Stayed at the Alex Johnson, so this coffee shop was very convenient,, They are open to 10 pm, so grabbing a late night latte and some dessert was also a nice option. Staff very friendly.

I go to Seattle's Best every other Friday for their coffee. The service is great and they always get my order correct. The lobby is huge and has plenty of room for work or just meeting up.

For a place to sit down on a cold day and enjoy something warm, this place hits the spot! (I have another favorite spot, but I won't mention it here. That wouldn't be fair.) Muffins can be warmed on request - or if they ask you, which they did before I even thought of it. While I do know Starbuck's... More

I am not one for visiting and lining the pockets of companies like Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Costa, etc but were staying in the Alex Johnson hotel and this was the only place we could get breakfast. The vanilla chai latte was delicious, and the breakfast muffin, which seems an odd concoction, was actually not bad. They were very busy for... More

The employees of this store on the morning of Oct 1 failed to reach the standards of Seattle's Best and their corporate owner, Starbucks. I was greeted cheerfully, and my order was taken quickly. However, I was not given a receipt when I made my transaction, and when I went back no more than four customers later asking for my... More

We ate in here as staying in Hotel and wanted a quick breakfast. We had an egg breakfast sandwich which was a muffin with some strange egg patty in it which had been microwaved. Was truly horrid. Staff were friendly and helpful though.

Stayed at AJ's for a few nights on vacation, so this was my first stop every morning. The staff was always very quick, efficient and friendly. The coffee is very good as were the coffee-cake muffins. I appreciated the buy one get one that they offer hotel guests on coffe/tea.

Quickly and well made. The biggest seattle's best coffee in the world (for whatever that's worth). Convenient if you're staying in the Alex Johnson hotel.

I think that it has the best coffee in downtown Rapid CIty. Service was slow both mornings of my visit. There was only one person working behind the counter and the line was long. Locals receive discounts. Hotel patrons get two for one coffee's regardless of size. Prices are reasonable.
