The best coffee shops on Anna Maria Island

| April 12, 2022

Did you know that wasn’t really popular in America until the Boston Tea Party of 1773 when making the switch from tea to coffee became something of a patriotic duty? Whether it is for love of country or just love of that smooth, dark goodness many of us love coffee. While you are visiting, if you want a cup, we know some of the best coffee shops on Anna Maria Island.

Tintos Colombian Coffee Shop and Bakery

Colombia is synonymous with coffee and for good reason. Tintos serves premium Colombian coffee six days a week, along with authentic food and treats. Tintos carried lunch items, such as empanadas as well as desserts like flan. For non-coffee drinkers, there are smoothies and a local favorite, Agua de Pina (Pineapple water). Coffee shop patrons can be a fickle bunch, so when you see 5-star ratings on Yelp and Trip Advisor, you have to put it on your list to check out. Tintos is located at 119 Bridge St, Suite 130, Bradenton Beach, FL 34217 and they are open Tuesday through Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

Cool Beans AMI

“Coffee to us is a way of life.” That’s how the owners of Cool Beans describe it and it tells you how seriously they take coffee. The shop is one of the newer ones on Anna Maria Island, but it has become a local favorite quickly. Cool Beans features coffee from Columbia, Ethiopia, Guatemala and Honduras and they are committed to only offering organic and fair trade coffee. The shop has vegan and CBD options as well. Their outdoor seating overlooks the City Pier and Tampa Bay. One unique feature is their selection of products from local artists and vendors. Cool Beans is located at 101 S. Bay St, Anna Maria, FL 34216 and is open every day from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.

North Shore Cafe

The North Shore Cafe serves breakfast and lunch six days a week (closed on Tuesday) including a full complement of coffee drinks like espressos, macchiatos, lattes and cappuccinos. Along with your coffee, breakfast can include choices of avocado toast, poached eggs or pastries and bagels. The cafe offers outdoor seating to enjoy the quiet water view. They are open from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm on weekdays and from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm on weekends. The North Shore Cafe is located at 304 Pine Avenue, Anna Maria, Florida 34216.

The Donut Experiment

Let’s be honest, few things go with coffee better than a donut and the Donut Experiment has both old favorites and bold experiments to go with your coffee. The Anna Maria location began as Anna Maria Donuts in 2012 and has grown into a small chain. The shop makes the donuts in front of the customer, with the customer picking their toppings and style. Choose your icing (or don’t, it’s your donut), choose a topping and choose a drizzle. Viola, your custom donut. Of course, they have a full selection of coffee and coffee drinks available. Check out their website for options and unusual specialty donuts. The Donut Experiment is open every day from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm and is located at 210C Pine Ave, Anna Maria, FL 34216. These are just a few of the best coffee shops on Anna Maria Island. If you want to know more places like healthy eating options or romantic restaurants, we are here to help.
