The iced chai was decent, but not worth the rudeness from the counter staff. They were having their own conversation and I felt like I was interrupting when I tried to order, especially when faced with an icy stare. I am a timid person by nature, so I immediately wanted to flee. Afterwards, the drink was slapped down along with... More

I love this place. The coffee is ok but the ambiance of the area more then makes up for it. Right across the street from Starbucks but i would rather hang out here then there.

There for coffee and breakfast but heard they have really good clam... More

I like this place and the coffee is smooth and delicious. The food is also good and they have fresh baked good. They have music and a great seating area inside and out. All in all this cafe is old school and not corporate.

Had a great time at Maude's. Had a strawberry cupcake and coffee was fresh and delicious. Great seating both indoor and outdoor. They also have an adorable sidecar bar! Would recommend and return.

There is a reason Maude's Cafe is known affectionately as "...The Known Center of the Universe." Here is a place that has outlasted competitors, survived the deliberate placement of Starbucks right next door to this local gem, and Maude's even set up a great eclectic little bar called Maude's Sidecar, which will undoubtedly survive the new bar going into the...

Unlike some reviewers we found the staff both friendly and helpful. The location is great and in a pretty part of downtown. I had a rickshaw sandwich that was excellent and would recommend. Maude's also has boardgames so you can while a way an hour or two if you have the time.

Stay far far away from this place. The "hipster" vibe is far from friendly and the drinks are mediocre. It is a clear example of pure hypocrisy. These people expect you not to judge them and yet they blatantly judge you. We have visited this establishment in the past and hoped new management would mean better service.....definitely not the case.... More
