They baristas are all friendly and funny and are all very knowledgeable. The coffee is wonderful, the food is wonderful and if coffee isn't your thing they have a variety of alcoholic choices. A great place to sit, write and relax.

I walked to this coffee shop from Washburn's campus with friends on an early Saturday morning. We each ordered something different for breakfast and something different to drink. I had the breakfast veggie wrap and it was good, but had way too many onions. We also saw beer taps so we know beer is also served in addition to the... More

had dinner with a few friends. The handcrafted beer was average at best. I had the special Bison burger it wasn't all that great. Others in the group had felt their dinners were just ok. On the other hand our server was excellent and tried to keep things moving.

First of all, if you go looking for the Flying Monkey, you will never find it. All of the signs on the building are "PT's Coffee & Roasting Co. It is not until you get inside that you will find "Flying Monkey Expresso". It is right across the street from Washburn University and has that college coffee shop feel. Small... More

This is my favorite place in Topeka for coffee and breakfast or lunch. The food is really good, the coffee is awesome, and the staff members are always friendly. The atmosphere is great and nothing here is "run-of-the-mill". My favorite for breakfast is the "It's A Wrap" and the have a great twist on grilled cheese for lunch! I highly... More

I stop here several mornings a week for chai. The staff is wonderful--always friendly and attentive. The decor is trendy and it's a great place to hang out. Wish I could stay longer, but I have to get to work!

After living in Italy for a year I'm pretty particular about my macchiati (macchiatos). This place gets it right AND they're roasts are incredible. Get something there and take a pound of coffee to go. You won't regret it.

If you're interested in things other than fried food and chain restaurants, this is the place to go. The food offered is upscale cafe food: quiches, amazing salads, sandwiches, soups -- not to mention every blend of tea you'd ever want but most importantly their coffee drinks are tops. Their cocktails and drafts are some of the best available in... More
