Had a macchiato here and one across the street at Dom's. The one at Dom's was better, but more expensive. The atmosphere here is charming, with outside seating and inside among the antiques. For coffee, Dom's. For atmosphere, Coffee Trade. Take your pick.

When I walk through the door, I am transported to another place, out of my everyday life. I'm not sure why, but the ambience, smells, and friendly people seem to work on me in a special way. The products are delicious; I'm spoiled by them and can't even consider Starbucks anymore. When you need to relax, give this place a... More

I'm one of the regulars who buys coffee by the pound. After 12 lbs, the 13th is free! I love all the flavors and the gingerbread latte is to die for. I also love how they make hot cocoa for my son - not too hot so he can sip it right away. The decor is cute and I always... More

I've been to Coffee Trade in the past and the coffee is good, however, when a coffee shop doesn't open on Saturday until 8:30 a.m. that's simply too late! So, I went to Starbucks instead.

Fresh, excellent coffee which can be enjoyed in a beautiful atmosphere. A wonderful collection of antiques for sale, as well. Stop by and you will want to return every day.

Take visitors from out of town here. The place is full of character in the center of old Avon. Watch the coffee being roasted. I had a "frappe" of salted caramel, my friends had regular brew with an elephant ear pastry. Coffee concoctions can be prepared hot or iced. We nursed our drinks in one of the rooms with antiques...

Was in town for 5 days and we stopped here everyday. Great place for the coffee of your choice, places to sit and visit inside and out. Some nice antiques on display that are for sale.

I live right around this place, so I go here all the time (even though I'm a barista for a different place). I love walking through the door; you can see and smell the coffee roasting, and there's little knickknacks everywhere for both sale and decoration. It makes me think of a coffee shop meets grandma's house.

I stopped by this small place on the way back from an appointment and was shocked when the owner made me a bittersweet mocha that I'd normally expect in Europe, not the U.S. where places like Starbucks over-sweeten all of the drinks. I eventually learned that they have run this place for about 20 years, roast their own coffee (the... More

I love this place! I decompress just going through the door. The décor is fun, the people are happy and friendly, the coffee is roasted on site and is the best. We get all our coffee here - for home brewing and for coffee on the go. I also go in just to pick up some fun gifts, but even... More
