Coffee Tea and Me

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.

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.

A great coffee shop that features so much more than coffee. Lots of incredible crepes and empanadas to choose from.

I hate to write a not amazing review for a local place that had such potential, but after reading all of the positive reviews my husband and I stopped in here over the weekend for an afternoon tea/coffee break and were disappointed. The atmosphere is cool and has that relaxed, vintage vibe that I love, but the staff were really... More

Delicious food, including the all-day breakfast and homemade quiche and cakes. Also good tea and coffee - the latter comparing favourably with the genuine Italian versions. Friendly, cosy atmosphere.

On our way from Ogunquit ME to Boston, we stopped here for cofee, tea and pastries. My husband had the best blueberry muffin of his life. My only regret was that we did not sample breakfast and lunch items. Their menu of crepes and wraps etc was so creative and sounded so delicious.

I love hanging out in a coffee house and making an afternoon out it. I tried and was successful at this local coffee joint. I found the coffee to be good not fantastic but good. The sandwiches were made with care and the baked goods were delightful. The internet connection is without a complaint by me. Only issue I see... More

The owner of the shop is very enthusiastic about his products. I went there with my boyfriend and he ordered a coffee and I ordered a chai. My chai smelled really good but tasted like hot water, and my boyfriend's coffee was generic. Maybe there are better items there, but we weren't impressed.
