I ate here twice this past weekend. Great sandwiches and the folks always serve with a smile. Lots of tables with outlets nearby for charging, which means lots of folks working on computers while drinking coffee (or smoothies) and eating. Tuna salad was great!

If it ain't broke don't fix it. I love kopi. It has a great vibe and great coffee. We always stop here for coffee after dinner. This is one of the best places to people watch in c-u.

This is my and my partner's go-to place to stop in Champaign when we travel north or south on I-57. I went to grad school in C-U, so it's a nostalgic, but quick, trip back to downtown Champaign, near where I lived for many years....More
