We’re slowly in the process of moving to State College and I go here pretty regularly. Great coffee (sometimes not piping hot, but always delicious) but never have been disappointed by the food selections. Chicken salad for lunch is always great. Baked goods for your...“snack break” vary but are always just what you’re looking for to go with your coffee. Lots of local artwork and things to browse while you wait. Employees are nice, and never seem to have a bad day.More

Great place for a coffee drink, snack, or lunch. Not a lot of seating but great ambiance and wonderful to enjoy if you can get a table. Some outdoor seating makes that easier on warmer days.

Convenient to State College. Drop in for a fresh coffee and a tasty scone. The coffee was fantastic. The remodeled older home serves the shop well with is small tables and cozy rooms. Nice!

Stopped in for lunch but found a very limited menu. It's a fairly small cafe, some outside seating is available. Decided to just have drinks. My mocha drink was spot on! Delicious!! Just was hoping for a better menu. Can't comment on the quality of...food. Drinks were very good!More

I simply love this relaxed little gem. Nicely decorated, friendly staff and the food is great. Coffee is primo every time, and really cannot ever go wrong coming here.

If you're looking for wonderful, rich coffee this is the place. Not a lot of parking outside or room inside so might be a bit challenging but you should definitely go there. All coffee I've had has been exceptional as has the loose leaf tea....The few different food items have all been fresh and tasty. Certainly worth your time!More

I have been to Cafe Lemont about 8 times over the last couple of year and every single time I go, busy or slow, I feel like I am bothering the staff. I wish it was more of a friendly and neighborly place. Recently I...have stopped going all together and go even further to get more hospitable service.More

My first visit to Cafe Lemont was fantastic. I met a friend mid-morning for drinks and conversation. It was the perfect day. I ordered a Mocha Latte with extra chocolate. It was excellent and honestly the best Mocha Latte I have ever had. The cafe...was packed - all the tables were filled inside, but we wanted to sit outside anyway. Half the outdoor seats were full, but we had plenty of space. Surprisingly, the cafe is located within a larger historical building, or mansion. Some other small local businesses were found here and might be of interest to visitors.More

Great local coffee shop in Happy Valley. Because it is "hidden" in Lemont, it is not as busy as other places. In pleasant weather, you can sit at one of many tables out back, or on the porch. It is a classic independent coffee shop...and cafe so it is unique in its own right and has quirks but then again that's what makes it fun.More

Local cafe! Local ingredients. Cozy environment. In summer, you can sit outside on the porch or in the back yard. I usually order the chicken pesto melt and a cup of Darjeeling tea (which is awesome) . I don't change my order that often (why...change a good thing?) but I am sure everything else is just as good. Also they have books you can read, and I just love that I can get my weekly fix of Calvin and Hobbs there.More

This shop is located inside a building that houses a few other businesses. Although small, the shop is very inviting. Although they don't roast the beans there, the coff was still excellent. Great selection of coffee and teas. Nice menu, our daughter had a chicken...salad sandwich, while my bride and I had the Smoked Salmon BLT, both were big sized sandwiches, and worth every penny. If in the area check them outMore

The coffee shop is absolutely adorable! The decor is great and it's part of an adorable old house. They have they classic menu with drinks/snacks you would expect. No extensive food menu, but what they had was fine. It was reasonably priced compared to other...coffee shops. Unfortunately I was getting my breakfast to go, but if you want to support a local business, or hang out for a few hours to get some work done, this is your place! Wish I lived closer!More

The Pesto Egg Sandwich and Quiche of the day was excellent. Did not enjoy the cappuccino that much. However, it did take a while for us to get our order. Also the space is very cramped for someone who enjoys space. However, the decor is...rustic and has a makes you feel relaxed.More

Cafe Lemont is a great local coffee shop. Friendly staff, very nice space for sitting, reading, working, relaxing. They also have a nice selection of gluten free treats which is great as we have some celiac disease in our family.
