“Lively AND relaxing, really”

Metropolitan Coffee
Price range: $2 - $4
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place. There is live music two nights a week. They have swing dancing once a month. They have free wi-if and a variety of seating. The best part is that they have LOOSE LEAF TEA! Of course they ah e all the coffee offerings but as someone who dislikes coffee the loose leaf tea is crucial. There is art for sale in the walls. The food offerings are scones and muffins, good but not substantial.

I have been here before but am more likely to return now that I know about the loose leaf tea. (Can you tell this is a big deal for me? :))

I love the Metro! This place makes a seriously good drink, whether hot or cold - good enough to satisfy the pickiest coffee drinker. The atmosphere is amazing, a perfect place to read a book, meet with friends, or study for a paper. They have live music every Friday & Saturday night, bringing in a wide variety of very talented musicians. They feature local artwork every month, so that keeps the atmosphere fresh. All in all, it is exactly what you would hope a coffee shop to be!

It's quiet, comfortable, relaxed and very inviting. The staff is fantastic, everyone behind the counter is very personable, polite, courteous, and friendly. It is immediately obvious that the staff is all very passionate about the product they serve to the public, can't say enough about the staff and how awesome they are. The coffee is impeccable. I didnt feel silly or dumb if i didnt know anything about an exotic sounding brew they had, everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable about the drinks. If you go you must try the Bean Freeze. It. is. amazing. And they can make it any combination of flavors that they have available, or you can let the staff pick the flavors, because they all seem to have exceptional taste. The art and music only add more to the incredibly warm and welcoming atmosphere. Give em a try, you wont regret it.

I was in town briefly for business and when I had some downtime I decided to stop. It is a large place with tables, booths, and comfortable oversized chairs. It is a very relaxing atmosphere. The service was great, the coffee lovely and scones to die for! I would highly recommend it!
