My love for local cafes got me down to this place. There was plenty of parking available at the Clintonville location, which is a huge plus!Ambience is great. Saw good amount of people with laptops, Wi-Fi is available and free, had good speed too. It’s a nice place to arrange business meets for a quick chat and also good for quick grabs since drive through is available.I’d come back any day for the Mayan mocha freeze I tried today, it was delicious with an amazing aroma. My boyfriend got iced vanilla coffee, ice here is crushed and the drink stays colder for more time which is all we need during the hot summer days. :)Staff was friendly. Only downside, a bit expensive, At least for the speciality drinks.

Really good coffee! It's cool that it's local and focuses on single origan and small batches to empower small coffee farmers. More focused on the craft rather than the quantity. It is busy, and the baristas seemed a little flustered, but they did great in ensuring that everything was quick and right.

The best espresso around! Very helpful and polite staff. Nice sitting area and nice outside patio with umbrellas. My only complaint is the lack of nutrition information for the food they sell. I even asked a manager how I could figure it out and he did not know.

Visited twice now. My husband and daughter have enjoyed the coffees and I like the teas. Clean facilities. Customer service Jas been outstanding. I for got to order my macha latte with almond. They had already made when I realized my error. No big deal, they happily made me the one I could drink. On the first visit we had questions and the employee was friendly and patiently answered questions and made a terrific recommendation. We will return.

The coffee shop is indeed unique. Ohio local coffee shop with some flare and fun. The drinks are definitely worth talking about. Their Mayan Mocha Frappuccino, was different, it had a kick of spice to it, making you think back to your old history class about Mayans using spice in their chocolates. The other coffees, aren't the usual "sugary" beverages, you get a solid punch of coffee, but easing into a light sweetness so it's not bitter for those with a sweet tooth. Overall it was great and relaxing, definitely suggest it for local Ohioans and those traveling through.

Crimson Cup is a great coffee chain with delicious drinks and tasty fresh baked goods. The New Orleans cold brew with chicory is my favorite coffee beverage in town.

They are always fast and friendly. I always get the chai latte (cold or hot). Great place even for non-coffee lovers.

Nice vibe with a friendly staff. We just stopped in for coffee to go, but the aesthetic and feel would lend itself well to a good study hangout.

Seriously, the coffee is good, it also depends on what you want. I don't get into the frothy coffee scene, just give me a cup of good coffee. What I like about the Crimson Cup is they have coffees from around the world, and I like to try the different flavors. I would suggest you try them out if you're into tasting coffee. The only downside is the prices, but it's worth it.

Always fast service. Wish they had more than just their medium brewed and available. In the winter I was hoping they'd have their delicious winter wonderland brew going or some more options.

Cozy coffee shop with a relaxed vibe and friendly staff. Wide selection of food, coffee, smoothies, tea and other beverages made to order. I don't get to Columbus often, but this will be in my list for a quick pick me up!

I really enjoy the coffee here. The staff is usually pretty friendly, though I went recently and they were not very nice. It was really busy though so I get it. My other experiences here have been fantastic.

Always super friendly, good coffee, always get my order right. The espresso drinks are better than their equivalents at Starbucks. They have a drive through, and comfortable places to sit inside and out. This is how a coffee shop should be.

Such a great spot to relax and enjoy a cup of whatever you choose! All the employees are really helpful. My favorite thing to order is a type of iced coffee/cold brew called the New Orleans.

Crimson Cup is the best coffee shop in Columbus. I try to go whenever I have a chance. Service at this location is fast and friendly. My usual order is a vanilla latte. The Crimson Cup Mocha is also a good drink if you are looking for something on sweeter side.
