Banyan Coffee and Tea Company - St Petersburg, FL
My family and I made our way over to the Banyan Coffee and Tea Company in downtown St Pete. I have been wanting to try this for awhile, and I have to say I was glad we made it over this last Saturday morning. First off, the decor inside is very charming and comfortable and I love the long fans hanging from the ceiling. For seating, we could sit at the bar, at some small tables, a booth, or outside on the sidewalk.
We placed our order at the counter. For drinks we ordered the cappuccino, which came in a nice big mug and was deliciously smooth. Along with that, we had the scones which were filled with strawberries and raspberries and had some whipped cream on the side. The scones went perfect with our coffee. Although we weren't interested that morning, they do offer a selection of breakfast sandwiches or breakfast burritos that sounded good. The service was very friendly and helpful there.
Banyan is open until about two in the afternoon and they are open Monday through Saturday. However, one of the girls working there said they would soon be open on Sundays. Also, they offer a lunch selection of sandwiches, soups, or salad, along with various bakery items. This is a very comfortable atmosphere to bring a book along and pass a couple of hours.
