Great place to get a nice coffee, tea, or iced drink. I love the iced Chai tea as well as the birthday cake latte. Even with construction going on there is plenty of space to work and relax. The free WiFi and and relaxing atmosphere make it my favorite place to do emails and catch up with customers.

Outstanding friendly service. The Alex Johnson is the historic icon in downtown Rapid City. It's a great place to meet for business or see the world travelers.

Pretty much the same as every Seattle's Best Coffee, not the cheapest coffee in the area, but still pretty good. It is attached to the Hotel Alex Johnson which is neat to walk through the lobby. Great stop after walking around downtown.

The service was OK. The food selection limited. This is the breakfast offering in the Alex Johnson and it is very limited. It is bright and convenient with lots of space.

This must be the most basic of basic restaurants. The menu is unimaginative and the mass-produced food lacks any kind of presentational or taste appeal whatsoever. The premises are clean, well-lit and adequately furnished. The commendable qualities end here.

Dear Silver60's, thank you for taking time to write a review. I am sorry that you felt that our menu was unimaginative. We are currently going thought a renovation to become a Starbucks and offer a wider variety of products to our customers. Hopefully next time you are in Rapid you will give us another try! More

We are always looking for a good espresso or cup of joe - here is it. Great location since it's in the Alex Johnson Hotel in the middle of downtown Rapid City - tons of room, clean, bathrooms downstairs. Free Wi-fi. Open later than other shops (we went right before 9pm). Excellent coffee.
