It is a small place so you might not have a place to sit but the coffee was really good and the pastry melted in my mouth. Staff was very nice and friendly. Highly recommended!

I have been two times to Comet. The first time I chose one of their pourovers which I really liked. The second time though I had an espresso which I did not like at all and did not even finish, as it was too sour, or acidic, for my taste. I first thought that maybe something was wrong with their...

Don't always expect service with a smile, the staff can be frosty. But, the coffee really is very good.

On my third attempt I managed to visit at a time when a seat was available to enjoy a coffee and read a book for a few minutes. There was a buzz to the place, lots of people obviously enjoying their coffee, and despite being very busy the baristas were friendly and took the time to make me feel welcome.... More

I had a latte that was probably one of the best ever. The shop is located in Nichols arcade and is very small, without much seating room.

They have very good coffee and a nice looking interior (though small) that invites you to sit down and watch window shoppers in Nickels Arcade. Very nice people serving the coffee.

While the inside seating is tight, there's plenty of room outside in the covered Arcade. We loved the coffee and chocolate croissants while people watching. No complaints - definitely recommended.

Love this place. Great coffee with an added personal touch. I love the atmosphere inside and better yet the outside tables in the Nickels Arcade. Stop by and have a seat!

I love good coffee and don't mind spending a little more to get a really good cup. Comet Coffee lives up to its reputation for quality, handcrafted coffee. Pourover does not guarantee you a good cup of coffee. in many ways, it is easier to make a bad cup of coffee by hand than by machine. I've been disappointed many... More
