I have been to this tiny cafe [ reminiscent of a place one might have found years ago in the East Village] a few times. The counter people are respectful and helpful. The coffees are way strong..in fact, too strong.FOR ME. But that's me and I can't fault them. I suppose CAFFEINE is what energizes... read more

It's got the best coffee, hands down...but it's a college coffee shop and could be "scary" for regular types/business folks. However...it's worth a visit and I would highly recommend the coffee, but as others mentioned if you are shy and not adventurous, get the coffee to go!

I went to this place because my 16 year begged me. We were there early (7am) just like I thought it would be it is very hipster over price coffee. It took forever only one person in front of us and it was about 10minute wait. They do not take credit/atm cards so I had to use the machine in... More

The coffee is without a doubt the finest in the area. But the desserts have had freezer burn a couple of times so I stay away from them now. There's not a lot of seating there, and usually several smokers sitting around on the outdoor seats. Grab a cup to go and you won't be sorry.

It's hard not to judge a book by it's cover here. We drove 30 minutes to check this place out and we probably won't be returning. When we walked in, nearly every single person turned their head to stare at us with cold, smileless faces. We felt like we did not fit in and to make matters worse, felt extremely... More

I'm spoiled by the specialty latte drinks here. I can't have one from anywhere else because they just don't stand up to the quality and tastiness of a Klekolo latte. The lattes can be ordered hot, iced or as a "smooshie" (what most people would call a smoothie). They always have a large variety of coffees on tap, for special... More

I (and many of my friends) have been getting a cup of joe at this place almost since its day one nearly 20 years ago. Still the best coffee around, slightly off the beaten path of Main Street in Middletown, but so worth rounding the corner onto Court Street. The vibe is wonderful ... funky and welcoming ... whether you... More
