Had lunch at the Terra Cotta with one of my old professors (and a couple of his current students) when I was back in Alfred recently, and I was not disappointed. I had the turkey BLT wrap (which was very good) and a vanilla chai latte (hot) that was way better than anything I have had at Dunkin Donuts, Starbuck's,... More

A welcome feeling as soon as you get inside the cafe. Friendly people, family owned, very warm and cosy decorated. Beautiful lounge verandas upstairs. I would definitely recommend it

For years, my husband and I would try out various coffee shops/houses during our travels and always wished we had one in Alfred. Several years ago, Terracotta was opened and we could't be happier. I love this place. I can get good dark roast coffee, my German son can get good espresso. Teas, lattes, and so on. I like the... More

If you need coffee go to Terracotta. If you need breakfast don't go to Terracotta. If you are looking for a place to hang out, possibly take a nap and do your homework, go to Terracotta. If you need lunch, don't go to Terracotta.

Warm and comfortable coffee house. Just what you would expect in a college town. Beats Starbucks or DD! We always stop here when we are in town.

This place serves homemade cake and subs as well as house salad. In the summer time, freppe's manu is fabrilous esp. Moccha which was my fav. In the winter time, Terracotta warmly... More
