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.

The staff is knowledgeable and courteous, even offering refills of regular or decaf brews if you are staying there a while.

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 tasty!

Everytime I go, the service is good, the food is good and the coffee is great. The punch card is a bonus. When I'm away from home, I miss Friedrichs.
