The Coffee and Tea experience is complete and excellent with fresh bakery items, quiches (after 9AM), and artisan sandwiches. A variety of comfy seating arrangements and tables, including a few outside in front and back. Free WiFi and magazines and a bulletin board hawking local events and services. Bulk coffee (bean or ground fresh) and tea is available. I am... More

This is a perfect place to stop for a cuppa or a bite to eat, take in some local vibes, and meet new friends or run into old friends. If you've been around Berea for a while, you'll run into people you know at BC&T. They have a surprisingly wide selection of food, from hot and cold sandwiches to quiche,... More

Great little coffee/sandwich shop! Met my daughter here for some coffee. I had the Dirty Chai and she had Tropical Tea. The kids had hot chocolate. All was very good and pricing is very reasonable! Seating is casual. We chose a table by the window. This appears to be an old building, which just adds to its charm. Glad I... More

Fun coffee place with old time college feel. Fun to listen to a prof and student at the next table and the falls in the corner. Food was good, service adequate.

Great coffee, great bagels, pastries, comfortable couches, and atmosphere. The only issue is the staff are kind of mean acting. Not really mean but Starbucks mean, like your order is interfering with them finishing up their last edit for the short story they are getting ready to submit to mcsweeneys. Great coffee.

This is a beautiful coffee shop located in town center of Berea. Since I don't know my way around the town,  I had to ask one of the locals for a coffee/tea shop and double checked their suggestion on yelp. This is a decent size coffee shop, with several seating options. It is a bit dim inside so may be... More

I've been living here in Berea for about 4 years and I crave Tea. Ive noticed that a lot of places advertise coffee all day everyday so its a relief to visit a place where they have the best of both worlds! I also love their sandwiches and desserts!!!

My husband and I ducked in to this cafe to get out of the rain one day, while visiting Berea. We found that it is a beautiful little cafe with quite a variety of sandwiches on the menu. I ordered a simple toasted sandwich and really appreciated how well it was done. It's a simple thing -- a toasted sandwich... More

We were staying at Boone Tavern, but didn’t want a full hotel breakfast. Conveniently, right next door is Berea Coffee & Tea, for some reason downplaying its bakery activities. After you figure out what to do (go to the register and someone will come along and take your order, find your own table, etc) we settle in. We order cappuccino... More
