“Not As Crazy as Starbuck's”
Review of Mad City Coffee

Mad City Coffee
Ranked #1 of 15 Coffee & Tea in Columbia

This is a cozy little coffee shop that is not nearly as crowd as Starbuck's. And, it has more local charm and personality. I'm not a coffee drinker, but I had chai tea latte. I was meeting a friend there for a wedding consultation, and it was quiet and comfortable.

Mad City Coffee is a nice coffee shop tucked away in a little business park of sorts near Howard County Hospital. They are fairly spacious inside, with many small tables and free wifi to encourage Starbucking.

They have a lot of different sandwiches, with an emphasis on healthy varieties. I think the casual/bohemian atmosphere they seem to be selling may work against them somewhat as the menu boards are pretty scattered and confusing.

The food is made to order and does taste great. There is a good coffee selection to choose from, which you would expect from the name. Where I have to ding them heavily is on to go orders. They only have clear, thin plastic containers, and they do not wrap their sandwiches in any way. So if you order a hot sandwich for breakfast to go, unless you plan on eating it in the car it won't be hot when you get to work.

Frequent this coffee shop often. Good coffee, that's roasted on-site, bagels, etc. and light sandwiches. Good atmosphere. Family visited from out of town and enjoyed lunch here.

My wife and I visited Mad City for breakfast one day this week and had another great time. Great food, wonderful coffee, and simply delicious sweets. If you have never been here, please go!

We had a great time at a coffee house at Mad City. Music was awesome. The place smells sooooo good! I had a turkey bacon wrap and it was surprisingly delicious. Really, out of the ordinary tasty. Great atmosphere and friendly service. Thumbs up
