Stop to Relax and enjoy a cup of Coffee.

People wanting a rest stop while touring the "Witch City" can go into this coffeehouse - order a coffee/other beverage/ relax/sit / read the newspaper or discuss their day. Coffede (had black) was very good and reasonable price. Service is fast.

This cafe has great espresso drinks (I love the caramel/chocolate latte) and lots of space in their beautiful brick-walled shop, with local art on the walls and very cool light shades! We love stopping in here to chat and read.

The Big Kahuna iced coffee alone is enough for me to give this place five stars, but in addition to their great coffee drinks, they also have lunches that are just the perfect portion at the right price. You can pick a menu salad or sandwich, or build your own! Great customer service! Give it a try instead of the... More

The baristas at Front St were friendly and helpful, and the funky atmosphere was perfect to cheer us up on a cool, rainy, and windy early summer evening. We had a hecla (an "inside-out cinnamon roll") that was delicious, and I've never had better steamed soy milk (I ordered a soy café au lait). Would definitely visit again.

I love their coffee. I use to go in there every Sunday when I lived in Salem and read my paper and just relax. Very cool place and they also have sandwiches. I love their chicken salad on scali bread with tomato...very good and very fresh! Love the art work on the walls and they change them out.

When I am in town, I am a frequent customer of Front Street. And when I forget my cash (like I often do), there is an ATM at the corner. I love the staff, the atmosphere, and the offerings, both in hot beverages and food. I love that Chris uses the space to promote local artists and occasional live music.... More

I stop by here nearly everyday on my way to work to enjoy their excellent coffee and sit and read for a bit. The staff is always very friendly, but not overly formal, which is exactly what I want in a coffee shop. The music they play is always great, which is a huge plus compared to many coffee shops....
