The omlets are awsome. The coffee is great always fresh. The service is great. The prices are reasonable.

“Best fresh roasted coffee in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Treated ourselves to a Saturday breakfast there and it was terrific, as usual. We both had Mimosas to start and followed with fresh blueberry pancakes and nicely crisped bacon. I had regular drip Cubano coffee and my wife had a properly prepared latte. Go for it, its worth it.

“Good food, nice variety”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Fun place to go with your college student or friends. Have not sampled the bakery/confectionary in the same space but the brunch and sandwich items are very good, not huge portions, and the water and ice tea are served in mason jar glasses -- fitting for a unfancy, unpretentious, good eatery. Have eaten there at least 3 times in the past year and all good.

“Coffee and more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

The fun, quirky decor at Ambition matches the fun, quirky menu. Entrees have names like Artichoke Your Chicken and Crabby Mark (my favorite). It's all delicious - definitely not your run-of-the-mill sandwich place. It's also frequented by Proctors performers - we went in one night for dessert and found a bunch of cast members from a musical putting on a fundraising performance. So fun!
