“Service with a smile - not!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

Last year I visited this establishment and left a review. Unfortunately, my recent visit results in further negative comments regarding staff.
This time the Bakery was staffed by a couple of young people and I must say that my delicious spicy shrimp croissant had more personality than the the young man who was stationed at the cash register. There was no smile, 'please' or 'thank you" from him when we ordered and paid and when we left no 'goodbye'
Service from the young lady was efficient but again she was solemn and unfriendly. What a stark contrast to my local coffee shop here in Venice. Perhaps these youngsters are the offspring of the unfriendly lady who served me last June?
What a shame for a place that serves great coffee and delicious snacks and pastries.

“Delicious fresh baked doughnuts and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014 via mobile

Called in for coffee at the Inn Bakery and had their cinnamon topped doughnuts as well. These were freshly baked and delicious and to coffee was good too - quite unlike the usual coffee served up by the multiple outlet chains.

Well worth calling in as they have good sandwiches too. Nice to see a local run store doing well!

“The best jelly donuts in Florida!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

If you are lucky they have jelly donuts. It is not available every day.
The donuts melt in your mouth. They also have tasty pastry, great croissant sandwiches and good coffee!

“Come Inn, Inn, Inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

The lemon zest on the donut holes was terrific surprise. Great espresso drinks but they need to offer in china cups as an option. Take away cups just cheat a cappuccino.

“Depends which staff are there!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

My first visit a few weeks ago was lovely with delicious pastries, really good coffee and friendly staff but my second visit a couple of days ago was spoiled by the brusque attitude of the older member of staff serving that day. I was not happy with my cappuccino (It was more like a latte) and very politely asked for another one. She then proceeded to inform me about the difference between a latte and cappuccino even though I have been drinking this type of coffee for over 50 years. It would have been far nicer if she had followed the old adage of "the customer is always right" and graciously changed the beverage with a smile.
I will return again as the croissant and Key Lime pie are great but just hope that this feedback has been given proper consideration.
I would have liked to have given this a 5 but due to the lady concerned have reduced my rating.
