This cafe is really close to my house so I went here quite a few times. Each time I go I always get disappointed. The coffee is not hot or the service is horrible... They do not offer dairy free (last time i was there anyway), or gluten free option. This cafe sure has the potential to be cute and... More

We are visiting from Australia and walked to this friendly little cafe on a cold and raining day. Very busy but soon found a table. The seafood chowder special (Fridays only) was delicious. The coffee was hot and they have free wifi! Great chatting with locals and one couple even offered a lift home because of the rain. Prices very... More

A nice little coffee shop with more to offer .Nice and quiet so you can catch up on your computer or visit over lunch or just a snack. If you happen to live in the neighborhood becoming a regular is not out of the question

Friends used to be a nice and reasonably priced place for lunch or breakfast but prices have been going up and up for some time and the value for money is not the same as they are cutting too many corners. The soups used to be thick and hearty but are now watered down and overseasoned. Coffee, drip coffee and... More

Dropped in on a Sunday lunchtime for something to eat. The place was very busy but there are plenty of seats. The mushroom soup was very heavy on the seasoning but still acceptable. The cricket wrap (#10) was very good with lots of filling benighted from the portobello mushrooms. The latte was ok, a little on the stronger side compared... More

The food here is great! I have searched high and low for a coffee shop like this where I live now with no such luck. Everything is home made and fresh. Margie, the owner, always has a great smile and friendly welcome. I would have to say the soups are my favorite! However I rarely leave with out a home... More

It was my first time at this cappuccino bar and when I inquired about a sandwich, the staff was very rude and said that what is on the board needs no furthers explanation. When I placed my order, she said that we do not serve this on that type of bread. Here I pointed out to her that more information... More

Friends has been in its spot in Edgemont for what seems like 20 years. It is a warm, friendly coffee shop. Recently renovations were done which modernized the somewhat dated interior. The owner works in the shop and is very friendly, as is the staff. I sometimes stop at Friends for lunch take-out when I am on my way home... More
