There were about 20 people in line, one guy taking orders and one guy making the coffee. Took like 25 minutes from time I walked in the door to the time I walked out with my coffee. Apparently staff also too busy to say "thank you". A large flavored coffee was $4.75. Flavored straight out of bottle and way overdone.... More

Michelangelo's is always busy, but the espresso is well worth the wait! I have come here a few times with friends, and we have been consistently impressed by the atmosphere (lots of nooks in the building for studying/quiet conversation) and by the espresso beverages. Michelangelo's has an incredibly wide array of different flavored lattes and specialty drinks that are creative... More

Had an iced latte. Delish. Had a sandwich (pre made) tasted good but bread a bit soggy. Spent a pleasant hour during the heat poking about on my laptop.

needed a great coffee and was near the Capital for the farmer's market. The coffee was really, really good. The croissant egg sandwich was delish. The staff was very friendly and helpful considering how crowded it was.

My son and I dropped in for a quick refresher after spending a few hours at the Farmers Market. The line was long, so we figured it was good. My son got a non-caffeinated chocolate concoction, and I got a drink from their cold caffeinated selections. I really liked the atmosphere there...wish that we were able to linger longer.

Well, this is one of my favorite places to hang out or to study. I love the "Monkey Mocha' and the 'Caramel Mocha' here. I am a Vegan and they have a few things to eat too which makes it an easy choice for me. Albeit, I go to coffee places for coffee but I do feel like eating sometimes... More

Michelangelo's has a great friendly neighborhood coffee shop vibe. Lots of comfortable seating - at tables or in couches and armchairs. Suitable for a quick pop in or something on the go, a longer sit down solo or with friends, or studying for hours. Menu options include specialty coffees, teas, and homemade chai; paninis (both vegetarian or with meat); soup... More

I've been to this coffee house a couple times. The pastries in the window are alluring, especially the chocolate croissants. The coffee here is robust, packed with a punch, way better than Starbucks!

I decided to visit the Madison area for a weekend retreat with a friend. I absolutely loved State St. and this coffee house was a really cool venue- cool decor and delicious drinks. We also got a chocolate chip pumpkin muffin which was fantastic.
