Good Place! – I visit this establishment weekly. The staff is friendly, the coffee is good and the uniqueness of the store items is fun to check out. I wish there were more Kobo locations as I'm so tired of seeing a Starbucks on every corner. Kobos also has daily specials, give them a try. ;-)
Not A Clean Establishment – I frequent this estalishment as I work nearby. The doorway entry is always very, very dirty making me ask myself what else is dirty and/or clean. The answer is quick to find with the service island near the entry door with cream, sugar, etc. is also frequently dirty with spills/debris from other patrons. The staff at the 23rd and Vaughn Location are very nice and friendly, but I do not feel they take any pride in the place they work as they make little effort to keep it clean.
This merchandise outlet has a coffee bean store and cafe as well as beautiful kitchenware, discounted prices and heavenly java. – In Short
Cooks, bargain hunters and coffee-lovers shop and sip side by side here. A small section of the store is given over to half a dozen tables, where customers can enjoy one of four coffees du jour, espresso drinks, pastries or juice. A heavenly, coffee-bean aroma permeates the store, thanks to the roasting that takes place just yards away from the retail space. The outlet offers beverage-related accoutrements, cookbooks, pots and pans, gadgets, glassware and dishes.
Fresh Coffee in Abundance – Having been a customer of The Kobos Company for over 15 years, I have tried the competition and always return to Kobos, as they are the freshest and most true to the flavor of the bean- rather than covering it up with a dark roast. I love their attention to product quality, and miss the glory days when they were the "big boys" of coffee in this town.... maybe they will reopen a few more stores?!?
GREATEST GROUND AROUND – Being in the coffee business ought to qualify one to be the best judge, also having roasted my own and freshly ginding makes me favor KOBOS above all else.
Great bargains – You can find some great bargains on high-end items for the kitchen, from table linens and glassware to gadgets and pots and pans. I usually walk out with something cool--and they have great coffee drinks, to boot.
