Have dined or desserted here many times in recent years. The staff is friendly and accomodating, the furniture and outdoor tables just invite you to sit down and enjoy your food. Recently I arrived after closing, and they took pity on me and sold me a piece of chocolate cake anyway. Sandwiches and entrees are excellent. Check out all the... More

I love Northfield, which still retains a vibrant old-fashioned "Main Street". I really enjoy the selection of 20+ hot teas at this coffee house. They give you a little "seeper thing" which you use to grab the tea out of the jars which are displayed and then you set that in your tea. Lots of seating and a great vibe... More

I love this place. Locals just call it "Blue Monday". It has an ambiance of free creativity due to the many students from Carleton College who enjoy the free wifi and the many quiet small tables. The furniture is comfortable and not matched and tends toward formica tabletops and old lamps. If I have a project to do, I hang... More

The atmosphere is very laid back and chilled. It is a very popular place for students to hang out particularly in the evening. I don't go there as often as I would like because they do not accept debit/credit cards.

We decided to take a trip to Northfield to check out the town and what it has to offer, found this coffee shop and was impressed with selection of coffee and teas available. Prices average. Clean Seating Area. Horrible Bathroom and Unclean. Only takes Cash or Checks at shop. Would likely come back.

We went here, my mother and I, for lunch in August. The food was good, nothing special, and the services wasn't bad. The restaurant itself was quaint.

Great coffee, good pastries and a comfortable atmosphere. Exactly the kind of coffee shop every college town should have :)

Outstanding coffee, expertly brewed to order, every cup is perfect - and the baked goods are sooo tempting! The constant flow of take out customers, plus the 1950's retro furniture that is perfect for the place, and the high quality background music, make this my IDEAL COFFEE HOUSE. I'm a coffee snob - my eldest son had a coffee house... More

Visited here after visiting Carleton. Great little coffee shop with fast free wifi. Coffee was delicious. They only take cash and checks (even mine from 300 miles away!) Staff is friendly and welcoming. Fun place to pass the time.
