I've been back a couple times since the time of my last review, and in that time they've added a bakery/sweets area inside of an already cramped coffee shop.
In fact, my main criticism in the last review then was that the seating was somewhat limited.
Now there's a table that completely blocks the path to the coffee counter.
If you want coffee and somebody is sitting there, you LITERALLY have to squeeze your way past them. See picture for proof. Genius.

And the people working here seem to be bothered, but I'm not sure if it's because you're there or because they're there.
Either way, they could care less and they really seem to go out of their way to convey that.

I ordered an utterly forgettable chicken salad, served on plain toasted store-bought wheat bread.
Wait! You guys have a bakery in there now, right?!?!?!
And you're serving your food on this stuff?!?!?!

Bottom line is that they seem to have given up at Coffee 2, and are just going through the motions because they seem to have to.
They just -don't- care.
And they've lost a previously loyal customer (and his family) as a result.

I have news for you, management: Your category is growing now. There are some really great coffee shops popping up all around you, with more to come (I know first-hand ;)

If you don't step it up SOON, you're days are numbered. . .

Been in here several times after dinner in downtown and always treated as if none ore the staff wanted to be there and didn't want us to be ther as well. Pastries are definitely old at in the evening and shouldn't be sold. Haven't tried the new ice cream and sweet place inside since they were closed as least an hour before they posted closing time. No drip coffee available at 9:15PM and soon learned why...told to leave at 9:25 as they were closing. This place has the potential to be great. The building has great character, it's not a chain(which downtown McKinney should never allow-although it already did), and a late night dessert coffee place is needed. Unfortunately, it doesn't hit the mark. Mainly due to the lack of desire on the staff, which one can only assume comes from the owner.

One of the best coffees around but their sweets needs help. Lacks variety, some are store bought and sometimes they are old.

I've been to Coffee2 a number of times since moving to McKinney, both solo and with my wife, and we agree that this is our favorite local coffee spot. The coffee is consistently of very high quality and roasted locally (in TX). We love the relaxed atmosphere and free WiFi, and often go just to hang out for an hour or so and get stuff done online.
The only downside is that if you go during busy times, you won't find a place to sit. Groups have a tendency to meet there, and you may find a table or two open, but no chairs available to sit on.
But this does not happen very often, so it is not reflected in the rating.
