Very nice espresso but short of world-class. So far in many visits over years, the best I've found in Champaign.

This is a very nice student run coffee house that has a consistent crowd. Prices are reasonable and they can prepare coffee in anyway you desire. Their cappuccino and espressos are very good.

Great espresso, but short of world-class. Tasty pastries and other coffee accessories. Can't go wrong in this bohemian place.

We love going to Cafe Kopi in the evening. Great selection of coffee drinks and teas. Located right downtown in 2 storefronts, the place is packed with quaint character. Wonderful for lunch and a light dinner.

With many patrons studying, I felt slightly guilty that my gf and I were talking so much, but, hey, this is a public place, so we enjoyed ourselves while we got caught up. Nice light atmosphere where you can get a bite to eat with a nice coffee.

If you are looking to get away from the Starbucks experience, then Kopi is your place! Great coffee and teas and treats and I just love love the atmosphere! Really cool staff that are always friendly and located downtown so its so much fun to sit outside on a nice day or night and people watch!
