I've stopped here a few times and have tried a few iced coffee drinks - all of which were delicious and the service was wonderful. I like the punch card idea - ask for one if they don't pass one along to you!

This cafe/restaurant right on the courthouse square is so handy for downtown Valpo. It's nice for a light meal before performances at nearby theaters-- the Opera House and Chicago St. Theater. But it is best for meeting a friend or two or three and having a natter. There is also a room at the back which seats about a dozen... More

If you don't mind spending Starbucks money for a cup of coffee, then you are good to go. The coffee and hot chocolate is really good. They also have teas. You can pick different chocolates to munch on or a salad or other lunch type foods. It is a nice place to go before or after a show at the... More

They have changed some of their daily specials and altered some recipes (to make them cheaper, I presume) for the worse. More then once, I have gotten back to my... More

While in Valparaiso, my wife, our friends and I went for a walk around the town prior to the concert we attended at the Memorial Opera House. Just by luck we stopped at this place for a coffee & roll. To our pleasant surprise, the cafe was mobbed. The coffee selection was great from regular to expresso served in various... More

I visit the South Bend Chocolate Cafe in downtown Valparaiso every once in a while. I used to have nothing but good things to say about the place. The staff was always very knowledgeable, kind, and experienced. Now it seems like no one has a clue as to what they are doing. This is a small cafe with only a... More

Nice local restaurant located on the courthouse square to get a quick lunch. Had a chef salad and a cup of soup. Both were well priced and delicious.
