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

Our daughter has been in Troy at RPI for the past four years, so we have had a few meals here over the years. Each time we had breakfast, we all declared it was the best any of us had ever had in our travels. You can't go wrong with anything really. Their pancakes and omelets are amazing, the bagels...

Had a nice egg breakfast sandwich in here. Low-key, casual place, great for a 2/3-person early morning business meeting or just a quiet place to gradually wake up while enjoying some good coffee.

Nice place, but on the farmers market morning they needed to be better staffed, with an extra cash register as well. By 9am they were backed up 45 minutes on food. Loads of available seating so not sure what the issue was. Spill'n came highly recommended so hopefully this was just a glitch.
