My sister & I have been stopping in here for years, for hot drinks, Italian sodas ... maybe a pastry or slice of quiche. It's order-at-the-counter, with a basic selection of decent coffees, teas & other non-alcoholic drinks. Pastries are ok, not awesome; same with the quiche. It's a very small place with several small tables, some comfy couches, books,... More

Always looking for cool little local coffee shops to hang out in. The morning we went we enjoyed good cappuccinos and delicious quiche while a local man played the piano.

So why is it that when you decide to stop in a coffee shop that the staff who work there are perturbed that you might be interrupting their day by stepping in the door. This happened when a co-worker and I walked into Mr. Toots for a quick meeting on Tuesday morning April 25th. We marched up to the counter... More

You can get your java jolt here, lots of good coffee drinks. Also, offers some pastries, cookies, cakes and slices of pie. You can sit on the balcony with beach and river views. Also, has board games you can play.

You see a Starbucks on every corner! But, what if you don't want Starbucks? Toots is a local coffee bar located upstairs above Margaritaville. The coffee is always good and many of the snacks are homemade and tasty. It is a unkempt style place that could use a little face lift but despite that fault, it is generally cozy. The... More

This was one of the best cups of hot chocolate I have ever had and it came with fresh whipped cream on top. Staff was so nice and friendly. Great place for a raining day to read a good book. Upstairs and I don'r think there is an elevator.

Great coffee and great atmosphere! The back balcony overlooks the beach of this 2nd story coffee shop. The staff is always friendly, too.

In the land of really high quality coffee the coffee at Toot's was ok. Nothing special and no depth of flavor to their organic coffee. It simply tasted flat and burned. The spot is hard to find but if you need a caffeine fix then head upstairs near margaritaville. This is a good spot for a simple coffee.

One of the attractions of Mr. Toots is that it's on the second floor and has a nice balcony and view. It's a very small place (balcony included), but has a great vibe that embodies the Capitola atmosphere. The coffee and pastries are good and they have something for everybody. If you want to escape for a bit and just... More
