Went here for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. The peppermint mocha espresso was yummy. I would recommend it.
The ambiance is very warm, with nice decor, comfortable seating and good music, but the pastries and service are not very good. They really could work to improve the pastry selection and customer service. The pastries look and taste like Costco quality, and I've never gotten a greeting or thanks from the staff.
We stopped in here at least once a day over a recent weekend. Service was good and prompt. The coffee was much weaker than you would expect at a coffeehouse, but the iced latte and chai were both passable. Seats are comfortable, including outdoor seating on Main Street while the weather is nice.
Love this place and will be back! Rachel the girl that served us and made out drinks, was one of the most personal pea pole we met while in Madison! A real joy to meet and she is the reason we will return...even though the coffee was great too!
Snarky, unfriendly barrista insisted that a two-shot espresso meant using the same grounds with twice the water. Their service is uneven - some good staff and some stupid staff, like this one, and the espresso, made by an automatic machine with no tamping, is mediocre. Obviously they don't train their staff well. But it's a nice location with good seating... More
We visited this establishment while vacationing in Madison, and were hoping for real coffee. The cafe au lait was prepared with weak coffee pumped out of a thermos and then topped with lukewarm milk. The milk wasn't steamed, the watery coffee tasted like it had been stagnating for a few hours, it was expensive for not using espresso nor steaming... More
Hot and thirsty, we ventured in here and were pleasantly surprised. Hubby and I had fruit blast slushy things that were reasonably priced and really good. Nice atmosphere, good selection of coffees and you could by tea in bulk. Lots of places to sit and chill out. Nicer that Starbucks and was nice to support local business.
