My wife and I stopped here for a breakfast sandwich last Saturday and were not disappointed. The sandwich was actually a wrap that included egg, spinach and cheese. Made to perfection. We will certainly be stopping by here again for breakfast.

Great place to have a generous portion of one's choice of breakfast items as well as a delicious cup of coffee. Seating can be a bit crowded but worth the wait should it be an issue.

I like the way this coffeehouse is set up. Has couches, can order just a coffee and hang out & use the wifi. I like their wraps and their breakfast. However, the service has gone downhill. You have to wait far far too long for food. I hate to see kids crying cuz the food never comes out, as my... More

Showed up in Troy for parent orientation at RPI and had breakfast here instead of the hotel. Best call EVER! They roast their own coffee beans which gets them 2 thumbs up from me. I do wish they brewed stronger, more beans per H2O or french pressed, but I'll take fresh overtime. Food was outstanding. Huge portions and adorable atmosphere.... More

Our daughter has been in Troy at RPI for the past four years, so we have had a few meals here over the years. Each time we had breakfast, we all declared it was the best any of us had ever had in our travels. You can't go wrong with anything really. Their pancakes and omelets are amazing, the bagels...

Had a nice egg breakfast sandwich in here. Low-key, casual place, great for a 2/3-person early morning business meeting or just a quiet place to gradually wake up while enjoying some good coffee.

Nice place, but on the farmers market morning they needed to be better staffed, with an extra cash register as well. By 9am they were backed up 45 minutes on food. Loads of available seating so not sure what the issue was. Spill'n came highly recommended so hopefully this was just a glitch.

I love everything about this place! Breakfast is always good, from pastry to omellette to pancakes and don't forget the funky fries! My favorite are the banana nut pancakes and I love the funky fries which are homefries with bacon, sausage and cheese I do not reccomend going on Saturday mornings because it can be very difficult to get a...

I find the food and coffee here consistently good. I think a lot of other people agree with me, because it is always crowded. The service is good though, and the line tends to move right along.

Every time I'm in Troy, I make sure to stop in and get a caramel latte. Hot or iced - it's always consistently delicious.
