This is a great place for a cup of coffee/tea. It is busy, but has a quiet hum with lots of room and ambiance... perfect for a read, or a crossword puzzle, or a diary journal entry, or some computer work, ... Highly recommended!

I genuinely love visiting Michelangelo’s when I’m in town. The coffee and pastries are great. Beyond that, the staff is always nice, attentive, and genuinely interested in their guests. That attitude is something I look forward to every time I hit Madison.

A nice break from chain coffeehouses. Had a great gluten free muffin (always nice to find), and an interesting loose tea selection. Michelangelo's has ample space to settle wither with friends or to do some work.

The site has been a State Street mainstay for 20-years. The main counter and open kitchen area is...More

Probably the best coffee I had in recent trip to the USA. Good warm environment and the number of locals also enjoying coffee and a bite to eat did confirm was a local hangout for those enjoying the better things in life.

This is a coffee shop! Great coffee selections. Very nice pastries. Laid back atmosphere. Outdoor seating on State Street one block from State Capital. Enjoy your coffee and enjoy the activity of the street.
