I did not order anyThing We sat quietly at a table for two in a self serve restaurant that was not too busy she ordered and they brought the... More

Came here on a snowy morning for a quick bite with my parents. My brother and I got chocolate chip muffins and I'm not exaggerating when I say this is the best muffin I've ever had. As someone who use to eat a muffin for breakfast every morning and considers themselves a muffin connoisseur this is saying a lot. I... More

Ambiance warm and welcoming, you just want to get your coffee or tea and relax. This is not possible because of the way the line is set up. You cannot simply get coffee or tea and sit. Instead, you wage in a very long line of people who are ordering complicated breakfast and lunch menus, for perhaps 15 minutes. When... More

Went Sat AM. Busy but not crazy. Waited hour and never got food. Got $$ back and left. Apologized but did really seem to care.

Food 4 stars Ambience 5 stars Service 2 stars Friendliness 1 star This is not the place to order hot food if you're in a hurry. We waited over half an hour for our food and it was not busy. I asked the owner/manager if I could get a couple of potatoes with my omelette instead of toast since they... More

Waited 30 minutes for food; Dirty dishes were on our table and when we asked the waitress to remove them as she was clearing another table with no patrons, she replied "I thought they were yours". When our order arrived, a side was missing, and the waitress replied "you did not order the side, it is not on your ticket... More

My wife and I stopped here for a breakfast sandwich last Saturday and were not disappointed. The sandwich was actually a wrap that included egg, spinach and cheese. Made to perfection. We will certainly be stopping by here again for breakfast.

Great place to have a generous portion of one's choice of breakfast items as well as a delicious cup of coffee. Seating can be a bit crowded but worth the wait should it be an issue.

I like the way this coffeehouse is set up. Has couches, can order just a coffee and hang out & use the wifi. I like their wraps and their breakfast. However, the service has gone downhill. You have to wait far far too long for food. I hate to see kids crying cuz the food never comes out, as my... More

Showed up in Troy for parent orientation at RPI and had breakfast here instead of the hotel. Best call EVER! They roast their own coffee beans which gets them 2 thumbs up from me. I do wish they brewed stronger, more beans per H2O or french pressed, but I'll take fresh overtime. Food was outstanding. Huge portions and adorable atmosphere.... More
