I've been going to Maude's for almost 20 years. It's the perfect compliment to an evening out downtown, and a wonderful spot to gather with friends after a performance at the Hippodrome. Their desserts are excellent and the coffee is very good too. Relax in the courtyard and enjoy an evening out.

Across the street from Starbucks, Maude's is often overlooked, but worth it. Their coffee is nothing to rave about, but is always tasty and they have a variety of brews daily. There desserts push the experience over the edge; delicious cookies and cakes as well as savory quiches are great! A quirky, hipster study spot. Open late. Wine available.

Went there on a recent Sunday morning...it was so cute. Chalk board with coffee and food selections. Loved the outside seating too. Had a delicious breakfast sandwich.

It is a nice corner in town, with a good choice of coffees well prepared, some good eatings and a nice little open air space to sip .... if I were still in college I would spend time here instead than in a chain coffee house near by... ;-)

I had read the review about horrible snotty service and actually ask the Mgr about it when I order a whole mocha cheesecake for my husband's birthday. She assured me they were aware and had made some changes. I was impressed, the cheesecake was fabulous and i enjoyed the atmosphere and the service - We'll definitely go back to enjoy... More

Maude's has decent coffee and good desserts. The service is consistently poor. Their outside patio is wonderful for cool evenings with a perfect location for people watching. The rude attitude of everyone working there was hard to get past though.

Great place to meet and hang out. Excellent desserts and even better atmosphere. The staff is eager to please and very attentive, without being obtrusive.

Super spot to people watch, work on laptop (free wifi). A handful of smokers on the outside patio but covered canopy awnings and after you order a nice sandwich, they bring it out to you. Casual collegiate place.
