Stopped on a chilly day from some hot beverages. Was hoping for some cozy seating but was disappointed that there were only 3 or 4 chairs and the rest were high tops. Drinks weren’t anything special. Kind of a bummer. Was hoping it would be...More

This is my favorite spot every Sunday to go and read my Bible and study at. Very good fair trade coffee! Service takes a while a lot of the time and the employees talk loud quite a bit, but overall I like the environment.

I love this coffee shop, I only drink black coffee and they have a large variety of delicious and exotic black coffees and their specials change daily.

Crowded. Clean up is not very quick. Not generally very busy. Good coffee - good selection. Tables are very close together.

I absolutely LOVE the coffee and smoothies at Friederich's. Their coffee is very good quality compared to their competitors, and most of their products are made with real cream and not powdered ingredients. They also make their smoothies with fresh fruit and everything is very...More
