They are struggling to stay alive. Their hours of operation have been shortened and the place could use some renovation. Some of their coffee concoctions are good some not so. We still go there on occasion as we meet some friends there for coffee.

Heard from a friend about Mochalisa's and decided to give it a try for breakfast. Nice place, wasn't too busy when we went. Good breakfast sandwich, wrap menu. Has a good lunch menu as well. Baked good were delicious as well. Coffee, and speciality drinks were decent as well and prices were decent. We will be back for many more... More

Want to meet and chat with a colleague? This is the place. Lots of different table arrangements: big circular tables, long 8-person tables, comfy chairs cozy around a low table. Plenty of outlets near tables. Plus a coffee barista with real talent, GREAT tea choices, and some of the freshest salads and sandwiches around. ❤️

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...

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
