I had two types of coffee in this unpretentious place: an Ethiopian and a Colombian blend . Both tasted quite special , neither sour nor burnt Good temperature and serve by friendly personell. The right stuff to start the day - gimme coffee opens at 7h!

Best latte in town, like silk. These barristas are invested in what they put in front of you. There is a large dictionary to browse while you wait and a series of displays by local artists. The tables are comfortable and there is a sense of some spaciousness. Somebody there is really good at fancy origami from dollar bills--I yearn... More

Made our mandatory morning stop at Gimme on State Street. The lattes were smooth and delicious as always. The leftist espresso blend never fails to please. A wide assortment of excellent savory and sweet pastries included an especially fresh and delightful ham and sweet potato scone.

Its local, its hip, its strong and its cool. Art on the walls, strong coffee, made several different ways. A few good snacks, including some gluten free choices.

Cafe's can abound in a place that favors such things but Gimme Coffee has a way with the java brew that sets it apart from the rest. You owe it to yourself to visit Gimme at least once!

The shop was crowded when I went. Lots of college students who looked like they would be at their given tables for the remainder of the day working on their laptops. However, the coffee was good and the atmosphere was fun. If you could manage to get a seat outside, this would be a fun place to have a cup... More
