I believe Mocha Lisa is in the Clifton Park Center Mall, in the middle of a block of stores. There is a miss match of furniture, but I do not think you care too much about that. Quick lunch items, plenty of coffee, teas and drinks and some great looking desserts. Yummy. Good comfortable atmosphere for coffee and chatting or... More

What I like most about Mochalisa's is the restaurant itself. I like the two meeting rooms in the back and have use them for groups before but on this day I met with one friend for a cup of coffee. I love the seating up front in the windows and it's relaxing to sit for an hour and chat with... More

Its a nice relaxed atmosphere. During peak hours its a bit loud but there is always seats by the window or a table. There are tables towards the back of the place if you want to bring your laptop and get some work or studying done. The coffee is not so expensive and they have some sandwich, panini type foods...

A little expensive for what you get. Cute cafe in a great location. Plenty of parking and friendly service.

This place has a strange decoration and somehow it looks like it's floor is dirty. It is basically a place to have a cup of coffee while you use internet but it really doesn't have anything special to talk about it. I think they could be so much better about the decor. Making the decoration more inviting would really bring... More

Nice, independent place with good, hot coffee, generous portion and friendly service. Tables and chairs all over for your comfort. Not rushed so you can really relax, check your email or whatever. Great desserts too!

My first turnoff was that the restaurant (a coffee shop, mind you) did not open until 8 AM. I arrived at opening for a business-related meeting, so thankfully I was planning to be here awhile. Initially there was only one person working. The computers were down, so the poor woman was trying to keep everything together. It took 30 minutes... More

Always looking for healthy options that are tasty when I go out for lunch. I ordered the sun dried tom wrap. It was just a turkey wrap with a sun dried tom dressing drizzled inside. It didn't have a ton of meat inside but it was filling for a lunch. I would def. Order it again. And the Tuscana latte... More

Used to love this place, but my last two visits were uninspiring. Long, long line on a weekday morning around 10am. Then the milk used for my cappuccino was sour. Barrista claimed "Oh, it's not sour. I just scorched it." Okay, um, so refund? replace? anything? You served it anyhow when you knew you scorched it? He offered to do... More
