I have lived in the area of this cafe for the past year, and it continues to be my absolute favorite place within the community to simply sit, enjoy tasty and well-made food, and be loved. Within my first few visits the baristas all learned my name and my favorite order, and all the staff strive to make sure all their customers are greatly cared for.

This establishment reflects the historic Rondo's community values of truly knowing one another, and seeking to create a space where love is abundant! The community is reflected so well within the staff members here, the emphasis of jazz and connection, and being a great community host to many events (including a weekly shared spoken word and being a key establishment within the annual Jazz Fest).

The food here is incredible, the coffee is well-made and comforting, and this establishment will forever be a place of hope, love, and soul.

First time visiting here and it was a positive experience. The coffee shop is on a corner with ample street parking. They serve a variety of coffee and they also have a breakfast lunch menu. The egg and meat sandwich looked and tasted delicious. There is a separate room filled with tables and chairs for extra seating. I would go here again.

Stopped in with family for coffee on our way to church service. Nice people, but espresso was merely average and service was a bit slow.

Tried Wee Claddagh later in the day and the espresso was much better.

Just down the street from my son's apt. is this delightful coffee shop. A truly unique place. Jazz on the sound system, interesting jazz photos on the walls, and friendly service at very reasonable prices. I will go back every time I am nearby.

We stayed in St. Paul off Grand Ave for the weekend. We stopped in Golden Thyme for the quick late morning snack and coffee. The danish cinnamon roll was good, but the coffee was outstanding. The coffee flavor are all named after jazz great artist (very unique)! They were out of a couple of items initially requested, but no big deal. Worth a visit.
