Spyhouse: 25th & Nicollet

Spyhouse Coffee Shop

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

First Impression: There’s outdoor seating, and I really like their windows.

Appearance/Atmosphere: They have a color scheme of white, mahogany, black, and grey. The lights are white/cream and are different styles but still match. They have a wide variety of seating: booths, booths/tables by the windows, high-top tables, stools, and a bar around the center where the coffee is made. Black is the color that ties everything together. The columns, pipes, and ceiling fans are all black. Windows are open.

Music: Happy, and unknown to me. Music doesn’t overpower conversation, and is a nice background. It sets a good mood.

Service: Nice, nothing exciting. The barista almost seemed bored.

I was nearing the end of reading a mystery book by Lee Child. The book ended awesomely. I always expect great customer service at a customer-service type job, and got only OK service. Hmmm. Also, the guys here are too young for me.– Mary, guest reviewer

Coffee: Pricey. They charge $0.75 extra for soy. I had a mocha, which was good. Our drink came in these awesome cups that were black on the outside and white on the inside. The small cup is 10 oz.

Notes: I can see myself coming back here to hang out or do homework, but not very often. This is a good location and the bus drives right by.

    Extra feature of Spyhouse: just a few blocks from the free, terrific art museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and the art school Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), so it’s a good place to come before or after a visit!
