I was sorry to see a "For Sale" sign as I biked by Froth House earlier today. If I recall correctly they were closed for a while earlier this year and re-opened under new ownership just recently. I bike by there almost daily, and it took me a while to realize they were a coffee shop. I had mistakenly thought... More

Froth house has friendly service and reliably good coffee. Having said that, I wish the owners would have more employees working in the morning. There is often a line, at no fault of the one amazing employee tasked with the job of serving so many at once. The baked goods are amazing. Especially the chocolate raspberry cupcake. This is my...

What a quaint little place to enjoy a morning coffee or tea with wifi included and home made pastries. When in Madison, you must stop by here for a homey comfortable place to relax.

I didn't try the espresso drinks, but the drip coffee was just OK. I heard that there were Madison's famous Lazy Jane scones here, but these seem to have been discontinued.

We visited Thanksgiving morning. Everything was free! It was a very welcoming place. Very charming. Every Saturday morning they have a kids music hour too.

Their formaggio sandwich is divine and the service is top-notch. It's a great place to hear live music...both inside and outside in their back yard patio.

Just South, up the street from the University Hospital on Allen St. Great coffee (if I hadn't already said somewhere else had the best coffee). I tried the bold (house) but next found the medium to be wonderful. Both were very strong and smooth. Eric, the Manager, brought out some smoothy samples that were excellent. About 11:30, He suggest that... More

I love going to this place on cold afternoons. It has a great glass window you can just sit by and look outside, and music is always soft and a nice background. Don't miss the formaggio with spinach and tomatoes!

Great place to hold a casual meeting, pick up a good, quick meal, or watch a live show. I love the food - especially the grilled cheese sandwich (I think they call it a fromagio?). I agree with the other reviewer, however, that the students from the nearby high school can really take over and negatively affect the atmosphere.

Thank ekerwin
