A typical funky college town coffeeshop in downtown. A good place to relax and people watch Free wi-fi, convenient seating, and good coffee (albeit not very cheap).

This is the best coffee place in Columbia with unique drinks available. I tried the seasonal lavender coffee drink they had and would highly recommend it! They also offer a wide of food and snacks. The staff was friendly and it was a cozy environment.

On my first visit, the barista even put a very beautiful design on the top of my latte' -- very hard to achieve with low fat milk!

Go to Fretboard (great coffee!) At Kaldi's, the coffee is mediocre at best. The staff, which are mostly young college kids, are rude. They just stand behind the counter talking while you're waiting to be served. Free wifi is a pain to get on and slow. Food is gross. Go to Uprise, Ernie's, or Main Squeeze instead. Lots more better... More

Really good teas, presented really well. Complemented by comfortable, functional spaces in which to work, mingle or relax. Kaldi's Coffeehouse is my go-to spot between classes when I visit MU.

Have often gone into Kaldi's Coffeehouse for a quick java and never actually stopped to have a meal there. That recently changed when I got my standard coffee, but this time, ordered their Black Bean Burrito and hummus. Enjoy the coffee but very much enjoyed the food. Am looking towards my next visit in which I wanted to try their... More

The salads are fresh and the sandwich ingredients are fresh. Service is always fun here. I've been a customer of this establishment for years and I've never had a complaint. The pumpkin spice coffee during the fall is my favorite

It's no mystery that college towns have the best coffee. With the exceptions of San Francisco Seattle and Portland perhaps. Here's a good one. Very well made espresso drinks. Surprisingly good and reasonable food (quiche, sandwiches, oatmeal, good pastries). Very polite young folks working the counter- how refreshing, I must be in the Midwest.

Kaldi's great coffee and good food. I usually get the cappuccino--ask for it NOT to be in a go cup and it is served on a tray with seltzer and choc covered beans...don't miss this treat!!! Usually good pastries, too
