If you didn't know this place was in America's heartland you might think you were in a much larger, trendier city like San Francisco. Friendly vibe at the coffee bar where we had to sit because all the tables were taken. Free wifi worked great,...More

The minute we walked in we didn't feel welcome. I felt like we were beneath them. This place seems like it is for wealthy people and not middle class people. The coffee was good but not very hot. No parking.

This is hard, because there are SO many great coffee shops in Springfield, but The Coffee Ethic always wins the best cup for me. The staff is knowledgeable, the atmosphere is fabulous, and the coffee is always top notch.

The atmosphere of this little coffee shop is incredible. The interior is so inviting, making it a prime place for working, talking, or just enjoying some of their excellent coffee. The Coffee Ethic is a local business, and they work hard to source their coffee...More
