Could be better... much better

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... read 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.

Best part of my day is the coffee at 7:30AM at BC&T. I have observed that if you have not found your space by 8:35 you will probably be standing awaiting a table or seat at the counter. Great morning vibes, pastries and fresh coffee.

This is a very cool coffee shop that also has a variety of pastries and sandwiches which are quite tasty. Crowd is an interesting mixture of college students and older tourists. Would highly recommend it.
