This is a beautiful coffee shop located in town center of Berea. Since I don't know my way around the town,  I had to ask one of the locals for a coffee/tea shop and double checked their suggestion on yelp. This is a decent size coffee shop, with several seating options. It is a bit dim inside so may be... More

I've been living here in Berea for about 4 years and I crave Tea. Ive noticed that a lot of places advertise coffee all day everyday so its a relief to visit a place where they have the best of both worlds! I also love their sandwiches and desserts!!!

My husband and I ducked in to this cafe to get out of the rain one day, while visiting Berea. We found that it is a beautiful little cafe with quite a variety of sandwiches on the menu. I ordered a simple toasted sandwich and really appreciated how well it was done. It's a simple thing -- a toasted sandwich... More

We were staying at Boone Tavern, but didn’t want a full hotel breakfast. Conveniently, right next door is Berea Coffee & Tea, for some reason downplaying its bakery activities. After you figure out what to do (go to the register and someone will come along and take your order, find your own table, etc) we settle in. We order cappuccino... More

This is the best place to get coffee and a true honest to God homemade pastry by a fellow Berea resident. He sells his pastry at the Farmers Market also on Wed. And Saturdays. Great little spot for a break in your day or to get you started on your way!

I have enjoyed many years of having coffee and biscotti with my friends for a "girls coffee break" along with having time with my son (1st place he had a REAL cappuccino). It is a beautiful setting and very relaxing and comfortable. The owner is down to earth and cost is reasonable.

BC&T as it is known is a pretty good little place to hang out and do homework and things like that. They have good drinks (non-alcoholic) but their food is mediocre. Regardless this is not really a place to go and get food so I won't dock a star for that.

Where else can you have organic coffee with the Mayor on Saturday mornings?, Where else can you have delicious sugar plum scones, homemade pies and desserts? Where else can you have scrumptious made to order sandwiches. Where else can you pop in to see Berea College students working there way thru school and sitting at the tables on their laptops...
