coffee, study, snacking

Its a nice relaxed atmosphere. During peak hours its a bit loud but there is always seats by the window or a table. There are tables towards the back of the place if you want to bring your laptop and get some work or studying done. The coffee is not so expensive and they have some sandwich, panini... read more

A little expensive for what you get. Cute cafe in a great location. Plenty of parking and friendly service.

This place has a strange decoration and somehow it looks like it's floor is dirty. It is basically a place to have a cup of coffee while you use internet but it really doesn't have anything special to talk about it. I think they could be so much better about the decor. Making the decoration more inviting would really bring... More

Nice, independent place with good, hot coffee, generous portion and friendly service. Tables and chairs all over for your comfort. Not rushed so you can really relax, check your email or whatever. Great desserts too!

My first turnoff was that the restaurant (a coffee shop, mind you) did not open until 8 AM. I arrived at opening for a business-related meeting, so thankfully I was planning to be here awhile. Initially there was only one person working. The computers were down, so the poor woman was trying to keep everything together. It took 30 minutes... More

very nice breakfast drinks and panini-.friendly staff, pleasant seating choices. Only two other people there at opening time. Only negative- the floor was not clean. We entered at opening- 8am and there was egg, bread crumbs and paper bits on the floor.

Always looking for healthy options that are tasty when I go out for lunch. I ordered the sun dried tom wrap. It was just a turkey wrap with a sun dried tom dressing drizzled inside. It didn't have a ton of meat inside but it was filling for a lunch. I would def. Order it again. And the Tuscana latte... More

Used to love this place, but my last two visits were uninspiring. Long, long line on a weekday morning around 10am. Then the milk used for my cappuccino was sour. Barrista claimed "Oh, it's not sour. I just scorched it." Okay, um, so refund? replace? anything? You served it anyhow when you knew you scorched it? He offered to do... More

Clifton Park is a quintessential suburb. That's not bad, just a statement of fact. Like most suburbs, CP has most of the "chain" eateries....the corporate, cookie-cutter establishments nearly devoid of personality. Then there is Mocha Lisa's...a real gem smack in the middle of strip mall central. Upon walking in you forget you are in a strip mall and rather imagine... More

When your shopping at a strip mall it's great to have a cozy place to get warm and relax. I enjoyed my latte a blend of expresso and berries. Although the wait was longer than I would have wished for at 2 pm, I'm glad I gave it a chance. The cost is right up there but again for a... More
