This place was really cute! We got the creme brulatte (yum!) and two waffles. They call them croiffles (they are a hybrid croissant and waffle). We tried the lemon blueberry and the churro, both were really good. We'd definitely go back!!

Great waffles and my favorite place while vivisting the tulip fest. Super clean coffee bar with vegan options. I had the banana pecan peanut butter waffle and my husband had the strawberry.

Lived this place. The staff were friendly and the coffee was amazing. I got a Vietnamese latte and a Brazen latte (chocolate and cayenne honey). Both were fantastic. Will come back here when in town.

I stopped here for a coffee to go while in town for business. There was a decent selection of coffee, and I had one made up relatively quickly. The staff was OK; they appeared to be very formal in going through the motions, and had...no interest in conversation, which I thought was a bit off-putting, especially since I was interested in just learning more about the place. That disappointment aside, the Americano coffee was good.More

I came into this coffee shop with a friend. Within five minutes of settling down and finding a table, I was asked to combine with my friend if things got busy- which they weren't. I was completely fine with this and agreed. Not even two...minutes later, I saw the worker whispering to another employee and both of them were staring right at me. I immediately combined to the table with my friend to make the worker happy. She raced over to the table I just left, wiped it down and moved it over. She then got very close to us and asked in a very rude way if we planned to buy anything because the seating was limited. I started telling her what I was thinking of getting and she stopped me in the middle of my sentence to say she didn't need to know what I was getting. I hadn't even had the chance to set down my things yet, and of coarse planned to go up an order as soon as I was given the chance to get situated. We ended up leaving right after this conversation. I will never go back.More

If your looking for a coffee shop with amazing coffee AND amazing bagel. This is the place to go. There bagels are so good. My favorite is the French toast bagel with peanut butter. but they have other really good options as well. I just...highly recommend grabbing a bagel next time you visit!! only flaw is how expensive it. Its definitely on the pricy side! Worth it though!!More

I love going to the 205, grabbing a drink, and also visiting with the hard working employees! I can tell this business is successful because of the hard work the owner and co-workers put into it everyday. That in itself inspires me to support this...business and it feels so good to do so every time! The coffee is so delicious, there many options to choose from. I love it!More

I am not a huge coffee drinker, most the time if I do drink coffee it is black. But I like 205 coffee. They always have creative flavors for every palate. They have everything from great black coffee to sweet, dessert like coffee. Some of...their signature Items include the Americano, the Old Soul Latte, the Nutella Latte, and the famous Creme Brulatte. if you want an extra treat ask for their homemade whip on any of your favorite drinks, it is the best. They also have a variety of breakfast foods including bagels, doughnuts, and even avocado toast. It is a good place to meet with a friend or two to catch up. It has a very vibrant modern vibe. The baristas are nice and accommodating. If you are looking for a place in holland for some good coffee I would recommend 205More

nice ambiance, but the music is always blaring. As a Hope College student, not a great place to study because the owner is agressive in her "coffee shop etiquette." I get it, but it’s irrational to assume that all college students are going to buy...your expensive products every time. If you want people to be regulars at your business, welcome them in, don’t be cold and confrontational. People will bring you business when they feel comfortable making a second home in your coffee shop, which is REAL coffeeshop etiquette. Don’t go here as a student. nice place to meet someone for coffee, but no longer than an hour or so- you gotta buy your seat!More

I stopped in Sunday to warm up and have a place to rest while waiting for my husband to finish the Holland / Haven marathon. The atmosphere was very inviting and the coffee was very good. They didn't seem to have very many whole food.../ plant based options for breakfast or to lighten my brew - so I opted to drink it black. Still very nice and reasonably priced. I think it would be a great place to meet with people as they had a lot of seating including large tables.More

What a great place for an afternoon pick me up! Open aired interior with big windows and a number of chairs outside to enjoy the sun, this is a semi hidden gem that should get more attention.

Modern style coffee shop, barista style. Good expreso machines. We happened to select a latte that wasn’t as pleasant as we had hoped for, but there are several coffee and tea alternatives. Each coffee takes several minutes to be prepared, even more so when there...is a line. Limited pastry offerings (muffins, croissants). Ambiance is great: wood tables of different sizes and stools. An external wall that opens up during summer to create an open style environment.More
