Quaint little coffee shop that needs more seating. But the coffee and teas were wonderful Wish I would have had more time to enjoy, and maybe move up to the window seat to enjoy all of the people watching.

I really wanted to like this place. But alas, I find it mediocre and pretentious at best. The coffee was tasty but not the best I ever had - sorry there are better places on Marshall ave and Cleveland. I find it annoying that they do not have vanilla lattes but have carmel. They do not carry lowfat milk and... More

Whenever I travel to MN I enjoy getting a cappuccino at Koplin's. The cheese plate is the best for an afternoon snack and the bacon and cheese stuffed croissant is a great way to start the day. The staff is friendly and very coffee knowledgable.

Having heard a lot about this small one of a kind cafe, we decided to give it a try. After asking for a decaf latte, the reply was "we don't have decaf". Interesting! Okay how about a large French Vanilla latte? Oh oh! "We don't have any flavors". Maybe it's just me but I can't remember the last time I... More

Kopplins has undeniably the best coffee in the Twin Cities. The taste and quality are incredible and you a discerning tongue will not be disappointed! If you truly enjoy a coffee beverage (no decaf), appreciate a slower paced relaxing experience in a lovely designed space full of locals and regulars and can stand behind a business who not only pays...

Kopplin's coffee is an unique coffee shop started by the 24 year old Andrew Kopplin in 2006. His idea was serving coffee which would replace the ordinary coffee served in most coffee shops. He wanted a coffee that tasted rich, aromatic and smooth on the taste buds. Something that did not leave a raw rough feeling or tasted same. Coffee... More

One of the best cappuccinos in the metro, nice space, tasty pastries. Does get a little loud at times.

Gnarly good coffee and the world's best cream. Some of the friendliest staff as well :) This is not your everyday coffee shop, they take it to a whole new level of art.

This place looked good and was full of Hipsters on a Friday at 9:15 a.m. Don't they have jobs? They must if they can afford the coffee and baked goods that looked delicious. The customers who managed to get served seemed almost as pleased with their breakfasts as they were with their silly hats and tattoos. I left after waiting... More

Syneso espresso machine, house roasted coffees and baristas who know their business: Dopio espresso restretto was deep caramel with crema on top. None of that burnt Starbucks or badly made whatever at the ubiquitous Dunn Bros. shops. Kopplins is the place. Izzys ice cream next door is a nice complement although VERY expensive - even more pricey than Shanghai where... More
