“Real coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2015 NEW

If you're Australian and a coffee snob you'll know how hard it is to get a real coffee in the USA. It's impossible!

But The Thinking Cup is the real deal. Get your brew from here!!!

“Great coffee shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2015

Outside of Berkeley California I have yet to find such a great coffee shop. Fabulous lattes, great food, reasonably priced.

Really nice place with good coffees and also really good grilled cheese sandwich. The place has a really lovely atmosphere with great decor and the coffee is really good (including great latte art).

“Great coffee house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2015

The coffee and tea are excellent, as are the sandwiches. I had several types of chicken and turkey sandwiches and all were fine. The staff is friendly and moves the line quickly. One challenge is getting a seat, because it's pretty popular. All in all, a nice place to have a coffee and chat or read a book.

“Don't think twice, it's excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2015

So much better than one of the mindless coffee chain places, the breakfast here is actually better than their quite good coffee. The breakfast sandwich is great, and the quiche is also very good. This place gets crowded so if you can find a table, take it and hunker down. There is only counter service so don't go expecting table service.
