Great experience

Located right in the heart of Berea Kentucky , is this really cool coffee shop. They feature lots of variety of coffee drinks, teas, sandwiches, muffins and desserts. Great atmosphere. It was warm enough to sit out front and enjoy my coffee and enjoy the beautiful Berea campus.

The service can be less than great. The coffee and pastries are good. located on The Square in Berea. Parking is best behind the shop (there is a back door). Tables are located in front and behind the cafe as well. Seating during peak times (10 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.) is at a premium. Once you visit BC&T, you will... More

We visited BC&T on a recent visit to Berea. It was drizzly, cool day, so coffee sounded great! The coffee was good, but the service was slow. The atmosphere was nice with lots of seating at tables and cozy chairs and sofas.

This was my first visit to Berea and I went to this establishment thanks to a suggestion of the staff members at the near Boone Tavern Hotel. This is a comfy place, which seems to be popular among locals, visitors, and particularly students and staff from Berea College across the street. The selection of pastries looked appetizing and the selection... More

I have been here many times before, if you are looking for a place to hang out this is the place, it is laid back. But, if you are looking for actual good coffee and food dont go here. First, it is rare for me to write a bad review, i am even more likely to rate an independent place... More

The service was very slow and not many selections for food and on the expensive side. I probably would not return

This is very much a place to hang out for locals, students, and visitors to Berea. The staff are typically friendly and knowledgable about their products. The prices and food are decent. The coffee could be better, but overall it is well worth a visit.

Funky spot at the square for coffee or a panini. Average service and pricing. Fit the artistic scene.

Located beside historic Boone Tavern, this is a great place for lunch or a cup of coffee or tea. The food offerings -- quiche, bakery items -- were delicious. Very lively with students from nearby Berea College. Nice vibe.

This shop is the perfect place to hide away and relax on a lazy afternoon. They carry quite a variety of teas, which are self serve, and a pretty good selection of pastries to go with them. The seasonal drink offerings looked good, but I did not try them.
