Very good coffee and environment

I definitely enjoyed the coffee, it was well done, but my favorite was the environment, a place to relax, study and also spend time with friends.

I went "café shopping" in Gainesville this weekend, getting the vibe of different locations. Overall, Maude's Classic Cafe won on many levels. There's indoor AND outdoor seating, with a cool variety of chairs/booths/tables. Inside, there are board games that would be ideal for a casual afternoon hangout or night adventure. There's a schedule for live music performances, and the coffee... More

Stopped in for morning coffee & breakfast. Order at the counter & there is both indoor & outdoor seating. We sat in because it was a little chilly. Interior a little dark & could have been a little cleaner.

Instead of Starbucks across the street, we came here to get a coffee drink and dessert bite while visiting Gainesville city centre. The café itself looks nice and has a lot of charm but the patio just outside is great--people passing by, playing cards and socializing is a nice atmosphere. The honey vanilla coffee shake (forget the exact name) was... More

We like to try unique places and opted for this coffee shop, instead of the Starbucks across the street. I promised my daughter to treat her to one of the vanilla espresso shakes and once we got there, we couldn't resist the chocolate peanut butter cake. Both were yummy, but I got sticker shock at the $20.00 bill for for... More

We came here to get a coffee while visiting Gainesville and the location is convenient in the city centre. The café itself looks nice and has a lot of charm. The coffee was also quite good but nothing special. I did not like the service as it was not particularly friendly nor seemed the girl behind the counter interested in... More

We were staying at a nearby B&B and really enjoyed going to Maude's for sandwiches, salads, excellent coffees and other treats. Try a "Drunken Maude" coffee on a hot afternoon! Wonderful place!

Went once, out of curiosity. Shall never return... Kids working there are really rude and that makes it impossible to enjoy the nice ambience.

The quiche was good but I will not return as the music was so loud and annoying. Not to mention the host or the cashier her attitude was blah. We passed on coffee because we didn't want to give them any more of our money. We went to Starbucks right across the street & the moment we hit the door,... More

I ate at Maude's over super bowl weekend, for brunch. My friend and I split a Pancho Villa. It was delicious and the coffee was excellent. I had an iced mocha cafe latte. It's a little bit kitsch in it's attempt to be hip and cool. The deco and even the particular style of the employees is all a little... More
