The coffee here is fantastic. I've been buying their 12-oz bags of coffee and have had them grind it for my French press. Comparing it to a similar coffee that I'd been buying at Starbucks is just not a fair comparison. The J Rene coffee...More

A few things about J Rene...staff is well trained and efficient. They take each cup of coffee seriously and the result is a great latte every time I go there. The cafe is nice and pretty relaxing, although the seating is not super comfortable. I...More

They have great coffee. The Baristas were fast and friendly. The ambiance is positive upbeat. Just far enough from downtown that parking isn't an issue. The place is very clean. Upscale prices. The Diedrich coffee bean roaster looks cool out in the main area

I was craving a mocha latte. It needed to be comparable to one I had at a little boutique coffee shop while on vacation a couple of months ago. The “Chain Coffee Shop” was not going to do it with the syrupy sugars. We found...More

Just stopped here, for a quick coffee for my husband and tea for me. The space is beautiful, simple but elegant. Great space to work, meet with colleagues and friends, or for a date.

Coffee is well prepared and their regular blend very good. You get to pick the style and brewing method, something very few places offer. My only criticism is the sound quality in the place is poor, very noisy and hard to hold a conversation. And...More

Pretentious, uptight and sterile. The place reminded me of a machine with everything in perfect alignment and the staff were robots with expressionless faces - similar to Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory with the Oompa Loompas. Normally, one walks into a coffee shop and...More
