Reviews for The CRO Café

Have not been in the Temescal Alley for years. My friend wanted some coffee and I already had my shot of espresso. I usually would just try a cup of coffee. Wanted something different.Tried the Chai latte: creamy, frothy, tingling spice. Delicious!Like what they did with small amount of space. Great customer service and staff was wearing masks.

Excellent product, but I don't get the lack of courtesy in one particular barista. Being totally non-responsive to hello, how are you, and thank you is not cool, hip or professional. I don't need fake cheer, but surliness brings down the overall experience. Rudeness is passé. It feels unwelcoming, so I don't mind taking my business elsewhere.

Ordered the iced coffee and an iced americano, both of which had great craft coffee flavors and not too acidic! If you haven’t visited Temescal Alley, budget some time to walk around. There’s a nice ice cream shop and plant store.
