Friendly staff, interesting menu and great pastries to go with coffee or tea. Locally owned and all the baked goods are freshly baked.

This is a great place to start your day. They serve fresh roasted coffee that is rich but never burned or bitter. Always have cool music playing, great crepes cooked to order, and the nutella coffee cake is flavorful, tender and not too sweet.

Coffee Tea & Me is by far my favorite coffee shop in the Melrose area. They treat you right, they remember your name, they care about their customers and they know how to keep you coming back for more. I come here whenever I am working in the area and I always receive the same wonderful experience! The coffee here... More

Great intimate place to sit and enjoy light breakfast Eggs to muffins and all in between Not traditional but great tasting and filling. Coffee is outstanding fresh ground and blends are wonderful. Eat in take out both equally good.

Love getting coffee here. I usually try one of the revolving barista recommendations and I'm never disappointed. My kids love the crepes here too. Be prepared though it's small inside.

Always a great cuppa Joe and delicious empanadas. Personable service and free wifi. Tight quarters but still a sweet place.

It can get hot in here and you come out smelling like the food because it's small. That said...delicious coffee roasts. Love the staff picks. Gluten free choices fyi.

Friendly service, great coffee choices, and a wonderful selection of home baked goodies. Their hand-crafted crepes are delectable. It's such a nice change to go to this small, family-owned coffee shop rather than the other standard chain with it's stale pastries.

I've been here twice. Had chai iced tea and a smoothie. I like the atmosphere. There are a few tables outside. The food looks good-my friend had the spinach pie and enjoyed it. Next time I'll try a crepe.

Thank Tonsoffuntravel
