Dunedin’s Art Smart Coffee and Gallery features coffee from fresh roasted beans and more eye candy than the day is long. Owner, Mario Gutiérrez serves up each iced coffee with love and pride making it with 2 shots espresso, milk and most importantly, the ice cubes are from fresh brewed coffee, so melting ice makes it even better.

The iced coffee has been voted “best iced coffee in Tampa Bay,” by Tampa Bay Magazine and featured in Southern Living magazine as “Florida’s Best Coffee.”

The walls are lined with vintage and contemporary art hand chosen by Gutiérrez, an expert in art and all things beautiful. There is something for everyone here in his eclectic collection.

 

Room after room, your eyes will never be bored with 3000 square feet of tasteful art.There is even a decent sized selection of books on art and also coffee table books for sale or to borrow in the portable library. With a nice coffee buzz, you can spend hours viewing art and reading about artists.

All this space and art are not wasted on coffee shop hours, for a relatively small fee you can rent the gallery to host an event. Birthday parties, wedding receptions, the possibilities are endless in this culturally rich coffee shop and gallery.
