Great coffee!

My husband is a big coffee drinker and liked it a lot! We do not have this coffee at home so we went for him to try it.

Located in the Hotel Alex Johnson, this is now a Starbucks. Not a criticism, just a note to let those looking for Seattle's Best Coffee not to waste their time.

I think they have way to much going on here. If they want to be taken seriously as a coffee house, then they should stick to coffee. Now on to the coffee problems. They offer nothing with caramel? My husband ended up with a mocha nightmare that looked more like dark brown mud and tasted like semi sweet chocolate chalk.... More

We were given certificates to eat/drink here by the Hotel Alex Johnson. Staff was okay, not rude but not friendly. We felt more like we were a part of an assembly line for them.

The Seattle's Best coffee shop was convenience. It was located in our hotel. The coffee was good and hot.

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.

Cheeder, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are currently changing from a Seattle's Best to a Starbuck to offer more of a selection of breakfast items to our customers. Hopefully next time you are in the area you stop by and see us again. More
