Coffee places in Champaign Urbana
We have a good array of java joints around the area- some around campus and some not. This is not a complete list but these should not be missed by coffee lovers.
Its not Expresso Royale and there are 8 locations in town. Good coffee and decent small food. Wifi always seems to work. Clean bathrooms and a drive through that keeps moving. A winner.
East Lansing Michigan has about 40 of these and now CU has two- one at MarketPlace Mall and a new one (May, 2013) on Mattis near Springfield. Good open space and decent coffee.
In downtown Champaign and maybe my fave. Comfortable, eclectic, good fruit water- they even have a paper thesaurus. Did I spell that right?
This quote is on the header of their site–gives you the flavor of the place:
The Urbana twin of Kopi- great place to retreat to read- especially when the students are gone. This place is so bohemian, like I mean really cool bohemian.
This place is a bit more compact and crowded than the others but has outside seating. Also has a good offering of food.
The seating behind Aroma can be quite nice on the right day.
This is the newcomer and it is located in downtown Urbana. Currently it is a fave of many. Reason? It has wide open light space, the coffee is very good, and the wifi is quick. There is also a cool back room and they have trivia night every Wednesday. Here is the view from Flying Machine’s front windows:
There are others but these are the ones at the top of the list.
