Excellent coffee. Pastries, gelato fresh, made from scratch. Panini was out of this world. It was so good we went there three times in 2 days.

This cafe has excellent coffees (albeit my extra hot wasn't hot at all) and a tasty selection of oasteries!

Ideal little neighborhood coffee shop with a variety of pastries, cookies and ice cream. I had a smoked turkey Panini on homemade bread that was fantastic. As was the soup of the day.

I came to visit some friends in the area and they were very careful about how how it was for the children. I loved the cookies there ❤ and the service was awesome. It kind of remind me the coffee shops from Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico (not for the taste but for the place) You should stop to visit

We were driving around Montgomery, AL and decided to look for a Place to have tea on a Sunday. Cafe Louisa is a cute "hole in the wall" kind of place that you may miss the first time when you are looking for it. The inside is quaint, and comfortable, and there ate two tables outside if the weathers nice.... More

As soon as I walked into the shop, I said "It's cold!" The barista agreed. What she should have done was said there is no heat! It was colder inside than it was outside. Even with our hot coffees and keeping our coats on we were cold. When we asked if they could turn the fireplace on, they said it... More

It closes at 5:00pm. So get there before they close. We had coffee, a sandwich and lemon pound cake. All were very good and very reasonably priced. In the trendy Cloverdale area. Worth going out of our way to eat there .

Cafe Louisa has the best cappuccino in town. The chicken salad plate and hummus plate are good lunch or snack options. For dessert, the dark chocolate peanut butter brownie is heavenly and the sugar cookies are great too.

We were nervous at first that this wouldn't be in the most favorable part of town, but it ended up being in a super cute area of town. Very quiet. It was nice to sit out on the front porch area and enjoy our sandwiches and coffee. My husband particularly enjoyed their bread, and he's generally not a big fan... More
