Best coffee in Berea at around Starbucks prices. With a nice atmosphere and home made food, BC&T is a great stop to make.

I stopped in with my family for breakfast mid morning and had to wait in line for about ten minutes. The breakfast sandwiches must be pre made elsewhere, because we were informed they were out of sausage, egg and cheese biscuits, but did have egg and cheese or sausage. When we asked for mustard, they seemed confused about whether or... More

Berea Coffee & Tea have a nice menu for beverages. They have different types of coffee and tea and their interior too is really nice. It is a good place to sit in with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and get your work done. Their sandwiches are a little expensive but they taste good. They also have a... More

Their food is quite expensive for what they offer. They offer pretty good food but not for the price. It is relatively affordable for the average person but not college students

It was very comfortable and relaxed-Couches and Internet access. Service was quick and the panini was excellent. Many different kinds of coffee and flavored syrups!

Had coffee and fig scone the other day. Both were very good, atmosphere is nice, just seems a little expensive. Would definitely return again.

I'm basing my "very good" rating on ambience, service, and potential. I got a caramel latte which was way too sweet, but some people like them that way. I didn't specify so I don't want to judge based on that. I think the coffee under the cloying syrup flavor was probably very good. The shop is clean and has a... More

I have to start with the most memorable, the two people working. I think both were younger college students, either way they worked together with amazing synergy, he would take care of customers for awhile and then they would switch. Both were incredibly considerate and patient with customers even during one point when it got really busy, the two handled... More

Another location I was going to eat at was closed so I came here...Berea is a liberal arts college town so a coffee house goes along with the territory. This is a comfortable restaurant with the right mix of tables for dining and computer work and couches for lively conversation or cozy contemplation. The music overhead ranges from Earth, Wind,...

I've been to many coffee emporiums over decades in many parts of the world. I have pretty discriminating taste in coffee and can spot a skilled barista. Berea's my home, so it would be wonderful if this place actually had good coffee. The coffee, whether you get a house blend, espresso, latte or cappuccino will not excite your taste buds.... More
