“Don't know why everyone says it's so good”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

My friend and I recently visited this coffee shop after reading some of the reviews online, and I'm really not so sure why everyone raves about it. The coffee was SO BAD, we dumped it out on the street. The espresso tasted disgustingly sour, almost as if someone had pickled it. The service was quick and sitting outside was nice, but the quality of the product was terrible. I'm still looking for a decent place to get an espresso in north Jersey.

“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Stopped in after refusing to pay the same price for coffee at raymonds across the street. For $2.50 you get a large and high quality cup of coffee. If you haven't been here yet try it, much better than DD or Bucks.

“The best of independent coffee houses”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Awesome coffee, lots of character, and made-to-order quality. This is not the place to stop when you're in a hurry--stay, take in the scent, and relax with the paper or your laptop for a while. Try the chai-mocha is you're up for something new!

“quality ingredients and hipster feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The baristas care about their product here and take the time and have pride in their offerings. Cofee is complemented by Balthazar pastries and a small sitting area with WiFi.

“Delicious coffee and fabulous service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

I'm new to the area and took some friends (fellow coffee lovers) over to Ridgewood Coffee Company as we waited for our table at Raymond's. The coffee was amazing! Some of my friends and I got lattes and then others got coffee and tea. Everyone enjoyed their drinks and the staff was very friendly/chatty, and also provided some insight into coffee blends and what to look for in choosing good coffee. It was a wonderful experience and I've been back since and they are still just as friendly and the coffee is still amazing! Only thing is the cost is a little steep for lattes, but they are definitely worth it!
