Great espresso, but short of world-class. Tasty pastries and other coffee accessories. Can't go wrong in this bohemian place.

The hubby and I wandered in here while walking around campus, I'd heard of it and had been wanting to try it out. It's a cute little cafe, the food was decent. However, for $17 and hubby not even getting a drink, it was pricey for what it was. If you or someone you're with is a picky eater, this... More

We love going to Cafe Kopi in the evening. Great selection of coffee drinks and teas. Located right downtown in 2 storefronts, the place is packed with quaint character. Wonderful for lunch and a light dinner.

With many patrons studying, I felt slightly guilty that my gf and I were talking so much, but, hey, this is a public place, so we enjoyed ourselves while we got caught up. Nice light atmosphere where you can get a bite to eat with a nice coffee.

If you are looking to get away from the Starbucks experience, then Kopi is your place! Great coffee and teas and treats and I just love love the atmosphere! Really cool staff that are always friendly and located downtown so its so much fun to sit outside on a nice day or night and people watch!

the food and drinks are all excellent, but the building is crumbling, it really needs to close down and be redone majorly before it crumbles...

Hubby and I were visiting his son at Champaign the 2nd weekend in September and also went to see the "45th Annual Broom Corn Festival" in downtown Main Street Arcola (Sept 11-13, 2015). We were looking around for some snacks to eat in downtown Champaign before heading off to Arcola, and came across Cafe Kopi. The cafe has the same... More

Typical coffee house. Students and others there on computers and enjoying a good cup of joe and food. Had a light lunch sandwich. In the heart of many trendy looking shops and restaurants. Went on a Sunday afternoon so not too busy but lots of students walking around with their family due to move in weekend at U of I.
