It’s more than a coffee shop, it’s a place to help change a community. The Coffee Loft is a locally owned business established to offer amazing food and service while also developing relationships and impacting a culture. You’ll enjoy coffee, sodas, smoothies, and a variety of pastries and deserts to help you get through your day.
Not only that, but you’ll experience a laid back and unique atmosphere that’s perfect for connecting with friends, co-workers, fellow students, or those living in the neighborhood. We really are about changing a culture. Simply put, we serve coffee with a cause. We offer retail coffee for sale that is fair trade, an organized movement with social concern that helps coffee producers in developing countries. We are a non-profit organization established for the purpose of community revitalization. All profits go towards our community and international humanitarian projects. They include Charity Water, a non-profit organization that constructs wells to provide clean drinking water to people in poverty stricken areas around the world and the Sarasota and Manatee area Food Banks, providing food for area residents.
The Coffee Loft also wants to impact students in the area by giving opportunities to connect with one another and to have a safe place to hang out, do homework using our hi-speed internet, or catch a football game on high definition television. To encourage students to check us out, we’re giving a free T-Shirt to the first 500 college students who stop by.
The Coffee Loft is serious about promoting the arts. We’ll be having established music artists play on The Loft Stage upstairs. We also want to help develop new artists through our Open Mic Nights. Not only do we promote those with musical talents, we also provide an avenue for those who want to express themselves through the visual arts. We do this through our Open Art Studio Nights. For the dates of these events make sure you check out The Coffee Loft Calendar.
We hope you’ll come by and enjoy the food, atmosphere, and the friendly staff who are here to brighten your day!
