Rudest service we have had in a long time, maybe ever. Coffee not that good served in plastic for premium price. Got a lecture when I tried to pay in cash. Not sure how this place is even in business.

Awful place. The owner is bossy, rude, and unpleasant. She does not treat employees nicely. The place is rather dirty and the food is simply awful.

The menu said it was "the greatest BLT" or something like that. It was very good. My wife had a yogurt smoothie that was good as well. Their menu has quite a few offerings.I saw on another review that they don't take cash. We paid our bill in cash. I enjoyed the uniqueness of the place.

Comfortable, friendly, good service. Note: they don't take cash, only credit or debit cards. Near university, Burnet Woods, good neighborhood for walking.

I have had one of least favorite coffee shop experiences at this place. The food and coffee is ok but the owner or manager was horrible. I had a question about my bill and she did not want to help said I could not do math. When she added the bill up again it came out $9 less. Then blamed... More

Unique snacks and meals, and great drinks. There are several vegetarian/ earth friendly snacks. Wide variety of coffee drinks, tea, and alcoholic beverages. Good place to wind down. Bring your computer or a book and just relax for a few hours. Check out local artwork and unique decor. Service isn't always super fast, but it's a very cool laid back... More

This place is very eclectic and definitely caters to the college crowd having large tables and good pricing. I had one of the cheese sandwiches made with fresh cheese from nearby Findlay Market. They serve breakfast most of the day until 4 pm, and the coffee smells good.

When I first walked into Sitwell's, I was impressed with the eclectic charm of the coffee joint's decor. Their coffee is pretty good, with a full menu of various drink options and a ton of variety, both with alcoholic and nonalcoholic coffees. The food is also delicious. I really enjoy the breakfast sandwich and the cheese plate. Atmosphere is where... More
