Coffee, tea and books.
A natural fit, don’t you think? 


NEW! Express coffee service - Pressed for time? Pull right up in our parking beside the coffee shop and get a brew (or two, or three, or four) to go! Call 941-702-5859 with your order and we'll bring it out!

Let’s talk about our coffee. We are partners of Buddy Brew, a specialty coffee roaster who, like us, believes 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, wines, craft beers, and other beverages that you can enjoy--either on-site, or you can also take them home with you.

We also have an assortment of locally curated, artisanal "light bites" from Boar's HeadGlenn Family Bakery, and more! 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 for our market, 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 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!



Craft Beers
