Very disappointing changes since first visit

I was the first person to write a review of the Cafe via Roma. That was back in 2009. Regrettably, things have gone downhill since then, as I discovered on a road trip from my home in northern Illinois - a trip I took simply to have a great espresso drink and excellent food.

If you are looking for decent coffee and some conversation close to the capital building, this is great. Parking out front is free but you are limited to 90 mins. Coffee was good, ground on site, and hot, perfect for the fall day I was there. A lot of regulars that show up every day to enjoy the same conversations... More

I've literally never written a review for a restaurant but this place is absurd. I grew up in Jefferson City and had two friends that worked here and spent a lot of time eating their delicious sandwiches and drinking their delicious coffee. So apparently this place has switched owners since I've left and this place is one of the worst... More

Have been there several times for the goat cheese salad and quiche but it was cold. Tomato basil soup was just tomato. Not certain I will go back.

Came here today, very quiet Saturday at 12:30. Still waiting after 20 mins for 2 sandwiches. They are in no hurry at all. Walls are all dented as are the tables. Final we asked for our sandwiches to go....wish we had gone to Kate and Ally's.....

The food is good the coffee is better. There's usually a nice selection of pastries and sandwiches. The prices are very reasonable. It's handy to the capitol. Nice friendly people.

My problem isn't with the food. It's with the way management treats people. Absolutely horrendous!! The woman is less than respectful, interrupted me several times, AND yelled at me for trying to apologize for a service miscommunication. I will NEVER give this establishment my business again, and I beg of you to do the same.

Stopped in by looking to pass the time before a meeting at the State office building. The staff and owner Audrey could not have been more Welcoming. Had the Love Potion #9 which is a dark chocolate, cherry and almond flavored coffee. It was excellent! So good it did not need cream or sugar. Was so impressed with the place... More
