We were nervous at first that this wouldn't be in the most favorable part of town, but it ended up being in a super cute area of town. Very quiet. It was nice to sit out on the front porch area and enjoy our sandwiches and coffee. My husband particularly enjoyed their bread, and he's generally not a big fan... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch/snack and enjoyed everything I tried (a smoothie, a cookie, and the caprese salad). The caprese salad came with awesome bread! The ambiance is nice, the servers were friendly, and the surrounding area was quaint.

I dig this place. It's got good coffee and baked goods and I love to come on Sunday morning and have a cup of coffee and a snack and read a book. The servers don't get in a hurry and it won't do you any good to be in a hurry...so just know that in advance. Plan to visit when... More

This shop offered good coffee and high quality sweets for us. So glad we made the journey as a pitstop. It came highly recommended and I would love to return to try more of their food.

My fiancé and I visited here for dessert, which we did not need, after stuffing ourselves to the max for dinner across the street at El Rey Burrito lounge (see also my review of that restaurant). My fiancé had a hot chocolate, I had a flavored iced coffee and we each had a dessert, he some kind of cookie, and... More

Visited Aug 2nd. I had a peanut butter cookie and cheesecake (vanilla bean). Staff was kind caring and made sure we got what we wanted. I don't know our cashier's/waiter's name, but he had reddish hair and a beard. Nice place.

Sandwiches, pastries and bagels are all delish! Fresh, tasty and reasonably priced. Wonderful relaxed vibe in the cafe. However the coffee is awful-watery, weak and flavorless. If the owners are reading this-please, please, please revamp your coffee lineup. Also, give your customers real half and half. Using land o lakes individual creamer packets is terrible.

Love this place! Great sandwiches and iced tea in a cozy, pleasant space. Free wi-fi, too. Cloverdale is the coolest area in Montgomery, and Cafe Louisa is one of the coolest destinations in Cloverdale.
