TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

Nothing gets more local than this Big Bend area favorite.

Providing locally roasted coffee, brewed teas, and freshly baked pastries, Red Eye Coffee has been serving Tallahassee and the community since 2004.

Since the pandemic, Red Eye Coffee has implemented new safety changes and even partnered with Street Chefs to create the Breakfast Club, where patrons can enjoy food and beverages without leaving their homes.

Now, Red Eye Coffee has opened its indoor seating, but they're still taking precautions.

"Like every other small business, COVID has definitely been a struggle to say the least," said Daniella Vintimilla, the manager of Red Eye in Capital Circle. "But I know everyone is feeling that in their own way, any shape or form. For Red Eye, it's also been an opportunity to be able to serve our community better. We had a really good cleaning process, and now we're just doubling our efforts, making sure every nook and cranny gets extra clean, just to make sure customers and employees alike feel safe."

Vintimilla says guests are welcomed to stop by and dine-in, but are asked to limit their visit below two hours.
