Excellent Beverages, Friendly Staff – Thank god for the little guys! I was a little scared to go to a smaller coffeehouse for my mocha. You never know what to expect from a little place. Wow. Great Mocha! Smooth! A very warm and inviting atmosphere. I sat for a little while in one of the big overstuffed chairs, on their wood deck and read my book. The staff was courteous and friendly as I would expect from a smaller establishment. There is a place to plug in my laptop. So, I can get a little work done away from the office. I didn't try the pastries. But, they did look good. The only negatives about the place is sometimes a little cigarette smoke wafts in from the front door. But, that happens at most coffeehouses. I can deal with it. I don't know when I'll go back there, but, I definatly will be back. Thanks Latte 101.
Bad Customer Service and Smoking Allowed (ew) – Even though my coffee drink was ok (Too much ice blended in) they allow customers to smoke right next to the front door - which of course makes everything smell like smoke. I mentioned this to the employee who told me they got a permit (I later noticed the smoker was a friend of hers).
In addition to coffee, we purchased a rice crispy treat for about $2. It was horrible and tasted like buttery grease so I brought it back to the counter. The employee refused to refund our money or even swap it for something else. She said she was told by the owner to never allow returns of their snacks because they are brought in by a third party. I would think that they would stand behind anything they sell, if they made it or not.
In the end, I hope the $2 they refused us is worth it. I will not return to this coffee shop and will tell my friends to avoid it too.
awesome – If I were coffee, I'd want to be served at Latte 101. I always go here when I go for jogs with my dog. I usually get coffee, but for a treat I get the ice vanilla chi.
Editorial Review – At this locally-owned shop, customers saddle up to the self-serve coffee bar to chose among eight different daily blends, and more than a dozen teas. Store staff prepare an array of Chai beverages, espressos, smoothies and specialty drinks, such as Mexican-spiced cocoa. More than 40 flavored syrups are available, plus protein powder and other toppings.
