“Quirky, Fun, Great Home-like feeling and a super yummy latte!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2011

They make a great latte. The service was friendly and it was great to hear the stories they had to share. I love walking into a place and feeling like a local resident. Everyone was treated the same. We didn't go into the store next door, but it looked very cool. Next time I'm in Portsmouth, we will drop in on our "old friends".

“Great coffee and cider!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2011

My mom is a huge fan of coffee shops and wants to open one in the future. We stopped in here to check out this coffee shop based on the reviews. The atmosphere was definitely different! The wall had rugs hanging all over it and Turkish music playing in the background. I ordered a cafe mocha and the girl behind the counter made it perfect with my name written in chocolate syrup on the top. My mom got a hot carmel apple cider which was also amazing. I definitely recommend this place - it's only a few minutes walk from the main shops.

“Atmosphere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

A little too dark for me and the coffee in the afternoon was not very hot but it was a place to get a cup of coffee along my way to my lodging.

“The coolest coffee in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2010

Caffe Kilim is located a few blocks outside of the downtown area and is the best place to go in Portsmouth for a cup of coffee. Get the Dancing Goats coffee and take in the atmosphere, this is what Portsmouth is all about. Caffe Kilim used to be located downtown, but the gentrification and condo-ization of downtown forced their customers about 1/4 mile away and Kilim followed them. Now there are places to park and it's a beautiful place to hang out on a warm spring day.
