Favorite coffee place on Route 25 - easy in and out! I try to avoid the baked goods - but they are so fresh and delicious - I must. Food is love when you get the classic black and white cookie.

Just stopped a few times for coffee and a snack, which really was quite good but a bit expensive and the staff seemed more interested intalking to each other than serving folks that were waiting

Hi Brian,

I want to thank you for coming by Cafe Xpresso and taking the time to leave a review but I am horrified that our staff wasn't their usual friendly and helpful selves; great service for our guests is our number 1 priority. If you wouldn't mind, I'd like you to email me at info@CafeXpressoNewtown.com to let me know the day and approximate time you were in so I can look into the lapse of service you experienced.
Also, please know that we work very hard to try to keep our prices as low as possible but transportation and food costs have been climbing steadily over the last year and we use the freshest, highest quality ingredients possible, like farm fresh eggs, artisan breads, meats with no chemicals added, etc. so that does cause our prices to be a bit higher than the average deli.

The baked treats are amaing! Highly recommend the macaroons! The seating area is a little small but very cozy.

Love this place!! I come here once or twice a week for breakfast and to grab chocolate croissants when I visit my boyfriend since he's obsessed with them . I love their Waldorf chicken salad, it has crisp green apples and cranberries, oh and this really delicious dressing that I would like for my house! Their gluten free granola bars are very filling and tasty, I like the raisin ones but they offer ones with chocolate too. My 'but' is that the last two times I've ordered the maple bacon egg and cheese to go (eat on my way to work) on gluten free bread, it hasn't had the maple which is so disappointing when I'm halfway to work. Doesn't seem like much but that maple is what makes the sandwich and is the part o look forward to most! Especially on the gluten free bread it needs that flavor, but I should add that they have some of the best gluten free bread. From now on when picking up my orders I will clearly ask that it has the maple ;) try this place out!

Hi There,

I am so sorry to hear about your issues with our Maple, Bacon & Egg sandwich on GF bread. I will talk to our kitchen staff & remedy the situation. You're right, that the sandwich just isn't the same without enough Maple. I hope you'll give us another chance.

I recently had the chicken salad sandwich special and it was fantastic. Delicious artisan bread with raisins, wish it was on the regular menu. Always offering a special sandwich of the day along with a large menu of creative sandwiches. This is not your ordinary deli experience at all- all meats are fresh roasted not the thin deli-style slices you get elsewhere. Nice selection of unique baked goods as well. Prices are a little high - but you are paying for the quality ingredients and it's worth it. Inside and outside tables available.
