The coffee is average, service is lukewarm. It's just ok. I would go here before a show nearby but wouldn't go here just for coffee or a chat with friends. I do salute them for using pasta as coffee stirrers instead of wood or plastic.

Fantastic service, coffee, muffins, ice cream etc. Couldn't ask for a better place to have a cup of coffee before a show at Evening Muse or Neighborhood Theatre

We visited Smelly Cat Coffee today and loved it. Very cool atmosphere and the coffee was good. All of the staff were very friendly. Prices certainly beat the premium chain.

This place is not fancy but very, very friendly and charming in it's own way. A great place to stop for a coffee after dinner in NoDa. There are inside and outside tables. I went here after dinner at Cabo Fish Tacos and the decaf was great. The desserts did not look extraordinary, so I did not order anything. Great place for a coffee and conversation. Enjoy!

Smelly cat is more about the neighborhood feel than anything else. Once Kathy (owner) knows your name she never forgets it. Great atmosphere. Great place to meet people from the neighborhood.
