This place was not at all as represented on the internet - either their website or other reviews. Maybe it has changed, I don't know. I do know the menu was nothing like the one I read online. We ordered egg sandwiches (one on croissant, one in a wrap) First, the girl who took our order, then went and made... More

The iced chai was decent, but not worth the rudeness from the counter staff. They were having their own conversation and I felt like I was interrupting when I tried to order, especially when faced with an icy stare. I am a timid person by nature, so I immediately wanted to flee. Afterwards, the drink was slapped down along with... More

I love this place. The coffee is ok but the ambiance of the area more then makes up for it. Right across the street from Starbucks but i would rather hang out here then there.

I like this place and the coffee is smooth and delicious. The food is also good and they have fresh baked good. They have music and a great seating area inside and out. All in all this cafe is old school and not corporate.

Had a great time at Maude's. Had a strawberry cupcake and coffee was fresh and delicious. Great seating both indoor and outdoor. They also have an adorable sidecar bar! Would recommend and return.

There is a reason Maude's Cafe is known affectionately as "...The Known Center of the Universe." Here is a place that has outlasted competitors, survived the deliberate placement of Starbucks right next door to this local gem, and Maude's even set up a great eclectic little bar called Maude's Sidecar, which will undoubtedly survive the new bar going into the...

Unlike some reviewers we found the staff both friendly and helpful. The location is great and in a pretty part of downtown. I had a rickshaw sandwich that was excellent and would recommend. Maude's also has boardgames so you can while a way an hour or two if you have the time.
