Best lattes in the area

Don't be misled by the name of this place, which sounds like it might only feature desserts. We had breakfast here every day because the lattes were outstanding and the menu was varied and reasonable.

I came to this place with a couple of friends and the experience was awesome. It's like a small town Panera but better. The cheesecakes are to die for... Their coffee beverages, sandwiches, salads, soups and so on. They serve breakfast all day long till 5PM which is when they close.

Nothing says Takoma like CCC. Healthy food, scrumptious desserts, friendly service, free parking. Eat inside or out. Free wifi too.

My wife and I try to get here most weekend mornings. Over time we have come to enjoy seeing the hardworking owners Caitlin and Megan and their dedicated staff. From always cheerful order takers to talented baristas - their commitment to friendly and efficient service never waivers. The large contingent of regulars is a testament to their quality food and...

I didn't visit this place for ages because I thought it was just cheesecake. But at some point I discovered that lunch was available, and I found that their sandwiches and hot-food options are perfect Takoma Park fare. It reminds me a lot of Savory, which used to occupy this space. Same casual atmosphere, healthy and yummy food, and reasonable... More

Wonderful place to meet for coffee and snack or breakfast or lunch. They serve a nice brunch on the weekends. 1/3 of a mile ( easy 8 minute walk) from Takoma DC metro.

This restaurant is ideally located for those living in the vicinity. It's a cozy restaurant and could play a central place in this progressive and vital community. BUT the restaurant offers nothing but unhealthy choices. It replaced a prior restaurant with a wide selection of vegetarian dishes with one that has nothing but processed meats and sugar-packed deserts. It would... More

This is the neighborhood spot I've been looking for and I'm not even in this neighborhood. The 20 minute drive will be made many times in the future. Breakfast was simple but so many other places figure out ways to mess it up. Bagel toasted just right, eggs fresh and hot, bacon crisp, cheese to the right degree of melt,... More

This is my go-to coffeeshop in Takoma Park. Chill atmosphere, tables and couches available for sitting, wifi connection. The cheesecake is excellent and the coffee is solid. A perfect spot for meeting friends or getting a little work done. If you find yourself passing by, grab a slice of cheesecake to go - totally worth it. There is parking in... More

I was there several times, the service and food are consistently mediocre and overpriced. The cheesecake is ok, sandwiches not really. I'm not sure where the other glowing reviews are coming from.
