I went to Ike Box, as it's a popular place to grab some coffee and study in any one of their many rooms. I ended up in the main ballroom and while my coffee was good, I was distracted by the big screen playing football on the wall. I know it's meant to attract other people, but for a place... More

The Ike box is a large expansive coffee house with three floors. The basement and upper floors have meeting rooms that can be reserved. The rooms are not "fine dining" and are very rustic, unfinished, with odd tables and chairs. They are serviceable and many organizations pay a reduced rate for them.

The best coffee houses also serve as great community gathering places. Here in Salem, one of the best is the Ike Box. They provide responsible employment for needy youth.

Great coffee and pretty quick. They are friendly and remember a face, and often what you ordered last time. They have plenty of indoor seating with a stage and large screen when needed and place(s) for meetings. They also have a good assortment of breakfast breads and juices.

This is the best place in Salem's Capitol Mall to get coffee. Friendly staff, good quality coffee (Sisters), great ambiance and just generally a great place all around. Oh and you're helping train some of Salem's future leaders to boot.
