After three tries we decided Crave is just not our cup of Joe. The espresso drinks have an odd, licorice aftertaste, and the shop is not especially clean. The staff is friendly and helpful.

My carmel latte was perfect! My daughter enjoyed a frappacino and the ambience was great. Loved the outdoor seating too.

Yes, all of the reviews about the fabulous coffee drinks are true; however, I must also point out that Crave has fantastic pastries (on par with the Beyond Bread, the best of the best, I think, and Babylon Market good, if we're talking baklava).

This is by far the best place to have the perfect latte and beyond. I love the relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of the owners.

A friend told me their coffee was good. It definetly was. Had a Honeycomb Latte and it was great. Their roast has that chocolatey hint of flavor that I really like.
