Coffees, teas, kombuchas, wines, craft beers, and books.
A natural fit, don’t you think? 


First, let’s talk about our coffee. We are partners with specialty coffee roasters who, like us, believe that coffee should be extraordinary. The coffee you’ll enjoy at The Reserve is carefully selected from farmers who diligently grow and process their beans to the highest quality. Our beans are treated with tremendous care and they have been artfully roasted to perfection.

We believe coffee is best enjoyed when it is freshly roasted and meticulously prepared. In our handcrafted coffees, which include lattes, cortados, Americanos, and more, we use fresh local milk products from one of our valued partners, locally based Dakin Dairy. The positive difference in quality and taste is remarkable. We also offer a variety of milk alternatives, too!

You can enjoy your coffee at The Reserve, and you can even pick up a whole or ground bag of specialty coffee to go. We also offer coffee delivery service for meetings and events.

But if you're just not that into coffee, we also have a variety of teas, kombuchas, wines, craft beers, and other beverages that you can enjoy--either on-site, or you can also take them home with you. We work with the region's top wine distributors to bring you a highly curated selection of reds and whites, by the glass, or by the bottle.

We also have an assortment of locally curated, artisanal "light bites" from Boar's HeadGlenn Family Bakery, and more to perfectly complement the beverages of your choice. Our selection changes frequently, so please be sure to check back in periodically. If you have a great local product you'd like us to consider, please email

As lifetime readers and consumers of well, er, a variety of beverages, we thought it made perfect sense to join books, coffees/teas, wines, kombuchas, and craft beers together to create the perfect space to hang out and have a drink or snack while reading the latest bestsellers, as well as up-and-comers and local authors, too. Here you can consult with one of our passionate, trained "booktenders" (we also call them "librewians") to find just the right book for you, or browse our carefully curated book selections in genres including fiction, non-fiction, biography/history, politics, poetry, spirituality, young adult, kids' books and more.

Local authors:
Little known fact:  The Reserve is a home for local authors to sell and promote their work. Contact Joe at for more information.

Book Sales In-store or Online:
Pick up -- or order -- your books and we'll have it here almost as fast as Amazon can deliver. While you're at it, you can have a nice coffee, tea, kombucha or other beverage while enjoying our expansive brick courtyard under Sarasota’s beautiful skies. You can also enjoy a great glass of wine or a craft beer, and if you're in a hurry, you can even have your beverage packaged and take it with you!


Retail Wine Shop

The Reserve, the only retail wine shop in Downtown Sarasota/North Trail, partners with many of the Southeast’s leading wine distributors to bring Sarasota a curated selection of delectable red wines and white wines. Our retail wine selection represents many different types and regions, and is stocked with small-production and boutique wines from all over the world at affordable prices. You can enjoy your wine by the bottle or by the glass in our beautiful, quaint outdoor courtyard with Edison bulb lighting or inside at our Piano Bar/Tasting Room. Starting now, there's no need to travel that far, no need to buy at the grocery store or large retailer, or even to join an expensive wine club. We have new wines arriving weekly and wine tastings once-a-month. Below are some featured wines. Please see our current wine menu, join our mailing list for wine tastings by filling out this form, or check our calendar on this website for the latest wine tastings.

Winemaker Notes

Sourcing fruit from diverse vineyards creates complex aromas and rich structure for the Napa Valley Cabernet. The mountain fruit provides smooth, velvety tannins with aromas and flavors of black cherries and blackberries, while the valley floor fruit provides dusty cocoa, currants, and brown sugar.

Winemaker Notes

Aromas of blackberry, peat, fresh strawberries, roses, and sarsaparilla. On the palate flavors of rustic vanilla, coffee, cola, and raspberry are present.

Wine Spectator – Score of 91

Firm and focused, with strong gravel notes weaving through the blackberry and currant flavors, coming together harmoniously on the expressive, focused finish.

Momo New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.jpg


Winemaker Notes

Displays a complex nose with aromas of tropical fruit, herbaceous notes and a hint of cassis. The natural fermentation adds a rich and textural quality to the palate, with subtle notes of lemon zest and passion fruit. The finish is crisp and dry.

Delicious with all types of seafood and light salads, or enjoy by itself as a refreshing aperitif.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate – Score of 90

The 2015 Organic Sauvignon Blanc is beginning to show a little development with honey and lanolin notes over a core of peaches and lemon curd plus a waft of dried herbs. The medium-bodied palate gives excellent intensity with a satiny texture and plenty of verve, finishing on a honeyed lemon note.

Craft Beers On Tap and By the Bottle

The Reserve has a great, curated selection of craft beers on tap from the area's leading local craft breweries (such as J. Dub's, Big Top, Motorworks, Coppertail, etc.), as well as independent craft offerings from throughout the U.S. Our line-up changes frequently, so be sure to check back often. We also have a small selection of unique bottled offerings, from mead to Viking's Blod, farmhouse ales, sours, tripels, and others.
