The facility was nice and well groomed. Convenient location with outside seating. We had cappuccinos that were average in quality.

Had a great matcha latte that was the perfect temperature and had great flavour. The barista working seemed new but was great and very friendly.

While a bit more expensive and more glamorous that Revel in the town square, we found a service with a smile, comfortable sitting and quite a good and VERY large "cortado" we like the old store feeling and music

Stopped by for my afternoon expresso "pick me up" - tasty. I was surprised they did not sell bulk coffee because the coffee aroma was delicious

Balzacs is right downtown- a great stop for a rest between shopping and theatre. They roast their own coffee beans and the coffee is wonderful!

I love Balzac's coffee and also they do a great lemon tart. It seems like a popular hangout for locals and is a very pleasant place to while away an hour reading or people watching.

I absolutely love Balzacs and have coffee there at least twice a week. The perisian mist tea is the best thing I've ever tasted.
