Basically serves only coffee. Yes it has other drinks but the prices seem high for what you get. Found it very noisy when trying to visit with friends.

I was here about a year and a half ago. They've moved to the other side of the building now. Little more room and the coffee counter is in front instead of the back. Rustic looking, I think on purpose. Not real fancy. Coffee is good as most better than some. Usually staffed by local college kids I think. Generally... More

Staying in Macomb for two nights (from London, UK), it was great to find a proper good coffee shop. They have a massive selection of coffee flavors for those who are into that - personally, I stuck to a normal Americano which was of a very high standard and very good value for money. There is a large seating area... More

Could have been better, but for the price it was okay. A bit out dated and if they would invest a few grand, the place would be amazing. It is such a historic building anyway, why not make it look that way?

The concept of Sullivan Taylor Coffee House couldn't be any better but it sure could be a lot more if the right person was willing to spend a little time, a little money, and a little effort. It could really be a "unforgettable" college town coffee house instead of just a mediocre run of the mill one! Get some new... More

Very nice staff and a homey, scruffy atmosphere. Pastries and cold drinks, too. Good strong coffee for coffee drinkers and all the bells-and-whistles froufrou for the rest.

Perhaps what one would expect a coffee house to be like - if you're on the Berkeley campus in California. A good location in the center of this mid-western Illinois town, close enough to Chicago to know that escape to civilization is a reasonable Amtrak ride away. Coffee at the Sullivan Taylor Coffee House is acceptable and as hot as... More

This is the best coffee shop, a la civilization, in Macomb. The coffee is good, the chicken salad sandwich excellent, and the atmosphere is good. The only down side...if you want to park yourself on the uber comfy sofa in back...don't...it's filthy.

Not that nice of a decor but it is homey- the reason to go is for the nice service- everyone that works there is so friendly and helpful- quite impressive staff.
