Quirky and cute

I love going here instead of chain coffee shops because it's adorable, unusual, and seems a little bit like having Camberville in Melrose. Just right for this suburban urbanite.

This coffeehouse has multiple items on the menu for breakfast, brunch, snacks. And a variety of inventive and creative coffee flavors. I am a coffee purist so I stick with the espressos and lattes so I can't say much about the flavored coffees they offer. They have a variety of baked goods as well and I like their baklava. If...

Right in the heart of Melrose, this coffee shop is not only a quiet place to think, but also a place full of delicious pastries such as Nutella coffee cake. Also, they have drinks like bubble tea, coffee, caramel macchiato, smoothies, and raspberry lime rickys. All in all, Coffee Tea and Me is one of the best places in town.

I visit Coffee, Tea & Me at least once per week -- and more if I can. I absolutely love the coffee. And the bake goods are outstanding (and minus preservatives). Things to try include the crepes, coffee cake and cinnamon scones. Plus, know this ... if Emily or Sarah prep your order, it'll be perfect!

I was intrigued with the lovely pictures of this unique coffee house in downtown town Melrose. Pictures showed a beautiful mug of my favorite brew, cappuccino. To my dismay, even though I said that I planned to stay in the coffee house for my brew & food, my overpriced, mediocre coffee was served in a paper cup. The scrambled egg... More

My go to place for coffee while downtown. Pastries are very good. Breakfast sandwiches made to order, not pre-fab like the big chains. Atmosphere is cozy and they always are playing good tunes.

This café is a very nice place in downtown Melrose. Whether you want a cup of coffee or a light meal, everything is tasty and fresh. It's a nice spot to sit and relax, though relatively small, not a lot of tables. I would definitely recommend it.
