We stopped here for coffee and water to go after getting a recommendation for it from the bookseller at the Book Bin. I really wished that we had time to sit down with our coffees because it has a nice ambience. The coffee was good, too. Nice counter person, talented and engaged barista, fine looking menu, award-winning art. What's not... More

Very good coffee and pleasant atmosphere. The locals go here and everyone is very friendly. We had a specialty drinks and the owner delivered them to the table. We are going back for more today before we "hit the road". We went here because we didn't want a chain store coffeehouse. We were very pleased.

We were disappointed in the bagels - and the very limited menu and seating. Prices were high for the food received.

Great coffee and tea! With free wifi, it is a great place to go get some work done. Can be noisy at times since it is downtown and right next to Willamette University. Bagels are amazing and strangely, the best lox and cream cheese bagel I've ever had. The owner is very nice and the employees definitely go out of... More

I'll be the first to admit that Gov's is my little home away from home...but I see the same people in there almost every time so I know I am not the only one. I have probably tried a Dirty Chai at every shop and stand in Salem and no one makes it quite as good as the Governor's Cup.... More

We only tried the coffee. It was good. Looked like other tasty items were available but we can't rate anything else. (Asked for a tottie shot- they don't make them)

I love supporting this independent coffee roaster. They make excellent coffee and the atmosphere is very funky in a comfortable homey way. They never make you feel rushed if you want to sit and chat at length.

I am a grad student and when I need to do some studying I know that Governor's Cup has the perfect ( and best) coffee to accompany me. I park myself at one of the tables( all have access to internet :)) and work away! Very comfortable and the best coffee I have found in all of Salem! I also... More

Good brew on a winter day, is there anything like it? This shop has a great variety of different coffees and edibles. I try to stop here once a week for a pick-me-up. A great local hangout and a place to meet friends. Try it out, you will like it too.
