While I often frequent those large franchise coffee stores I truly love the coffee shops that are family owned .. Sister Sludge is one of those small stores that has the best coffee, the best snacks and perhaps more importantly the owners run the store .. they great you with a warm smile and call you by name when you...

Small, but with a couple of comfortable couches and club chairs available. Artistic owners (a pair of sisters) and staff will do a pretty design on your latte if you ask. Decent selection of sandwiches and baked goods; pre-packaged oatmeal available. Nice place to read the paper and have a cup of civilized coffee.

I really liked this place. Nice coffee, good food, and a real community feel. Plenty of space to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. I'll be returning soon.

This little coffee shop is very convenient, they allow dogs (treats are inside the door!), make a great cold press, and are right on the bus line if you happen to be waiting. The service is always very friendly and it feels very "neighborhoody." :) There are a couple tables outside, nice for a warm day.

This is a daily stop for me on my way to work. The coffee is much better than at the nearby Caribou Coffee on Cedar. Service is great, the sisters (and cousin) are very friendly. Children and other pets are welcomed. Wish that they had more space for sitting and visiting!

We live right behind SS so we go there all the time. Three triplet women own n operate this great neighborhood coffee shop. Chatting with the trips is a good way to start your day. Folks, get yer coffee from SS instead of the big Corp coffee. Peace.
