This shop gets very crowded but for good reason, it is that good. The coffee is delicious! The staff was very friendly and the service was quick.

Misha's is always busy (but very efficient). The coffee flavors are all exceptional, and there are delicious pastries (while they last). People come here to hang out, grab a quick cup-full, or use the wireless access.

Each time we went there it was busy. The coffee is great, which explains why there is always a line.

The staff here are like a happy and welcoming family. Wonderful people. The coffee is excellent, and many of their pastry choices (provided by outside vendors) are good. This place is very non-corporate. Hang out as long as you want, nobody will ever bother you....More

Stopped in with a small group, while in town on business. The location was conveniently located close to our hotel. The cappuccino was great and the place was quiet and comfortable. Very easy to have a good conversation.

Misha's coffee has stood the test of time for many years now. It never disappoints. Get a drink for now and a bag of coffee for home. They also have tasty, freshly made, baked goods to go with your coffee.

The prices on the menu are for their packaged coffee beans. Their price for a cup of coffee is comparable to other cafes.
