We really enjoyed our stop at Espresso Royale Caffe in downtown Minneapolis. It has an incredible atmosphere and very comfortable seating, as well as good service. They have a great menu and the coffee was delicious.

This place is hands down the best coffee shop in the city. They offer great specials every day like $2 lattes on Wednesday. There is a great selection of bools to shop from and also local art is displayed on a rotating basis. The baristas are also very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed a delicious Mexican latte in a cozy space with friendly and helpful employees. Plenty of group and solo seating scattered throughout the cafe, including couches and tables and chairs. The large windows of this corner space allowed plenty of natural light even on a rainy day.

This is a great coffee shop in Mpls. The staff is super friendly and service is excellent. They have stamp cards for every 10th drink free! It is near the community college so it has a wide range of custormer types. Highly recommend, it is independently owned, so a much better option than the chains. Pricing structure is competetive and... More

I came in here, grabbed a drink and was using the wi-fi for a bit. The guy who made my drink was cool, friendly. Wi-fi was at a good speed. There were some seats that were pretty comfy to sit at No complaints here. I'd go back again if I was in the area.
