This coffee shop is pretty groovy. It's located close to downtown among small shops and restaurants. The coffee shop also has alcohol. They have food as well. Lots of Gluten Free options. I ordered the Avocado Bacon Turkey on a GF bagel with chips. Very good and filling. This is a great place to check out. They have huge cookies... More

In an attempt to shop locally and not give my money to that place that rhymes with carbucks, I stopped by The Coffee Exchange and fell in love with the people, white espresso, and the atmosphere. This is a must try... and I'm not even a huge coffee drinker!

A very casual, quaint coffee shop. Plenty of seating and tables along with some more comfortable couches at the back. Wifi worked well too. We tried white espresso for the first time and loved it! The barista explained that white espresso is made from beans that are “flash” roasted or barely roasted. He offered us a smell of the ground... More

If you have tried Poor Richards and liked it you will love the Coffee Exchange. It is located south of downtown so there is more parking available. The offerings were plentiful and reasonable. It is a great meeting place; our group of 5 were able to talk to each other and be heard without the hustle and bustle of chain... More

I have never had "white coffe" but I just found a whole new way to get a caffeine buzz! Much smoother and easy on the gut. I had the fruit looped zombie (one of several specialty drinks). Worth a stop. If I lived in town I'd be a regular.

I guess it's back to Starbucks downtown. I thought I would try one of the independent coffee houses thinking they have to do it better than Starbucks (who is very mediocre) in my opinion. But no they were SOOO disappointing. The cappuccinos tasted burnt and the food was ok...

So many different kinds of drinks and snacks to choose from. The drink I got was great. And the apple muffin I got was delicious too just a little crumbly to eat in the car. Rather have had it there to enjoy it more. Theme of the place seemed pretty laid back and nice place to hangout

I have been to The Coffee Exchange several times. I have ordered, among other items, the spinach pie, breakfast burrito, breakfast croissant sandwich, pumpkin bread and banana nut bread and I have never been disappointed. They have options for everyone including vegetarian and gluten free. Almost all of the items are homemade by the owner, baker, and cook Andy. I... More
