They make a mean coffee/latte/whatever you need. Worth the price to help a local business! Not a lot of seating, but it creates a cozy feel.

The titles of the different drinks are my favorite thing about this place! The drinks themselves are fantastic but I loved the way it used titles of classic books instead of calling them latte, cappuccino, or mocha. So creative!!

Our hotel did not have breakfast, so we stopped at Crow About It. I had a regular coffee, and thought it was excellent. The muffins were also very good, and they even made a chocolate milk for my son. The price was about what I would expect to pay in a coffee shop. My only real complaint would be that... More

We were having a family reunion in TC with 11people. We arrived late at the condo, so we didn't have any food for the morning. The next morning two of us went to Crow About It Coffee & Cakes. We almost cleared them out of their breakfast food. We had great scones, fantastic croissants filled with Nuttella and others with... More

Dependably fresh and predictibly good. This restaurants is filled with regulars and it shows. A lot of socializing and pleasantries. A bit older and signs of wear but the food has a way of making up for that.

Crow about it is one of those places you HAVE to find...great coffee, home-baked goodies and REAL atmosphere, as opposed to the "chain" coffee places. I have always been greeted, had fantastic pastries and other goodies and if they didn't have what I wanted out, they went to the back to check and usually scored big! I can't say enough,... More

Looking forward to a nice local place, a pastry and some coffee for my husband. Very disappointed. First the positives: nice set up, very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Now the negatives....everything else. The wait was way too long...very slow service and not very friendly and very expensive (even by TC standards). Only three different muffins and some cookies, no other... More

Food is great when they haven't run out, the coffee is excellent, the guys in the shop are friendly but the tall chick taking orders, wow ... she's in the wrong business. A hint of snippy and subtlety condescending. I would have come back every morning during my stay were it not for her.
