Lakeland Public Library FL

First time here last Saturday, it’s across the parking lot from the Polk Museum of Art. Huge place with pop machine at entrance. Several desks with outlets for laptops and whatever.

Well laid out open feeling to this library. Impressive reading area with glass window facing Lake Morton across the street. A pleasant place tor work or pleasure.

Mitchells Coffee Shop Downtown Lakeland FL

First time in Downtown Lakeland this morning. While walking around watching the Saturday Morning Market vendors get set up I stumbled upon this gem. Mitchells is a welcome contrast to the Starbucks routine, a quiet easy-going home-town place with wooden tables and chairs.

Several artistic creations for sale on the walls, flanking a tall bookcase with reading materials. Large dining floor with several tables. Order and pay at the counter, take a number to your table and they will bring your order to you.

Although at over eight bucks for a huge lemonade glass and a bare ham omelet with no toast or potatoes on the side is a bit high, the experience was worth it. The tasty omelet arrived quickly. Will try something else next time.
