As I was talking to Carrie (pictured), a very friendly face behind the counter, knowing her coffee stuff as I experienced it just the other day as she patiently consulted a costumer. She told me that they have daily specials and they also cater to various functions.

You can create your own deli sandwiches for $5.75, their lunch menu range from just $4.25 – $6.25. They also have a fine selections of pastries and delicious baked goods that goes well with any of their gourmet coffee’s.

I have been numerous times at the local coffee house that is locally owned and operated independently by Mitch and Michelle Harvey since 1998. I love this atmosphere anytime I visit at breakfast time on Saturdays hanging out with fellow bloggers or twitter followers, meeting with business folks around lunch or hanging out on Friday nights listening to local artist.

At any time of the day or evening you visit Mitchell’s Coffee House,  you’ll find business people, local residents, college students and you don’t feel rushed – a totally relaxing though electrifying atmosphere.

A big plus for downtown restaurants is they offer free WiFi for internet surfers and business folks like myself. They also have a second location at MidFlorida Tower, 129 South Kentucky Ave, Lakeland, FL 33801. Telephone (863) 802-6866.

One Response to Promoting Local Business in Lakeland – Mitchell’s Coffee House

  1. Hey Petra! Great post! Supporting local businesses like Mitchell’s is the key to moving away from the big box anonymity that shopping and consumerism has cast upon us! Downtown Lakeland has done a great job, as has the folks running Buy Lakeland. Keep supporting the local folks, and they – in turn – will keep supporting you! Starbucks surely has little interest in your Lakeland Real Estate business!
