If you... More

Popped in here for a quick espresso. Servers were friendly and the espresso was properly pulled. Looked like a good place to hang out for a bit - quieter than most coffee joints. Loved the huge safe in the room off to the side.

In certain (pseudo?) sophisticated circles it is not unusual to gaze down one’s nose at all things Florida. Mind you I indulge as readily as the next ex-Californian, ex-New Yorker, ex-World Traveler. Such snobbery is well-deserved in so many respects, yes? NONE OF THIS APPLIES TO PERQ COFFEE BAR IN SARASOTA, FLORIDA! To step in here is to step enter... More

I travel broadly for work and actively seek out the best coffee wherever I go. Perq stacks up to the best coffee shops in Portland Oregon. I went everyday for a week while in town. I had no negative experiences.

I have a prescription for two Gibraltars daily. This is the best coffee in the USA. Quality takes a few minutes, so be patient.
